Very pleased to see how they reacted to being down 2-0 early today. I said it early in the week that 6 points were a must this weekend and they went out and delivered just that. Great weekend for Dzingel getting 3 points each game. Max was also great both nights but overall the team as a whole just went out and played 2 decent games and now are in 3rd place. Off to the land of Sparty to play a very tough team who gav theGophers all they could handle and more this weekend. Michigan State is still the only team to take points from Minnesota.

I've come to find out there is no consideration of goalie rotation by the coaching staff. It is reported that they are working both hard to bring on constant improvement and at this point in time until something changes both Tompkins and Frey should get playing time.

Then why did Frey play today?

Is anyone else headed up to the Sparty series this weekend? The Knucklebucks are making the Saturday game of the series their annual road trip, so there should be a decent amount of OSU fan representation....or at least a bus load!

OSU Women swept St Cloud State and will host Wisconsin this weekend at the Ice Rink.

I wasn't told that specifically on why he got the whole weekend. I can only assume based on what I was told he probably came out on top in this week's practice and earned it.
They are eventually looking to make one or the other the starter but for that to happen one probably has to pull ahead of the other in their evaluations.

I am making the trip from toledo providing we don't get buried with snow.

Found out today somebody's really dropping the ball (or puck) on the 50th Anniversary celebration next Saturday. MANY of the hockey alumni have not been contacted and knew nothing about it!
Only 3 of our first squad from '63-'64 will be there and that's because one personally called the other two and told them about it!
Is this REALLY the best the University can do on recognizing this milestone?

Center ice was lined with alumni this afternoon and I think OSU did a good job recognizing them and celebrating 50 years of OSU hockey. Looking forward to the next half decade. Where exactly was the ball dropped?

That's the only thing holding me back from making hotel reservations at this point. The Friday night game will be the early game on BTN.

We are now in 4th place...one point ahead of Sparty. We need at least a split and preferably a sweep again this weekend.

Nice job by the Buckeyes this weekend getting all six points. What's everyone think of our chances in East Lansing? We took four of the six points at home last month. I will be content with a split up there. I cannot rightly expect this team to go up there and sweep. I am fine with three points at Munn. Anything more than that will be a bonus.

Where exactly was the ball dropped?There was debate on whether ALL alumni got contacted about the event due to them not updating contact info on their end or was there not efficiency on doing it on OSU's end.
The alumni also used to be shown the courtesy use of a double suite. Wonder what caused that to change?
Considering the number of players we have had in a 50 year span the turnout wasn't that great for a 50th celebration.

Who was having this debate? Was there an expectation of every OSU hockey alumn attending? Hell, half those guys needed oxygen and an escort to get onto the ice! #GoBucks

I think our chances are good, but we need to get Gedig and Dalrymple back healthy and on the ice. Def need our captain back. We've proved we can take on Sparty in our barn and theirs with a sweep there last year. It will come down to coaching and which team shows up....either our Friday night Mich State series team or our Sat night Mich State series team. There was a major difference between the two. If we play like we did this weekend and in past weeks, we will sweep and bring home 6 points.

When's the last time you saw a coach pull the goalie with 12 minutes left?! Even the easy empty netter will help Ryan's stats!

We saw it this fall, with the Minnesota Duluth or Niagra series, can't remember. Pulled their goalie in the SECOND period to try and get some momentum going. Somebody help me out here with info and game.

Somebody help me out here with info and game.Was talking with alumni at the game and somebody brought up a game where it did work to get a team back in it though they eventually did lose. Can't recall it now - senior moment!

I believe North Dakota has made that work once in the past I think someone mentioned on here.

I just want to know who had this expectation of every OSU hockey alumn attending and who was having that debate. I feel the history of the program was well represented both pre-game and in-game.
