Game Update Post

The fans are starting to get revved up for this game today. Coach Lucia and Coach Umile have announced their starters in goal. For the Gophers, Travis Weber will get the start, while Ty Conklin will man the net for the Wildcats. Puck is set to drop in about 30 minutes, so get ready for what looks to be like a classic!

Teams just finished up warm-ups, and both squads look ready for today. New Hampshire will wear white, while Minnesota is in maroon.

I just finished talking with Gopher assistant coach Bob Motzko, who says that Minnesota will look to come out strong early and fly up and down the ice all day. New Hampshire assistant David Lassonde responded that New Hampshire is looking to open things up today as well...so be prepared for fire wagon hockey today ladies and gentlemen!

Introductions just finished up, now who will come for the national anthem?

It's the hip band EVERYTHING!!! That was wonderful...but it does make me wonder...who really does have the hooch?

The bands are both in the arena, and the crowd is electric here this afternoon. Troy Riddle and Jason Krog are set for the faceoff...and we're UNDERWAY!!!

1st Period:
- The Gopher top line is off to a dominating start. Riddle wins the draw back to Ballard who makes a quick pass along the far boards to Vanek who beats Steve O'Brien and gets a nice shot on net, but Conklin gets the glove over it.
- Matt Koalska nearly puts the Gophers ahead, as he wins a puck in the neutral zone, comes down the near boards, then makes a beautiful toe drag and rips a shot through Christian Bragnalo's legs that fools Conklin. Unfortunately for the Gophers, the puck sails just wide of the net. Still 0-0, but it's all Minnesota early. 18:30 left in the 1st.
- Thomas Vanek Scores!! New Hampshire tries to clear the zone, but the puck bounces off Johnny Rogers near the blue line. Troy Riddle picks it up, and finds Vanek at the far dot, and Vanek rifles one over the sliding Conklin, and it's 1-0 Minnesota.
- It's still all Gophers here early. Minnesota's Andy Sertich levels Jason Krog in the neutral zone. Jon Waibel picks the puck up, and circles around the net, then finds a streaking Jake Fleming coming into the slot, but Fleming's shot goes just high. 16:30 left in the 1st.
- Conklin with a tremendous save to keep this game at 1-0. Vanek gets the puck along the far boards, cycles it down to Riddle, who fires a cross-ice pass to Gino Guyer. Guyer flips a wrister that looks destined for the back of the net, but Conklin just gets the toe of his skate over to send it wide. 15:15 left in the 1st.
- Jake Fleming Scores!! New Hampshire flips it out to center ice, and Matt DeMarchi controls the puck, sends a pass over to Fleming along the near boards. Fleming then takes the puck down the boards, then tries to fire a cross ice pass over to Grant Potulny, but the puck hits Eric Lind, and winds up in the back of the New Hampshire net. 2-0 Minnesota
- Jason Krog with a beautiful play, but Weber is up to the task. Krog wins the faceoff back to O'Brien, who then gets the center line and dumps it in. Krog wins the race to the puck, and works his way to the slot. Krog fires a wrister, but right into Weber's glove. That was New Hampshire's first shot on goal. 13:30 left in the 1st.
- Now the Gophers will head to the powerplay. Tyler Hirsch had the puck along the near boards, and attempted to make a move to the slot, but Christian Bragnalo hauls the freshman down to put Minnesota on the man advantage with just over half of the first period remaining.
- Thomas Vanek Scores!! Troy Riddle wins the offensive zone draw back to Keith Ballard. Ballard fires a slap shot from the blue line, and Vanek deflects it past Conklin to give Minnesota a 3-0 lead. Coach Umile calls his timeout to try and settle things down, but right now, Minnesota is on fire.
- Matt DeMarchi with a punishing hit at center ice on Jason Krog. New Hampshire is playing with a little more jump in their step after that goal, but Minnesota is still dominating play here in the 1st period. 7:00 left in the 1st.
- New Hampshire starting to get a little momentum. They've taken over the bulk of the possession, but still unable to generate much of anything. 5:00 left in the 1st.
- Now the Gophers will head back to the powerplay, as Corey-Joe Ficek is unable to hold the zone, and takes down Barry Tallackson who may have had a break otherwise. Interference is the call. 4:23 left in the 1st.
- And New Hampshire kills the penalty beautifully. Gophers were unable to get the puck in the offensive zone, and now the Wildcats seem to have a bit of a spark under them. Still 3-0 Minnesota with just over 2:00 left in the 1st.
- Jason Krog Scores!! What an individual effort! Krog wins a battle along the near boards at center ice, collect the puck and dumps it into the zone. Then, Krog beats the Gopher defender to the puck along the far side, works his way to the far dot, and rifles a wrist shot top shelf over Weber's glove. New Hampshire strikes with just 6 seconds remaining in the first to pull back in it. 3-1 Minnesota
- That's the end of 1. Minnesota leads 3-1. Shots on goal in the first: Minnesota - 14, New Hampshire - 6.

