Final regular season game for both teams tonight. The Gophers are 8-0-2 over the last 10 seasons on "Senior Night". The trend for ASU this season has been no good on Fridays (8/11 losses), bounce back on Saturdays. I expect a much closer game with or without Walker. I like the Gopher's chances of closing out the season with their first sweep on home ice.“Completely unacceptable,” Powers said. “We gave ourselves no chance to come back and win that game. That’s not us. What people saw tonight – that’s not us.
Obviously we missed Walker a lot, having some power plays early, he leads the country in power play goals,” said Sun Devils coach Greg Powers, who noted that his team was playing on the larger Olympic-size ice sheet for the first time this season. “We had a freshman on that side that’s not used to being in that spot and I think our guys really struggled with all the extra space.”
