    My vote would be Ohio St.. Not to sound cliche, but I think that the Gophers match up better with them.

    At the same time it would be more exciting to have that game at home and if you can't beat a team that is outside of the tournament as far as at large when it counts most you don't deserve to make it.

    Let's beat ND first.

    Whoa whoa hold on a second. What makes you think that another home playoff game would be any better than the train wreck for attendance this past weekend?

    No HS Hockey tournament that weekend. Improved weather (we all hope). False hope for the weather and team. Fewer conflicts from other U sporting events.

    This weekend had the HS hockey tourney, the Gophers women hockey, wrestling meet, I think a couple other things, along with the weather forecast (which turned out to not be an issue).

    Did I say that? It would be ugly. Less ugly but ugly.

    But I would like to watch one more game at home and that would be a big one.

    The big rosemaling festival in Blaine was the real killer.

    While true. The entire team will be gone and replaced by a squad of 18 yos next year.

    TL;DR: Motzko is pretty much saying that the look and feel of Gopher hockey is about to change quite drastically to compete with the other MN schools

    Do or die tonight. Time to de-activate the C3P0s!

    Game Day!

    With Notre Dame sitting at #17 in the PWR, a loss could be the end of the road this season for ND and definitely the Gophers tonight. The Gophers swept ND in their last meeting two months ago at the Compton Family Ice Arena. Can the Gophers notch a third victory in a row on ND home ice?

    ND netminder Cale Morris was impressive last weekend, recording back-to-back shutouts on home ice against MSU and the high scoring KHL line.

    The GPS line for the Gophers has been resonating their own firepower lately racking up 10 pts. last weekend in the sweep against Mich. Robson was on his game with a 1.5 GAA in the series. Offensively the Gophers are on a 5 game winning streak that has avg. 3.4 G/GP and arguably playing their BEST hockey of the season.

    Notre Dame has struggled scoring all season and managed only a goal in each loss to the Gophers in South Bend in January. But this is PLAYOFF HOCKEY. I expect the ND defense and goaltending to be their firewall once again, which really came to life last weekend. The Gophers will need more puck possession time in the O-zone than they had against Mich. to solve the ND D and Morris. Perimeter play is not going to cut it.

    I've got ND with a slight edge on home ice tonight. But potent special teams action could be the wild card tonight with the ND PP @ 22.6% (13th) and the Gophers 24.1% (9th). Go Gophers!

    Safe travels to anyone making the hellrun to IN today (or last night). I know of a couple people who left this morning for the game.

    Having the Irish lose on St Paddy's Day weekend would be so sweet.....

    Re: Minnesota Golden Gopher Season 2018-2019: Fire Motzko

    Several Gophers (Lucia's guys ) have had exceptional seasons this year:

    Tyler Sheehy: 2nd highest career point total (41, 53/2016-17)
    Rem Pitlick: Highest career point total (45), tied for #1 in the NCAA in PPG (10)
    Brent Gates Jr.: Highest career point total (31)
    Brannon McManus: Highest career point total (26)
    Jack Sadek: Highest career point total (18)
    Sammy Walker: Highest point total among all freshman in the Big Ten (18)
    Tyler Nanne: Highest career point total (13)

    But if the Gophers lose and end their season tonight, Motzko's debut as a coach will be identical to Lucia's W% last season (.526) only with the exception of missing the NCAA tournament by a wider margin in the PWR compared to last season.

    Thatís funny because it felt like Sheehy was absent most of the season.

    Tyler Sheehy has at least one point in 25 out of 37 games (68%). 44% of those 25 games are multi-point games.

    During his best season (2016-17) as Big Ten Player of the Year he scored points in 26 of 38 games (68%). 50% were multi-point games.
