    That was not good. Is it me just looking through red and white sunglasses, or does Bench lack a feel for the game? Or does the MN gig just have too much pressure? She looked very average out here, when you needed an eye popping save it just never happened.
    I don’t know what game you were watching, but Bench was left out to dry for two games straight. She might want the 4th goal back from Friday, but other than that not much that could’ve been done on her part. “Needed an eye popping save” she did manage to stop two badger breakaways as well as make consistent saves on Olympic level players in the slot. Badger goals were scored from rushes with poor defense by the Gophers and not from sustained possession, which goes to show how she can manage a game if she was given just a fraction of help.

      You mentioned the 4th Wisconsin goal that Watts scored on Friday and I would agree that was a goal that, most of the time, goalies will make the save on. But overall, other than nit-picking about a little better rebound control, she was hung out to dry by Minnesota's so called defense.

      What I'm curious to see is how this coaching staff is going to try and cover up the deficiencies that exit in Minnesota's defense. They were exposed early on in the first series of the year against OSU and they even gave up 41 shots in a game against Mankato. Hey, maybe they could schedule more games against SCSU.

        • Returning goaltenders next year will be challenged by this young lady for the starting position. To twice make the USA U18 team she has to be pretty solid.

          • 4-3 Gophers up after two periods. Many boneheaded turnovers by the Minnesota defense has kept OSU in this...

            Like a broken record but sheesh, the video feed is just amateur hour. Is it too much to ask for an announcer? Probably, but maybe that's a good thing...

                ("broken record" makes me laugh these days. It is double anachronism. Records are mostly gone, and records that "broke" were made of shellack, pre-World War II. I try to catch myself, but I still say it occasionally.)

                  True...It would be better said "like a record that skips". 7-4 final the Gophers add to their 2 goal lead with an ENG. #11 for Minnesota with one of the stupidest penalties you'll ever see with just over 2 minutes left in the 3rd period up by 2 goals...

                  Oh and records are still around plus the younger generation is into them. Not just old fuddy-duds like me.

                    I have a niece-in-law, early twenties, whom I am giving mine to, a half-dozen or so at a time, sort-of artist-by-artist. She loves them.

                      • Another game where Minnesota was outshot by a fair margin (43-30). It has been a problem right from the get-go and they are not making adjustments to rectify the problem.

                        • Big border battle this weekend! I'm hoping the home team saved a good part of their energy last Saturday for the games this weekend!

                          Go Gophers!

                            • You're up 2-0 and then you give up a terrible goal from the far side below the dot. That one is on Bench.

                              After 2 periods its 2-1 Minnesota.
