Geez, one bad loss and this guy already jumped ship.
Fine, we don't want you back once the postseason begins.

I don't know man. I'm just really skeptical right now...I mean...I don't know...

Stop it! It was a loss to a big rival, but it was the first loss of the year by more than one goal, and that was because of a hot goalie and no bounces going our way. I see a bounce-back next weekend!

We can hope so.
UND needs to keep their stellar OOC record up by doing well against Cornell.

Watched the whole game, I thought both team played very well! It was what we all expect out of these teams!! Kangus stole the show and Eidsness didn't play well that was the difference in the game. Had the Sioux scored on the shot that hit both posts and went across the goal line it would have been 1-1 and a totally different game, but that didn't happen and the gopher went down and got that fluke goal over the head of Eidsness and the flood gates opened!!! I thought it was a very good game!!

I'm not worried, crazy stuff always happens in rivalry games. I wouldn't have been shocked at any pair of results this weekend.

You will never ever ever ever ever convince me that Brad Eidsness is a good goalie, however.

Surprisingly, I agree with this post.

We'll meet again. I just hope that tonight's result is a foreshadowing of that matchup.

he makes a lot of saves that he's supposed to. He never makes a save that he shouldn't.

Well, I'm surprised it took this long.
The Fire Hakstol thread has started again over on ss.com. Nice going Goon. Half the fans over there are close to the ledge already, that might just push them over.

I figured it was time. Venting is always good. :) :D

There is a re-occurring theme. Goaltending is the weak link on this team.

That, and scoring goals.
Not going to win many games when you only score one goal.
There was a lot of action around Kangas this weekend, but no one to bang the puck home. That is where we miss Hextall...well, that, and his stellar one-timer ability on the PP.

I watched the whole game...couldn't see any blaring call outs to make, except Kangas played well, and didn't give up any bounces to the Sioux. He was able to stop the first and second opportunities. The gophers got lucky with some things, and some timing was on their side, like the 1st goal. if the Sioux defender was a split second closer to the puck, he could have gotten on it and cleared the zone.

the Fighting Sioux need a sweep next weekend. I think it can happen, it will help the team mentally and prepare them for the stretch run in to the play-in series for the Final Five.

Eidsness is not terrible but he is not outstanding either. If there is a breakaway or an odd man rush they usually score on him. The main weakness seems to be goal scoring. Almost all of these guys lit it up before they came to UND, but now they are very un-clutch. Kristo is really the only gifted guy and he is a freshmen. It seems they are just throwing pucks to the net and hoping good things happen. They need to shoot to score.

Malone, VV, Trupp, Gregoire, Hexy, Zajac - All of these guys need to score between 15-25 each on the season for this team to succeed. None of them are really in the 30 goal category so it's got to be done by commitee. As brian mentioned scoring 1 goal isn't going to win this team any games. I am not even sure if scoring 3 goals per game is enough.

They are talented and for the most part fun to watch because they all work very hard but they all need to bare down a bit and score!

Like we talked about last night:

When UND is tied/ahead, he'll make every save in the world. When UND is behind? Good luck with that. The clutch "this prevents momentum really getting going for opponent" saves are few and far between.

Me too. He's a good coach from what I can see.
Now Lucia, on the other hand, has obviously lost it. The Fire Lucia threads have been going on here and GPL for over two seasons now. :)
So, I too hope that your coach remains as head coach for a long time. :D

I hope not, at least not while I'm watching.
