We're used to regular season winners not making it so nothing crazy there if that happens.

RS B1G champions have made the NCAA tournament every season (5) except 2015-16. :rolleyes:

Great road wins for the Gophers this weekend in South Bend.

I thought Bob showed a lot of confidence in the Freshman line by having them out there instead of the GPS line with seconds clicking off the clock. And McLaughlin came through tonight and found the back of the net with 7.8 seconds left. He scored both GWGs this weekend.

I've been watching McLaughlin in the USHL for a couple seasons. He had a terrific season last year with the Chicago Steel with 52 pts. in 54 games. He's a skilled forward who's going mature into a real asset for the Gophers.

Robson was on his game again tonight. Over the last three games, he's made 104 saves on 107 shots.

He has a big EGO. It makes him feel important. :D

I DON'T KNOW! I'm ****ed. After months of watching disappointing weekends, I don't get to enjoy this one. First, on Friday, I left after watching the first to meet some friends in town, intending to watch the rest when I got home. The excitement of watching the game not knowing the outcome is way better than the just knowing the outcome for me. Well, I see a guy at the event who knows me and he looks up from his phone and says "Gophers beat ND 5-1!" I asked him if he had any movies he hadn't seen that I could tell him the ending. So tonight, I decided not to meet the same people to watch the game. Since I was able to pause the game, I ate dinner with my wife before returning to the game. In the third, still tied 1-1, I paused it to hit the bathroom. When I came back it said 'game is no longer being broadcast' and I was unable to see what happened. So I can tell from the comments they won. But if anybody can post a link tomorrow so I can actually watch what happened, I would appreciate it. (Link of game, not just highlights? I get highlights on FB.)

I just hope this isn't the only sweep of a good team this year.

Robson has the highest save percentage in the country for any goalie with at least 500 saves. He's gone after this year and I really believe he could become the first Gopher goalies to get regular NHL minutes in idk decades? What a monster.

You just can’t help but p-ss on everyone’s birthday cake, can you?Hey, the team can only control how they play against their opponent on any given night, the schedule is already set. I'm certainly not faulting them for that and obviously if the Gophers beat someone in their current PWR position, it drags the other highly ranked team down.

Also glad to know that acknowledging reality means you have a big ego, who knew!? :D

I think the point is Trix you're far too negative on here. And yes you've got a big EGO.

I've often likened trixie to Richard from this scene in Tommy Boy:


You're a smug unhappy little man, and you treat people like they were idiots.

Is it too early to say that the Gophers have turned a corner, righted the ship, figured things out, etc etc? I have to say that they look like a different team than the ugliness we saw in many of their games in the first half.

Too early. A business like sweep over a beatable MSU team and we can go into the next two home weekends with realistic hopes of sweeps or "three points". I don't think anyone in the Big Ten is great. OSU the most talented. But I think one Big Ten team in the FF this year would be a win.

I have to say that they look like a different team than the ugliness we saw in many of their games in the first half.I didn’t get to see the Friday game but winning while getting outshot 42-17 is interesting to say the least, I’ve gotta imagine some luck and Robson were the keys there. Yesterday was a bit lucky too, they probably gave up more grade A chances than they created but got lucky that a couple didn’t go in against them and cashed in on the few they got. Also I get that Notre Dame was higher up in the PWR before this weekend but they’ve been inconsistent and don’t have a prolific offense from what I can tell.

The team is getting the results right now but the margin is so slim and they can pull out wins vs good teams or lose to Ferris/STL/MSU on any given night. We’ll see if they can sweep the next series because they need to if they’re gonna keep climbing the PWR ladder out of the hole they’ve dug.

Also those ASU and OSU series will be huge.

On Friday Notre Dame looked a little like Penn State in that they were shooting and putting pucks on net from just about anywhere. The announcer even commented that the Gophers had at least as many "Grade A" scoring chances as the Irish. I didn't think that was the case last night, and would agree that the Gophers got a little lucky.
