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.

Nice work. The lesser of two evils won. Lets see if your Mavericks can pull it off next week when they host UND smile

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.

    • Little late to the answers, but I switched over to NAP KILLZONE and could not be happier.  They are the cats meow.  I like them better than the Rage I was shooting before.  The pictures are from a doe I shot at 13 yards.  Needless to say she didn't go more than 30 yards before she piled up.
    • The whole reason behind getting a new bow is that my 17 year old son is now standing 6'3" and the little bear bow he has is too small for him.  He likes to bow hunt, but with sports and school activities he doesn't get out a ton, so i am going to crank down the poundage on my Elite and he wants to shoot that.  So Dad is in the market for a new bow.  I can't say a bad word about the Elite, its been a great bow for me.  I have always shot a double cam bow and was just looking for opinions about what other folks like.  Not sure if a solo cam will be smoother with the draw or not.  Soon as I have time, I want to get out and shoot some bows and see what I like.
    • Thanks MJ   It's nice for the picture and follow up video you catch a lot that gets missed after the picture.
    • i was just there on the 11th of Aug, yea i was way less then impressed with the cave. wont bother me none, but then again that wasthe first time in 5 years i've been in a cabelas.
    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota walleye fishing has been great using bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Anglers are being selective to fill limits with 16-18” fish as well as a few over 28 released. Most success has been in the mud, off of structure in 21-23 feet and 26-30 feet. The largest fish seem to come from South of Garden Island on crank-baits.   Canadian walleye are also most effectively targeted with bottom bouncers and spinners. Depth has not been as important as being at the bottom of a break line in the flat. Gold with chartreuse has been best as of late.  Musky activity has slowed from the prior weeks but expect it to ramp up with the full moon approaching. Perch have been schooled up on and around reefs topping out around 30 feet.   Water temps remain consistently in the low to mid 70’s.    Remember - fall is the time for trophy fish up at the NW Angle!   Until next week,   Sunset Lodge
    • It seems to be working😉
    • I've heard good things about the Browning's. 
    • Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?   I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO. 
    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
