Haven't seen a Mavs game since I graduated. How are they doing this year? The Gophers always seemed to have our number. Hopefully that's changing.

Any predictions? I'll say its a split. I can't tell how good the Gophs are this year. Are they still sharing goaltending duties?

The Gophers always seemed to have our number.

Lets hope the tradition continues! The gophers seem to play one great game and one terrible game a weekend so a split will probably happen but if Lucia wants to keep his job and if we want to be any kind of contender this year we have to sweep this series.

Good...I am a Maverick at heart. The Gophers are what got me into hockey when I was 3 years old and I have played ever since, but I went to school at MSU so I gotta root for them.

Fun game to watch last night. Mavericks executed a great game plan.

I was also pleased to see it in HD on FSN. Is this their first game like that, or have they had others? I'm hoping to watch the Dogs on Friday in HD too, but will be at the game on Saturday.

I thought Kangas looked okay. Their blue liners were leaving a lot of pucks in front of the net uncontested, especially at the end. They also seemed to have issues carrying it out of the zone.

I think the maroon and gold will have a little more focus and fire tonight.

Kangas looked terrible on that 3rd goal by the Mavs. He had no idea the puck went through, while the Mavs player just slid it past him.

I also started out watching the Gophers, but went to MNSU, so I had to cheer for the Mavs too.

Kangas made a few really good saves, but the rest of the game he looked pretty bad. he just looks lost out there. I dont know how the gohpers can miss the net so much. 2 times our guy was alone in front of the net. NOt a breakaway but literally standing in front of the goalie with the puck. Neither time did we even hit the net. Their power play is absolutely embarrassing. I better not see Lucia or any of the coaching staff behind the bench next year. 5 on 3 taking shots from the point that had no chance of doing anything. Terrible, all we did was take bad shots on all 4 powerplays.

I don't understand why Kent Patterson isn't there man in net. His numbers win lost record is far better than Kangas. Watch Patterson starts tonight and the Gophers win.

Gophers are getting out coached. When you get 50 shots on net and dont win something is wrong. I bet we had another 30 blocked. we make no adjustments week by week. Just a flat team. Granted we were a little snake bit by the goalie, but you have to be able to score. Terrible powerplay again. It reminded me of a Peewee team. first person to get the puck shoots. Doesnt matter if there is a screen or anything. Just shoot, terrible plan. Even Gorg was left wondering what the gophs were thinking.

Side note, I am not sure if I have seen a 4 on 4 goal for the Gophers since Lucia took over.

Gophs are a decent team, coaching is killing them. I swear I see players getting worse already. At least get rid of coach Hill and whoever does the power play.

Remember years ago, 4 on 4 was almost like a power play for us.

Way to take it to us Mavs, congrats on the sweep.

    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
