This week the UND Woman’s hockey team plays against the top ranked Minnesota Golden Gophers at the Ralph Englestad Arena. Game times for Saturday and Sunday is 2:07 PM CT. On Saturday it's "Fill the Bowl and tickets to the game are $1.00 and if you have a UND Champions Card you can get a free ticket to get into the game.
UND Women's Hockey head coach Brian Idalski on playing the top rated Minnesota Gophers.
“They’re [Minnesota] averaging just under seven goals per game,” Idalski said. “Their power play has scored 17 goals and clicking at 40 percent, so I would say that things are going really well for them. Defensively they’re just as solid if not better. [Noora] Ratty has four shutout in seven starts and her save percentage is close to 98%, so there is no weakness, their d-corps is really strong they have given up three goals all season long. It will be fun.”
UND Women’s head coach Brian Idalski on the status of his star forward Michelle Karvinen who has missed all six games that UND has played in this season with an injury.
“She looks good, Idalski said. "She skated well and she is progressing well and she will be a game time decision.”
Senior forward Captain Jocelyn Lamoureux was asked about playing the Minnesota Gophers and if there is a little extra incentive playing against the Gophers.
“It’s exciting to always play them especially with my history, but you have to approach it like any other series, Lamoureux said. “We have to stay even keel and not let our emotions get the best of us the last series and we get to play them here and we’re excited.”
The past few seasons the amount of penalties that UND takes has been a something that UND has been concerned about. Senior Jocelyn Lamoureux was also asked about her if her team is focused on eliminating penalties this week.
“I don’t know if it’s the topic this week in the practice, Lamoureux said. “But we know we need to that we need to stay out of the penalty box more and we can’t take as many penalties as we have been and that seem to be a common theme the last couple of years the amount of penalties our team takes its starts with Monique [Lamoureux] and I and the seniors down... “
Senior defenseman Jordan Slavin was injured last season and only was able to play in 14 games. Last season, Slavin missed both series against the Minnesota Gophers.
“It’s been fun; it’s been a lot of fun just being back out there with the girls and being able to play,” Slavin said. “Once you like... don’t have something and then you get it back it’s been an unbelievable experience.”
Slavin was asked if she feels like is back to full strength.
Yeah I do, I feel really good, my edges feel great and my knees aren’t giving men any problems this time around.
Slavin also had this to say about getting a chance to play against the top ranked Minnesota Gophers after not playing in any of the series last year against the Gophers because of injury.
"I didn’t get to play them at all last year, Slavin said. "It’s more fun than any series that I think we play during the year. Just the intensity is up, the speed is up, everything is sharp, the atmosphere is fun, I am excited."
