    Baseball players I think take the cake for having the most bizarre injuries. There's everything from Sano's recent injury to his foot by slipping on some stairs after a "Calvalcade of Champions" parade to the time over 50 years ago when the late Twins pitcher Dave Boswell once cut his hand while cleaning fish. In the Boswell incident, I guarantee there was alcohol involved. Don't think he got hurt after his fist fight with his manager Billy Martin, but he may have.

    Better Together
    Look into what makes linemates Nicole Schammel, Taylor Wente, and Grace Zumwinkle so successful together.

    Great game today, possibly the best the Gophers have played all year. Definitely the best performance by the defense in several seasons. They were crisp and decisive, but the most encouraging thing was that they were also unpredictable. There were a number of occasions when a Bulldog forechecker came to apply pressure and everyone in the building expected Minnesota to rotate the puck behind the net again, but the defensemen did something else.

    In much the same way, while Zumwinkle scored her power play goal from her usual spot in the left slot, she spent a part of her man advantage shifts on the other side or up top. Over the last few years, the Gophers have felt too predictable, and it's nice to see them breaking out some different looks.

    So Princeton or Syracuse? Records can lie a little, but not this much: Princeton is a top-10 team, and Syracuse is not. No disrespect to the Orange, but they are the more favorable matchup for a team that is looking to advance.

    However as a fan, for the last game that I'm going to watch in person this season, I think that Princeton at Minnesota would be a great game to watch. Both teams want to skate and get up and down the ice, so stylistically, it should make for great hockey. For Tigers such as Wallin, Keopple, Bullock, and Lund, it would be nice to play an NCAA game so close to their homes, so I imagine they will have a good number of fans in attendance. Selfishly, Princeton is a team that I've wanted to watch all year.

    Obviously, I'd love to see Minnesota win today, but if it doesn't turn out that way, I'll at least find that for a silver lining.

    In other news, Eeyore is sounding positive. This can't be good ...

    In other words, he's no longer Still Eeyore? The "original" and I ran into each other on the concourse a few times yesterday and shared thoughts, and our observations (especially on the outstanding play by our D) were aligned. We'll obviously need that to continue today.

    It's too bad Princeton had to play without their leading goal scorer Maggie Connors. Never found out why she was a scratch at game time. She and Fillier were great together. I'm not sure Cornell would have won that game with her in the lineup but we will never know. I think they will give either Wisco or Minny a heck of a game next week.

    And selfishly I'd rather see Syracuse, since I don't remember if we've ever seen the Gopher's play them. I do remember the 6-2 Gopher win over Princeton in 2016. Maybe I just like to see different uniforms at Ridder once in awhile. Another reason I'm very happy the Gophers had the bye and didn't have to play St Cloud again, seeing them 4 times was enough. Didn't like OSU's black uniforms, though.

    I agree. With Neatby, Princeton is better in net than either. The WCHA teams' advantage is of course depth. Look at the +/- for Princeton forwards after the top line, and it looks like that top line must win the game. By comparison, all but one of the 18 Gophers skaters who play regularly are plus double-digits but one, and she's +9. Before the season, I would never have guessed who it would be.

    Playing for a banner and playing well today are foremost but...Count me in as a fan who would prefer to see a quarterfinal match up with Princeton rather than Syracuse.

    I takes a lot to make Still Eeyore positive so consider the ramifications of the level of play seen to cause this...

    The Orange were here for one of those season-opening showcase thingies in the fall of 2011. They did okay on the scoreboard; it was only 4-0, but shots were 50-10. I spoke to Paul Flanagan after that game, and he was kind of like, "Wow." You could tell then that if Minnesota stayed healthy, it was going to be a dangerous team. Brian McCloskey and UNH were here in November of that year, and he had a similar reaction after the Wildcats got thumped.

    This year, we have that type of team that is very tough for an opponent that hasn't seem them before.

    We saw SCSU five times, because we played them in the Minnesota Cup.

    Great player, but are you even serious with this quote! Take a look at this years stats for both Schammel and Pankowski, very similar but Pankowski scored 8 more goals, 9 including today, and to add tournament MVP today.

    Shammel was invisible this game. But if you know much this topic, you'd know she's been among the top players in the country all year. It appears that Milty hasn't seen much hockey relevant to that comment.
    Go Gophers!

    That's rather sporting of you to want to see a quality matchup next weekend. If I compare how Princeton played early in the year at WI to how I saw UM play today, Princeton is the better team. I was fearful of playing them a 3rd time; reminded me of when UW swept Clarkson at Clarkson in some tight games a few years ago then lost in the big game.

    If you notice, I said she is a great player and if you know anything you would also notice Pankowski is also among if not the top player in the country!

    Yes, they have the same number of points. Pankowski had five goals and an assist versus SCSU last weekend. Meanwhile, Bye did a great job against Schammel, shutting her down entirely -- not a single point! As for this weekend, Pankowski had two goals, one an EN. Schammel had two goals, one an EN, plus an assist. The folks in Madison love Annie, I get that, but it isn't like it is ludicrous to think that Schammel is on the same level.
