    Gopher PP sucked, Gopher PK sucked, NBCSN sucked. That about covers it.

      Tough game. Defense gave up way too much. Lost count of the number of breakaways. Bad, forced and dropped passes. Credit to Notre Dame because they weren't giving up anything in the later part of the game.

      Hoping they come out tomorrow with a fire lit under them. Should answer the question about facing adversity.

      Also the announcers drove me nuts. Couldn't pronounce anything. Constantly mispronounced Lucia and struggled to pronounce Vanek's last name even.

        Notre Dame played really well defensively, we did not. Their power play moved the puck well, ours did not. Simple as that. Gophers didn't play poorly offensively, Notre Dame's defense was just practically flawless tonight.

        Gophers needed to get pucks in deep, but we had far too many turnovers at the offensive blue line. We're a really young team, and we knew there would be adversity. Well, here it is. Time to learn from it.

          mnstate0fhockey is right about the turnovers. I was at the game and it looked early like the Gophers should have been up by at least a couple of goals instead of 0-0? Second period was when I thought the Gophers got a little lazy. Notre Dame has a veteran skilled #1 power play unit. The officials gave the Gophers a couple of borderline penalties and the Irish made them pay. I still think the Gophers are a deeper team, but they need to play hard for 60 minutes against veteran teams like Notre Dame.

              I would add: Irish were very good. Quite impressed with how well ND disrupted the Gophers' game. Gave the Gophs no room and took quick advantage of Gopher mistakes. I could see the Irish making it to Philly.

                Agreed. They were the main reason the Gophers' special teams sucked.

                  Besides that fact, I thought NBC's announcers were awful as well. Those guys were so bad it made it hard to watch. These guys rolled out every hockey cliche' they had ever heard in what sounded like an attempt to sound "hockey savvy".

                    ND is a very good team, they play so well in the defensive zone which makes it tough to get grade A scoring chances. We need to get pucks in deeper tonight and stay out of the box. The 2 offensive zone penalties we had (both unnecessary) led to 2 goals by ND and essentially was the difference in the game.

                      The game developed poorly:

                      1st period: we had the better play but just couldn't put the puck in the net.
                      2nd period: bad period where we didn't play well...particularly on special teams...when they got their rhythm and figured out the Gophers
                      3rd period: they put what they learned into practice...took advantage of NHL rink, more mature team and physical play

                      Unfortunately it started spiraling downhill after the Guertler penalty. The announcers actually took the time to understand Minnesota hockey and talked about it. So I guess the content was largely ok.

                      We'll see about tonight...but I think they have the recipe. If the Gophers don't adjust and/or take it up a notch, look for a repeat.
                      Go Gophers!

                        Are there any Notre Dame Fans?

                        There are a few of us. Nice win by the Irish last night. Felt ND took control in 2nd period through remainder of the game. I was in attendance and there were a large number of Minnesoate fans. Looking forward to tonight and the next 3-4 years of playing a program with such a historical significance in college hockey.

                          You've got a nice team, and what looks like a beautiful new arena. Congrats on a big win. Your guys shut us down, and that hasn't been easy for teams to do. If your team keeps that up, it could be a special season for you guys.

                            First off, congrats to ND on a solid win.

                            Camera angle: blame the arena, not the network. Arenas dictate the camera angles sometimes, guys.
                            Announcers: the PBP guy was good, the color guy was HORRIBLE. Putrid. Kept repeating stuff over and over.

                            AND FOR THE LAST FRIGGIN' TIME, IT'S "loo-CHEE-ya," NOT "LOO-cheeya."

                                To get technical, Vah-nek is closer to how it would be pronounced in Austria...

                                A bit of a frustrating game last night. Gophers were having a really hard time finding space to move into off the puck. The width of the rink might have had a little to do with that, but Notre Dame did a great job with defensive positioning and awareness. It led to a lot of forced passes and unclean touches; probably the worst the Gopher passing game has looked so far this season.

                                Clearly special teams were the difference in the game. 5-on-5 it was a 1-1 game. I think we all knew that if MN didn't get the pk/pp sorted out it was only a matter of time until it cost them.

                                It's going to be another tough one tonight. I think Notre Dame is built in a way that will be tough for the Gophers. ND did a great job of taking the transition game away from MN, and there wasn't much else going for the Gophers. MN will need to get a solid forecheck going and try to get a bit more time in the offensive zone I think, but those are two areas that seem to be going against the grain for them in terms of strengths.

                                Hopefully special teams will be better tonight. If the Gophers lose that part of the game 2-0 again it will be extremely difficult for them to win.
