    Yeah they still are despite the poor 1st period and results tonight. Many other "top" teams have lost as well this weekend, welcome to College Hockey parity.

    They have the potential to be, but you're right, they aren't playing like it right now. Not to take anything away from Mankato, who played a solid 60 minute game tonight.

    Agreed on all accounts.

    The Gophers did not answer the bell tonight, came out lethargic in the 1st and it cost them a W (Grade: D). The Gophers passing, D and transition game was non-existent in the 1st (3 icing calls in the first few minutes) essentially shooting themselves in the foot and quickly fell behind 2-0 in the first 10 min. Overall, this was the worst period for the Gophers this season, who were outshot 19-7 in the first.

    Adam Wilcox made several good saves in the 1st and throughout game under heavy pressure at times, (Grade: A-). Erik Haula was a warrior tonight, with a goal and a assist (3 pts. this weekend)...and was robbed at the end of second period on a huge save by Phil Cook. Overall, a poor showing for the Gophers, who did not play hard for a full 60 minutes tonight and were outshot for the first time this season, 35-28.

    Going into the game the Gophers had scored in 18 out of 20 periods so far this season, but were denied in the third as Wilcox was beat on a nice shot near the top of the circle and the Mavs took the lead 4-3 and then added an ENG. Credit the Minnesota State University Mavericks who came out fired up, played a physical, full 60 minutes and notched a much needed first win in the WCHA. Phil Cook was the star for the Mavs tonight, who played solid for 3 periods, stopping some very good 3rd period scoring chances by the Gophers. Final: Mavs 5, Gophers 3.

    So is MSU going to drop their next 5 games, just like Michigan Tech has done after beating us, so this loss will look even worse. Seriously weak.
    Both teams played very strong against us.

    with all due respect, thats the same coaching staff that, while 6 of these defensemen have played bad enough to warrant sitting, 8 of them have continuously been penciled into the lineup. frankly, i dont care what this coaching staff thinks of the players performances, including michaelson on friday.

    the players in the lineup arent getting it done right now, and the coaches wont sit some of them. put it on the coaches

    You can't spot any WCHA team two goals in the first and expect it to end well often. I am still confident that they'll get it figured out.

    Can't play a 1st period on the road like that, they did play much better in the 2nd and 3rd but had too many turnovers.

    Don and Mike really needs to figure things out defensively. And the slow, lifeless starts are getting really old.

    Yeah, Condon needs to stay on that 2nd line.