2nd Period:
- Puck had dropped for the 2nd period and both teams looking to set the tone early in the 2nd.
- Mike Souza hits the post! Souza gets a beautiful feed from Krog at the far circle, and fires a one-timer that rings off the post. Still 3-1 Minnesota early in the 2nd.
- The physicality in this one has picked up quite a bit here in the 2nd. Both sides taking the body quite frequently.
- And we have a scuffle! Souza gets drilled into the boards by Ballard, and is down on the ice. O'Brien takes exception to it, and comes in and clobbers Ballard, who responds by taking O'Brien down to the ice. Ballard's initial hit may be a five...we'll have to wait and see how the refs sort this out.
- Looks like Ballard will get 2 for cross-checking Souza, and then 2 for Roughing. O'Brien also gets 2 for Roughing, so UNH will have the man advantage with 16:56 left in the 2nd.
- The Wildcats are putting the pressure on here on the powerplay, but have not been able to get a shot off just yet, as Minnesota is doing a tremendous job of pressuring the man with the puck. About 1:00 left in the powerplay.
- Darren Haydar Scores!! Just after the powerplay ends, Krog takes a pass from Jayme Filipowicz at the far circle, and fires a wrister that Weber gets a piece of, but the rebound lands right on Haydar's stick at the near goalpost, and Haydar taps it in to pull New Hampshire to within 1. 3-2 Minnesota with 14:51 left in the 2nd.
- Mike Souza has yet to report back to the Wildcat bench. It looked like they were concerned with a possible shoulder injury. Big loss for the Wildcats if he's not able to come back.
- A lot of play in the neutral zone now, as both sides have tightened things up defensively. 13:00 left in the 2nd.
- Thomas Vanek Scores!! Vanek completes the hat-trick by taking a pass from Riddle in the neutral zone, splitting the Wildcat defenders, and then makes Conklin look silly with a beautiful forehand to backhand deke that sends Conklin way out of position, and Vanek flips the puck in to give the Gophers a 4-2 lead. It's like a man playing against boys out there with Vanek.
- New Hampshire playing well, but unable to mount much in the offensive zone. They'll get another chance here though, as Thomas Vanek gets called for charging to put the Wildcats on the powerplay with just under 9:00 left in the 2nd.
- Minnesota does a great job on the kill, limiting New Hampshire to only one shot from the blue line that Weber easily hangs on to. Still 4-2 Gophers.
- Under 5:00 left in the 2nd. New Hampshire putting on pressure, but Minnesota playing great defense to keep this a two-goal game.
- New Hampshire will head back to the powerplay. Jason Krog dumps the puck into the zone for the Wildcats, and then Matt DeMarchi hauls down the Hobey Baker Winner to put the Cats on the man advantage with just over 3 minutes left in the 2nd.
- Jason Krog scores!! Krog wins an offensive zone draw on the man advantage that goes to Darren Haydar. Haydar drives down below the net, circles around the near side, and finds a wide open Krog on the far goalpost. Haydar slides the puck over to Krog who taps it in to put New Hampshire back within 1. 4-3 Minnesota with 2:00 left in the 2nd.
- Jay Shipulski scores!! Minnesota dumps the puck into the UNH zone, and Eric Lind gets to the puck behind the net. Lind then fires a bullet up the center of the ice, hitting Shipulski in stride behind the Gopher defenders, sending Shipulski in on a clean break. Shipulski lasers a wrister high glove past Weber from about 15 feet out to tie this game up, and the momentum is now all New Hampshire with just under a minute to go in the third.
And that's the end of 2. We're all square at 4-4. New Hampshire put up 12 shots that period, while Minnesota had 9.

