I just hope the Gophers don't show the same "lack of respect" for their opponent as I apparently have in this thread:rolleyes:.

Back on task here... another Jekyll & Hyde weekend for the Gophers? I think they'll protect the house on Friday and wet the bed with overconfidence on Saturday. Seawolves should be plenty rested and used to the time change by now, but Gophers have superior talent.

This weekend Hyde beats UAA with Jekyll's heavy cane both Fri. and Sat. Gophers sweep.

Any chance we can make a wager on this series with the Sea pups? If UAA wins the series they get their pick of any of our 2011 incoming recruits....if MN wins we get to send John Hill back to Alaska as your defensive coach!

Seriously - please take Hill back!

Um no ...

Come on, that's the smartest thing Rink Pig has said in 2 months... although he often has some great stuff in the comments of the StarTribune.com.

Well the Gophers should sweep UAA at home anything less would be failure IMO and that's not a "lack of respect" at all. I don't care if UAA is better than they usually are we should still sweep them at home, the teams that want to make some noise in the playoffs or NCAA's will find a way to win these kind of games at home.

5-1 is a good start. Nice to see the shot total. Now to Saturday, could we be consistent a whole weekend?

Nice to see the Gophers showing lots of energy, enthusiasm, determination, line chemistry, aggressiveness on the PP, putting pucks on net, battling in front, and 5 goals with even a few pipes too. One down and one to go for the first home sweep.

I saw Gophers beating UAA to the puck, blocked shots, a ton of SOG (49 IIRC!!!!!!), and unfortunately still losing the faceoff battle. However if we lose the faceoff stats and win 5-1, I'm as happy as a former UAA coach who somehow still has a job.

Too soon?

A conversation overheard on the Gopher bench during the UAA game:

Lucia: Hey, John this defensive unit has got to improve.
Hill: Yeah, well I've been trying to encourage them.
Lucia: They need more than encouragement, they need a fire under their ***.
Hill: What do you mean, Don?
Lucia: Move the legs....Hey, ref, bad call ref!!
Hill: Ok, I'll tell them Don...it's your team.
Lucia: It's what you get paid to do John.
Hill: Ah...I didn't receive my check this week.
Lucia: Hmmm....really?
Hill: Yeah, does this mean I'm fired or what?
Lucia: No.
Hill: Well, I haven't won any fan popularity contests lately.
Lucia: I'll look into it.
Hill: Thanks buddy...(reaches for a hug)
Lucia: Ahh....stay on your side of the bench John.
Hill: Oh...yeah right. Go!...come on you can do it!

I hope MEg didn't get any barbecue sauce on her Seapups jersey;). Sorry I missed last night :( as my kid had a peewee tourney game (5-3 win). Some friends used our tickets and took their special needs son so they had a good time and got some Culvers! We'll be there tonight, though late as the peewees have a 5:45 game today. Hope the Gophs can maintain some intensity and get a sweep.

One team came into last night understanding the gravity of this series and playing play-off hockey. One team didn't. Simple as that.

This video progresses from lame to corny in two minutes. Looks to me like flashes of Cyrillic lettering for some reason.

OMFG. That is the stupidest video I have ever seen. Ok, only second to the Fairbanks polar bear abortion.

Congrats to UAA tonight. We threw everything at you, and you somehow won. Kudos to your team on that.

I have to admit, I'm more than mad at splitting, but I can't fault the Gophs on their effort. They did everything they could.

Inconsistent week again....

Sloppy passing all night, can't hit a tape to save our lives.

UAA collapsed well and blocked shots all night.

Zero sense of urgency until about 4 mins left.

A HUGE congrats to the Seawolves! Job well done.

Minnesota I know many of you probably hate it but that's how UAA plays the game and tonight, finally able to play it, it worked. Kamal was certainly a big part but it's all about clogging passing lanes and blocking shots.

I'm hoping this starts to turn things around and UAA can make a run at home ice.
