    Very much looking forward to seeing the Gophers in person for the first time this weekend.
    Extended Caribbean Vacation?? I would have carried your bags.

    I think we'll see a lot more line chemistry develop early with this squad compared to last season. The blueline looks much better this season as well. Niagara is no push over. They're more of a veteran team with most of their top scorers returning.

    Solid. I can't see Lucia doing something like this.
    Slap Shot - 444 might want to consider a restraining order.
    dggoddard - Minnesota is THE ELITE Program in all of college hockey.
    wasmania - you have to be the very best to get ice time with the great gophers!

    A slew of turnovers from this young Gopher team kept Niagara in the game especially in the second, Gotta fix that for tomorrow night. I liked the mental toughness though in coming from behind and winning it in OT on an exciting breakaway goal by Sammy.Walker. With maybe the exception on the second goal off his pad, LaFontaine was very good in net.

    Good, short summary SteveO. I would add though that overall Niagara had more Grade A scoring chances than the home team, but a combination of excellent goaltending by LaFontaine and some healthy doses of good luck prevented more of those Grade A chances from ending up in the net. Too often the Gophers were careless with the puck in their D zone (reminding me of last season) and made sloppy passes through the neutral zone. Until giving up that two on one I thought Niagara played a solid, conservative game and were very good using their sticks to break up what appeared to be some very promising Gopher scoring chances. I thought for the talent they have (no NHL draftees!) they executed a very solid defensive game plan against a more talented - but younger - Gopher squad.

    On the way home I listened to Motzko's post-game comments, and let's just say he was NOT a happy camper.

    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    Young team going to make a lot of mistakes and they’re going to lose a lot.

    The talent is there. Is the heart?

    Bob is building quite a team. If they stick together for a few more years, they could be formidable.

    We may see some line changes again tonight as he tries to find that right combo of skill and grit. I'm waiting for Brannon McManus to find his scoring groove. He was good last season. I really like Ben Meyers, he could evolve into a dynamic scoring threat. HIGHLIGHTS

    The reason for the talent in the west? Because MN didn't rely on Canada.

    Some random thoughts from last night:
    1. The Gophers may not play well at all times but they always are playing with passion
    2. There were no lines for the bathrooms
    3. The goalie was stellar
    4. Sammy Walker is fantastic
    5. I got out of the parking ramp quickly
    6. My son bought me a malt cup

    Good game overall.
