UMD came out slow again and was never able to really gain any momentum, dropping the second game of the series 2-0 to Minnesota. UMD was 0-10 on the power play which will not work against the best teams in the league. UMD's team speed didn't seem to be there at all tonight.
Jocelyne Lamoureux and her sister Monique pretty much dominated UMD all weekend, and the duo each scored a goal tonight and assisted on the others' goal. In 4 Gopher games this season they have 11 points (3 goals 8 assists) between them. The pre-season voters may want to re-think their pre-season rookie of the year pick.
Elin Holmlov didn't play tonight, most likely due to her recurring back problems.
I wanted to come up with something good out of the weekend's series, but right now I'm not sure what the Dogs might have done right.
Next up, St. Cloud State, who just were swept by North Dakota, at the National Hockey Center 2 PM Friday and 5 pm Saturday.
