'Toole Time

Because of the Binnyrus post on the USCHO forum, and the fact that I was bored for a few minutes....

The whole 'Toole Time' thing is very fitting, and definitely better than Toole Box that I've heard also

Happy Halloween

I almost forgot, Happy Halloween, dang its' COLD today

Individual Honors continue to come!

In what was relatively obvious, Sara O'Toole is the WCHA.com offensive player of the week. Her 6 points (4 goals 2 assists) in the UMD 6-0 win over SCSU made that a lock, in my mind.

While Kim Martin could have been the league's pick for rookie of the week, she instead received the Defensive Player of the Week for her 31 stops in that same Saturday game against SCSU.

The Rookie of the Week, btw, was Kelli Blankenship from the Gophers.

On blog entries where I've quoted a website, such as this entry quoting wcha.com you can click the title (there are 3 colored dots before the title signifying a link) and go to the website.

Bring on the Goofers

It's that time of year, the UMD Women head down to Ridder Arena this coming weekend to exterminate some rodents. Last year the teams split the 4 games 2 wins apiece, each winning 1 road and 1 home game.

The Gophers are coming off a loss to Ohio State University, while UMD's coming off the sweep of St. Cloud State.

I believe, that if UMD wins their game Friday night, they'll sweep the Gophers, winning Saturday as well.

UMD finishes sweep, O'Toole scores 4

Today, UMD finished the sweep of SCSU, with 5 minutes left in the game now UMD is up 6-0. Sara O'Toole has 4 goals as I type this. A much cleaner game than all of the descriptions/accounts from the Friday night game. Good to know that Lanzl's sitting up in the press box with teammates Amie Meyer and Samantha Hough (who it's mentioned had off-season knee surgery and isn't ready to play yet.)

Lanzl out of hospital

As per the pregame interview with Coach Miller, Michela Lanzl's out of the hospital, and in some pain, BUT they don't expect anything long term. O'Toole is taking Lanzl's spots today.

DNT Game Story

The DNT story from Friday is already up *click here*

The good news anyway:
Lanzl went into the boards early in the second period as well and suffered a leg injury. She missed a few shifts, but returned. Miller said Lanzl had head and neck pain but was able to move her limbs.

Obviously no word any further but the good news is she was able to move extremities.

Michela Lanzl taken to hospital

The game story from UMDBulldogs.com is online at http://www.umdbulldogs.com/womens/hockey/index.php?sect_rank=2&story_id=2794.

The low scoring game is likely attributed to the amount of penalties faced by both sides, and UMD having one of its top scoring threats, sophomore forward Michaela Lanzl, having to go to the hospital after hitting the boards.

There aren't any more details yet.. but hopefully there's more details in the News Tribune Saturday.

Dogs shutout SCSU 2-0

Same post as I made on USCHO.com since I was at the men's game and didn't hear details of the game besides what's on collegehockeystats.net

Riitta Schaublin got another shutout as the Dogs win 2-0. At the men's game they announced it was 1-0 going into the 3rd period.

Judging from the game stats, it was one heck of an UGLY hockey game. UMD took 12 penalties for 24 minutes and SCSU took 10 for 23. UMD finished the game shorthanded 5 on 3 but managed to get through that unscaved.

SCSU's Danielle Hirsch took a 5 minute cross checking major.. it's not listed if there's a Game DQ or not though.

Jill Sales got 1st star for her game winning goal in the 2nd period. Koizumi got 2nd star and Riitta's shutout on the road earned her the 3rd star.

Hopefully someone who may have been at the game has more information, especially as to the cross checking major.

Welcome Swedes

Since my sitemeter is showing that there are a *lot* of Swede's reading the hockey blog, welcome to the blog and hope ya enjoy reading...

I dont' know even a tiny bit of Swedish.. but using the Internet, I'll attempt to say:

Välkommen (3 words showed up for welcome?),och, åtnjuta (3 words for enjoy also?). I'm sure I did that wrong but if freedict.com is even somewhat close that would say welcome and enjoy.

