    I am indeed fully aware of the other US born D on UW's team. I would not surmise that UW's 5th, 6th and 7th D have a snowball's chance in a hot place of playing for team USA at this point in their careers. But amazingly their 3rd best D did make the team. Good for her. DeVito has also seen the ice for UW on the D side though she is listed as a F.

    Gopher recruits of note...

    Maggie Nicholson with a great assist on the game winner scored by Kiara Zanon.
    Skylar Vetter, in goal, played very well.

    They did, topping Yale on Saturday 6 - 3 and again on Sunday 4 - 1. The first period on Saturday featured uninspired hockey consistent with a long layoff in which the two teams combined for a rousing seven shots on goal. Things picked up after that. Sunday's crowd seemed to spend a lot of their time following the Vikings game on their phones. If I remember correctly, the 10 Gopher goals were scored by 8 different players, extending the home streak without a hat trick. Yale made them work, which is a good thing.

    Going up against the Vikings I was impressed by the fact that the game drew 2,102 fans! And there were 2,507 who attended Saturday's game - pretty good for a non-conference series against a non-rival.

    If you will forgive me I will now admit that my post was intended to be sarcasm. I have been coming here for a long time and I do not recall a single other time when a weekend series went past without any notice on this forum. I dunno, crowds are slightly larger but USCHO chatter is significantly smaller.

    And actually, I was at Sunday's game.

    And I spent the break between the first and second periods following the Vikings game on my phone.

    But also, I too have noticed that it has been a really long time since I have thrown my hat onto the ice. I fondly recall Hannah Brandt scoring hat tricks in each of her first two home games as a Gopher (although if I recall correctly, one of the goals from one of the games was later credited to another player leaving her with only five goals for the two games). And I also note that Taylor Heise had three in the home exhibition game against Hamline. But it was only a friendly exhibition and no one threw any hats.

    Thanks for checking in OldDave.

    Someone should check the archives. The two game attendance total seems likely to be a record for a series which did not include Wisconsin or possibly North Dakota. My memory of the long gone old days when UMD was a championship contender (not to say that they never will be again) does not include any crowds of that size for the Dogs.

    Maybe ARM knows.

    We occasionally checked our phone for an update on the score. With just a few minutes to go in the game the phone showed the score was 23-20 New Orleans so we turned the phone off only to hear from someone that the game was going into overtime a few minutes later. It wasn't until I read the paper this morning that I discovered the touchdown was "reversed by a replay because Cook's knee was down."

    As far as the hockey game goes, I thought the Gophers tightened things up both on defense and in the net in the second game. It was too bad Scobee didn't get a shutout.

    Minnesota's defense was fine on Saturday. They gave up three goals, but two of those came with less than seven minutes to play and a four goal lead, the second after a dubious penalty.

    The first period on Saturday was sloppy. They looked like they'd never seen a neutral zone trap before. That was in part due to a month layoff and in part, according to Joel Johnston, because, as a team, they'd never seen a neutral zone trap before. Once they had an intermission to regroup and get some coaching, they dismantled it.

    The third line had two goals on Saturday, and a lot of very close chances on Sunday even though they didn't get it to go in. If that line continues to score regularly, this is a very scary team.

    I'm going to suggest you continue to not show up for games, your synapses of the game is more accurate when you are not there.
    BTW, how was the Anti-Trump protest on Saturday, did anybody spray you with urine or nail you with an egg?

    Pretty tuff for Boreen and Oden to score on Sunday when they had a grand total of one shot between them. Skaja had 5 but I'm not sure how many, if any, where with her usual linemates since they seemed to rotate three centers with the four lines. They had control of the puck often enough, but seemed to be looking to recreate their pretty goals on Saturday instead of just firing the puck at the net when they had a chance and seeing what happens.
    For example ...
    Perhaps Hengler saw that the far post was open and flipped the puck towards it, but whether it was a pass or a shot, it looked like something you'd see in between periods from the Lil Chippers, that Keller got a piece of and deflected in, proving that getting the puck on goal is never a bad choice, and further, there are no ugly goals, they are all pretty, they all count the same, and this one was the game winner.

    It would explain some things...Although he was able to recognize a variation of the neutral zone trap that Yale tried unless someone sitting by him told him that's what they were doing.

    When presented with an analogous situation (Packers, Badgers, or Badger football vs hockey, etc). I take a radio and listen while I watch hockey. And I'm pretty sure Viking games are broadcast on radio.

    Am I that old that 'radio' doesn't occur to others? :-)

    I was waiting until MBTC's post count in this thread became > 1 before I would allow myself to post in it again.

    ARM has forgotten more than he ever knew to begin with, but I can remember a couple series with UMD where the attendance exceeded this past weekend. One was in 2004 where the PPC held a silent auction on Saturday so the game was in Mariucci and Sunday was in Ridder. The other was in 2013 when "The Streak" had started to generate a buzz and non-traditional fans were starting to realize that GWH was a thing. Both series exceeded 5,000. The record for regular season nonconference is likely the inaugural game versus Augsburg (not a series, but greater than this weekend). For any nonconference, the 2013 FF had 6,800, but I get that it isn't what you meant by a nonconference series.

    I don't remember ever owning a radio that wasn't several times the size of my phone. And if you'd spent your life as a Vikings fan, you'd know that they don't justify one carrying a boom box on your shoulder like Radio Raheem in "Do the Right Thing." Occasionally sticking my head into the club room to check the score is sufficient to monitor the Purple.
