Check out @UNDSID's tweet.

I think this tweet is well said. Hockey players are a special breed. I just hope we don't have a bunch of sick and banged up hockey players this week when the rested UMD Bull Dogs come to town.

Monique Lamoureux WCHA Defensive player of the week.

WCHA Defensive Player of the Week

MADISON, Wis. – For the second straight time, the University of North Dakota’s Monique Lamoureux has been named the WCHA Women’s Defensive Player of the Week, this time for her two-way contributions in a two-game league sweep over visiting Minnesota Duluth over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Lamoureux was named WCHA co-Defensive Player of the Week on Nov. 20.

A senior from Grand Forks, N.D., Lamoureux was a force at both ends of the ice against the visiting Bulldogs, contributing five goals – including both game-winners – and helping lead a strong defensive effort that held UMD to just one power-play goal in 10 series opportunities and saw her block six shots. In North Dakota’s 4-3 (ot) win last Friday (Nov. 23), Lamoureux scored a pair of goals, including the winner at 3:08 of the extra session, had eight shots on goal and earned the First Star of the Game award. She followed up that effort on Saturday (Nov. 24) with a three-goal hat trick in a 5-2 UND triumph, again notching the game-winner, putting six more shots on goal and again being named the First Star.

Through 14 games this season for No. 8-ranked UND (9-5-0), Lamoureux has contributed 19 points (9g, 10a) to up her collegiate career totals to 219 points on 96 goals and 123 assists in 124 games.

Also nominated: Ivana Bilic, D, BSU; Amanda Leveille, G, UM; Audrey Hanmer, D, SCSU; Saige Pacholok, D, UW.

Monique Lamoureux - WCHA Defensive Player of the Week

A pair of veteran defensemen – Megan Bozek of the University of Minnesota and Monique Lamoureux of the University of North Dakota – have been named the WCHA Women's co-Defensive Players of the Week for Nov. 20. 

Lamoureux, a senior from Grand Forks, N.D., led the North Dakota defense with a four-point weekend in two WCHA victories over Bemidji State on Nov. 17-18. She topped the team with a +7 plus/minus rating, placed nine shots on goal, and scored three goals, including a power-play tally, and one assist in the 3-1 and 7-3 victories at BSU. She was named the Second Star of the Game last Sunday and now has collegiate career totals of 91 goals, 123 assists and 214 points in 122 games played.

Also nominated: Jessica Wong, D; UMD; Kari Schmitt, D, OSU.

Shot charts UMD and UND game 2

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?

UND and UMD dust up...

Oh no, they have done it again... I am sure we will hear from the fans to the south about the mean goon's from North Dakota and how they like to goon it up and get rough with their guests.

UND beats UMD in Overtime 4-3

Grand Forks, ND – The University of North Dakota has been a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde team through nine games of the 2012-13 season. UND has a 4-0-1 record on Friday Nights and a less than impressive record of 0-3-1 record on Saturday Night’s.

Tonight, UND improved that record on Saturdays to 1-3-1 with a 4-3 overtime win.

This was the first win for UND in overtime since March 1, 2009 when Darcy Zajac scored in overtime to beat Colorado College 4-3.

If last night’s game wasn’t wild enough for you; tonight’s game didn’t disappoint either.

Tonight’s game was like a 10 round heavy weight title fight where neither fighter was able to put the other away until the end of the fight.

During the opening five minutes of the first period, it looked like the game was going to be a track meet where strong goalie and defensive play was optional.

UMD senior forward Jake Hendrickson scored his first goal of the year and before the public address announcer could announce UMD’s he first goal – UND senior forward Danny Kristo was burying the puck in the Duluth goal for his 5th goal of the year and his third goal on the weekend.

Kristo would finish the weekend with three goals and two assist for five points.

But we weren’t done yet; UMD would score again 32 seconds later with a goal from UMD senior forward Mike Seidel. If you’re bad at math – like I am – that’s 3 goals in forty five seconds.

UND would go into the first intermission down 3-1 and the easy choice would have been to pull the freshman goalie Zane Gothberg  and go with the veteran junior goalie Clarke Saunders but head coach Dave Hakstol stuck with his freshman goalie Gothberg and it proved to be the right move, as Gothberg would settle down and stop 28 of 31 shots to improve his record to 2-1-0.

Hakstol was asked if he had considered pulling the young goaltender after the first period.

“You know… the goals that were scored on if you really evaluate it – it’s hard to fault our goaltender,” Hakstol said. "I know the second one kind of took the wind out of the building a little bit but it was a tip play in front – yeah maybe you would like to see a goaltender down and big and have that – but it was tipped directly in front of him down between his legs. So, there were three tough plays for him – he battled through that the remainder of that period – he made some good saves through the remainder of the period and obviously settled in the rest of the game.”

Tonight, UND head coach Dave Hakstol moved sophomore forward Mark MacMilan up to the top line with Danny Kristo and Corbin Knight.

That move would pay off as MacMilan would score the equalizer 05:53 mark of the third period and then would get the game winning goal 04:26 mark of overtime to ice the win for UND.

“They made some plays,” Hakstol said. “Chemistry is hard to explain. They showed that they had a little bit tonight. The plays that they made – the goals that they scored – they were good solid hockey plays, Hakstol said. They didn’t cheat for any of their offense tonight; they made a lot of good plays that resulted in some good positive results. I thought that they’re the ones that are on the score sheet the most, but I thought we had a good four line effort tonight. Were everybody grabbed hold of the rope and did a little bit and resulted in a good win for our team.”

After the game the sophomore forward looked exhausted but seemed to savored moment as he described the game winning goal.

“I don’t really know what happened, MacMilan said. Dan got the puck right around at the top of the circle and it kind of opened up. Dan made a great play to me and I just tried to get it off as quick as I could and it just happened to go in.

Danny Kristo described what he saw on the game winning goal.

“Just a chip in,” Kristo said.  “Just kind of read the play to the Duluth d – rimmed it – beat the guy to the puck and luckily beat the guy off of the wall. Originally, looked shot then I saw Mark out of the corner of my eye and he was opened up for a one-timer so just tried to make a good pass and it went through and he buried it.
Next weekend, North Dakota travels to South Bend, Indiana to play the Notre Dame FIghting Irish in a two game series.