Dunkin' Donuts Center - Providence, RI

Game Update Post - Continued

All Square at 4-4 after 2.

3rd Period:
- Puck has dropped for the third period. Both sides are a little tense starting out...
- Mike Souza still not on the bench for the Wildcats. Reports are that he separated his shoulder, and is doubtful to return. 19:00 left in the 3rd.
- A lot of back and forth in the neutral zone. Neither side willing to give anything up. 14:00 left in the 3rd.
- Mike Souza now back on the bench. The Wildcat fans behind the bench get into a frenzy, and the atmosphere as back in the building following a very mundane five minutes or so of tentative play.
- Vanek nearly cashes in again! Ballard finds Vanek at the near dot, and Vanek wastes little time in firing a shot on Conklin, but the Wildcat netminder makes a tremendous glove save to keep this game tied at 4. 12:00 left in the 3rd.
- Minnesota will head to the powerplay. Gino Guyer gets tripped by Mike Souza coming into the zone, and the Gophers will have the man advantage for two minutes.
- New Hampshire does a tremendous job on the pk, never letting Minnesota get a shot on net. Souza comes out of the box with just over 9:30 left in the 3rd.
- Now UNH will head to the powerplay as Darren Haydar gets drilled after the whistle by Chris Harrington. Harrington gets called for Roughing, and the Wildcats will have the man advantage for two minutes.
- Jason Krog misses just wide! Krog wins an offensive zone draw on the faceoff, and it goes back to Steve O'Brien. O'Brien lets a slapper go from the blueline, that deflects off Keith Ballard, right to Jason Krog. With a near empty net, Krog fires a wrister from just inside the near dot, but it goes just wide. About 1:00 left on the Wildcat powerplay.
- And the Gophers kill the rest of the penalty as Harrington heads out of the box and back to the bench. Just over 6:00 left to play in a fast moving third period. Game still tied at 4.
- Grant Potulny gets robbed by Conklin! The Gophers catch UNH in a line change, and Potulny flies up the far board, and comes in on a 2x1. The UNH defender dives to take away the passing lane, and Potulny unleashes a fiery wrister from the far circle. Conklin just gets his stick over in time for the puck to glance off the knob of the stick and over the net. Game still tied at 4 with under 5:00 left.
- Jason Krog Scores!! Just after Potulny nearly scores, Krog wins a neutral zone draw back to O'Brien, who finds Haydar along the near boards, and Haydar brings it into the zone. Haydar then fires the puck around the boards behind the net, and Souza picks it up in the far corner. Souza then cycles behind the net, tries a wraparound that Weber gets, but the Gopher netminder leaves a juicy rebound, and Krog comes crashing in from the far side and puts the puck in the back of the net to give UNH their first lead of the game. 5-4 UNH with 4:46 left in the 3rd.
- Minnesota appears gassed right now. The Gophers are trying their best, but UNH appears to have control of this one. 3:00 left in the 3rd.
- Grant Potulny Scores!!! Minnesota clears their zone, and the puck bounces out to center ice. Bragnalo tries to control the puck, but it bounces up off his stick, and Potulny picks up the puck in the neutral zone and comes in all alone on Conklin. Potulny rips a forehand five-hole to knot this game back up at 5 with just 2:27 left to play in the third period.
- Chad Onufrechuk Scores!! New Hampshire gains control of the puck near their own blueline, and O'Brien feeds the puck up to Onufrechuk who skates it into the Gopher zone along the far boards. Onufrechuk then fires a seemingly harmless wrister on net, but Weber manages to only get a piece of it with his glove, and the puck trickles over the netminder's shoulder and into the net. UNH regains the lead 6-5 with 1:39 left in the 3rd. Coach Lucia takes his timeout.
- Minnesota's net is empty, as the Gophers win the faceoff and dump the puck into the Wildcat zone...this should be a tremendous final 90 seconds here in Providence!
- Vanek misses just high! Ballard's slapper finds its way through, but Conklin makes the pad save. The rebound shoots out to Vanek who has room on the glove side, but fires the puck just over the crossbar. 45 seconds left...
- Potulny with a chance, but Conklin gets the stick on it and it deflects out of play. Minnesota with an offensive zone draw with just 21.6 seconds left in the 3rd. 6-5 UNH
- Mike Souza Scores!! Riddle wins the draw for the Gophers, but Jason Krog intercepts a pass intended for Vanek. Krog then finds Souza streaking up the near boards, and Souza skates it down for the empty netter. UNH up 7-5 with 10 seconds left.
- And the final buzzer sounds. New Hampshire advances to the Second Round with a 7-5 win. The Wildcats finished the game with 28 shots on goal, while Minnesota put up 32 in the losing effort. What a game! The 1998-1999 UNH Wildcats now advance to take on...the Minnesota Golden Gophers...well, the 1980-1981 version.

