The Gophers led well into the second period, until the Colorado Tigers clawed back by scoring two goals. The Tigers were sorely mistaken they had a chance against the Gophers, when Cade Fairchild scored yet another goal with a little of three minutes remaining in the game. The Gophers also out shot the Tigers 42-26 definitely earning the win. Minnesota is now only three points away from Colorado College’s fifth place ranking in the WCHA and, with any luck, will make the first-round home series in the upcoming league playoffs. Make sure to come cheer on your favorite Gopher at the next game!

This game between the Gophers and Badgers will be the first college hockey game played at the Target Center since the WCHA Final Five in 2000. These two teams used to play games regularly at the Target center between 1994 to 1998. There were five total games in that time span and the Golden Gophers won all of them. Over a decade later, the Gophers will have their chance to continue the legacy of kicking some major Badger butt!

Our Gophers don't only have skills on the court, but in the classroom as well. Katie Ohm, of the Gopher Women's basketball team, has been accepted into prestigious Mayo PT program. The May Clinic in Rochester, MN is one of the most respected hospitals in the world. With 350,000 patients treated yearly and major research on diseases, the hospital also has a teaching program with a 100 percent job placement rate. With only a 28 percent acceptance rate, the Mayor PT program is highly competitive. Congratulations Katie!

Paul Martin, a New Jersey Devils player and Golden Gophers alum, will miss out on the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver due to injury. Martin was hurt during a game against Pittsburgh in October, and was on the road to recovering before the Olympics began, but now needs surgery when his fracture didn't completely heal. Paul Martin will be in a cast for the next two weeks but the US plays Switzerland beginning February 16th. This is really difficult for Martin, since it would have been his first Olympic game. I send my prayers to Martin and maybe we'll get to see him the next time around!

The Minnesota Gopher baseball team has released its schedule for the 2010 season. They will be battling it out against one-nonconference team that went to NCAA Super Regionals last year and four of their own conference teams that were apart of the NCAA Regionals last year. This shall make for an interesting season, so let’s hope they can keep their record as high as last season.
The first game of the season includes the Pro-Alumni game this Saturday! I am so pumped for the Gopher baseball season to get under way. The first actual Gopher game will be against
P.S. As I said yesterday, the
