    If you can't get FSN they also have a directors cut on their web site that shows the Gopher games as well (from the directors view)

    Driftryer...help me out here. The directors cut page is just a promo page. Where do you actually get the game? Searched the site and cannot find it.
    Go Gophers!

      Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

          Stealing from myself:

          It wasn't wicked pretty, but they did some things I hoped for:

          -Win by at least 4
          -Finish the game. While the third wasn't their best period they outscored AFA by 2
          -Get some dirty goals
          -Never let the game be in doubt

          It was efficient if not spectacular but they didn't need to be. Probably played it somewhat close to the vest in lieu of tomorrow night's matchup against the beast from the East.

              watched the 3rd period of Minn/AF and the announcers spent half the period at least juicing themselves about Sunday night's "earth moving event" as it was again called. Is this the Frozen Four or something? I mean i'm looking forward to it for sure but come on!

                I wouldn't call it an "earth moving event", but tonight's game has an interesting story line as a rematch of last years FF semi and a classic battle between two top ranked teams with excellent records over the last 10 games: BC: 8-1-1, MN: 6-1-3. The goalie duel is nearly dead even on SV%: Milner: .924, Wilcox: .923.

                BC has played a few top 10 ranked teams (e.g. Dartmouth, Notre Dame, and Boston University), whereas the Gophers have not. So the game is especially significant for the Gophers to have the #1 ranked team in their building as a litmus test of their current level of performance.

                There's no doubt BC is an excellent team, but they're minus Gaudreau, and Alber, a senior leader on the backline out for the season, so BC is looking at a very young D corp with 4 freshman D in the lineup. So this will also be a big test for BC as well to see who will step up. The Gophers lost one D to WJC, but are very deep in that category anyway. If the Gophers can jump out to an early lead, play solid, physical D and a good transition game, I like our chances.

                Go Gophers!

                  Not sure if the Alber injury will force Macleod to play as he was a late scratch last night with a bad shoulder. Either way, BC is going to be REAL young on Defense and without their one superstar Gaudreau. Throw in the fact that it's at MN combined the revenge factor and I think it will be real tough for BC to win this game.

                    With Gaudreau I would say BC would be the favorite, but without (and the added misfortune of being down Alber) this game is a tossup at best. Should be an INCREDIBLE game; I am beyond excited for this one.

                      You do realize that TV stations benefit by the more viewers they have, so it is in their best interest to hype games they show, don't you?

                        You can still do that without extreme hyperbole.

                        I think minny wins 4-3

                          Hyperbole apparently is a new concept in advertising and marketing. I guess they're innovators.

                            Never said it was a new concept. No need to get all defensive here.

                              Pointing out a flaw is not being defensive.

                              Here's to a hopefully great game.

                                I hope for a good game, too.

                                However, based on WCHA out of conference performance this season, I think it's a "down" year in the WCHA and even though BC is a little shorthanded, I find myself really wondering about this one.