Just curious on where 69-70 Clarkson team (#2 in the East and #2 in the Nation) fell?

The '69-70 Clarkson squad finished at #300 with 76.6567 Points. Probably the two biggest things that held them back were that they lost 1/4 of their games, while only playing 32 total, and the fact that they were blocked by Cornell that season for every major award that they could have received.

#30 - 1988-1989 Michigan State Spartans vs. #99 - 1975-1976 Michigan Tech Huskies
May 21, 2013
Honda Center - Anaheim, CA

Game Update Post

Both squads are skating around for warmups. Michigan State is wearing their whites, while the Huskies from Michigan Tech are donning black and gold. The officiating crew is from Hockey East, and I just spoke with coaches on both sides. Spartan Assistant George Gwozdecky told me that State will start Jason Muzzatti in net tonight. Huskie head coach John MacInnes confirmed that Bruce Horsch will get the nod for Michigan Tech. Should be an exciting game! Puck set to drop in just under 10 minutes...

Introductions are over, and here comes today's singer of the national anthem...Bobby McFerrin.

Nobody should worry, but be happy with that rendition of our nation's anthem.

Puck set to drop momentarily...

1st Period:
- Puck has dropped and we're underway from Anaheim!
- What a play by Mike Zuke! Zuke strips the puck from State defensemen Chris Luongo at center ice, skates around Steve Beadle at the blueline, and has a semi-break on Muzzatti. Muzzatti makes a tremendous kicksave on Zuke's shot from inside the far circle, and the Spartans are then able to clear. 18:30 left in the 1st.
- A lot of end to end action here early, but neither side generating any great chances. 17:00 left in the 1st.
- Dana Decker is leveled at center ice! Decker was coming up the near side boards and dumped the puck into the zone, but just as he dumped the puck, Don Gibson laid a tremendous body check to flatten the Huskie forward. 16:00 left in the 1st.
- What a save by Horsch! Rob Brind'Amour gets the puck in the slot after Peter White found the streaking winger. Brind'Amour lets fly a bomb from about 20 feet, but Horsch gets the glove up in the nick of time to deflect the puck over the net to keep this game scoreless. 14:30 left in the 1st.
- The Spartans third line was giving Michigan Tech fits, and they draw the first penalty of the game as Dwayne Norris was tripped at the blueline by Steve Letzgus. 13:38 left in the 1st.
- And the Huskies kill off the penalty in routine fashion, limiting Michigan State to zero shots on goal. Just over 11:00 left in the 1st.
- Now the Spartans will head back to the powerplay. This time, Bobby Reynolds had a step on Warren Young and attempted to get to the slot when Young tripped up the State forward. 10:47 left in the 1st. Still 0-0
- Once again the Huskies stymie the Spartan powerplay, as Horsch stopped the only shot on goal, a long attempt from the blueline by Steve Beadle. Still scoreless with about 8:00 left in the 1st.
- George Lyle hits the post! The Huskies were flying after the back to back penalty kills, and Mike Zuke found George Lyle on a backdoor pass that Lyle lifted over a sliding Muzzatti, but the puck hit the crossbar. Still 0-0 with just over 6:00 left in the 1st.
- The Huskies are abuzz! Stu Oslund had the puck behind the State net, and tried to come out in front, but he was held by Jim Cummins, and drew the penalty. Michigan Tech now on the powerplay with just over 5:00 left in the 1st.
