BACK TO BACK TO BACK BABY!!!!!!
Might make the trek to Orono soon. It has been a long time since Maine hockey generated any buzz.
#Michigan State Spartans
Hey, you guys fucking suck.
Penn State has been ass for weeks and somehow not dropped out of the top ten.
3-1 Sconnie currently
Minnesota - ND going to OT.
Gophers pick up 2 pts with a shoot out victory. Tied with PSU for 1st for the time being (with 1 additional game remaining on the schedule).
Edit: PSU lost so Minnesota and PSU are tied in points and Minnesota has 2 more games to play.
Penn State basketball is out-performing hockey.
What a time to be alive.
Fuck the B1G, I want back in.
Few weeks to go, but teams are starting to lock themselves in to the tournament and in some cases, into their seeds as well.
Teams that are 100% in the tournament
1.University of North Dakota-98% chance to be #1 overall
2.Minnesota St.-Mankato-77% chance to be #2 overall.
3.Cornell-69% chance to be #3 overall
4.University of Minnesota-Duluth-likely seeded 4 to 6
5.Denver-likely seeded 4 to 7
Almost there. Would take a collapse and several upsets in conference tournaments to not be in the field.
6.Boston College-likely be seeded 4 to 8
7.Clarkson-likely to be seeded 5 to 9
Sitting in a pretty comfortable spot. would need to finish poorly and have some conference tournament upsets to miss out.
8. Massachusetts-likely between 6 and 11
9. Arizona State-likely between 7 and 12
10. Northeastern-likely between 6 and 13
11. Penn State-likely between 7 and 14
AIC, Sacred Heart, or RIT will get one spot
Which leaves 4 spots available
Bemidji State-67% likelihood to make it...in if season ended today
Ohio State-56%--in if season ended today
Maine-44%--in if season ended today
Minnesota-46%--in as B10 champ if season ended today
Mass-Lowell-36%--1st team on bubble currently
(Michigan schools play today)
How will the PSU series impact the Gophers PWR?
UM been arguably the best team in B1G in 2020.
Impressive. Since Jan 1, Michigan 8-1-1 (SOW), Minnesota 7-2-1 (SOW). If you go back one additional week the Gophers have a Mariucci Classic Championship with a win over SCSU and Michigan has a runner-up in the Great Lakes Invitational. There is a fair chance the B1G title is at stake in the last weekend when Michigan comes to Dinkytown.
Good thing we started 0-6-1 in conference!
I'm just going to leave this here. https://www.espn.com/nhl/story/_/id...ed-heat-check-center-american-hockey-universe
Is there a center of the center of the hockey universe?
Consider this: USA Hockey says that the Twin Cities market pulled 10,922 of its total participants in 2018-19 from a region that includes Bloomington (estimated population 85,934), Eden Prairie (64,952) and a little, rather wealthy place ($99,295 median household income, per the U.S. Census Bureau) called Edina (54,791).
No one has captured more Minnesota Tier 1 boys' state hockey championships than Edina, with 13. They also lost three times in the title game, and finished third three times. Edina also has won the Class AA girls' hockey title for three straight seasons. Among the notable Edina High School alumni: Anders Lee and Kieffer Bellows of the New York Islanders; former Montreal Canadiens player Bill Nyrop; former NHL player Paul Ranheim; and former NHL executive Brian Burke.
"In the Twin Cities, it might be Edina," said Tom Chorske, a Minneapolis-born former NHL player who's now an analyst for Fox Sports North. "They win a lot at youth level and produce a lot of college players. A lot of Wild players live in Edina and their little kids are playing there."
So there you have it: Edina, Minnesota. The center of the center of the hockey universe in the United States. ...Edina also has 6 players on the current Gopher roster and perhaps its most famous alum
