    Thumbs up Boone vs tGoons Mile High City #1 North Dakota @ #11 Denver University 12/12-12/13

    The Whiouxs come to visit the Jelly Doughnuts with UND trailing Miami and Duluth in the NCHC standings by 5 points. A sweep by UND puts them solely into first place with Duluth playing MTU and Miami already having started their Christmas break. The only thing that is certain this weekend is that UND will have more fans in the building than DU. Whioux sweeps? Better be UND.

    I don't know about "more fans in the stands", but it will be close without the students. Pios sweep.

    Seems like another likely NCHC split. I'll be in the building Saturday night. Looking forward to some great hockey this weekend!

    They do seem to make the most noise of all DU fans, so I can see why the administration would want them counted.

    UND will be playing without Troy Stecher who is out 6-8 weeks and won't be back until presumably the DU series in Grand Forks. The good news is that even with Stecher out UND will have home ice advantage at Engelstad South.

    Since the 2002-3 season there's only one season sweep --10 years ago--2004-5--when the Pioneers swept the formerly known as Fighting Sioux(fka FS).

    He should be playing.

    Chyzyk is a maybe, I would guess. Supposedly he was practicing. No word that I've seen on St. Clair.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    FWIW, those scores are wrong. Pretty sure the 3/18 and 4/7 games are swapped. I'd also point out that both of the regular season games that year were in Grand Forks too, but it was only a 2 game regular season series that year. The last 4 game regular season series sweep was in 1997-1998, when North Dakota took all four games.

    North Dakota is 22-21-4 in the 47 games the two schools have played since the 2001-2002 season. In that time span, the teams have played:

    1 NCAA National Championship Game (DU wins 4-1 in 2005)
    2 NCAA Regional Finals (DU wins 1-0 in 2004* and North Dakota wins 6-1 in 2011)
    2 WCHA Final Five Championship Games (North Dakota won 4-0 in 2012 and 3-2 (2ot) in 2011)
    3 WCHA Final Five Semifinal Games (DU won 2-1 (ot) in 2005, and 3-1 in 2008, while North Dakota won 4-3 in 2010. The Team winning each of these games went on to win the Final Five)
    1 WCHA First Round Series (North Dakota won 2 games to 1 in 2003, with both games 2 and 3 going to OT)

    The programs have finished in the top half of their conference every season since 2003-2004, with the exception of last year. In other words, the games that these teams have played against each other are almost always very meaningful. It's been a great rivalry over the past decade.

    * I regard the 2004 Regional Final between North Dakota and Denver as the greatest college hockey game I ever saw. It was 60 minutes of absolutely beautiful hockey, with both teams playing their game to perfection. North Dakota hit a couple of posts, and Denver scored one of the flukiest goals I have ever seen to win it (similar to the BU goal that won them the national title over Miami in '09). Of course, had that goal not gone in, the teams might still be playing right now. It wasn't the result that I wanted, but I knew that DU would go on to win the title after that game.

    You obviously delved far deeper than I did.
    Many consider the 2004 Regional Final one of the best college hockey games EVER!

    Even though we are both looking at the 2000s, the intense rivalry goes back to Murray Armstrong's era. The two teams played in 3 NCAA Championship games--1958 (DU's 1st), 1963 and 1968-- in a 10 year period.

    And in that 1st round WCHA series, if the league hadn't stopped using the Total Goals over 2 games, DU would have won 6-4.
    GO DU !!!

    It truly has been a great rivalry, and it has been my favorite rivalry for quite some time now.

    As for last night, that was a very disappointing game from my perspective. North Dakota came out flat, and the Jelly Doughnuts definitely wanted it more. The Sioux struggled to win loose pucks, missed a lot of easy passes, and looked lethargic for most of the first two periods. It didn't help either that MacMillan got jobbed on the checking from behind major (certainly a penalty, but no way was that a major). Denver did a pretty good job of keeping North Dakota along the boards, and the Jelly Doughnut's goalie was solid (although he did leave a few juicy rebounds that somehow managed to hop over sticks). Overall, I thought Denver played about as good as the #11 team in the country should...unfortunately, North Dakota played nowhere near the level of a top 10 team. Kudos to the Jelly Doughnuts...and I really enjoyed the constant advertisements appealing to school spirit, urging the crowd to "shake your jelly."

    Hopefully North Dakota comes out tonight and plays well. If they do that, I can live with any result.

    DU really had the refs in their back pocket last night, but I'm not sure it made all that much of a difference. UND needs to learn to play more than 20 minutes of 60 minute game.

    Had you said:
    "...unfortunately, North Dakota played nowhere near the level of a #1 team." It could be considered a backhanded compliment to the Pios, but N-0-0-0-0-0

    But seriously, I expect the fka Sioux to come out "hot" tonight. And MacMillan certainly adds some punch--fiquratively. BTW, Stickney initially thought the MacMillan penalty was for knee on knee hit on Loney.

    Hoping the Pios keep their composure and step it up and meet the challenge with another win.

    I honestly don't know how they called checking from behind, especially considering that MacMillan "hit" him from the side. It really looked like Larazza just lost an edge, and then he milked it on the ice for a bit. I would have been fine with a 2 minute boarding minor...although I'm not 100% certain that it was even that.

    That being said, I don't think it would have made much of a difference. Denver outplayed North Dakota last night from the drop of the puck. We really came out flat and got out-hustled to pretty much every puck. It certainly seemed as though the Jelly Doughnuts wanted it more...they certainly shook their jelly.

    Coming into this series, I had Denver as about middle of the pack in the NCHC (which isn't a dig at all, considering how good the conference is), and I had North Dakota as the top dog. After last night, I would move North Dakota down to #2 or 3 (behind Duluth, and right in the mix with Miami) and I would probably keep Denver about the same (fighting with Omaha for #4/5, but clearly ahead of St. Cloud). The NCHC is going to be absolutely brutal this year, and that makes tonight's game critical. Getting a split on the road is a good result.

    FWIW, I feel bad for CC (I'm sure you do not feel the same). The Tigers are going to be lucky to earn 10 points on the season.

    Anyway, hope the Sioux can come out strong tonight and play solid. If we do, I like our chances. Of course, if the Sioux play well and Denver gets the win tonight, I think I'll have to adjust my tune on where the Jelly Doughnuts should be ranked. Either way, I'm sure it will be another tense, physical contest that will add to the rivalry.

    What was story with post-game fire alarm last night at Magness? Tim H during post-game show announced they were asked to leave because of a supposed fire, and you could hear the alarm in the background.
