    Racine makes some outstanding saves, but they come at a price (as you mentioned-5 hole). 'vort had his confidence blasted at Penn State.

      Marty had is bad nights, Steve Shields did, too. Montoya was horrible some nights.

      Skill wise, Nagelvoort is clearly better than Racine. Attitude wise, he is, too. His only question is focus. And as far as I can tell, his focus against Penn State was pretty much the same as the rest of the team- he may have let in 4 goals, but the rest of the team did nothing at all.

      But I'm not the coach.

        It was so nice to see another team actually skate with the Gophers. Very refreshing. Our upcoming bye week will be more exciting than games against Becky or Sparty.

          Nagelvort let in 3 goals in the first period against PSU before getting pulled. One of those he should have had. Maybe it's not fair to compare Racine's performance against a team like Minnesota with Nagelvort's performance against what should be lesser opponents. I don't care, I was surprised to see Racine start. I think Nagelvort has done well and has been getting better. But, like alfa, I'm not the coach.

          As much as I disliked the result of those games, they were fun to watch.

            I disagree, he should have had all three. His head wasn't there, but either was the rest of the teams...

                  Whenever Guptill is benched, it seems the energy is higher. Tonight the team played an outstanding game.

                  However, he is a star against ohio. Play him next week if he earns his way back into the lineup?

                  I'm getting so sick of this crap with him. How many games now has he missed due to his poor work ethic/inconsistency?

                    Well, if he follows the path as some of the would be seniors did in the past, he'll bolt for Dallas in the NHL and end up an AHL bum.

                        Nice article on Copp in CHN...

                        In other news I'm starting to see why people hate Minnesota, I'm red again. It was even a Michigan-Minny thread and they still neg. repped me.

                          I still think Nagelvoort is a better goalie, but based on how the team plays, I think it's time to run Racine a few more times.

                          We've seen this in past seasons where the team just plays better in front of one goalie over the other, no matter the skill of the net minder. And while Racine's numbers are slightly worse, his winning record is better enough to go on the stats.

                            I think I'm with you on this. Maybe it was also watching on tv/listening to the Fox Sports guy, Racine made some great saves. From my spot in Yost it's sometimes difficult to see the quality of saves/opposing team chances during 2/3 of the game.

                            It's nice to have two decent goalies that can win games. I just wish we had one that could steal games.

                              Racine is an unorthodox goaltender that often overplays his side to side angles. Minnesota took advantage of that- it reminded me of the goaltender in Slapshot.

                              Nagelvoort has lost some of his confidence and will need to get it back soon. He is the guy Berenson wants to lean on but just has not kept the pucks he should out of the net.

                                someone has to start a weekend thread. wT I'm sure thinks I should not. But, geez- it's MSU for crying out loud. They are the #1 hockey rival for us.

                                It would be nice if we saw the shooters from the Sunday games this weekend, but who knows.

                                streaker- your view on Nagelvoort relative to what you think Red wants makes my wife happy- she's a HUGE fan of Zach. I'd like to see the team play better in front of him, though. Why they change so much- that would be good to figure out.
