    Re: Minnesota Golden Gopher Season 2018-2019: Fire Motzko

    Is this all the chatter we get after a very nice win over the 'Fighting Irish of Notre Dame'? I tell you, being there and seeing the last couple of minutes was about as exciting as I've experienced all season. Yes, the Gophers collapsed in the 3rd, and yes they relied heavily on Robson, but they fought hard and managed to pull it out. Much better team D than we've seen for most of the 2018/2019 season. Nice to see our forwards aggressively coming back into the play and breaking up prime scoring chances by the opposition. Still lots of flaws in their game, but this time they stuck with it and got the win.

      agree - it was a good win for the boys -
      you could hear the crowd really cheering at the finish - very exciting -

      I had the am1130 feed synched with the fox sports TV - Frank, Wally and Pat - the WFP line - were pretty funny -
      They get so caught up in their comments the game is going on for 2 minutes and they're talking about other stuff --

      Really appreciated how the WFP crew commented that the 4th line was the spark yesterday and other lines were not playing well -- also good to hear a guest at the break (a new writer for The Athletic, Jessie Iagolo or something?) acknowledge that some of the old guys just have not been able to adjust to new coach/new systems, while the younger players have --

        They had Eric Vegoe on during a break.

              Vegoe would love that.

                      Locked up, we have to win the conference tourney to get a bid to the NCAA's, if I'm not mistaken.

                        Game Day!

                        Although this series has no post-season significance for the Gophers, it will be a good home ice test against a ranked team going into the B1G tourney next week. In 4 seasons, coach Greg Powers has transformed ASU from Arizona who? to a #12th ranked Sun Devils team with a hot goalie, an NCAA leading goal scorer and a travel budget the size of Sun Devils Stadium.

                        Netminder Joey Daccord is tied for most Ws and shutouts in the NCAA. Throw in a shot of Johnny Walker who leads the nation in goals scored (23) and SOG, and ASU could be quite a challenge for Gophers this weekend who are 5-5-0 in their last 10 games. ASU is currently on a 5 game winning streak.

                        The Gophers have relied heavily on their PP this season which sets the stage for a unique special teams battle between the Gophers PP ranked 6th in the NCAA @ 25.4% vs ASU's 9th ranked PK% @ 86.4%. I expect a very fast Sun Devils team out of the gate. IMO a hard forecheck is a key to success for the Gophers against an ASU team ranked 10th in total goals scored. Go Gophers!

                          Great preview, SteveO - well done!

                          One other tidbit: Motzko was quoted in the paper this morning saying that Robson and Schierhorn will each get a start this weekend.

                            Excited for tonight! Do we know if ASU will be invited to join the B1G?
                            Really impressive to see div1 hockey doing well out west! We have a great game - it's pretty neat to see div1 hockey growing!

                              I hope not. Don’t dilute the brand. ASU is NOT a big ten school. Johns Hopkins and Notre Dame (to a lesser extent) are.

                              It also adds a long flight. No thanks.
