    Hindsight is 20/20. Had the Gophers given up a late goal to tie the score, everyone would be saying exactly what I said.

    Bottom line: Yes, I'm happy the Gophers won. But the Gophers have more than enough firepower to put up more than one goal against a team like that even with a hot goalie(I do credit Canisius for coming in with a gameplan that kept them in it right to the end, though).

    Yesterday's game didn't worry me a lot. Sometimes you run into a hot goalie. I thought we controlled the puck for the vast majority of the game, and played well defensively. Canisius did a great job of clogging up the neutral zone, controlling the front of the net, and blocking shots. Gophers stayed patient and didn't commit any costly turnovers.

    Remember BC vs Air Force in the first round of the NCAA Tournament last year? Same type of game.

    The offense will come. I'm pretty confident about that. I think Wilcox is our guy in net. I'm also pretty confident about that. What I'm interested in is whether or not we can gel defensively and find some consistency on the back-end. We started off shaky defensively last year too, then shored things up. Gotta find a rhythm this season.

    I am a Gopher fan! I understand that the game was an exhibition and that coach probably was trying players in different roles and such. The NTDP uses both U18 & U17 for the USHL games. I just said it is "Funny", geee whiz

    Canisius wasn't a bad team by any means when the Wolves played them up in Anchorage. They seem defensively sound, but their offense sputtered at the Kendall Classic (just three goals in two games). Play good defense and the Gophers should be fine.

    The Gopher recruit (Letierri) scored one of the two goals and was assisted by a possible future Gopher (Hurley)
    You're right San, it was Connor Clifton from New Jersey committed to Quinnipiac throwing a temper tantrum after Bjugs scored.

    Golden Gophers vs. Golden Griffins and whoever loses gets a Golden _ _ _ _ _ _ .

    Parenteau got a bruise, that's about it. I suppose Budish got his bell rung, but seemed fine by the end of the game.

    Either way, it was a pretty stupid comment, as the USA team that plays in the USHL is primarily made up of the U-17 players.

    I didn't watch or listen to the game, but I'm not surprised that the U-18 squad played well against Minnesota. They are very talented. Plus, my guess is that Minnesota did not play up to their ability either. In an exhibition game, all I ever care about is that everyone comes away healthy, which it sounds like happened.
