I would give the Gopher defensemen a C- tonight. This game could have went either way. Time to wake up boys and finish games.

The Gophs "D" has to tie up the opponents sticks around the paint and put bodies on those forwards. The Gophs have to be more physical with a smaller team like UMD. The Gophs played just good enough to win and that won't cut it in the playoffs against better teams. By the way UMD isn't that bad a team. The Gophs finally woke up in the 3rd period but need to play a better all around game for three periods to win tonight.

Watched UMD lose and tie last weekend at BSU. They looked overmatched in that series. The gophers must sweep this weekend for any chance to repeat as champions.

Adam Wilcox is proving to be human. The last month or so he has given up some goals that he would have made the save earlier in the season. There is always a stretch in the game where the Gophers defense are just standing around watching the other team. It is this stretch of time where the Gophers potentially lose the game. I find it interesting that every goalie the Gophers face seem to step up their game and the Gophers struggle to score. Outshooting teams by a 2 to 1 margin would lead someone believe the Gophs will win the game. Bjugstad, Haula, Rau and Schmidt need to double their input in this final stretch if the Gophs expect to win the natl championship
