Recently...a 9-3 curbstomping of those sissies from Minnesota.

As requested...Sioux vs BC Eagles in Frozen Four final at the Providence Civic Center.  Was able to attend with some friends and it was a blast.    

North Dakota takes on the top ranked Badgers in the 2000 WCHA Final Five championship game.  Sconnie is led by Dany Heatley and Steve Reinprecht.

Siembida played great, but that was one sloppy hockey game.

UND's Pony Express Line against Furious George's DU Pioneers in the 2011 Final Five.  This game was 2 OT so I ended up splitting it into two videos.  That was even after cutting out the painful interview with former WCHA commish Bruce McLeod; felt like an hour but was probably only 5 minutes.:D

Of course I'm having trouble linking everything from YouTube so for now here you go...

Led by Phil Sykes' hat trick, North Dakota defeats the Badgers 5-2 for the NCAA title, March 27, 1982.  Great game as the Sioux took a 2-2 tie going into the 3rd period and won going away.  This is from an old tape so there are a couple really bad spots; especially in the 3rd period. (1:22:00-1:26:00 and 132:00-135:00) 

Gotta say, those Bucky fans are really having a good time.  Enjoy!

This is a true gem. I remember watching this with my dad when I was almost 8 years old. Thanks for posting this!

Watching these old games you really notice how actively involved the fans are.

I'm amazed at how out-numbered the Sioux fans were. Probably for the last time?

There were still a fair amount of Sioux fans there...we ended up flying into Boston and driving to Providence.  Not quite as easy as the BC fans who had about an hour drive, though.  Shorter distance than Grand Forks to Fargo.

It sounded like it was the Dane County Coloseum.

Is the Mike Stone on that 1982 team related to the current Stone in the NHL?

that 82 team was really loaded. 

This Gord Sherven was a very good player. Not one of the more recognizable names to me as the others but a helluva player.

He looked good, didn't he?  Could turn on the jets.

And the Cooperalls Driver wore.   Never seen those in a college game  before--and only a few in high school years ago.  A little surprised Bob Johnson allowed it, but I guess it says something about the man.

A total of 21 players from this title game played in the NHL.  UND (12) sent James Patrick, Craig Ludwig, Troy Murray, Dave Tippett, Rick Zombo, Phil Sykes, Jon Casey, Dave Donelly, Gord Sherven, Darren Jensen, Jim Archibald, and Dan Brennan to the NHL.  From Wisonsin (9) came Chris Chelios, Bruce Driver, Brian Mullen, Pat Flatley, Marc Behrend, John Newberry, Phil Houck, John Johannson, and Terry Kleisinger.  That's incredible!

I googled Sherven and he had a few years in North American hockey and then had many years in German hockey. He is a community leader in Calgary in the investment business and works at the same outfit as Perry Berezan.

Thanks Blackheart for giving me all these gems to watch during the lockdown.  You should get a Sioux Award for your work!

I think you have brought us more than good memories.  So much is said on this site about the the players, the team, and the game relative to what it once was.  Watching these games from different eras and coached by different coaches in serial fashion really helps with perspective.

The Sioux punch their ticket to the 2000 Frozen Four with a win over upstart Niagara at Mariucci Arena. Andy Kollar, in for the injured Karl Goehring, backstopped the Sioux to a 4-1 victory.  I was fortunate enough to attend this one and I'll always remember the way Commie went after the Niagara player who plowed into Kollar in the second period. (right after the 1:05:35 mark)

I was there as well and I went absolutely ballistic when that happened. That punk took two or three extra steps so he could plow into Kollar. If this had happened in a different era, Commie would have ended his career.

As much as the announcers liked to give Niagara a chance at winning this game, they never had a chance. The first period their strategy was "let's get the puck out of our end." The second period was "let's shoot the puck from the blue line or way out on the perimeter." The third period was pretty much "we're screwed".
