(Video) UND 4 DU 2

UND dominated DU tonight, it wasn't even close. UND head coach Dave Hakstol talks about playing on their toes, UND was on their toes and had DU on their heels all night long. This was the best effort that I have seen from UND this season. Clarke Saunders was simply amazing stopping 29-of-31 shots and was very good when he had to be. UND game into the game going 1-for-18 on the power...

UND Hockey: Clarke Saunders to take Center Stage.

Coming into the weekend, there is some concern. UND lost their starting goaltender Zane Gothberg to the dreaded lower lower-body injury and will miss him for 2-to-3 weeks.I know some of the fans are concerned about losing Gothberg, but Clarke Saudners hasn’t been all that bad in his career against Denver. What I am saying is don’t panic yet. Last season, Saunders played in 26...

UND HOCKEY: UMN vs. UND in an Outdoor Game?

Here’s something interesting from Charlie Walters daily column, yes I know, it’s Shooter. But Walters does make a good point. If Minnesota and Ohio State can make $350,000.00 for an outdoor game, I would imagine that could make more money with an attractive match-up like North Dakota versus Minnesota in an non-conference outdoor hockey game. Can you imagine the number of fans...

Oneida Indians to meet with U.N. over Redskins name

It's an interesting story, but the UN has no power in our country. I am not sure what they could possibly do in this situation? If the Washington Redskins don't have any intention of changing their names, I am not sure what the UN could or would do. The UN has no power to compel people in the USA to do anything.  Thoughts? Erik Bradly, USA Today -- The Oneida Indian Nation is...

UND vs. DU Time to renew the rivalry with our old friends

Good times, I think Kyle Radke is the only UND player that I can remember getting into two fights in one game. I think that's unprecedented. UND and Denver this weekend and if you have DirecTV, you will be able to see both games. My question, is Todd Anderson going to ref the games this weekend. Just for the record, UND is 8-3-1 against the Denver no-names in the last 11 games.Friday’s...

Richard Sherman on hockey

I thought this was interesting. Barry Petchesky, Grantland -- (Richard) Sherman then referenced the Flames-Canucks line brawl on Saturday:"There was a hockey game where they didn't even play hockey, they just threw the puck aside and started fighting. I saw that, and said, 'Oh man, I'm the thug? What's going on here?'"

Tortorella and Hartley have a history

Here's a good read that kind of puts the John Tortorella and Bob Hartley incident into perspective. Apparently, the two guys have a history going back to the AHL. I thought I would share it with you.

Toronto Star -- Cherry then offered stern advice to the 24-year-old before he heads to Sochi for the Winter Olympics. “Don’t give (the opposition) ammunition,” Cherry said. “Subban had...
