Well, just for the record those weren't Gopher D though attempting the blocks. It was Reilly, Vinnie and Bristedt. Bristedt coming off the bench didn't actually collide with anyone, he went down on his own but timed his shin guard block a little too early. Actually Vinnie and Reilly showed a lot of guts with Reilly down on one knee for a full torso block and Vinnie standing straight up with a full body block.

The D were Zuhlsdorf and Collins and they actually did their job. The Penn St. player came off the wall, Collins backchecked, while Zuhlsdorf took his position in front of the net, then came the pass to Myllari. In terms of distance to Myllari, Reilly was a actually a only stick length away when the shot was released and almost blocked it with his stick. It looked like Reilly and Vinnie may have even screened Schierhorn a bit.

Pitlick coming out party. Rem is a heatseeking missile on the breakaway...nearly unique weapon we haven't had here in some time. Bet he's not regretting his decision to leave Muskegon.

Note to OSU fans, you won't find a single gopher fan on here* trying to defend that hit. It was dirty and Gates should hit the showers early** for it.

*-if there are, I'm confident they will be called out by Minnesota fans.
**-Easy Sandusky, these kids can actually defend themselves.

But he pulled up just as much as the OSU guy did?????? And the guy turned before Gates got there....

But seriously, I was surprised they overturned the Kloos goal. It looked like it was likely a little high, but it was very close and I didn't think the video evidence was clear enough to overturn the call on the ice.

And what do people think of the goalie interference call?

I like that he got one shortly after announcers were talking up the two freshman on PSU. Would love it if he sticks around a few years.

I think in both cases the call on the ice should have stood. Instead the officials decided to play God and call Kloos' goal a no goal. Good thing it didn't matter.

The Kloos goal was clearly a high stick. I had no issues with them overturning it.

I didn't think Kloos' goal was CLEARLY a high stick at all. Very well may have been, but it didn't look like they had enough video evidence to overturn it. Didn't bother me though, because the disallowed goal for PSU should have been good.

Agree on both counts.

What I find amazing about Rem is 3-4 years ago he was list at 5'3" 125 lbs. when he committed to the Gophers. Then suddenly the "devour your Wheaties" phase and then the growth spurt. Now he's listed at 5'10", 205. If his talent trajectory keeps escalating to a top six pro upside, I suspect the Predators may call and he may forgo his senior year.

Although I agree, with his high octane speed I hope he does a "Kyle Rau" and stays for full four years.

Wasn't the goalie interference a call made immediately, so would have had to have been clear evidence to overturn? While the OSU player was clearly pushed into the crease, the movement of his stick to follow through and take out Schierhorn's feet was accelerated beyond the speed of his body being pushed in. It was tough to tell the intent, but that motion is what took Scheirhorn down, not his body being pushed into Scherihorn. In both cases, they seemed they could go either way to me, and in that case I favor sticking with the call on the ice.

By a 'few years", I meant more than 2. I could imagine him being good enough to consider leaving after next year if he keeps progressing, but his comments made when he thought he was staying in Juniors another year make me hopeful he isn't in as big of a hurry as some players are. Would be nice to see him and Middlestedt together in 2 years.

Not if you're a Penn State fan! ;)

I didn't mind the waived goal for the high stick. The camera angle from behind the net when slowed down to me made it pretty evident his stick was at least shoulder length high of a PSU player that is clearly higher than the crossbar.

My take as well.

At least the two waived goals cancelled each other out. Both were close.

FWIW Don Lucia was asked about it and he thought it was a good goal, the puck hit the bottom of the blade of the stick which was below the crossbar. So I guess that settles it then.;)

Clearly how? There was no evidence. The view on the ice showed the stick at the same level as the crossbar. You could see the boards behind the goal to figure out the measurement. It was a crap call. They made it up.

The view from the ice looked way high to me.

What a win! This team just never quits. Without looking that has to be at least their 5th come from behind win after being down by 2 or more.
