A split at home is not great but I did enjoy the Saturday game. My son booked a room at the Blackwell in January because he knew he had tickets to the football game. We added an extra night and caught both hockey games as well. Perfect way to relax for 90 minutes before walking over to the Schott,. Nice drive back to Springboro this morning.
One thing is clear - I do not want to play against Sasha Laroque in a pool game.
So, how does everyone feel that we seem to have gone into split weekends between Romeo & Napier in net? A number of programs would alternate their goalies if they had two good enough but this is rather new territory for us.

Pretty intense game going into the 3rd. Just wish that Carson would remember he has teammates out there.
What a finish! I though we outplayed the Gophers in nearly every aspect of the game yet they were tenacious as to be expected in their barn.
How we survived the OT power play and Romeo getting away with felony armed robbery on Pitlick! That has to be a National play of the week!
Way to go Buckeyes, let's go for the sweep!
To dominate that game the way they did and only come out of it with a tie is awful. They had so many chances in the first 2 periods and only to have 1 goal to show for it bit them in the butt later. The penalty that led to the tieing goal was dumb and completely avoidable. They had the puck twice on their stick and failed to clear right before the penalty and then take an unforced penalty. 2 points is better than none on to tomorrow and a chance to get 5 points this weekend. BTW i think this team is much better than Minnesota but the Gophers have some serious players man they can really skate.

At this point, the Gophers are a team in transition, and don't have their usual cohesive offense. But it was actually pretty fascinating watching the Gophers play for the upset. And MN almost pulled it off. They were stingy 5x5, and very effective on the 5x4 PK. What were we, -1 for 4 on the PP during regulation time?
Should the Buckeyes have closed things out after the Hein goal? Yes, of course. But don't be sad; cuz 2 out of 3 ain't bad. Meatloaf tastes better on the road.
We expended a lot of energy last night playing up tempo the way we did on the big ice. What we have left in the tank tonight should be a good indicator of this team's stamina and level of physical conditioning.
Talk about poor officiating. Not only was that guy on top of Tommy he slashed him as well! No excuse when it's all on the video you reviewed!
