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?

I wrote earlier, that UND freshman forward Rocco Grimaldi was checked into the boards by UMD forward Justin Crandall. [Click to view video] There was no call on the play; I think that’s the wrong call, but not surprising based on who was reffing this game. Grimaldi was in a vulnerable position and Crandall drove him into the boards while he was facing the boards. Luckily Grmialdi...

Last night, was an interesting night of college hockey in the WCHA, to say the least. Three out of four games went to overtime with the fourth game coming close.
Two of the three games ended in a tie. Bemidji State squandered a 4-1 lead and lost 5-4 in overtime to the Michigan Tech Huskies. Here's what the Beavers head coach Tom Serratore had to say about last night's...
