Really? I mean it's obvious where your heart is, and thats fine... but if you had to lay down some of that hard earned cash of yours, what would you say then? I believe MN is better than SCSU by a fair amount, however I also believe in the "overly loud annoying 80's hairband music blarring over the speakers and they think it's cool factor" blush.gif going on up there.... therefore my prediction 3-3 tie and Gophers 4-2 for three points and a successful road trip.

I hear you Buzzsaw, but being an alum of both SCSU and the U of MN, I have to tell you that I would take the atmosphere of a game in St. Cloud over Mariucci. Okay, I know I am opening up a can of worms here, but it just kills me when I go to Mariucci and see so few students and many corporate seats left open. It is definitely a great rink/arena, but it just lacks that college feel sometimes.

Anyways, I better get out my Guns n' Roses CD to brush up on the lyrics for Saturday night. grin.gif

I can't disagree, mariucci arena is an older crowd, but not old people... just not a bunch of drunk college kids acting like caged animals... I digress. I personally would way rather go to a game at mariucci then the way overrated arena in St. Cloud.... just get seats at either end and you can also participate the chants without being an indignant drunken college kid.

I agree but I did enjoy my days as a drunken college kid. grin.gif

My feelings exactly! I would put Mariucci right behind NoDak for best arena in the area. (Sidebar, if you haven't been to NoDak, make the trip --it's worth the drive) I also get a kick out of the Goph's coordinated chants.

But the Marriucci experience is just different from the smaller rinks. Those ethanol induced chants are a big part of the college game. Like last weekend, "Fra-zee's Was-ted"

And back to original topic. Though close, I see the Goph's sweep. Maybe a little bad blood from the final five semi last year?

I have not been to the SCSU arena, I can say that going to Mariucci for many gopher fans is like going to Lambeau to watch a game for packer fans. I can say I have been to UND several times (not the new arena) and that is a great atmosphere as well. I remember watching someone from the maroon and gold skate around a dead gopher and scoring a goal up there it was great.

I think the Gophers will get out the brooms this weekend.

I think we’re losing sight of the most important thing here. Since I’m married to Jill… and she is going to the game in St. Cloud Saturday night… I have to miss my Saturday night pick-up game because I have to stay home to take care of Mr. Hockey 2023! Anyone up for babysitting in the Lakeville area Saturday night? I have a 56” HD TV with the Center Ice package and CSTV for you to watch while the boy sleeps. It’s a pretty sweet set-up! Anyone? Anyone?

Definitely one of the worst games the Gophs have skated all year. I thought they were pretty flat last weekend, but tonight was worse. St. Cloud definitely should have put it away.

Two things about tonight's game: gopher's were not moving to the puck. A lot of reaching for around and hooking. They got beat several times tonight standing around. They had trouble breaking out of their zone when they were standing around.

The other thing was mental mistakes. Just about every defensemen tonight was making errors including vanelli. Okposo's gaff at the blue line coughed up a goal, as did Vanelli's penalty behind the net, resulting in a power play goal. Briggs must have had a brain fart tonight, as he let in some soft goals. He was not playing angles well, and what was with that last goal? tuck that elbow in man!

Gophers need to pick up the pace tomorrow night. When they skate and move the puck around, they are unstoppable. The CC series was a fine example of how well the Gophers play when they skate and move.

tomorrow's gonna be rough at the NSC; gophers better bring their A-game and skate like they've got something to prove.

unfortunately it was me, and I was right frown.gif

At least the gophs pulled their tails out of their rears and saved face this game. If they wouldn't have stepped up in the third and OT it would have been ugly. The Huskies looked really good tonight though. After that skuller shot, Frazee got beat stone cold on that third goal. Must have stung...

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
