    Just to play along, I never implied anything of the sort. I only said that to claim the level of your competition doesn't affect how you perform is a naive opinion....
    Or a coping mechanism.
    Lol he is a lawyer.

    We'll have to agree to disagree. IMO, it was our worst performance of the season. We certainly didn't play "well." If anything, our best hockey was in the middle of the third period. I'm hard on my team because I know their capabilities...tonight was an abomination.
    The third was making me nervous, to be honest.

That does happen, most often when facing a rival.

    You're confusing the result (a close game in that time frame) with how North Dakota played. They were awful. It was our worst performance of the season. Can't I have my opinion?

    And we're saying that for the first two periods at least, you held your own, on the road, against a #1 team. You sound like a MN pro sports fan right now, always whining about something.
    You don't need "pro" in there.

    When plays that used to be routine all of a sudden yield a less positive result, you have to be better in how you execute them than you were previously. All the little things make much more of a difference, and that affects how you play the game. Your focus is diverged. There is a lot more that you have to be aware of. And you have to make an attempt to be faster, cleaner and more aware in even those routine plays, which can lead to a higher failure rate.
    As the level of your competition rises, so does the degree to which you have to deal with all of what I have just said.

    If you don't realize that, nothing I say will make a difference.
    Brilliant. Thank you Stauber.

    And no, I never played Division 1, college hockey. If you did, please enlighten me on how failing to complete a pass in your own zone when the other team is not in the zone shows that the pass failed because of something Minnesota did. Thanks.

    Considering that I have said basically the exact opposite already (i.e. Minnesota was the better team, deserved to win, played well enough to win, although not great, Wilcox was rock solid, etc. etc. etc.)...I don't think so.

    Why can't Gopher fans just accept the fact that North Dakota played really bad tonight, and probably their worst game of the year tonight? I would think they would rejoice. Your team won for crying out loud...enjoy the victory.

    Yeah. I usually stay away from the SS Forums and Game Chats during the games. They make me look like a glass half full kind of guy after a game like tonight.
