    • Can you believe this is the same team from last year? It's going to be exciting watching them grow even better as the year goes on. And then a restock with new talent. Finally, a split is nice, but a sweep of the chokers would be unbelievable.

        Knee-on-knee, contact to the head and spearing in the last 10 minutes. Only one was called.

From his second year until he left, they became a huge part of the atmosphere. He mentioned it frequently in postgame interviews. The players would always go and salute the band at the end of games. I know he's on your side on this one, but he may need to focus on straightening out the hockey end of things first.
          Great to hear! I’d say after tonight Mike Hastings has the capital to walk into Mac’s office and tell him the band needs to take precedent over DJ’s at men’s hockey games.

          • Man, I dont even know what to say. Their hustle & ability to eliminate time & space plus the back check is just phenomenal!

            HOCKEY IS BACK, BABY!!

              The puck possession time for Wisconsin is just insane. No time and space for the opposing team do anything with it. Amazing. I think the gophers look lazy in their d zone like Wisconsin used to look.

              • Wow….just wow…..what a great win. Great puck movement, creativity in the offensive zone, great pressure on the puck on defense, and some timely saves by McClellan. I really like how Bucky didn’t panic in their own zone and made good passes or lifted pick out to center ice. Aggressive but disciplined play from all the lines that were on the ice - very few mental mistakes from what I saw.

                The chippy stuff at the end was a bit surprising coming from the “Pride on Ice”. Strobel goes high on Finley, Tassy takes a knee-to-knee hit right before that and then Nelson finishes off a fine display of sportsmanship with a deliberate slash on Dexheimer that was seen by everyone in the arena except the refs.

                The results may be different tomorrow, and there will be ups and downs this season, but I think what we saw tonight is a preview of what Hastings is going to be able to accomplish in Madison.

                • Frankly a shocking and fun result. Great to see this team way ahead of schedule in terms of development.

                    • The term I keep hearing is "accountability". Perservere, move forward, but hold each other accountable. Their drive to pucks is just outstanding.

                      • That was awesome.

                          Agreed on all fronts.

                          the cheap shots by the gophers was a bit surprising but they’re so arrogant they get frustrated very easily.

                          if Wisconsin had a Sean Hill or Ryan McDonagh type on D I think the rats would think twice about crossing the line into dirty play.

                          I just hope to see a repeat of effort tomorrow and let the chips fall where they may.

                          it’s insane how quickly Mike Hastings has turned this team around and I know they had more talent to work with than Fickell inherited but still…Hastings looks like Lombardi or “Badger” Bob right now.

                          • One of my favorite tidbits....they are still one of the youngest teams in NCAA but they are top 5 in ht and wt. Their ability to be physical and win pucks is out freaking standing.

                            Under TG they were consistently small in both ht and wt.

                            • They are just so smart with and without the puck. Excellent commitment to team defense. Even on breakdowns that turn into 2-on-1s they do enough to slow the play down and let the other backcheckers catch up.

                              McClellan made some excellent saves and was a sponge (minimal rebounds). The way he and the team defense play, if they score 3 goals on the night they are going to win most games. It’s a culture shock for sure after the last 7 or so years.

                              Bantle - might be the most underrated forward on the team for me. I thought he was just a 4th line guy when the year started. He’s an absolute man amongst boys on the ice. He plays like I wish Stramel would play.

                              Lucius - loved the “shhhhhh” finger he gave the crowd!

                              DSP - this guy is sooo skilled with the puck. He finds all the soft areas on the ice and takes advantage of them. 10 points in 7 games. Tied for 3rd in the NCAAs so far.

                              Palodichuk - he is my favorite player on the team. Strong on the puck. Good defensive zone presence. Physical. Good stick. He’s a threat to score from the blueline. He feels like he’s already our best defenseman and there’s more untapped potential there.

                              • Looking very much like how quickly Hastings turned the Mavericks around.
                                My guy is a hard-nosed hockey player who is not afraid to crash the net. Your guy is a goon who runs the goalie.
