Well that was far from the Gophers' best effort of the year, but they did just enough including an A game from Schierhorn to get the W. Fun hockey.

Well, disappointing result, but it was a nice seeing these two teams playing again. I thought North Dakota played better tonight, but just had zero puck luck (I counted at least 4 posts). Cam really struggled with his positioning on the big ice, and probably shouldn't have played all 125 minutes this weekend...did not deserve it. Oh well.

Congrats to the Gophers on the win tonight, and getting the better of the series. Good luck the rest of the way, and maybe we'll meet up in March or April.

On a side note, Gopher announcer just said they don't know when these two teams will meet again...what an idiot. They have contracts to play each of the next six seasons.

Pretty good weekend for the gophers. Look forward to the next dance.

Helluva series. Did not expect this result at all. Was hoping for a split at best. I also hope we meet up in April. ;)

Would love to meet up at the Regional in Fargo. The place would be absolutely nuts.

After no wins in the last four games, what makes you think the Fighting Hawks will make the Regional?

It was a fun series.

We miss you, old WCHA.

The relevant question now is whether wins against Big 10 schools are considered club team wins for PW purposes. After last night's embarrassing tie, I hope so.

I guess you won't have to worry about this one.

Because it's early and this team will take a little more time to gel. And I will be at Scheels Arena for the Regional so they have to be there damit ;)

Glad see that coach "Dingle" Berry supports local businesses. It must take the output of a whole fracking well for all the North Dakota crude he uses to slick that hair back.

Also nice to see that #37 can steal a game for the boys sometimes.

We don't know that they will. We knew their D would have a lot to learn, and you never know how things will come together, as defense is a more difficult position to learn at this stage, IMO. One good thing is that they will have a tough conference schedule to get them in fighting shape. But Hawks fans will probably be anxiously watching the pairwise rankings late this season more than they have in the past. UND will lose a bunch of games, but hopefully they will win enough to get them to the dance and then see what they can do.

It still felt like a non conference game.

I noticed that too.

Am disappointed in the "Fighting". Was hoping they would be coasting after their victory and maybe a little complacent when DU came to town.
Speaking of fighting, it seemed like the first period Friday both teams were trying to live up to the old hatred which had been built up in the press and by alums on both sides.

You all realize that this is the typical UND slow start, right? Just sayin'.

Actually this year they started the season with 5 consecutive wins. Not exactly typical...

Slump in Nov/Dec, revive themselves after the break. To me, that's a typical UND season.

I'd like to think the number of empty seats would send a message to the school that they're out-pricing too many fans - this series should have gone over the fire code allowance - but since they obviously are still earning a nicely net sum that's not going to happen any time soon.

Brent - they have a different coach behind the bench and I don't believe UND had any such early season slump last season. Which is not to say they won't turn it around. I think they will once all the young kids get more experience, but past results don't always predict the future.