SCSU's weekend press release

The weekend press release from SCSU is at *THIS LINK*. Once again it's a .pdf file so you need your pdf reader such as adobe acrobat. It is basically the information you'd find in a game program.

UMD Rouser(school song)

While it may be a bit obsessive, you can download the UMD Rouser .mp3 for your computer. The download(s) are available from this link http://www.d.umn.edu/~deaton/pepband/playlist/songs/umdrouser.htm

Since I am bored tonight, I'm attempting to embed the downloaded song into this post. It will play automatically if you have an mp3 browser plug-in. It's relatively short and by Sunday won't be on the front page of the blog by the end of the SCSU series :)

The Past and the Present

I was messing around on GOOGLE today and came across this picture from a website called Expressen.se While I don't speak or read the language of the magazing the picture of Maria Rooth and Kim Martin celebrating their Olympic Silver Medal expresses well, the past and future of UMD hockey.

UMD Heads to SCSU

The UMDBulldogs.com upcoming series preview is up on their website. SCSU is coming off a sweep of Ohio State.

WCHA.com "team notes"

The following is from WCHA.com's weekly recap section "Member team notes:"

Minnesota Duluth Bulldogs
The Bulldogs had five players with three points in the weekend sweep of Bemidji State ... junior forward Karine Demeule led UMD's offense over the weekend, scoring three goals ... senior forward Jessica Koizumi had a two-goal performance on the weekend while adding one assist ... freshman forward Emmanuelle Blais is proving her tremendous offensive power, notching two goals and an assist in two games against BSU to bring her to three goals, seven assists and 10 points on the season ... freshman forward Elin Holmlov tallied two assists in the series, helping prove that UMD's freshman class is packed with scoring threats ... all three of UMD's goalies saw action vs. Bemidji State ... senior Riitta Schaublin made 13 saves for the win last Friday and freshman Kim Martin stopped 14 shots in last Saturday's contest ... sophomore Amie Meyer split time in goal with both Schaublin and Martin during the series ... she stopped a total of six shots in her first two collegiate games

The FULL ARTICLE is available by clicking on 'FULL ARTICLE.'

While it's nothing new that hasn't been reported it's still newsworthy for the period between Tuesday and Thursday where there's little to talk about.

Next up for UMD is SCSU at the National Hockey Center, Friday night and Saturday afternoon.

News Tribune's Saturday game story

The Game Story is there. I didn't realize there were 877 fans at the game Saturday night. That's a little better than the average number of fans at the game(s).

Understatement of the weekend by Steve Sertich FROM the article:
``(We’re) about six goals behind UMD,” Sertich said as his team’s progress report. “We’ll get better each week. We’re not up with teams of this caliber yet.”

When a team gives up 12 goals in 2 games, yes Steve, that's 6 goals behind.

Dogs finish the SWEEP of BSU

UMD finished the sweep tonight 6-0 over BSU. Noemie Marin scored 2 more goals tonight and now has 8 goals on the season! Kim Martin and Amie Meyer combined on the shutout tonight.

UMD played much better for 60 minutes than Friday nights game. They got ahead by a bunch and kept playing hard throughout rather than letting up and being outplayed even while ahead.

DNT Game report

Dogs win 6-2, Freshmen remind us they're Freshmen tonight

Jessica Koizumi(2 goals tonight) scored on a dump in from the blue line 29 seconds into the game.. five-hole on Emily Brookshaw and the route was on.. or so we all thought. UMD finished the first period up 5-0 and it didn't seem like they could do anything wrong. Brookshaw looked really shaky in the first period, not just on the dump in that went under her. UMD outshot BSU 25-5 for the period 'enroute' to the 5-0 lead. While the game ended 6-2 I wouldn't call it a route because BSU turned their play up after the first.

From the start of the 2nd period, BSU pretty much controlled the game in my eyes. They only outscored UMD 2-1 for the rest of the game, and were still out shot 13-19, but behind Brookshaw's MUCH improved play they had UMD on their heels more than UMD had them on theirs.

