    Excellent game last night, Stickers. You deserved that win. I was hoping for a 10-0 Gopher win ( mirror our football squads losses to yours ) but realistically I figured it would be a dogfight. Good luck tonight and beyond.

    I noticed some fans in the Cardinal & White rooting for the Buckeyes. For them, I'm hoping the principle of "be careful what you wish for" kicks in.

    Had a very similar situation once, except I was able to use the butt end of my stick as a pool cue. Mine counted.

    During chat on GPL (Gopher hockey site) the general consensus was the same as yours, the "timeout" really helped OSU regroup and finish strong.
    Appreciate knowing that, though I'm certainly not surprised. Again, you've got a knowledgeable fan base, with a high % who've actually played the sport.

Go Bucks!
    I'm grateful that one of our board regulars made it to St. Paul, and appreciate your eyewitness reports. Keep 'em coming; the more detail the better!

    It should also be noted that "investing" in this particular trip turned out to be a pretty shrewd call. Not quite the equivalent of buying a penny stock, but a handsome return nonetheless.

With less than 10 minutes to play, a Gopher player shoved the puck into the net with his glove. The ref was in perfect position and immediately waived off the goal. Replay showed that the call was clearly correct. Yet there was widespread booing by fans who obviously hadn't seen the play, but were just wishin' and hopin'. We can't know if the boobirds contributed to the decision to do a video review. But that review gave the Buckeyes a valuable free timeout. Prior to the interruption, OSU was almost on the ropes. Afterwards, the Buckeyes settled down nicely and closed out the win.

    Silly, bitter comment.

    I understand that you're disappointed by the loss and in no mood for a compliment. But in terms of "accuracy in booing," Gopher Hockey fans are at the top. This includes holding fire when there's no complaint, or when you simply don't know. That's something to be proud of. And it was only fair to point out that the crowd's misfire was unusual.

    I figured it was an early whistle.
    Exactly. You simply didn't know. Just wishin' and hopin'. Human nature, yes. But less common with the Gopher Hockey crowd. Unusual=Interesting.

    I hated that they went to review it. Free timeout for OSU when the Gophers were absolutely buzzing.
    And on the bottom line, we agree 100%. You're just PO'd because you lost.

Getting off to another good start is a must against Wisconsin and not allow them to play that slow down game they like to play. Wisconsin will most likely try and be physical early to wear down a tried Buckeye team. Its going to take dirty goals once again to win this game tomorrow. Frey will have to be great as he has been the last 2 days. I hope tomorrow is not the last Ohio State hockey game of the season and I get to travel nest week to a location TBA! Go Bucks!

    We were just talking about that tonight at the viewing party. How cool would that be?!?! Not only that, but move on to the NCAA and do some real damage there. Go Bucks!

    My thoughts exactly! And I don't think this team will ever again go as long between conference titles as we did in the CCHA!

    A win tomorrow would be very nice so we could continue our season with the conference's automatic NCAA bid.
    If we do win tomorrow I would hope that Szczechura will have healed by regionals to be able to play. His gritty performance is missed on the ice and as a senior I would like him to finally play in the NCAA's.
    But don't get me wrong, every member of the team who have suited up to play in the place of an injured teammate have given it their all admirably.
