Tie game? MN was obviously only at 50% tonight. ;)

Didn't get to see either game, but I have to assume the reffing was terrible last night and so-so tonight.

No. I think I'd puke if I had to watch anymore DU hockey than I already do.

Well, that was certainly a much better effort by North Dakota. Of course, it's always disappointing giving up a 2-goal lead with less than 10 to play, but I can't say I was surprised. A draw was probably the correct result, as I thought play was relatively even. I wouldn't be surprised if these two squads met up for the Broadmoor, but North Dakota is going to have to play significantly better than they did this weekend if they want to get a top 2-3 seed in the conference. I think playing on NHL ice would make a world of difference, but you might get the same results.

Well done by Minnesota to come back and get the game tied. They certainly deserved 3 points this weekend. I don't see any way that they don't win the MacNaughton. The Gophers are definitely one of the best team we've played all season, although I don't think the Gophers played their best hockey this weekend. They definitely let Wilcox out to dry a couple times, and no goalie is going to make every one of those saves. That being said, their depth is quite impressive. While I think the top lines were relatively even, Minnesota's 3rd and 4th lines dominated North Dakota's bottom lines. That will help you guys out tremendously come March and April.

Anyway, Congratulations to Minnesota on the 3 points. Overall, the Gophers were the better team this weekend, and I have to say that I'm happy with the point (although 2 would have been like stealing). Good luck the rest of the way, unless we meet again of course. And please...crush Denver. :)

I have a friend who lives in the Cherry Creek area who has DU season tickets and he only goes to Minnesota games and maybe UND or CC.

Nice capstone game to one of the most exciting and physical series rivalries ever in college hockey history. This weekend’s series between two perennial titans of the WCHA lived up to the hype with the Gophers coming from 2 goals down for the tie in a playoff like atmosphere tonight at the Mooch (Grade A-). UND played a much more physical, open ended game tonight and nearly put the game away, but Grimaldi and Kristo hit the post late in the game. Nate Condon gets my vote for the star this weekend, with G and 2A last night, and the tying G and an A tonight for a 5 pt. weekend. His speed, puck handling and leadership on the ice have been an added bonus for this talented Gopher team over the last few games. Adam Wilcox played sensational this weekend, making big save after big save and continues to be the backstop this team needs for a deep run in the playoffs (Grade A).

Undoubtedly, this historic battle series will be remembered and missed by all Gopher and UND fans as the epitome of what a college rivalry is all about. However, I suspect we will see these two teams clash again for round 2 at the F5.

Bring on the purple cows!

Go Gophers :)

Hope so, could be one for the ages.

Good. Hopefully tonight's game lives up to the rivalry. Good luck to your Gophers, although I'm not sure if they need it.
Yeah... tonight DEFINITELY lived up to it. Hard fought by both teams, lots of skill displayed on both sides, and plenty of good, solid hits all around without anything dirty. I think both coaches probably went out of their way to make sure their teams didn't take stupid penalties for hits to the head/slashes/boarding/etc. Both these teams are dangerous on the PP, so staying out of the box was important.

And nights like tonight are why I LOATHE B1G GRrrrrrrrrrrr... toss this away so schools that don't even have hockey teams can squeeze out a little more money from BTN... just disgusts me.

Hopefully scheduling space opens to keep MN and NoDak playing on a regular basis... absolute travesty to lose this kind of rivalry.

See you in St Paul when March rolls around.... pretty sure we'll both be there.

Funny watching Dippsy McStupid living vicariously through UND. Go Jan!!



Gophers need a 3rd period like they had last night or it's splitsville.

I don't have to live vicariously through UND, Slap Dick. SCSU is tied for first place.

I don't like UND any more or less than I like the Gophers. Just pointing out the absurdity of Gophers fans saying their team would beat UND 90% of the time.

Even after basically zoning out for an hour, unplugged from the interwebs....still jacked up.

Oh, how I will miss this series. What a weekend of hockey.

UND probably should have won tonight, they carried the majority of the play, even if just by that much. Very happy with 3 points, given the opponent.

Great game. Gothberg played much better than Saunders last night. Gramaldi also looked much better, great snipe by him. Also by Knight.

If you think that's how it was framed have it. I'd prefer to think the context was if these two current rosters both had their A games that MN would come out on top more often than not. 90% might be a bit much but, que sera sera.

He should've flexed his muscles and yelled "Whatcha gonna do North Dakota when my 13 inch pythons run wild on you?"

Whatever it is, it sure looks cool! :cool:



Great game tonight btw. Other than the Sioux blowing it and hitting two posts in OT.

Gotta win that game.


In all honesty, I will also miss this rivalry. Always my favorite non-Badger games to watch.

I mentioned on GPL, if there is any justice in the hockey world, these two teams meet up in the F5 final.

Now THAT would be a truly fitting finale to the WCHA as we know it.

If that happened, Sloe Gin and I were talking, and to get us to NOT go to that game, bidding for tix would prob have to start at about $500.

This Gopher team couldn't have beaten mites tonight, pathetic. ;)

This. Nice of the Whioux to choke away that point. That's going to cost them big time.

Had to sweep to get over 100. I think we'll go with 99.9.
