Vanek Fiddles (with UNH's defense) While Dinkytown Burns

Freshman Thomas Vanek proved yet again to be the definition of clutch as his patient, masterful third period goal broke a 1-1 tie and propelled the Gophers to a 5-1 win and their second straight NCAA hockey championship last night in Buffalo.

And despite assurances that there wouldn't be a repeat of last year's riot, students in Dinkytown (a neighborhood in Minneapolis near the university) flooded the streets after the Gophers victory and, as drunk young people are inclined to do, got out of control, starting fires and damaging street signs.

Yet another example that often times with victory comes a little chaos.
