I want to believe.

By all means, believe!

Invest yourself emotionally.

You gotta go all in.

I think that our very young team may have hit the wall and Goody did a terrible job tonight, especially in rebound control. Not what we needed from our senior goalie who had been having an outstanding season.

gophers (er rats) are young too. If frosh hit walls they do it on both teams. UW was outclassed all game long. I'm hoping Eaves, Shuey and Butters chew em out properly after this.

there's no reason to a. allow those bad angle shots to not get blocked (3 of them) and b. for your goaltender to allow them to go in, at least any more than 1 of them

**** poor effort tonight. Andringa was spot on

um.......which one of these teams was supposed to have one of the 5 best PP's in the country?

Yet another strong performance by the maroon and gold. Nice to see them get rewarded for it for the second game in a row.

One of the big keys for MN was having 2 of their "big guns":rolleyes: score early in Hoeffel and Cepis. Matson also showed some prowess around the net with both of his goals.
But what impressed me the most was the Gopher's play in between the circles in their own end. They won nearly every battle there.

Also, nothing quite as disgraceful as having your bench boss totally lose control and launch into a tantrum that would put my 4 year-old niece to shame. Fing embarrassing for coach Eaves.

Hopefully MN can come out with the same intensity that they have shown the past 6 weeks and get at least another point.

The Gophers found their mojo tonight and played with the lead in a very physical rivalry game with lots of extracurricular activities. The turning point was Taylor Matson's first goal for the two goal lead and then capped off with his second goal unassisted in the period which realistically let the air out of Becky's tires for a 4-1 lead. I was also impressed by Aaron Ness who has really improved as an offensive D and picked up a couple assists. Becky's superstar PP laid a big egg tonight and went 2-10/11?, while the Gopher's picked up 3 PP goals. Gudmanson has now let in 13 goals in his past 3 games and looked very flat tonight. Patterson was his usual stellar self and made some phenom saves. Overall impressive energy and smart hockey by the Gophers. Now can the Gophers do it again tomorrow night?

you call that a tantrum? He was ripping the refs for a bad non-call. I don't blame Eaves one bit for that. the refs were inconsistent as hell.

however, having said that, I wouldn't doubt their was a letting off of steam there too as he had to be beyond ****ed at how his team was playing. I mean twice Zengerle has wide open looks and doesn't even LOOK AT THE NET, doesn't even look up, he's passing where he should shoot 80% of the time now.

good game rats. you had so many players play well I'll just say the whole effen rat squad played well vs. giving props to 1 or 2 players

Wisconsin has had a cupcake schedule and hasn't really beaten any good quality teams. Would you like to post some more nature pics?:D

You know as well as I do that you've been all over google looking for a deer with man photo. I've got a whole bunch, but I ain't sharing. :D

You have to admit the one with the gopher in the egret's throat was pretty hilarious. Horrible day for that gopher. Nature is brutal, much like our team tonight.

Also - I never said we had beaten anyone good. In fact, I said that we hadn't really beaten anyone good.

Good win. I'm already over it.

That's the key right there. If they continue to play skilled and gritty hockey and don't take anything from wisky goons, I fear for bucky tomorrow night and expect lots of fights since that may be all they can do. However, this team is starting to get the bandwagon rolling again, so that is usually when there is a let down. I'm anxious to see what happens next. Go Gophers!

Hate to see anyone gloat. Bucky won't lay down and die tomorrow night so while tonight's result was awesome, it's already time to prepare for the next game.

Aside from taking too many penalties that may have been the Gophers most complete game of the season despite playing without Barriball and Hansen.

And Harley pretty sure UW beat the Gophers earlier this year.

Ok, now that the chaos in the WCHA tonight is waning (although still just a tad), here's some thoughts on tonight's game:

1. WI looked SLOW. They were getting beat to the puck a lot (although MN has to stop waiting for the pass, since that led to a couple breakaways).

2. Thank Parise for goalposts. I remember at least 3 obvious ones (btw, great mics near the nets!).

3. Wehrs......*shakes head*

4. Dear WI players, maybe if you stopped trying to take a poke at our goalie after the whistle, or when the puck is obviously frozen in his possession, we
wouldn't have to go after you. I'm glad St Pat shoved back later in the game.

5. I thought both team's first goals were fluky. MN's for the obvious reasons, and WI's was a result of a MN guy falling back into St Pat, and that led to the wide open net (although credit to WI for taking advantage and scoring the easy goal into a wide open net).

I like the gritty play between these two teams, but stop with the cheap sh*.

yeah, well, I'm also accustomed to Wisconsin having more NCAA titles than "the state of hockey"
