The regular season title was the program’s fifth consecutive including the last two WCHA titles and the first three Big Ten titles. Boston University is the only other Division […]
More inconsistant play at MSU this past weekend. I nice 4-2 win followed by getting shutout 5-0. UGLY! So we talk about that and take many listener questions. A 3rd straight B1G title is almost a guarantee at this point. The would be 5 straight titles going back to the WCHA. The BADgers are still bad, will Eaves still be employed next week? As usual there is bonus audio from Don Lucia, Hudson Fasching and […]
Minneapolis, Minn. — Minnesota travelled to Ann Arbor in December trying to get out of Yost Arena still ahead of Michigan in the Big Ten Standings. They had the same goal this weekend at Mariucci Arena and an overtime game-winner by Hudson Fasching put the Gophers back in first place with a 3-2 win over the Wolverines. “We feel good, I mean we’re in first place, that’s about as good as you can feel to […]
Minneapolis, Minn. – Minnesota spotted Penn State two goals before finding their game. The Gophers (14-13-0, 9-3-0) rallied for a brief third period lead, but Penn State (17-8-3, 7-5-0-0) capitalized on their opportunity late to win 5-3 at Mariucci Arena in front of 10,151. The Nittany Lions tried and failed to match Minnesota’s speed and skill Friday night according to Zach Saar, but they returned to their team identity of playing simple and playing for […]
Cammarata #1 Star with GWG and an Assist Minneapolis, MN – What a difference a week can make. After a disappointing, winless weekend at the North Star College Cup, the Gophers (14-12-0 Overall, 9-2-0 B1G) rode the best game of the year from Taylor Cammarata, along with a fair number of excellent saves by Eric Schierhorn, to earn a hard-fought 4-1 victory over the Penn State Nittany Lions (16-8-3, 6-5-0) Friday night. The win, combined […]
St. Paul – Minnesota entered the North Star College Cup well aware of their recent struggles against their in-state rivals. They leave the weekend with two more losses falling 4-2 to Bemidji State, 3-2 to Minnesota State, and are now 1-12 in their last 13 games against the Beavers, Bulldogs, Huskies, and Mavericks. “It’s not like we take these games easier, or lighter than other games, we have these marked on our calendar as I […]
Gophers Score in Bunches, Early and Late, Sweep Bucky with Blowout Plenty of Gopher offense, plenty of cheap shot Badger play…some things rarely change in this rivalry. The Gophers jumped out to an early lead against a struggling & disinterested defensive team (usually known for its defense), withstood some sloppy play in the middle, and put their foot on Bucky’s throat late, to the tune of a 9 – 2 win on Saturday night. The […]
