Gophers win narrowly over Omaha

-Not super surprised at the level of competition Omaha offered

-Resiliency coming back from 1-0 and 2-1 in the third period

-Get past them, much tougher challenge against BU

Gophers can’t capitalize and end the season against BU

-Hot start from birthday boy Jaxon Nelson

-Old guy line buzzing, but needed more from the depth

-BU was incredible at blocking shots from just about everywhere

-A few squeaker goals given up proved to be very significant, if you think about it before the empty netters

-A few big chances whiffed on late, Brodzinski one-timer, fan on Lamb rebound shot in close

-The small differences between a very good and great team

Identity of 2023-24 team

-What do you think final word is on this team?

-Depth key, but needed to come in clutch and have the gamebreakers emerge at the right time, and didn’t

So much change

-Snuggerud coming back? Oliver Moore? Pitlick dark horse to leave?

-Close, Nelson, Brodzinski, Fish, Koster, Nevers, all gone.

-Another freshman class like those older guys coming in to be a young team

-The Portal?

-Goaltending big question mark.

Frozen Four in St. Paul

-Looking forward to the most?

-Still more college hockey for nations best in St. Paul
