  • Minnesota at Penn St. - Feb. 17-18, Let's get ready to Rummmble!

    Penn St. snapped a four game losing streak with some convincing Ws on the road against the BADgers. The Gophers managed to eek out a split on the road with OSU with a record PP performance last Saturday.

    Penn St. currently #6 in the PWR and Gophers at #4 means huge PWR implications for both teams in this series. With the Gophers sweeping Penn St. at Mariucci a couple weeks ago, the Nittany Lions will be looking for some payback on home ice. This could turn out to be a very physical series with a lot of SOG by both teams.

      Like to see the Gophers win Friday this time to have a shot at the sweep.

          Looking back at our last series - just two weeks ago - the difference in the two teams' goaltending was huge. Funkey and Jones were a combined 48/58 for a SV% of .828 while Eric Schierhorn had two outstanding games, making 66 saves on 69 shots (.957). A big question is whether each teams' goaltending reverts closer to their season-long averages, where Penn State (mostly Jones) actually holds a slight advantage at .905 vs. Schierhorn's .897 (although he's mostly played better than that stat would indicate since the break, after an inconsistent 1st half). Be that as it may, Schierhorn will have to be sharp in front of a hostile Penn State crowd if the Gophers hope to keep their strong positive momentum going.

          The other big question is how healthy are the Gophers' skaters after an absolutely bruising series last weekend? Hopefully everyone is healed and ready to go. Penn State has to be feeling pretty good about themselves too after sweeping Bucky in Madison last weekend. Should be a great series. I would say a split is the most likely outcome.

              It was very difficult to root for PSU last week, but I guess that was the one situation it was okay. Still, don't feel right about it and it may take a sweep to wash away the uneasy feelings.

                  Note to OSU fans, you won't find a single gopher fan on here* trying to defend that hit. It was dirty and Gates should hit the showers early** for it.

                  *-if there are, I'm confident they will be called out by Minnesota fans.
                  **-Easy Sandusky, these kids can actually defend themselves.

                    Yeah, no question Gates deserved the major. Gophers were fortunate to escape with only the one goal against.

                      Yup. Not dirty but clearly stupid and deserved the call.

                        Dirty may have been the wrong word. But it was 100% deserved (the major)

                          This is a massive win for the team. Win one more and we have a downhill path to a #1 seed.