Karine Demeule scored her first two goals of the season tonight, the second the most important as it ended BSU's run in the second period. It was also a *BLAST* from the face-off dot on a rebound.

The freshmen tonight.....*LOOKED* like freshmen. The passing wasn't nearly as crisp as last weekend against North Dakota. I am sure that *LAST SEASON* this would have turned into a nightmare and probably ended up 5-4 or maybe even a tie 5-5 rather than a 6-2 UMD win.

I think that right now, it's a good 'reality' check for the Freshmen, and much better to happen on a Friday night against BSU instead of a Saturday before a road trip. They'll be able to get everything on the right track before heading to St. Cloud (who beat OSU 5-4 tonight.)

Amie Meyer took over for Riitta Schaublin and faced 3 shots in 10:53 of play.

Elin Holmlov Article, News Tribune weekend preview

Today's DNT has a long Elin Holmlov article, comparing her to Maria Rooth and talking about a back injury that kept Holmlov out of the olympics.

THE DNT's weekend preview with BSU is HERE

The Bulldogs spent much of the last series on a penalty kill and are 32-of-33 this season. UMD’s power play is at 34.8 percent and combined, the units are the best in Division I hockey.

BSU's game preview for this weekend

Since most of the teams dont' really have threads on USCHO for them, I decided I might as well post the opponents weekend press release as well. BSU's release for this weekend's game is HERE!

This release is in .pdf format so make sure you have your .pdf reader like Adobe Acrobat updated. The strangest thing on this press release is
wLocation: Minnesota
Duluth is located in Duluth, Minn.
As Homer Simpson would say...

The one error on that press release is the link to the games.. the games are on 710 AM WDSM. As always, go to WARP RADIO and type WDSM into the call letters box on top. Then you can 'click to listen' on the WDSM page.

YouTube Hockey stuff

On a day when there's little more to talk about before a series (Thursdays) I decided to post a couple YouTube hockey videos.. they're not specifically women's hockey or anything but they'll be rather funny, or maybe a great play.. something along that line.

The first one is Japan VS Denmark, the Japanese player scores on his own goaltender.

THIS next one has 4 defensive turnovers and one umm.. mascot getting, well...

Here's a long almost 9 minute video of the Canadian women's gold medal team playing against the band Bare Naked Ladies (BNL). More funny than hockey.

Mike Hatch pledges support for new DECC Arena

Today's NEWS TRIBUNE has an excerpt Mike Hatch and Tim Pawlenty visit to duluth. The short article is for Hatch's full support of the new DECC arena being in the 2007 budget. From the article:

“They say they supported it. But when they had the chance, at the end of the session, they didn’t come through,’’ Hatch said after a media event on the current DECC hockey rink. “There was a chance to get it done last year and they didn’t do it.”

Team stats as of four games, via collegehockeystats.net

Dogs Finish the SWEEP of North Dakota

Today's game was a LOT better than yesterday, as far as the chippiness and ugly play goes. UMD won 5-0 and finished the weekend strong, AND got the "4th liners" into the game in the 3rd period.

After this weekend:

Jessica Koizumi got on the board with her first 2 goals of the season and now has 2 goals 6 assists on the season to lead the team in overall points.

Myriam Trepanier only scored 4 points (2g+2a) last season and already has 5 points with 2 goals 3 assists.

Saara Tuominen after 3 points last weekend, only had 1 assist this weekend but that's still 4 points on the season.

Noemie Marin has been burying the puck to start this season. She's already got 7 points on 6 goals and 1 assist.

Jamie Rasmussen was huge on defense on the weekend with 4 Sunday assists. Her family in the stands was also huge so to speak. Sunday though one of them mentioned one of the DECC ushers told them they had to leave their shirts down instead of displaying their UMD letters, or they'd be excused from the game. She along with Elin Holmlov and Trepanier on the powerplay are what UMD has been missing.

