And no we have to deal with Wisconsin with a real coach in the future. The job is only going to get tougher, crap. Crappy goal tending

Unfortunately, that's been characteristic of this team the last few years. We take a game or a period off too often. We were 20 minutes from a title, and for some reason instead of giving it everything we had, we decided to try to sleep walk through the third period.

Congrats to Quinnpiac.

Along with the inability to win a face-off and Motzko making the decision to not play the 3rd period cost the Gophers.

Motzko deserved to lose.
Another Coyle hire.

That is on the head coach.

It's not that they took the third period off.....it's just that they made almost no effort to score. Just nursed that one goal lead and let Quinnipiac shoot over and over. Just a shameful way to lose that game.

Another season down the drain. That top line is gone, Close is gone, half the defense will leave.

Close is not gone, he has another year to play. If this game fought Cooley and Snuggy one thing it’s that they are physically not ready to play against older players. Cooley was a no factor tonight and Snuggy was only good on the power play in the first period.

I don’t see Close coming back as that much of a positive.

WTF were the defenseman after the faceoff?

Letting an opponent get behind means you were out of position.

Why did Jaxon Nelson have to try to do the defenseman job?

Utterly embarrassing.
