    If we're thinking of the same play, (I can't remember if it was him for sure - feed across to the right side of the net, 7 feet out and missed?) he was handcuffed by a pass that wasn't quite on causing the miss ( I can't picture it exactly but it seems like it was almost in his feet. I just remember as soon as the puck went wide, I knew the pass was the problem.) It seemed like a lot of their passes both nights were just off enough to throw off timing for the follow up pass or shot. I expect that will improve. It seemed worse on Friday, as often seems to be the case when a team isn't skating and trying to make longer passes. But there were still signs of it on Saturday, even when they were skating better.

    I didn't really like having this series this early in the season. Neither team looked as sharp as I expect they will look by mid-season when one would expect to see a better played game, with more chances generated off skill plays and less off errors and miscues.

      So let me see if I got this straight...the Gophs looked rough in the first two games of the season on the road at their biggest rival and you are all surprised? The lines didnt click and the PK and PP stunk even though they had played a whole whopping 1 GAME TOGETHER previous to the trip? Yes I can see why everyone is so upset stupid gophers should have been clicking on all cylinders like it was the second half of the season and we were playing Tech!!!!11!!1! My lord the team didnt even make the NCAAs last year did you really think they were going to start off the season on fire?

      Maybe my vision was clouded or my mind was mush from the ******** seating in the upperdeck at the Puke Arena but I liked what I saw a lot on Saturday and that seemed to be the consensus of the people that were there. Friday was horrible but the team rebounded and played 100% better the next night what more can you ask?

      If you guys want to already concede the team is terrible that is fine but I would suggest then maybe not watching this year because I think you are going to be sorely mistaken.

      BTW watching a game at the Puke Gardens Arena or whatever they call it is like watching a game at the X right down to the cheesy dance music and 80s hits and the fake "Fan o Meters"! They also have 3/4 of their fans sitting on their hands just like at Mariucci

          Oh please you read this thread you would think they lost in OT to Union...waaaah the pk was horrible...boohoo the PP passed liked crap...sniff sniff I am not getting back on the bandwagon yet...its two games in and people think this should be the 1980's Oilers by what they have said here! Last year the Gophers got mauled twice in the Forks and put up no fight and this year they fought back and played BETTER the second night...that puts them 2 steps ahead of last year already.

          Don't be Sioux fans, 2 games in October is nothing to get your panties in a bunch about especially on the road

          Christ why am I the one being positive? (I wasnt Friday night but then again it was hard to be they played like Bantams out there )

            You're worse than Sioux fans. At least they wait about five games to call for Hakstol's head and they keep it on SiouxSports. After one game Gopher fans were calling for Lucia's head here, GPL and everywhere else.

              If they had played like Sat. night all weekend I would have had no issues. Friday night threw me into a huge tailspin though. Sports psychology never ceases to amaze me.

                Just to clarify, my comments on the pk wasn't a critique of their play so much as a comment on the fact that they seemed to switch from the attacking the puck style I remembered from last year to a more stay at home style, which surprised me given the success they had on the pk last year. I realize that might also change, as the players get more comfortable.

                I'll admit I was very disappointed in the lack of heart on Friday, given that the last couple years they seemed to come out firing on all cylinders at the beginning of the year. Saturday did look much improved. But by no means have I given up on the team after one weekend.

                    Frankly, I wasn't too excited by the Gophs performance Saturday. The Sioux just seemed as much deflated as the Gophers seemed charged. Remembering Friday's Sioux team...we're lucky to have a point.

                    All this understanding its very early.

                        At least we're winning the face-off battle 33-17 so far.

                          Someone on GPL says that the Gophers match up well with UAA so the games should be better.

                          I guess the Gophers don't match up with Denver.

                            It's ok. According to GPL, we were also supposed to lose the games against Denver because they were ranked higher, so don't be upset that we got shut out 6-0 at home both nights against a clearly superior team.

                                Well, I guess my Sunday afternoon is a bit more open now that I don't have to even bother watching back tonight's game.

                                While we're all not happy with the results so far this season, lets give this thing some time. It's not like we were pounded by Union and RMU or something. These are two legit national contenders in North Dakota and Denver.

                                Sure, it would've been nice to see the Gophers actually in the games, but it's not even November yet.

                                North Dakota has proved so many times that even with a rough start to the season, there is plenty of time to turn things around.