So far this season UMD's powerplay is 8 of 23, not counting the 3 of 7 against the Whitecaps. If this 35% powerplay can mantain through the season, this will be a much better end of the season result.

The penalty kill has only given up 1 goal on 33 for a 97% kill rate. This weekened against North Dakota the puck was in the Sioux side of the ice on many of those penalty kills. Hopefully against the league's better teams, they stay out of the box more.

A while back I mentioned an expectation of 4 shutouts in a row by UMD goaltenders. Well, now we've seen 2 of the 4 in the back to back shutouts of NoDak. Bring on BSU.

Dogs handle Sioux 4-0 in VERY physical game.

UMD won 4-0 at the DECC today in what was the most physical **NON** UMD/Minnesota women's hockey game I've ever seen. The referee lost control relatively early on and never really regained it. He seemed to be out of position the whole game and turning his head about the time stuff happened. I'm not being homer on this one, because *BOTH* teams got away with a ton of stuff. Chippy might be an understatement of how the game turned in the second period, mostly due to the way the game was called. If the linesmen had called some of the stuff behind the play it could have cleaned up some. This is a much different North Dakota team than I remember. The third period was relatively clean compared to the first two, though maybe that was because nothing was called.

There were 'roughing to the head' penalties and 'elbowing' penalties if that's an indication of the physical play.

Riitta Schaublin played her normal great game, even though she only had to deal with 18 shots. Noemie Marin scored 2 goals from relatively "point blank" during the game. Koizumi didn't score any goals, but had 3 assists on the 4 UMD goals.' Lanzl scored her first goal of the season to close the game out, a sweet double deke, first on the defenseman then on the goaltender.

Kim Martin's expected to start Sunday, as mentioned in the News Tribune article in the previous short post.

News Tribune Kim Martin article

First off tonight, the News Tribune ARTICLE about Kim Martin and some of Shannon Miller's ideas about goaltender rotation.

Great Mankato Series Comments left by Just_A_Fan

JustAFan-UMDW'sHcky said...

Hi… I made the 4 hr trip (one way) from beautiful northern Mn to hot windy southern Mn and it was worth the $$ in gas… UMD looked speedy & solid for most of the weekend… Friday night was a slow start – Mankato is much speedier this year than what I remember from last year – Maggie Fisher and Lindsay Macy having several breakaways- but they were also a lot more physical on Saturday, reminiscent of St Cloud.

On Friday, in the first period, UMD didn’t seem to have the speed/ energy they had in the first 10 mins against the Whitecaps, at least in the first period. But, UMD picked things up throughout the game, and Saturday they looked really impressive. The freshman forwards Blais, Tuominmen, and Holmlov were very impressive, as were the freshman defense Murray and Rasmussen.

The powerplay on Saturday seemed to really click, passes were crisp. The only negative I saw was how UMDs d-players would pinch in and Mankato would be able to get past for a breakaway. But maybe that’s because of who we have sitting in net? Both Riita and Kim looked good, and the goals Mankato got were due more to a break in UMD’s defense than anything else (my opinion)…

The only other comment I have is about the arena – All Seasons needs to get a shot clock, or their announcer needs to give some stats to the game…. I didn’t know the shots until I checked online once I was back in Duluth…

Looking forward to the games this weekend – should be lots of speed on the ice!


BAD Scheduling

Last night I was looking at the women's schedule thinking about plans to head down to Ridder Arena to watch the series against the Gophers. When I looked at the men's schedule the Gopher men are up here the same weekend the Bulldog women go down there. That's the dumbest scheduling I think I've ever seen. While they aren't neccessarily going to make a schedule that suits everyone, you'd think for attendance purposes they wouldn't put the schools against each other one on the road and one at home on the same weekend. If you're going to schedule UMD VS Minnesota men and women on the same weekend, do it smart and make it a double header at the DECC or Ridder/Mariucci.

