    Ha! Try finding other media outlets to defend UW, of course the Madison paper will defend their badgers

    • Go back and watch the video, the Badger goalie was taking out by the MTU defenseman.

        I was at the game, the Wisconsin goalie was wandering behind the net in OT – their player skated into their own goalie.  It was a good goal.  By the way, Wisconsin fans at the game were a bunch of idiots – getting out of their seats during play – we wait until a stoppage in play as not to interfere with other fans views.  Go Huskies!

          I am a badger fan and have season tickets.  it sucks they lost but i agree with Gary.  Badger fans do it at home too.  It is so annoying for them to walk through during the gameplay.  We even have signs outside the entrance to each tunnel that says “Tow wiat till stoppage”  i guess since we are the biggest drinking state, they cant read it.

            just watched the video too.  That could have went either way.  If it would have happened to MTU than they would have complained and the badgers would have said no penalty.  Some penalties(like this)  suck because one person is not going to like it.  It was a 50-50 call and unfortunately the ref made it 51-49 MTU.  Oh well i think the badgers are doing really well this year considering they are so young especially in the goalie area.

            Lets go bucky.

          • Gary, go back and watch the video, the MTU forwards plows Ramage into his goalie, that’s interference and the goal shouldn’t have counted. I am Badger fan by any stretch of the imagination but that was a brutal call.

          whaa, whaa, whaa.  OMG, standing up during a hockey game…..before the whistle blows to stop play?  What has this world come to?  LOL….you can’t be serious..??  Sorry Gary, that is the weakest post I have ever seen on here…lol…but amusing.  At UND we don’t sit down unless the beer vendor needs to pass by…lol..j/k…:)  Come on, get up off your duff….this is college hockey buddy….:)

        I saw it in person and watched the video a number of times.  Ramage collides with Pietila and falls into the goalie Peterson, who was horribly out of position!  Definitely not a check!

    Gents, that trend wasn’t lost on me either — except that I saw it as victory for two CCHA teams rather than future WCHA teams.  :-D

    Interested to see what the young Gophers will do this season.

      If two players are going for the puck and collide, is that automatically considered to be a check because one falls down.  Pietila never put a shoulder into Ramage, he didn’t step into Ramage, and he most certainly didn’t make any contact with Peterson.  Bottom line is Peterson put himself into a vulnerable position and Tech simply outplayed Wisconsin!

    Could Eaves cry about it anymore?

    • JamesDee

      I cant wait till Eaves makes a return trip to Houghton for the WCHA playoffs.

    Go New WCHA!  What “Super League?” :)

    Let me get this straight, a future Big Ten Hockey school that has more than likely had more calls go their way though nepotism is complaining because the opposite happened once? Grow up. Good riddance.

    friday’s score was 2-1. saturday was 3-2.  Article says both nights were 3-2

    • Brian

      Thanks for catching that. The error has now been corrected.

  • WCHA fan

    Goon, incidental contact with the goalie is fair game while he is out of the net. Despite that, the Wisconsin d-man hit his own goalie.
    The Tech forechecker was battling for the puck, engaged the Wisconsin D-man, the Wisconsin D turned and ran into his own goalie.  Not a brutal call, just a bad situation to get stuck in during the overtime for the Badgers.