- Uh oh! Michigan Tech will have nearly 90 seconds of 5x3 after Brad Hamilton gets called for tripping. Ron Mason is furious.
- Stu Oslund Scores!! With just a few seconds remaining in the two man advantage, Oslund wins an offensive zone draw back to Ed Dempsey. Dempsey rifles a slapshot from just outside the far circle, and Muzzatti gets a piece of it, but Oslund snatches the rebound, skates to the near post and roofs the puck past a diving Muzzatti. Tech up 1-0 with just 3:24 to play, and still has 38 seconds of a 5x4 left.
- Michigan State kills the remaining Tech powerplay.
- Now Michigan State will head back to the powerplay. Mike Zuke was trying to win a puck behind the net, and got his stick caught up between the skates of Brad Hamilton. Hamilton spilled to the ice, and Zuke goes over to serve his penalty. 1:31 left in the 1st. 1-0 Tech.
- Tech clears the puck out of its zone, and that's the end of the first. Tech up 1-0, but State still has 29 seconds left of powerplay.
- Shots on goal in the first: Tech - 9, State - 7

2nd Period:
- Puck has dropped for the second period with Michigan State still on the powerplay.
- Michigan Tech kills the remaining 29 seconds, and we're back to full strength. 1-0 Tech
- Not a lot going on right now, as neither side willing to give an inch...lots of back and forth in the neutral zone...
- Now Michigan State will head back to the powerplay. Jim Mayer trips up a hard-charging Rob Brind'Amour at the blueline, and Mayer gets called for Interference. 16:29 left in the 2nd.
- Kip Miller Scores!! Tic-Tac-Toe! Steve Beadle finds Bobby Reynolds at the near circle. Reynolds then finds a streaking Miller at the far post, and the backdoor pass works to perfection as Miller slams the puck in the back of the net. 1-1 game with 14:50 left in the 2nd.
- Michigan State really pouring it on right now, but so far Horsch is up to the task. Miller had another tremendous opportunity from the near circle to give State the lead, but Horsch was able to make a tremendous glove save to keep it tied at one. 12:30 left in the 2nd.
- Danton Cole Scores!! What a goal! Cole is able to strip the puck away from Dave Joelson in the neutral zone, and comes up the ice on a 2x1 with Brind'Amour. Cole feeds the puck to Brind'Amour at the top of the circle, and Brind'Amour sends it back to Cole at the near circle. Cole doesn't hesitate and fires it over Horsch's blocker and into the top of the net to put Michigan State up 2-1. 11:13 remaining in the 2nd.
- Michigan Tech takes their timeout. Momentum was all State after that second goal.
- Michigan Tech playing significantly better following the timeout, but neither side able to generate much in their respective offensive zone.
- Tech will head back to the powerplay, as Shawn Heaphy gets called for charging. 7:47 left in the 2nd. 2-1 State.
- State kills the penalty, as Tech was limited to just one shot from the top of the far circle. 5:00 left in the 2nd.
- Following a long spate of neutral zone play, Michigan Tech starts to cycle in the Spartan zone, finally drawing a penalty on Chris Luongo for holding, as Mike Zuke was trying to attempt a wraparound, when Luongo basically tackled him. 2:51 left in the 2nd. 2-1 State.
- Michigan Tech unable to get anything going in the Spartan zone on the powerplay, generating zero shots on goal as Sparty killed the powerplay off.
- That's the end of the 2nd period. Michigan State leads 2-1.
- Shots on goal in the 2nd: State - 10, Tech - 8

