Well, I guess I won't be mad with a win and a tie. In all seriousness though, it should've been a sweep. Props to ND for fighting back to get a tie.

A great effort from both teams tonight. Notre Dame really stepped it up. Question for the Notre Dame fans - how does their play tonight compare to their other games so far?

Eesh. Still got out worked. Coasted to pucks too much. Took too many penalties. Yesterday was NOT the team I've watched for the past 2 months. Tonight was closer to the team I'm used to, but still odd. Calle Ridderwall never, never, never makes bad plays or whiffs on pucks. And he did plenty of both this weekend. Riley Sheahan had a bad game yesterday, but started to return to form tonight (he's great shorthanded). Normally they have great puck control, can cycle the puck til the other team is blue in the face and are deadly on the PK. Didn't see enough of that this weekend (although they did add another shortie to the list). I hope to return to form next weekend.

Yeah, the bounces definitely did not go North Dakota's way this evening. It was basically what I expected though. After the first period last night, Notre Dame played well, and it was basically an even series. I think the Sioux had a little bit more of the edge in play tonight, but Notre Dame's goalie put up a heck of an effort.

We hope you dominate the rest of your season...at least until the NCAA Tournament. :p:D:D

We turn the puck over way too much for most good teams, something that you saw a lot of this weekend. The difference was that North Dakota actually made the Irish pay for it, especially Friday night. I think North Dakota's hustle all weekend negated a lot of the talent you would have normally seen. Our effort Friday night was nothing like the previous 13 games this season. Tonight was a little better in that regard, although I think the Sioux still won more battles for loose pucks and were generally the quicker team. IMO only Boston College made Notre Dame look like the slower team this year, until this weekend. Congrats to North Dakota on winning the weekend.

The play of UND might have had something to do with that. ;)

Nice weekend of hockey. Would have loved to see a home sweep, but a win/tie is the next closest best thing.
What a crazy last few minutes of regulation and then another crazy last minute of OT.
I was surprised that ND's tying goal counted...I thought it would have been disallowed for goalie interference.

And then in OT...Frattin's shot clanks the crossbar directly, and then Dell with a huge breakaway save. Both teams with an incredible chance to win with just seconds remaining.

Trupp was 0 for 2 on clean breakaways this weekend. If he would have scored on his tonight, that could have been the nail in the coffin.
Kristo is so snakebitten...he had so many good chances, but nothing.

Good luck the rest of the way, ND.

Homer: But Marge! I was a political prisoner!
Marge: How were you a political prisoner?
Homer: I kicked a giant mouse in the butt! Do I have to draw you a picture?

Nice to See that the Sioux never trailed in this series and earned 3 points.

But did anyone see how Brett Hextall got his upper body injury?

what type of POINTS do you get for non-conference games?
