Looking forward to watching future Gophers Hudson Fasching & Vinni Lettieri play tonight. 2 of 6 Minnesota kids on the National Team roster. Looking at the lineup for the National team, they've got some big kids on their roster, including Fasching who is 6-2 214. It will be interesting to see how the Gophers play against Fasching & Lettieri too. Lucia indicated that it's "game on", when asked if he'd tell his players to go easy on the Gopher recruits.

It doesn't sound good after the first period. Are we just flat or what's the deal??

Go Gophers!!

Yeah, they were sloppy through the first period and a half. They kind of got a jump start when they got the 5 minute power play, but didn't get on the board until over 4:00 had gone by, and a 5 on 3 was at least 1:30 of that five minutes. Shibrowski has come up big in the 3rd, as his team has given up a few odd man chances and has had a hard time clearing the puck out from in front of their own net.

@Russostrib: Vinni Lettieri said "I just kept thinking about" playing for the #gophers during the game. "Experience I'll never forget."

Go Gophers!!
