Having the top line in college hockey didn't hurt, either. :)

Not at all.  

But, Cam made some BIG saves that stymied momentum.

We had the best defensive performance of any Sioux team ever! It's not easy and it finally paid off! the defense and offense never played selfish and blocked shots and  backchecked every play. I have never seen a team work this hard all year all my life.

Luke Johnson had his ups & downs but came back the second half of the season & became one of my favorite players - too bad getting hurt just before the championship - but he deserves credit for helping us get there

 

HOPE EVERYONE WHO CAN COME BACK DOES - WE NEED TO SHOW THIS WAS NO FLUKE & YOU ARE SPECIAL & WELCOME HERE

Post game press conference up on USCHO

I thought it was interesting Berry mentioned that he stressed backchecking in the neutral zone and that his most talented players bought into it, which helped create the culture.  We often talked here how well Schmaltz, Boeser, Caggiula and others backchecked all season long.

The saddest thing is that we never won a banner with the beautiful logo.

Yes we did... in the fall of 2001. And I am almost positive that you were at the game.

What was the difference?  This year WE had the hot goalie who didn't give up anything easy.  :cool:

Totally agree. Cam is MVP in my eyes. Yes we had guys that can bury the puck, but it's so much easier when you're playing with a lead, or a tie, and not playing catch up - and Cam provided that. He made many sick, crucial saves that could have changed momentum and maybe ND would have grab those sticks a little tighter. Instead he just demoralized the opponents.

Does anyone find it interesting that we adopt a new nickname and this team wins a Natty.  The curse is gone.  Michigan better watch out, objects in their mirror are closer than they appear.

If you want to shake your head listen to the QU coach's post-game comments. 

Is he whining again about playing us at "home"

What I saw of it, he showed great praise for UND?  What did I miss?

Something that wasn't really brought up is how UND beat their neutral zone 1-1-3.  Noticed a pass to guy on half wall, then a quick pass to cutter about 10 feet away.  That guy beat the trap to blue line and started the rush.

Was that an adjustment cause BC seemed to have issues that UND didn't?

He claimed we hit three of their guys with elbows to the head. 

They were the softest team ever when they got hit.  They did some hitting but when on receiving end they got hurt constantly.  

Is holding guys down on the ice with the shaft of your stick legal?  Cause they got pretty good at that.