3rd Period:
- Puck has dropped for the third period...Michigan State up 2-1.
- Michigan State will head to the powerplay early as Ed Dempsey gets called for interference just over 90 seconds into the period.
- Tech does a tremendous job of killing off the penalty, limiting State to zero shots on goal.
- It's all Michigan Tech right now, and Muzzatti is coming up with timely saves and limiting rebounds. 16:00 left in the 3rd.
- Michigan Tech has the slight edge in play right now, but a lot of puck possession in the neutral zone as State is doing a tremendous job at winning battles to the puck in their own end.
- Now Michigan Tech will head to the powerplay after Stu Younger gets tripped at the blueline by Kerry Russell. 13:18 left in the 3rd.
- Michigan State kills off the penalty, but Mike Zuke had another great chance from the slot, but fired a wrister right into the belly of Muzzatti. We're under 11:00 in the 3rd.
- Tech back to the powerplay, as Pat Murray gets called for slashing. Tech is 1-5 with the man advantage today. 9:50 left in the 3rd.
- And State kills the penalty. Tech had another great chance as Zuke found Jim Mayer at the far circle near the end of the powerplay, but Mayer's shot was gloved by Muzzatti. 7:30 left in the 3rd.
- What a save by Horsch! Steve Letzgus tries to pinch at the blueline and Brind'Amour pokes the puck past him and has a clear break. Brind'Amour tries a forehand-backhand-forehand deke, but Horsch stays on top of it, and gets his leg out just in time to keep this game at 2-1. 6:00 left in the 3rd.
- Tech gets another chance with the man advantage! This time, Mike Zuke is crushed after the whistle by Don Gibson, who gets called for 2:00 roughing. Zuke was down for quite some time following that hit, and he's not out on the ice to start the powerplay. 4:39 left in the 3rd.
- George Lyle hits the post!! With time ticking down on the Husky powerplay, Lyle gets the puck at the top of the near circle, and fires an innocent wrister that Muzzatti doesn't see. The puck harmlessly hits the far post, and State clears the zone, killing the remainder of the powerplay. 2:30 left in the 3rd, State up 2-1.
- Michigan Tech has pulled their goalie. 1:15 left in the third.
- Peter White Scores!! Michigan Tech was in firm control of the puck, but a cross-ice pass just misses Lyle's outstretched stick, and winds up on the blade of Peter White. White is able to gain center ice, and dumps the puck down and into the net. 3-1 Michigan State with just 41 seconds remaining.
- And there goes the horn! Michigan State advances to take on the 1988-1989 Harvard Crimson in the Second Round thanks to a 3-1 victory over the 1975-1976 Michigan Tech Huskies.
- Final Shots on goal: Michigan Tech - 31, Michigan State - 25

How 'bout NOT #29 vs. #100? I'm not sure Lanny Gare is completely healthy yet, and Dick has a LOT of strategizing to do if he hopes to pull this one out! With any luck, the computer will at least start the right goalie this time :eek::D:p

The "computer" almost always selects the goalie that received the majority of the minutes during the season. :)
