Tap of the stick to @statsoncrack ... This past weekend senior forward Corbin Knight had another stellar night going 20-12 and 38-23 on the weekend in the faceoff circle. Freshman Rocco Grimaldi was also pretty good in the faceoff dot as well going 24-17 on the weekend.
After last night’s game where both teams combined for 66 minutes in penalties, UMD moved from second to first over-all in penalty minutes. North Dakota jumped from 48th over-all to 31st.
Last night former UND goalie Brad Eidsness was the voice of reason when he posted this on the on-line game chat. I have met a lot of athletes over the years and Brad is one of the smartest that I have ever met. Eids also comes off as one of the most level head of people too. When most of us were ready for Sanders to come in and relieve Gothberg Brad posted this.
“I think a dose of patience is needed all with both the team and Gothberg. With a win tonight the team would have a better start (5-3-2) then the 2010-11 team. This is Gothberg's 3rd Career start. He is going to get more comfortable with time. He as the tools and will put it together. In order to do that however he must play meaningful minutes.”
This weekend UND Hockey travels to South Bend, Indiana to play the Fighting Irish. You can check this page this week. When UMD played Notre Dame in hockey back in October they had an on-line broadcast that was really high quality. You can find that web page at this link [Click to view]
It will be interesting to see if their on-line broadcast can take thousands of UND hockey fans logging on to see their favorite team play hockey. Only time will tell right?
