For SCSU...



Don't we first need to play in important games before we can start asking for a do-over? :confused:

There are actually quite a few that have posted in here... get your facts straight before the insults start flying.

Learn to take a joke. Or some Midol.

If I whined everyone took a gratuitous jab at the Gophers I'd never stop.

Aside from any national championship games, mine would be that game where Joe Finley pulled Blake Wheeler out of the handshake line after the game and fought him. I would've liked the Gophers to pummel Finley during the game so that he would not have been so keen to drop the gloves after it. :D

It'd been awfully tough to do when the team was hiding behind Lucia.

As for Dora, if he was taking steriods, they sure didn't work! The guy was maybe 165 lbs soaking wet, and not very strong on his skates, either. The guy was a gritty player and got his share of points on pure effort, rather than talent. Looked like a grocery bagger, not a hockey player.

I still don't know what he did to get himself suspended for the NCAA title game, but my hunch is the team rule he broke likely had more to do with curfews than drugs.

It's hard to imagine meeting Dora and thinking he took steroids. I know why he was suspended, but there's no way in my mind that he was on 'roids.

The end of the 2002 season, DU, #1 seed, was 32-7-1 and "got" to play at Yost against Michigan in the NCAA regional. Gwozdecky was up for the Penrose. Frozen Four here we come. OOOPs the away team, Michigan won the game.
Do over--not have to play Michigan at yost, play in a different region. Or Win the game.

This is the one that comes to my mind. Dubie had a ridiculous season that year.

BU had to play in NH against UNH, in front of a very good UNH crowd this year despite being the #1 seed in the whole tournament. granted it wasn't UNH's home stadium but that was a UNH crowd. Great teams win those games, and if they don't they probably wouldn't win in the FF either.

it would only make sense for Northeastern fans, because they haven't played in that many big games and the 20-plus years without a Beanpot is starting to take on a pre-2004 Red Sox feel. that being said... for NU fans why not pick the HE semifinal this year (too many men on the ice) or loss to Cornell in the NCAAs.

HE semifinal... still the final left to go.
Loss to Cornell... considering what Bemidji did to ND and Cornell, I wouldn't be all that confident of NU getting past them.

At least my Beanpot pick was one where a win would have meant hardware.

I would love to have a do-over of just one particular faceoff in the 1985 national championship game between RPI and Providence.

That was one stacked Sioux team.

That was a very, very difficult loss. However, I might pick a few others that I would like a do-over on.

1. 2001 National Title Game - We were going for back-to-back titles, and had all the momentum after scoring twice in the final few minutes to tie the game in the 3rd. A defensive breakdown by Schneekloth and the game is over.

2. 2005 National Title Game - With the game tied at 1, we appear to score the go ahead goal. The puck was in Mannino's glove, and it looked like his entire glove was in the net. The officials reviewed it and were not able to determine if the entire puck was in the net. While DU was a powerhouse of a team, I feel as though had North Dakota taken a lead in that game, we would have dictated the rest of the game. Add on to that a goal off of one of our defensemen's skates, and DU took home the title.

3. 2008 Frozen Four Semifinal - 6-1.

4. 1998 and 1999 Regional Finals - Perhaps the two best teams that North Dakota had in a five year stretch where they won two titles and lost in a final. We drew Michigan @ Michigan, and then laid a stinker against BC @ Madison. Both were very disappointing, with the edge going to the Michigan game where we had a lead heading into the third.

And don't forget one goal off of Paul Stastny's butt.

You have to admit, though, the 3rd goal was a beauty!!

Didn't that one go off of Smaby too?

I think I speak for all SLU fans when I say 1988 NC game vs LSSU in Lake Placid.

Another thread thought: Game you would most like to Re-live and be at again, sort of an epitome of games thread.

October 18, 2003, NMU at MTU. (http://www.uscho.com/box/?date=20031018&vis=nmu&home=mtu&gender=m) Let the box score speak for itself.

Either that, or this game (http://www.uscho.com/box/?date=20071026&vis=und&home=mtu&gender=m) against #1 UND. That game was the loudest I have ever heard the MacInnes get.

2004 ncaa semifinal game--DU vs tUMD. Hobey Winner Junior Lessard scores 2 goals and stakes the Bulldogs to a 3-1 lead. And then, and then Berkhoel stones Lessard and DU rallies and wins the game 5-3.

The championship game that same year cannot be ignored. Just watching on tv that last 90 interminably long seconds with Maine skating with a 6 on 3 advantage; pucks clanging off the post, DU's defensemen throwng their bodies at the pucks, and Adam Berkhoel stopping shot after shot.
Still takes my breath away.

I was at both the tUMD & BU comeback games this spring during the NCAA tournament. Wow, what a privilege as a hockey fan! :eek:

I don't anticipate ever seeing such thrilling finishes again, let alone two within a few weeks of each other. This, of course, jinxes the Gophers to lose a in a similar heartbreaker next spring. :)

As much as the semifinal loss in 2004 to Denver sucked, no doubt this is the ultimate one "do-over" for tUMD hockey.

1984 National Title Game
Bowling Green's opponent for the title game was the University of Minnesota-Duluth, the top-ranked team in the country. The Falcons were ranked fourth, despite a better record by eight points over the Bulldogs. BG jumped out to an early 1-0 lead, but by the end of two periods, trailed by the score of 3-1. Less than a minute into the final period, UMD had scored again, and kept the three-goal lead through the first 12 minutes of the period, until Bowling Green pulled within 4-2.

The Falcons came alive shortly after that goal, scoring again at the 6:18 mark to pull within one, then used a little help from the "hockey gods" to pull even.

With just about two minutes left to play, Bowling Green defenseman Wayne Wilson dumped the puck around the boards, some believe the play was offsides, others more vehemently argue that icing should have been called. As UMD goalie Rick Kosti skated behind his net to play the puck, it hit a screw or a crack, or something in the boards and popped out in front of the net. Senior center John Samanski tapped it in for his 25th goal of the year, tying the score at four with 1:47 to play.

Tied after regulation, the teams played a 10 minute overtime period, then another, and another. The Bulldogs dominated play, but Kruzich came up big time and time again to keep the Falcons' title hopes alive. Finally, with just under three minutes left in the fourth overtime, after 97 minutes and 11 seconds of hockey, senior Dan Kane fed a perfect pass to sophomore Gino Cavallini, who's backhand shot beat Kosti and brought the national championship to Bowling Green.


Absolutely devastating.


No doubt the 1984 title game is THE do over for me. :mad:

To add insult to injury the 1985 national semi-final versus RPI having a goal waived off for being played with a high stick when it was clearly batted in below the cross bar. End up losing in OT.... I even remember the referees name that waived it off....Cupka - might be spelling his name wrong though.

Having a healthy Matt Christiansen's for all of the '86 season would have been another outstanding chance for tUMD to snag a title. They were loaded again that season and Matty's stroke late in the year devastated the team.
