Puck Dynasty is a weekly podcast covering the University of Minnesota men’s hockey team and college hockey. Nathan Wells (SB Nation College Hockey/various outlets), Declan Goff (1500 ESPN/GoMN Sports) and Drew Cove (Minnesota Daily) discuss the latest news, analysis and give their opinions about the Gophers and sport as a whole.
This week the crew celebrate reaching double digits episodes by traveling to Madison, Wisconsin and covering the Border Battle series at Kohl Center between the Gophers and Badgers. Recorded in Nate’s hotel room after Minnesota’s 5-3 loss to Wisconsin on Saturday, the entire weekend gets discussed.
Topics include the Gophers extending its win streak to seven with an overtime victory Friday, fast starts both nights, two similarities and differences between the two games, who from Wisconsin stood out what has changed with the Badgers from the last two seasons, Justin Kloos being loose, how Minnesota’s second line fared without Tommy Novak, Taylor Cammarata, and defensive breakdowns. There is also discussion on the Big Ten and why Ohio State throwing a broom on the ice at Pegula Arena after not sweeping is both the best and worst thing.
In between segments questions on Tyler Nanne and Hockey Day Minnesota memories are answered.
