    Bucci is great at college hockey. Yea he is an east coast guy.
    Melrose can’t keep up and get a sentence out anymore.

    Bucci is good but he needs to tone it down 1 level and not get soo excited EVERYTIME his favorites touch the puck, I mean how many times was Lane Hutson “Dancing” tonight? Its sad how Melrose has declined mentally…

    Bucci and Melrose definitely a east coast bias but they do a decent enough job. Heck if it wasn’t for Bucci ESPN wouldn’t have any college hockey coverage

    Yeah expect Bucci to have some east coast bias so doesn’t bother me. He knows college hockey and the players.

    6-2 with 2 empty netters, and it wasn’t even that close lol. What a dominating performance, there was about a 30 second period where I thought the Gophers missed chances may come back to bite them, but they were skating down hill all game. Hopefully Michigan can take care of business for an all Big10 final.

    Long ago … Melrose used to despise college hockey. He has come around.

    1 more to go … Go Gophers.

    This Michigan and Qunnipiac game is very entertaining, should be a good championship game regardless of who pulls this one off.

    Luke Hughes is a special player, dude is puking on the bench and yet still out on the ice every other shift…

    Qunni is absolutely huge and an older team. Play such a better team game especially on D. Maturity.
    Let’s go Gophs.

    Portillo not gonna sleep well for awhile.

    Gotta give Quinni credit for defending well but M controlled the play all game.

    I hope Fantilli comes back and has a Kariya season

    Yeah don’t see it with Fantilli. most complete NHL player out of that freshman core for both U of M’s IMO.

    Yeah probably not unless the Coyotes draft him jester

    There hasn’t been a really good draft year rookie since Matthews/Laine and I wouldn’t want to come in with Bedard if I were him.

    Quinnipiac kind of reminds me of Mankato the last few seasons. A roster full of older, more developed players that emphasize defense first. Not very often do you see the overall 1 versus the overall 2 seed in the final.

    The Bobcats scouted Portillo prior to last night’s game and one area of weakness they saw was that he often did not hug the post when the puck was behind his net. They exploited that twice with two bank-in goals.

    Future Teammates

    They are both so dang fun to watch. If the Yotes ever get their crap together they have some serious draft capital and young kids. Fantilli is a big big dude but also sort of a douchebag. I cant remember what he did earlier this year, but he got ejected.

    He is a complete douchebag. Total showboat and cocky about it too. He’ll probably still win the hobey later tonight though.

    It was a fight after the whistle – can confirm he was a big douche during it

    Did you see when Cooley got his gamer… that was baaaad!

    I hope not, but with 2 teammates competing against each other for votes I am sure he will. Definitely a disservice to Knies and Cooley even though they are both deserving. Fan voting will totally be split. I am not sure how much weight that is on the award though.
    Good to see Motzko get COY.

    I think there is something wrong with Knies. He looks like he’s playing with an injury. Until the last empty netter last night, he hadn’t recorded a single point in the 3 NCAA tournament games. 19 goals in 3 games, and he found the scoreboard once for a meaningless empty netter assist. Something has to be limiting him physically.

    So you are talking about a goalie who has knocked the pipe off the moorings more than any goalie in history. Portillo was injured, that is what they exploited. Most times it took him quite a while to get up, he stayed down on the ice after the play left the zone a few times. But yeah he did not get back to the post but that is not a tendency across his career.

    I didn’t realize he was injured. If it was affecting his play so much, perhaps they should have gone to another goalie. Or maybe they thought he was still better than the other guy even if he was injured?

    Question, could not hear the TV. Why did they not count the 2nd recalled goal where the puck went over the goal line and the goalie pulled back out with his glove?

    They couldnt get an angle to clearly see the puck across the line. I am confident it was in because it was rolling on edge, but you just couldnt conclusively see it with his glove over it.

    That wasn’t a recalled goal, it wasn’t called a goal originally and there was no obvious video showing it completely over the goal line. That review was going whichever way it was called on the ice.
