    No goal was the right call after the precedent set yesterday. Had yesterday's counted they would have counted tonight's. Western player was pushed downward, but he pops back up into Scheel. Onus is on him to arrest (ski term) and avoid further interference.

    Tough pill for them to swallow as that pretty much forces them to win the tournament to make it rather than receive a nice pairwise bump, but they aren't an easy out. That was a fun weekend of hockey, and could have gone their way either night.

    You nailed it, had last night's goal counted for UND then likely the W Mich goal tonight would not have been overturned.  Even Steven although the refs really effed it up worse Fri night with reversal of UND's goal (total garbage on their part).

    1. Minnesota - I think it all started with Mazako and Woog and their elitist bull$h!t. 

    2. St. Clown - wannabe institution and their fans/program seem to think they are among NCAA’s best.  A few years back in a press release they edited out the Sioux logo on the front of a jersey to make a political point.  People don’t forget. 

    3. Michigan - see Frozen Four 2011, still the toughest loss I have endured as a fan. That and what seemed like Red’s refusal time schedule regular season games with UND

    i should “hate” Denver and Duluth but I don’t.  They are programs I respect as they field good teams and make for great games to watch. I have always had a soft spot for CC. 

    Agree, vs Mich F4 semi-final toughest loss I remember and I've seen a few over many years.  It made it even tougher cus that team was so very good.  Was at Xcel to watch game and we won everything but the score.  Then we w/o doubt beat the *&%^! dawgs the next night for our 8th natty (and not their first).  That really hurt.

    ????  No way do ANY of them get NHL deals...I might worry that JBD will go to the CHL...

    Agree, nobody on this team has any business going pro early ("strike while the iron is hot', huh/WTH?) but could there be one or two promising underclassmen transferring elsewhere in light of this dumpster fire we have and that is not really looking promising next season barring bringing in a capable scorers (not likely)?  Hope effin not!

    What does bother me is hearing Berry talking about guys like Scheel and Jones and others being hurt, but then saying they don’t make excuses.  I am sure Denver would have liked to have Larson the whole first half as well.

    Great point, it is surely double-speak.

    Not kids.  18-24...just like 1/4 of most NHL rosters and 75% of boots in harms way.

    Yes, and as bad as things went at times, they still put forth the effort, which gives me hope.  I think the coaches have things they need to figure out, because one 10 goal scorer isn’t a reflection of the offensive talent of some of these guys.

    Agree, meaning we need a new coach.

    NDSU has a basketball team?

    Yup, barely finished over .500 but got better as the season went on (unlike some other ND university D-1 team) to win conf tourney and qualify for the NCAA.

    More just not a fan of pulling the goalie when we have sustained pressure with 5. If it was just another game sure but like i said when the season is on the line and only down by one.... we just saw what happens most of the time when you pull the goalie but hindsights 20/20

    Hey, fair point.  In retrospect, we almost seem to do better 5 on 5 than with a man advantage so perhaps you're on to something.

    Are you impressed with them?

    Because after 6 games I just don’t see it... 

    To be honest, I'm gonna go down the middle between you and Mafia Man.  Not sure they're a top 10 team as they are in the PW (probably should be around #12 or so).  I say this; if this series is at home and the way we carried most of the play for at least 4 of the 6 periods then we sweep Denver.  However, Denver gets great goal tending against us (all season long save for our 1 win), is a really good home team at mile high altitude, and we really struggle to score (I assume more so on the road vice at home) so really no surprise this wknd.  However, we lose to Canisius twice so did not grab home ice.

    I know, I've wondered the same thing.   We heard it last couple years, let's see some results for a change.    Talk is cheap.

    You guys nailed it.  Am sick and tired anymore these last 3 - 4 season seeing talk/articles saying the recruiting class coming in has all these blah-blah players that are draft picks, highly recruited by other big name hockey schools (which is true, unlike FCS football), and they're putting up all these points at their pre-UND level.  Again, either we're not very bright at recruiting anymore or these scorers/finishers are not progressing once they arrive.  I gotta think it's the latter otherwise other schools would not be recruiting them too.  It's gotta change, real soon.

    First goal was a defensive breakdown by us, allowing the DU forward to walk in uncontested and beat Thome from inside the slot. Second goal was a tipped shot from the point through traffic that Thome probably couldn’t see. 


    Okay, so likely not on him then.  Frustrating though is DU get 1 goal on a deflection on just 17 SOG but we have 32 SOG and can't even get 1 greasy goal thru traffic past the DU goalie.  Groundhog Day.

    Nope. deffinetly not pinning the loss on him, just observations on the play. He played well enough to win a hockey game, but .....the obvious ......zero goals scored.


    I'm not putting anything on Thome either regarding the lost when you give up just 2 goals against a top 10 tam and your own team is shut-out.  However, he did give up 2 goals on I believe just 17 SOG (it wasn't like he faced even 25 - 30 SOG) so that save %, while not awful (.882) is certainly not top tier (unless we hung him out to dry on both goals?) and needs to be better.  Again though, when your team does not score a goal then it doesn't matter if you have a .950 save %.

    Does anyone with any connections know if Berry "gets it" at all?  It is so hard to judge from the coachspeak and softballs from Schlossman and Hennesy.  At some point he needs to concede that big changes are needed.  If he can't see that then all may be lost until he leaves.

    Yup, he gets it.  Puts it all on a long nearing 2 seasons streak of bad puck luck and running into hot goalies.
