Still waiting to see any evidence of this.

Are you suggesting UND games have as much viewership as Minnesota games? If so, you're in the minority and I'm ok with you thinking that.

If UND did in fact have as much TV viewership for their games as Minnesota does, they would have more games televised and a better TV deal.

Or, show me where I can find TV ratings for college hockey games and I'll give you the hard evidence you're looking for. I don't know where to look.

Then again, you could always look for yourself. Either way, like I said, I'm confident enough that enough people generally understand this to be true because of the reasoning I mentioned above.

What's the going rate for ducats? I heard on Madison radio this afternoon they are between $300 & $500. :eek:

With a little help from a student at the U of M, I wrote a preview for this series. Even as a Bulldog fan, I can admit this is one of the greatest college hockey weekends the season has to offer. Especially over Hockey Day Minnesota :)

Enjoy.

Interesting article, and I have to say I tend to agree with most of what was written, with the exception of the prediction (for my take on this series, see my post from the first page or two).

The one question that I have, what is Minnesota's record on Hockey Day?

Quick check reveals 4-2. Win against DU in 2007 5-4, Loss against DU in 2008 4-1 (at Magness), Win in the 8-6 thriller at SCSU (at NHC) in 2009, Loss 4-1 against SCSU in 2010, Win against DU 7-3 in 2011, and Win against CC 2-1 in 2012. DU three times (!) on Hockey Day Minnesota, SCSU twice, and CC once.

Thanks! I'm really surprised they haven't played more Minnesota teams. In the future, the Minnesota Tournament is over Hockey Day right?

I've heard $100 minimum for SRO, but it's probably higher than that now.

Thanks :) ... I honestly have no idea, but someone should figure it out. Also, I wanna know the Goph's record when Ambroz takes a penalty vs the times he doesn't... Someone get on it! To lazy :p

UND's record when Jim scores is 1-0 if that matters.

Maybe he's the new Mario Lamoureux of the team. I believe UND was unbeaten up until his last game of his senior season when he scored a goal.

Either he didn't score a lot or that can't be true.


...can it?

Mario Lamoureux scored 17 career goals. He had two 2-goal games, so he scored in a total of 15 games in his career. In those game, North Dakota was 14-1-0. The 1 loss was Mario's last game, when he scored a weird deflected goal in the tail end of Minnesota's 5-2 win in the Regional Final.

^ Already answered that above. Minnesota is 4-2 on Hockey Day Minnesota. FS23, as for your question about the Minnesota tourney *shrugs shoulders*. I have not paid close enough attention (or am not in the know) to answer when the Minnesota tourney will be held. Sorry.

I figured there was no way he scored more than a handful of times. (And I was right ;) .)Still pretty decent to score in 15 games and win all but one.

He was never much of a scorer. I didn't even think he had 17 goals...I thought it was around 11-12. But yes, it was pretty good run. When North Dakota scored that goal, and they announced Lamoureux as the scorer, I was a bit bummed knowing that the streak ended, but also curiously optimistic to see if we would pull off a miracle. It did not happen. :p:D:D

Mario was unusually good against Minnesota. He scored 5 of his 17 goals and 9 of his 46 points in 15 games against Minnesota.

Most of the Sioux skaters are unusually good against Minnesota.

ftfy.

(Seriously. When I watch your players most of the year, it can get ho hum and boring. Come the Minnesota series, everything changes. Such a terrible loss for college hockey with us being forced into the Big Ten.)

The same could be said for Minnesota. It's definitely an intense series, and one the players probably want most desperately to win.

It stinks that the series will be going away for awhile, but it is what it is. That being said new (and in some cases old) rivalries will emerge and take its place. The next time these two squads meet, most everyone on these squads (if not everyone) will have never played each other (minus the potential NCAA Tourney matchup). Only the old fans will remember this series' glory days.

No. We're breaking up with you, just let it go.

Well, tomorrow's game day one of the last conference series between the Gophers and the . . . Sioux. My first memories of Sioux hockey include seeing Bill Butters get in a fight with fans after getting the boot at a game at the old barn in GF. The flame was bright then and it has stayed bright for all these years.

Cheers Gopher and Sioux fans. May this weekend do justice to a great rivalry.
