So much better tonight than they were through the first two games of the tournament. No over-passing or getting cute with the puck. Making excellent reads on offense and winning plenty of puck-battles. The guys are locked in.
It's bigger than an NHL sized rink, but they have been pretty good on NHL sized rinks, too.They can beat absolutely anyone. If they keep playing like this, North Dakota and Co. better watch out. I don't think I've ever seen the Gophers look this fast and precise on an NHL sized rink. They usually look congested and out of sync. Like MUGopher said, this is fun.
Gophers had three games in a row including two in overtime. Badgers just played two with one over time game. Personally I believe the Gophers were tiring a bit in the third. Did get a little tough watching them come back though. Yes to the NCAA tournament!Never imagined the Badgers coming back to make that a game at the end. On to the NCAAs!
