One Minnesota squad won something...

Maybe I should’ve saw this coming from game one of the WCHA schedule as the U went into Amsoil Arena to take on the defending national champions called UMD. Wild prospect Erik Haula’s pass went off a UMD skate and into the net to tie the game 4-4 with 44 seconds and the extra attacker on the ice. Paul Rome and all bar patrons pumped their fists in the air that night at Brine’s in Stillwater as Nate Condon ended it in OT to get the U off to an opening road sweep of the Bulldogs.

Either way, congrats to the boys.

Seems like an eternity ago! The season is a true marathon; Winning the MacNaughton doesn't get the credit it deserves because the Broodmoor assures the spot in the NCAAs. But if you really think about it, the MacNaughton is a really special honor! These guys outghta be proud as punch for this achievement. I just hope it doesn't get lost in the disappointment if the season ends unceremoniously.

Go Gophers! A couple more trophies out there for the taking!