The other thing to bitch :) about today is again the UMD/Minnesota women's series in Duluth is being held at Mars/Lakeview arena on the Duluth Marshall school campus instead of the DECC. They screwed this up a few years ago and had to play at MARS also, so this isn't exactly a new thing, but that arena doesn't make for a good setting for college hockey any more than Wessman Arena does.

DNT weekend recap article


There is the Duluth News Tribune "article" on Saturday's 2nd game, giving UMD the sweep of the weekend series.

UMD Sweeps Mankato, Up Next North Dakota

UMD finished the sweep today, the game is 6-1 in the middle of the 3rd period right now. Saara Tuominen stood out with 2 goals (so far) today and Myriam Trepanier has a goal and a couple assists. Riitta Schaublin wasn't tested much so far this game, as Martin really wasn't yesterday.

UMD hosts North Dakota next weekend at 3 pm both days. Anyone going to the men's game Saturday might as well leave early and make it a doubleheader. You can catch the women's game, then use the downtown area for dinner, then catch the men's game against U-Mass-Lowell. The Vikings are off next sunday also so the 3 pm hockey game would give people something to do next Sunday afternoon.

Dogs beat Mankato 3-1 Friday

I didn't get home from the high school football time soon enough to hear even the post-game show tonight so I had to wait until collegehockeystats.net posted the score to see UMD had won.

Basically copying my USCHO post now for this since I didn't get to listen to the game.

"UMD scored 2 powerplay goals in their 3-1 win over Mankato. Blais got a goal AND an assist to start off her college career in the right direction. Marin scored twice and Koizumi got 2 assists.

Tomorrow's game is on AM 970 WGEE, the Midwest Communications ESPN Radio affiliate because of college football on 610 and 710. Short turnaround of course, the game starts at 3:07 pm."

Just judging from the stats, the team is flying and it's great to see they stayed out of the penalty box for the most part.

WCHA.com article

Here's a sweet article by John Gilbert on WCHA.com's website. The article focuses on the Bulldog women's offseason, and some about the Whitecaps game.


Blitz-Linie translated from German to English is 'Lightning Line,' which I mentioned in the USCHO forum is a perfect fit for any line Michaela Lanzl is on from the story in the News Tribune today. "Shocking return" is the article's title and talks about how Lanzl was struck by lightning this summer at a BBQ. The article also mentions that she's, for now, classified as a senior by the NCAA because of her age (25.)

Because of football tonight, the game will be on the internet on WDSM's 710's link (posted in previous blog entry.)

Also on the news tribune the lines for tonight:


Sara O'Toole-Noemie Marin-Jessica Koizumi
Michaela Lanzl-Saara Tuominen-Emmanuelle Blais
Karine Demeule-Tawni Mattila-Jessica Hawkins
Erin Olson-Elin Holmlov-Kirsti Hakala

Jill Sales-Myriam Trepanier
Ashly Waggoner-Jaime Rasmussen
Suvi Vacker-Sarah Murray


Kim Martin, today; Riitta Schaublin, Saturday"

Dogs at Mankato

If anyone's taking the 3 hour trip down to Mankato for this weekend's opening series, OR if someone from Mankato might read this, you can send your thoughts on the weekend's series here to have it posted on the blog. You will be credited by either the name you give or the screen name you give to be posted. This is true for any series the Dogs play, even a home series, though I'll post about those myself also.

Hopefully this year I manage to get to a road series or two unlike previous years. Off subject: The Twins didn't play well and lost the playoff opener 3-2.

High Expectations

As posted on the USCHO Bulldogs Thread:

This year I'm looking forward to:

4 straight UMD shutouts of Opponents (looking at the beginning of the season)...
5 players (at least) with the oppurtunity to amass 30 (goals plus assists) points in a season...
A powerplay that actually punishes the opponent for taking dumb penalties...
More than 800 people at a game at the DECC (ok.. maybe THAT one's far fetched?)

I'd also say I'm looking forward to the NCAA tourney hosting at the DECC but it's too early (isn't it?)
