DU played the late game yesterday not to mention an extra 2/3 of another and UND rolled 4 lines in a 6-0 rout, physical edge UND. DU lost 2 of 3 games to UND this year including the Broadmoor, psychological edge UND. No excuses for the mighty green and white, roll hard and get it done.

Off to Sensers! They have the game and beer.

See you @ Sensers. Can't miss me - I'll be wearing a Sioux jersey. :D

Jason Gregoire. We should have no excuses to not win. Go Sioux!

Here's to a classic, hard hitting and CLEAN game between the 2 teams. Hopefully the ugly stuff is left home and we can play some great hockey tonight! May the best team win!

Given that Denver actually got a challenge in their game, while you guys had it easy, I would give you the nod in tomorrow's game. It'll be a tight one but you'll pull through nonetheless.

All irrelevant. It's UND-DU. These teams dislike each other, and DU would be up for this game even if their last game ended one hour before puck drop for this one. Besides, I remember watching NCAA tourney games in years past and thinking that a team might be in trouble because they went to OT the night before, just to watch them win the next night.

There is no psychological edge. DU split with us in Grand Forks, and the F5 championship could have gone either way very easily. DU matches up to us very well, and they know it. They know that one bounce goes their way last week and they have the Broadmoor and the 2/3 season series lead. I'm sure they'd like to exact some revenge for last week. As to winning 2 of 3 from DU, the 2004 UND team didn't lose to DU in 4 regular season meetings. We went 3-0-1, including wins of 8-2, 6-2, and 6-1. Anyone remember what happened in the NCAA tourney that year? I see no psycological edge. And Brittain has the ability to shut a team down the way that Berkhoel did in 2004, he's already shut us out once this year.

Having Gregoire back is fantastic, he should give us a lift. He does improve our chances of winning. But we haven't exactly dominated DU this year even when Gregoire was in the lineup. In fact, DU leads in total goals 8-7 in our match-ups for the season. I want UND to win, I hope we win, but I won't feel confident in getting that win until and unless the game ends with more goals on the UND side of the scoreboard.

Going into the NCAA tourney, the teams I thought had the best chances of knocking off the Sioux, in order, were BC, DU, and Michigan. We don't have to go through BC. But if we're going to play for a national title, we'll have to get through both DU and Michigan.

Glad to see you're pulling for UND! :D

I repeat your hope that the ugly stuff gets left at home. :)

Yep.
Should be a battle today. I wouldn't be surprised if either team won.

Feels too much like 2007 when Minnesota won the regular season title, the Broadmoor in OT, and then had a rematch with the Sioux one week later. I have a pretty strong feeling this will be the last time we'll see the Fighting Sioux uniforms on the ice, but I hope they prove me wrong.

Is the game on espnu? I'm at a restaurant and they're all watching hoops and I'd like to **** them all off and put hockey on.

Wow, I certainly was not expecting a 6-1 Sioux win!
What an impressive regional for the boys...outscoring the opponents 12-1. :eek:

Onto the Frozen Four in St. Paul!!
Go Sioux, knock off Michigan!

Congrats to UND. They have lived up to their pre-season billing and I have them as the heavy favorite to win it all. I won't mind UND taking Michigan out back to the woodshed and laying a beating on them. Good luck the rest of the way.

We do well at the X. I am feeling good about this Frozen Four. I am confident in the Sioux. I just wish it was next weekend.

I didn't start to relax until it was 5-1.

Denver will be back next year...count on it.
