The Gophers are heading about an hour NW this weekend for a HUGE showdown with those pesky Huskies. Gophers are ranked ahead of them, but trail in the conference standings. Really a chance for us to make up some serious ground.
Just got settled in at the National Hockey Center and the students are already rowdy. Just had a good "Golden Chokers" chant start up. Also had an SCSU student in a Gopher jersey get called a traitor by the whole section for about two minutes.
What a great environment for playing college hockey. This place is so small it's like playing in a tin can, making it really loud when the Gophers are in town.
