We had BTN in studio analyst and former Buckeye Paul Caponigri join us on the podcast this week. He gave us a bit of national perspective on the Gopher split with MSU as well as the up and coming series with OSU. We also had a great discussion on the evolution of the BigTen Conference.

Minneapolis, MN – “We let that one slip through our fingers tonight.” First-year head coach Bob Motzko lamented the one that got away, as the Gophers blew a 2-0 lead and fell to Michigan State 4-2 Saturday evening. After a pair of powerplay goals put the Minnesota Gophers (4-6-1 Overall, 2-2-0 B1G) ahead in the second, costly mistakes resulted in two late-second period goals to tie the game for the Michigan State Spartans (5-7-0, 1-3-0). The […]

Minneapolis, MN – The best of times are still to come in the Motzko era. Tonight, it was the worst of times. After the game, coach Motzko knew it: “it was not a very good performance by a Gopher hockey team tonight.” The Minnesota Gophers (2-5-1 Overall, 1-1-0 B1G) lost to the St. Lawrence Saints (2-8-0, 0-2-0 ECAC) in overtime, a two-goal third period rally by the Gophers to tie the game late thwarted by a […]
Still trying to figure this team out as they split with the BADgers. We talk that along with attendance, games on Facebook this weekend, and of course the games with St. Lawrence. You can listen to the podcast above, or via iTunes / Google Play.Check out older episodes on the Podcast Page.
Madison, WI- Not long ago, a 3-1 Wisconsin win would have meant a slogging, painful game in which the Badgers rope-a-doped a couple goals and packed the slot in order to eke out a victory. Under third-year head coach Tony Granato, the defend-and-grind style is no longer welcome in Madison. The Badgers did just eke out a victory to even the series Saturday against the Golden Gophers, but they did so in style. Both teams played […]

Minneapolis, MN – “Well, we weren’t a very good hockey team tonight. If you were at the game, you saw it.” The Bob Motzko era is not off to the start Gopher fans would have wanted, but the coach is nothing if not blunt. The Minnesota Gophers (1-2-1) got beat by a better team Friday evening, losing at home to #4 Minnesota State (6-1-0) 5-1. Minnesota State got on the board first, with Dallas Gerads […]
