Gophers Swept out of South Bend

Notre Dame used some timely five on five goals and their superb defense to the tune of a 5 – 2 win on Saturday night to lock up a sweep of the Gophers. Cale Morris stopped 40 shots (84 over the weekend series) for the Irish and was certainly a difference maker again tonight as Notre Dame has now marched to a 6 – 0 conference record in their inaugural season as a (affiliate) member […]

Gophers Stymied, Shut Out 1-0 by Notre Dame

South Bend, IN – Some games, the bounces just don’t go your way. Hockey games are often decided “on a bounce of the puck,” but not many adhere to that maxim as literally as Friday night’s top-10 matchup between #6 Minnesota and #4 Notre Dame. The Gophers outshot Notre Dame 44-23 on the evening, but the only goal of the game was scored by the Irish’s Andrew Oglevie, whose second-period powerplay shot from the high […]

Gophers Convert Big Lead, Beat Harvard 4-2

Minneapolis, MN – After a weekend of blown leads at Michigan, Minnesota fans could not be blamed for wondering whether this Gopher team had it in them to convert leads into victories. Friday’s Harvard game provided a good test. After losing three- and four-goal leads last weekend, the #7-ranked Gophers (8-4-1 Overall, 3-2-1-1 B1G) salted away a four-goal lead against #13 Harvard (2-4-0 Overall, 0-1-0 ECAC), bending but not breaking in the third period to […]

Gophers Fold Again, But Hang On For ‘Tie’

Not entirely sure where to start with one.  Because as bad as some of it looked, there was a lot of good to come from it.  It wasn’t a loss (technically tonight’s result is a 6 – 6 tie) and they ended up getting an extra point in the standings, which we may look back on later in the year as helpful. As well, there weren’t many stretches during the game tonight where the Gophers […]
