Stop making sense, you're scaring me JimmyJam!!


UAA played much better tonight than last night. Gave the Nanooks little to no chances offensively and were able to beat the Nanooks defense a lot better than last night. Gunderson was also a lot more solid than Kamal. Would have liked to see our seniors get a few points on the night but I guess Kunyk took care of his last night. Beck and Quinn just must be waiting until next weekend.

I find it funny when UAA fans say we won the skill competition but going in to tonight's game they all knew UAA would have to win the game AND the shootout so if UAA would have won the "skills competition", I'm sure many of you would be saying how fantastically wonderful the seawolves are and how awful the Nanooks are.

Can't help but feel the win was a ploy by the WCHA to save money to avoid sending UAA out of state and avoid bringing up someone from the states to Fairbanks. I mean everyone else yesterday made excuses as to why their team lost so I figured I'd throw that out there ;).

WHO GOT THE CUP? WE GOT THE CUP!
GO NOOKS.

Please use the term "lower 48" and not the "states." We are a State in the Union!!!! Ugh!

Would it even bee possible to have a 20 minute OT if the series tied at 2-2? I'd vote for at least a 5 minute OT and then a shootout, like the current ties are dealed with during the regular nWCHA season.

I don't know. I kind of doubt it's allowed, or if it is, maybe just not feasible. I mean, we'd probably need permission from the ncaa and wcha. I don't know if I've ever heard of a conference game being modified for non-conference reasons to have an overtime period which didn't count. I wonder how hard it is to arrange that. I bet there's a lot of red tape.

Yeah you'd think the previous and current coaching staff would make it more of an emphasis given the recent history of the Governor's Cup.
I'd hate to say it, but I openly question how much they actually care about it. I know they talk like it but in actions on the ice it seems like they don't care as much as they should.

3-1 in 2012 wasn't very close in reality, we scored first but after that we got blown away. Last season at the Sully was 3-1 but it wasn't close either (that was the game in our minds that got Shyiak fired), the first goal was less then a minute in and it was over after that.

The beginning of the end for Shyiak was the 2010 gov cup and the water bottle game. You kept him two seasons longer than you should have but that Final Five trip bought him extra time.

Maybe I could use the term Continental US? Nah, no thanks. I'll say what I want when it comes to that issue, we all have our own ways that we refer to those other states and I definitely don't plan on changing it to please you. :) Thanks for the history lesson though.

Definitely. Luckily, it was a terrible shot, otherwise UAA could have been infamous for this. "Hockey coach melts down" could have been the tail story of local newscasts around the country.

So are we keeping this thread going for the first round or is someone gonna make another one since it's separate from the Gov Cup?

Not so much, I mean 2010 is probably the zenith for you guys, really we had no chance that year, and we had a decent team in 2011 and things looked bright. (Also, the WCHA between about 2005 to 2010 was an absolute madhouse of talent) 2012 was when the wheels fell off and probably when they should've parted ways but by that time the whole Athletic Department was a mess.

I think I got a great shot of you with your UAF letters. The first and last letters, particularly. I'm not sure where I can use it, but I want to.

Hey don't give me away! There might be UAA fans on here who I may or may not have p*ssed off tonight at the game that may or may not be on here or at least read the boards haha. Glad those particular UAF letters got noticed though, hopefully the intended audience noticed them too. :)

True, I was thinking you could have a 20 minute OT because after the whistle blows doesn't it go down as a conference game. Does the nWCHA still have jurisdiction after the final whistle? This happened again this season because the outcome was W,L-L,W for the four games, if there was W,T-L,T situation then automatically there is a 5 minute OT. If nobody scores during the OT, then for the sole purpose of the Governor's Cup we'd need a shootout right? Don't our respective teams pre-season tournaments have a shootout I believe to determine a winner, given special circumstances.

Realistically, there are three ways to break a series tie: 1. A shootout 2. Total goals scored in the series 3. The holder automatically retains in a tie. All three suck in their own way. Any other option is just not feasible either logistically or NCAA wise. The NCAA isn't going to allow a 20 minute OT for a rivalry cup, honestly it's a waste on the athletes for something, in their minds, that is meaningless and has easier solutions.

Yes, in the event of a w-t-l-t, there would be OT and a shootout. The OT would count in the NCAA standings, the SO would not. The OT would be because of that particular game itself, not because they are tied among four games.

The brice and kendall are special. Yes, a shootout can be used to determine a winner, but, if the last game has two winners in it, the rules are different because whoever wins would win the championship. The GAME has a shootout, which logs the game as a win for the championship. Meaning, the shootout counts for double so that there isn't potentially two shootouts in a row, because the NCAA and WCHA would consider the game a tie.

I honestly don't know anything more. I, too, would like to know if any other series has been able to force non-conference OT into a conference game. You're making me think too hard to fall asleep. :(

That's the life as an Engineering student, think of a question or given a question and solve it thinking of all the different ways (and not just the different ways, the different ways from the original different way) to the solution. I doubt the shootout will ever change but if "enough" noise is made about it I suppose something might happen.

You won your cup in a 3 man shoot out. Keep it, we split this year. We're coming back for 2 wins to send you all home for the year next week. Keep an eye out for us.

I'm sorry, I can't resist.


My hand kind of hurts from all the high-fiving I did on the ice earlier!

The brain made me do it. I didn't realize why everyone was making it a point to high-five until minutes ago.

I am not a smart man.

No one will consider UAA an easy win after today. They snapped a good streak we had going.

I will consider next weekend the true prize, like you. And the icing on top of the cupcake. The moist, delicious, cupcake. Everyone is being too nice, especially compared to years past. We've got another series coming up! NO MORE SHOOTOUTS! THERE WILL BE A VICTOR!!!

I feel like we should be wearing top hats and monocles.

I should buy a top hat and a monocle. It'd be more appropriate that mmf wear it though, he's nice and respectful-like. Not like that alaska hockey guy. He should wear a boot. Just a boot. Like in monopoly.
