Sioux come up just short in series against Gophers

The Sioux showed once again that they are becoming a team that nobody can overlook anymore as they had the second-ranked Gophers on the ropes going into the third period on Saturday leading 2-1. The Gophers would score four unanswered goals in the third to win 5-2 (last goal was an empty net).

On Friday, the Sioux could not take advantage of golden opportunities as they were held 0-for-12 on the power play and had four 5-on-3 opportunities in a 4-0 loss.

Friday / Saturday

“If you look at the NHL as a model there are genuinely a few playoff
heartaches before you ultimately win the surprise of the Stanley Cup,” head coach Brian Idalski said. “That just seems to be a natural progression for an organization. I think to a lesser extent that is what we are going through here. We have to be close and feel some of those heartaches, and go back to the drawing board and put in the work to make ourselves better. We need to be hungry to get over that hump. I believe that is happening and that we are close. I think our kids believe that now, too.”
