Sioux/Gopher Week

Do you remember….

Thomas Vanek over Zach Parise for WCHA Rookie of the Year

Robbie Bina’s 180 foot goal

Neal Broten’s sprawling goal in the ’79 title game and Blake Wheeler’s Neal Broten impression for the overtime winner at the Final Five

Chris Porter’s overtime winner at the 2007 West Regional

Joe Finley attempting to pull Blake Wheeler out of the handshake line

Evan Trupp’s dramatic mid-air overtime winner at Mariucci

Former coaches Dean Blais and Doug Woog playing bubble hockey to open a series in Grand Forks

The scrums and scraps and cheap shots (both ways), Judy’s and Blarney’s, Dave Hakstol’s favorite finger, and a host of other memories add up to this: two great programs, two great traditions, and two great games coming up this weekend.

I’d like to hear what you remember. What are your favorite memories and traditions from Sioux/Gopher week? Which games stand out to you? Which games would you like to forget? Feel free to add your comments here as we count down the days to Sioux/Gopher hockey.

Check back on Thursday for a complete preview of this weekend’s series.
