Gophers VS UMD Rolly???

Recommended Posts

PierBridge

Our Gophers are taking on Rolly's Boy's the UMD Bulldogs at the DECC "duluth" in the best game on earth "college hockey" and I was wondering what your thoughts were on this series.

On paper and listening to all the hype after the last series with CC I'm assuming you guy's think it's a couple of blow outs?

If I know Rolly he's hoping for a split maybe a 3-1 Bulldog stunner on Fri and 4-2 loss Saturday?

I say the Doggys get at least a tie and maybe more?

I say the Puppies get their arse's handed to them on their home ice!! The only PRAYER they have is if there goalie stands on his head, kinda like the kid from Maine did against us! UMD won't finish higher than 6th in the conference. Whatcha got Rolly? tongue.gif

So you's guys don't seem worried that in the last 10 meetings, Minnesota Duluth leads 5-4-1. Six of the last seven games have been decided by two goals or less. The Golden Gophers have not won in Duluth since a 5-4 victory on Feb. 21, 2003. Minnesota has not had a road sweep in Duluth since Feb. 4-5, 2000.

Good Luck.... grin.gif

Gophers got lucky and skated away witha 3-2 OT victory. Da bulldogs could have easily skated away with 2 points tonight.

What was up with the officiating this weekend? Adams called some of the worst games I've seen in a while. Also, that ice looked terrible too; players were falling all over the ice, especially at the end of the second period, and the puck was bouncing all weekend.

We knew going in it was going to be a tough series against the Dogs up der! it always is.

Adams is the worst official in College Hockey the Gophers Cringe when he Officiates their games.

The bad ice is no fluke.... frown.gif

YUP, the Gophers played kinda flat and were atleast outplayed that second period (if my short term memory serves me right) and could very well have tied or lost tonight. In the end... a sweep is a sweep. grin.gif

As a Bulldog fan, I'll have to admit we lost both games. The Gophers are a good team and I don't have a problem with that. Adam has got to change his career though. I remember booing him when I was a season ticket holder in college, and he hasn't gotten any better.

I've never seen a ref change his mind 4 times and take 15 minutes to do it. It was controversial but goal or no goal, make a call and stick with it.

I think I was even more mad about the missed delay of game call at the end of the 3rd on Friday. Briggs was in trouble and he knew it. The puck came across to his right and he couldn't cover so he pushes the net off. Adam for some reason doesn't call it, and then he takes the puck out of the zone confused.gif

We've got some great refs in the WCHA (e.g. Campion), but it seems like a couple of these guys will never change and will always be making bad calls. --Frustrated

I agree with Solbes on the lack of a penalty call for delay of game, however it was Ryan Stoa that knocked the net off of it's moorings. I kinda felf bad for UMD fans the way their kids played their arses off and really didn't get as much (points wise) as they deserved. I guess if Minnesota would have lost the way UMD lost, I would have felt snakebitten... keep your heads up... alot of teams that are normally league powers are down this year so you guys should probably be fighting for a top five finish and home ice in the first round of the playoffs.

Did somebody say OT goal????

I thought the Dawgs played great, especially the last game. I just can't believe nobody has mentions what a sweet shot that was by Hirsch in OT!

I sure hope they don’t over look SCSU next weekend. They could give them some problems. SCSU’s goalie is really good.

By the way, don’t waste your money on the McDonalds McRib sandwich this time around. I just had one and they are only 25% as thick as they used to be! Just looking out for my fellow FMers.

