The Gophers rally for three straight late in the third to escape plucky Air Force 4-3. That certainly felt like deja vu all over again for a while. My highlight of the first two periods was cleaning out our litter boxes in the intermission before the third period. Yes, it was that putrid for the Maroon and Gold.
But a win's a win no matter how ugly it was. And with all the upsets and near upsets so far in the tourney (two #1 seeds gone already), no one is going to look a gift goal in the mouth.
I notice that Sisyphus didn't live blog this one. Another first round upset might have just sent him over the edge. I recall he went to ground for a quite a while after last year's Holy Cross disaster.
Let's hope that this one serves as a wake-up and the Gophers come ready to play tomorrow.
