WCHA Playoffs!!

Well, well. Let the tourney begin. The top 3 seeds would appear to have their 1st rd. series all but locked up. The other 2 series could go either way IMO. The Gophs definitely got what they needed getting paired up with MSU-Mankato. Me and a couple buddies got tix to the Friday night showdown in Kato grin.gif. That game will set the tone for sure. If Gophs win Fri, I think it'll be a a UM sweep. Best time of yr. March Madness Baybee!!

I think the Mavs could easily win the series, I definitely think it will go to three games though. I wouldn't say that the first three have easy sweeps either, all three should win but maybe not all with sweeps. UAA always shows up in the first round. Tech is not afraid to play tough and physical at the Ralph, plus the Sioux could be without Trupp, Genoway and Oshie. Duluth will definitely give the Pioneers a handful too. It's tough to pick a winner in the Badger Husky game, especially considering the last meeting between the two. I got tickets to Fridays game in GF should be one heck of a weekend.

The Mavs are always a tough team to beat.

"The Gophs definitely got what they needed getting paired up with MSU-Mankato."

You are funny TwinkieDink.

If you haven't noticed, Mankato is the better team this year and one of the hotter teams in the country right now. I can't wait for this series.

They will get the Gophs in their rink and take care of them. I like the Gophers and root for them, but am a Mav fan first and I am sick of the front-running gophers hockey team and wouldn't mind seeing them get handled this weekend.

Gophers are down this year and their fans have been squirming all season. Lovin every minute of it.

I think it will be a tough series for the Gophers and they will probably lose.

Minnesota State Mankato is not even close to one of the hottest teams in the country as if there was such a thing this year!

Go Gophs!

I didn't say hottest, I said hotter. 9 of their last 13 WCHA games they have won.

They came from near the bottom of the league to lock up home ice. Not as great as of late, but for a bunch of "leftovers" they are having a good year.

Well either way whoever wins that series will be my team to root for. Like I said, I am a Gophs fan too, but living where I do and being an MSU grad, GO MAVS!!

i was at the mavs game last friday and they were playing exelent hockey 5-2 they won it was a good game. I think the mavs will win the series 2-1 over the gophers and they have a good chance of making the ncaa tournement if they win in the first round.

go mavs!

-CC over UAA in 2. Games should be closer than expected though as Seawolves are usually pesky in the tourney.

-UND over MTU in 2. Tough building to play in and the Sioux always seem to peak this time of year.

-I look for Duluth to upset the Pioneers. It's still payback time for '03-'04 NCAA's. Dog's in 3. Probably too biased for my school here, but I'll still go out on a limb.

-I think MSU is the hotter team out of the two, but for some reason they always struggle against the gophs. Goph's in 3.

-SCSU over UW in 3. I really struggle to call this one either way.

I'm a MSU grad and will always be a fan, also a Gophs fan. Don't care who is "the better team" this yr. I'm going to the Friday game and won't be cheering for either, just a neutral fan that will be happy with any outcome.

You gotta remember, the Gophs always bring it tourney time (except a Holy Cross incident that will linger forever). Don't care who is "the better team" this yr. That means squat come tourney time. And the history of the series says it all--Gophs lead all-time series with some obsurd # like 33-5, doesn't matter where they play.

Thank you solbes for your common sense. i'm gonna say easy sweeps for CC and UND. UMD-DU might go 3 games, might.

I am hoping my SCSU huskies make a good showing but they have been so up and down this year you never know. I think the mavs will get the upper hand on the gophers unless the Gophers start getting handed 9-10 power plays a game like the last time they were the playoff road team against duluth a few years back. This is one of those rare down years for the gophs but you can never count them out

I know the WCHA wants the Gophers to win, but I would think that a MSU-Mankato win would actually serve the WCHA very well long term. It would elevate the level of that program. Being the fourth D-1 program in Minnesota (behind U of M Twin Cities, St. Cloud, and U of M Duluth), elevating the level of MSU-Mankato hockey would serve the WCHA - as well as hockey in Minnesota - in general.

I'm a fan of WCHA hockey in general, and would love to see the other Minnesota D-1 programs raised to the level of the Gophers, Sioux, Badgers, etc.

Sounds good to me but WCHA wants/needs the rodents for better attendance and more $$. Who's reffing the series? Conspiracy theory confirmed?

was at the Friday game between MSU and UM. Sure did appear a conspiracy was in line, we were 3 rows up from blue line and watched numerous comments between the shepard bros. gophs were on PP the whole 1st period.

All 4 of the Gophers penaltys were obvious calls and to be honest the 2nd penalty called on the Gophs was bit suspect.

So 4-2 in penaltys in favor of the Gophers after 2 periods isn't exactly a conspiracy....

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.
    • The Chemist
      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.
    • eyeguy 54
      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more. 
    • monstermoose78
      I would fish them trees
    • HunterFisher11
      So I should set my house in really shallow in on those trees?? Or stay out a little bit on the drop? Going to do a over night if that makes a difference?
    • monstermoose78
      Find them trees if they are in the water. I fished a lake like that and it was fishing the crappies in the trees. I had to use heavier line to horse them out quick.
