Ok.

:D


I didn't really hear any cheering when Kangas got pulled last Friday.

Aside from that, while Kangas did get hung out to dry in the 1st period, he looked downright foolish on both the 4th and 5th goals. Those two came about 3 minutes apart, and totally put the game out of reach. While Kangas is a good goaltender who has been victimized by his team early this year, the 2nd period last Friday he victimized his team. That 3 minute stretch is one that your goaltender simply cannot allow if you want your team to be successful.

This.

Solid 4-1 win for the Gophers tonight. Other than some puck control lapses in the 2nd, the Gophers had a strong effort and created scoring chances around the net. Overall the D is playing better. Mark Alt is stepping up on D. CC actually outshot the Gophers 28-24, but Patterson made some good saves and has only allowed 2 GA in 7 and a half periods. He's my choice for tomorrow night.

Gopher D was ok. CC was just horrible on special teams. I think Don Juan plays Kangas tomorrow and CC gets the split.

OK works for D when we have a good offense/PP.

Gophers outplayed CC Friday night. And CCtig got to meet Mrs. Fairchild! All things considered it was a good night!!

-I thought the Budish line looked terrible. They seemed to repeatedly get in each other's way and spent way too much time trying to cycle along the rail rather than driving to the net

-The PP has returned to oblivion

-It appears there's an "angel gets its wings" thing going on with Ness and Fairchild, as in every time someone b|tches about them LaPanta is forced to say something positive

-Love the play of Patterson and for the most part the team defense, but CC had too many backdoor chances early that better teams would have utilized to put them into an early hole

-Overall glad to see them get: a win, in conference, on the road, on Friday night, with Patterson in net. However, this game should produce plenty of film room teachable moments

Good win last night it's always nice to get 2pts on Friday night. Does tDon start Patterson again or switch to Kangas tonight?

I have said and still believe that he should start Patterson again tonight nothing against Kangas at all I still think he's a good goalie. I also realize the D have played much better in front of Patterson but he has also looked very sharp back there and has won a couple of games in a row. Either way let's get out the brooms tonight.

CC had plenty of chances while the game was still 2-1, but the PP was awful and the team couldn't finish the good chances that they WERE able to generate. They skated well, and I thought the passing was very crisp at times early in the game, but Minnesota made them pay for their mistakes. I thought Howe played well. 2 of the 3 goals he gave up were not really his fault, IMHO, and he made some big stops to keep that game at 2-1 for as long as it was. Patterson played well and stopped a few good chances, but I thought the Gophers' D got stronger and stronger as the game went on, which certainly helped him. Overall a very good game for Minnesota. As for CC, well, there are going to be a lot of growing pains this year, but I believe the talent is there and that they will improve. Hopefully that starts tonight by salvaging a split.

Is Rylan Schwartz back for CC tonight? Could change the game dynamic quite a bit.

The 2nd line of Cepis Condon and Budish was outstanding and had 11pts.

Sweep on the road and score 9 goals...... time to crack open the good stuff. :)

Not a fun night to be a Tiger's fan... I think CC played poorly but still think we have to give some credit to the Gophers.

I’m not sure it’s time to fire Owens. He did recruit the Schwartz bros and I’m not sure where we would be without them.

Before the game tonight...

Apparently there was a freak accident in the parking lot before the game at the World Arena. On I-25, which is right next to the arena, a car lost it's tire and a wheel. The tire/wheel rolled into the parking lot and crushed a car. No one was hurt in the accident, but it's just crazy.

CC was absolutely god-awful defensively tonight...which kind of goes without saying when 9 goals are given up, I suppose. I can't believe how often defenders (both d-men AND forwards) were out of position, scrambling, getting beat, etc. Just a **** poor defensive effort and the goaltenders for CC were constantly hung out to dry.:mad:

While Minnesota certainly deserves credit for an impressive sweep this weekend, CC also deserves a ton of blame for making it very easy for Minnesota. This could be a looooooong season for the Tigers. This is NOT a good team right now at all.

That line was sick. Let's pray they play like that the rest of the year so Lucia HAS TO keep them together.

Wow, 9 goals and all even strength or better (the 1 shorty). Only got 1 PP all game. Hope they can improve their penalty killing though.

Well I'll admit I was wrong. I didn't think Patterson would get both nights. Lucia must have missed my post. Other than a few shaky moments in the first half of last night's game, he looked good.

And what where the Gopher's thinking? When you have two years of 'puck luck' saved up, why use so much of it up in one night?

Scooby may have even felt a strange feeling after this weekend, one he hasn't felt for years, a tinge of optimism.
