Yes. Good thing your school has plenty of time to host since they'll be sitting at home.

Just had to add that too. :D

Impressed this game has TV coverage already. That's usually a last minute flurry before someone finally picks it up.

Maybe the gopher fans who bought yale jerseys a couple of years back will be able to resell them to UND fans.

Nah, you're confused, it's obsessed Whioux fans that bought up all the Holy Cross jerseys and continue to still wear them at the Final Five.

No, it's goofer fans that were confused when they implied that UND's loss to yale was somehow even remotely comparable to their loss to HC at the Ralph.

It all depends which Yale team shows up, the one that dumped 55 shots on BC for a tie and beat CC and Denver in their rinks on the same weekend or the Yale team that lost to Holy Cross by a goal. If it is the Yale team that showed up at the ECAC tourney, then there is no hope.

Like you guys did in the 2011 Frozen Four! :D

I think Yale will show up on Friday and acquit themselves well. Yale plays well in the NCAAs when they are an underdog and can adopt an us against the world mentality. It plays to Coach Allain's personality in my view.

What style does Yale like to play? Get up and down the rink and skate, or are they a defensive minded boring trapping team like Wisconsin?

Sure, a lot of the teams in the EZAC may trap, but Yale isn't one of them. Expect the former.

Any Gopher fans making the trip? We should be pulling into town around noon Friday.

I have center ice lower bowl tickets im trying to unload if anyone is interested! I bought em when the Broncos were a #2 seed months ago..... looks like my calculated risk is a complete bust! Though I'm sure this will be an entertaining regional.... I'm looking forward to spending easter with the family. Let me know if your interested!

Same can be said about the Gophers. If the Gophers that we saw at the mid-way point of the season show up this weekend, the maroon and gold will be on to Pittsburgh.

Yes. Hopefully more fans make the trip too.

Gophers overlook Yale because they are still dreaming about a matchup with UND and end up losing the 10-0.

UND rolls through the West Regional on their way to the Frozen Four.

For those who think history determines all, a brief recap:
Initial games 12/21-22 1935. Yale sweeps @ Minnesota 2-0 and 3-1. The first contest is Yale's 300th victory.
12/29-30 1939. Minny evens up with two wins (again at Minnesota) 0-3 and 2-7
12/27-28 1940. This time a split, though again @ Minnesota: 5-2 and 4-5
12/27-28 1946 Another Split @ Minnesota: 6-5 and 2-6
12/28-29 1948: Uh-oh -- A Minny sweep 1-10 2-4
12/28-29 1951 Yale comes back 7-4 and 4-3 OT
12/28-29 1956 Minnesota sweep 2-5 and 0-1
12/28/1978: A single game and another Minny win 3-7
1/1-2 1983: Another Minnesota sweep 1-5 and 4-6
12/30/1994: Yet another Minny win 2-6
12/27/2003: Minny again 3-7

A few things leap out from the history. First, every game has been at Minnesota, until now. And all the games were between Christmas and New Year's other than one series on Jan 1/2. Second, Yale held its own until about 1951 and it's been downhill from there.

So we're due.