      Spring turkey hunters hoping to bag a tom during the first two weeks of the season have until Friday, Jan. 26, to apply for a lottery permit. The season runs from April 18 to May 31 and is divided into six hunt periods, A through F (see table below). Hunt A and B licenses for firearms hunters age 18 and older are limited in availability and assigned via lottery drawing. Turkey lottery applications cost $5 and can be purchased online at mndnr.gov/licenses, by phone at 888-665-4236, or in person from a license agent. Successful applicants will receive a postcard in the mail by mid-February and can purchase their hunting license starting March 1. Firearms licenses for hunts C, D, E and F are not lottery-limited and will be available for purchase over-the-counter beginning March 1. All licensed turkey hunters can participate in Hunt F if they have an unused tag from one of the earlier hunt periods. Archery and youth hunters (under 18) are exempt from the lottery and may purchase a spring turkey license valid during all hunt periods, including hunts A and B. Surplus lottery licenses from hunts A and B, if available, will be sold over-the-counter starting in mid-March. Visit mndnr.gov/hunting/turkey for more information about turkey hunting in Minnesota. 2018 Spring Turkey Hunt Periods
      Hunt A: April 18 – 24
      Hunt B: April 25 – May 1
      Hunt C: May 2 – 8
      Hunt D: May 9 – 15
      Hunt E: May 16-22
      Hunt F: May 23-31 Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Youth and adults can learn to hunt turkeys this April with experienced volunteers who will cover safe hunting techniques, how to call-in turkeys, hunting tactics and field dressing a bird. “We teach the skills and techniques that allow new turkey hunters to become lifelong hunters,” said Mike Kurre, learn-to-hunt program coordinator with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “This has been a successful program and as a bonus, we love hearing how former participants go full circle to teach others how to hunt.” Participants can apply through Monday, Feb. 12. The hunts are Saturday, April 21, and Sunday, April 22, and provide opportunities to access locations that may otherwise be closed to hunting. “We get volunteers from the National Wild Turkey Federation and this is the 16th year we’ve cooperated for these hunts,” Kurre said. “Over the years we’ve introduced more than 5,000 people to these hunting experiences. We also work with the Minnesota National Guard to get military adults and their families into turkey hunting.” Details about how to apply and costs to participate are available at mndnr.gov/turkeyhunt. A pre-hunt orientation is required and all participants will need to have a valid firearms safety certificate or its equivalent. Youth must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Overall participation in the hunts is restricted by the number of volunteers and private lands that are available. Anyone interested in providing turkey hunting land for the mentored youth hunts should contact the Keith Carlson, Save the Habitat Save the Hunt coordinator for the National Wild Turkey Federation in Minnesota at kcanoka@comcast.net.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Gov. Mark Dayton has proclaimed Jan. 20-28 as Snowmobile Safety Awareness Week in Minnesota. This an opportunity for the Department of Natural Resources, volunteer safety instructors, the Minnesota United Snowmobilers Association (MNUSA) and its 250 member snowmobile clubs to join together to recognize the importance of safe, responsible snowmobiling. “It’s a fun and exciting activity, but snowmobilers should always remember to make safety a top priority,” said Conservation Officer Bruce Lawrence, DNR recreational vehicle coordinator. “They should also always use common sense and keep a clear head when riding.” Here are some other key safety points: Snowmobiling and alcohol don’t mix – don’t drink and ride. Smart riders are safe riders – take a snowmobile safety training course. Always wear a helmet and adequate clothing. When night riding slow down – expect the unexpected. Know before the ride  – always check local trail and ice conditions. Cross with care. Know risks and be prepared – make every trip a round trip. One is the loneliest number – never ride alone. Ride safe, stay on the trail – respect private property. To legally ride a snowmobile in Minnesota, residents born after Dec. 31, 1976 need a valid snowmobile safety certificate. Options for both classroom and online classes can be found at http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/safety/vehicle/snowmobile/index.html People can find Minnesota snowmobiling events and activities on the MNUSA webpage: https://mnsnowmobiler.org/get-involved/mnusa/events.

      Lol! Smurfy  Its not as easy to identify areas like the old days the ice towns in Mertens bay and in front of Steils old house on cedar island aren't there like years of past but she's still the same chain that you grew up on. And IMO better than when we wee younger. 
    • Wanderer
      @Roscoe010 I wanted to head that way yesterday but my fishing partner didn’t have that kind of time.  If I get there this weekend, I’ll let you know. Or hopefully someone else knows and will reply.
