Friday College hockey links (Fighting Sioux)

Game day is almost here we are about 6 hours from the drop of the first puck. The hated Golden Gophers are coming to the Ralph and we can expect the Gophers to give up a fight. Also, this is the last chance for Gophers fans to watch their team before the Sioux send them off to the golf courses.

In addition, it's a sweet moment for Sioux fans, because this is the last time we will seen Gopher Hacks; Brad "the Hack" Schack, Tony "dad can I be captain" Lucia, Ryan "I am a hack too" Flynn and Mike "Jersey Pop" Carmin. I think of all the senior classes of the Gophers I think I despise this one the most. As an opposition fan I think this is a group of players I depise the most. There are no classy players like former Gophers Thomas Vanek or Jordan Leopold.

Check out Don Lucia and Paul Allen on KFAN. Lucia is on with PA at the end of the show.

Patrick C. Miller of the Boards Room has a great blog post.

Here is Ryan Cardinals appearance on KFAN this morning.

Dave Hakstol the coach of the Fighting Sioux was on yesterday with Paul Allen.

This is Gopher beat writers blog apparently Roman Augustoviz thinks the Gophers are going to win in three games. I think he is living in denial.
The Gophers have been an inconsistent bunch this season. Lethargic, disinterested in some games, looking outmatched.

But in others, they seem to be a team capable of beating anyone. If they bring their A game -- and what better time to do it -- they will shock the world, OK shock Grand Forks -- and advance to the Final Five.
