Gophers rout Wisconsin in a sweep

first_img“Our team did a real good job of keeping them to the perimeter, making my job easier,” goaltender Mat Robson told reporters. “I feel like they made me look really good all weekend.”Robson got his fifth consecutive start in net for the Gophers Saturday. He faced 24 shots and allowed one goal, while Friday he faced 40 shots and allowed two goals.The game was riddled with penalties — seven power plays for each team. Minnesota has had difficulty converting on the power play this season, with only 17 goals with the extra man coming into the game, but this matchup was different.Ramsey scored on the power play, a unit he is not usually on. Lucia credited that to his effort on the penalty kill that stopped all seven of Wisconsin’s power play chances.“We had some good looks tonight,” Lucia told the Gopher Radio Network. “It was nice to see [Jack] Ramsey get rewarded for all the dirty work that those guys do during the game with the penalty kill.”Minnesota earned another three points Saturday, which brought them to 29. The team also went ahead of Wisconsin for home-ice advantage.Notre Dame, Ohio State and Michigan are all ahead of the Gophers in the conference standings. The Wolverines have 32 points, close enough for Minnesota to get even in points with one victory.“The guys were ready at warmups,” Lucia told the Gopher Radio Network. “We talked about the importance of this weekend, the importance of this game tonight, a chance to leave here ahead of Wisconsin.” Gophers rout Wisconsin in a sweepMinnesota’s offense scored seven goals Saturday night.Ellen Schmidt, Daily File PhotoTyler Sheehy, left, and Rem Pitlick, right, watch a play unfold at 3M Arena at Mariucci on Feb. 4, 2017.

On top of Pitlick’s offensive resurgence, another name that has been quiet on the scoresheet this season came back and scored a goal for the first time in months.Forward Leon Bristedt scored 20 goals two seasons ago for the Gophers, but had only three coming into Saturday’s game. He scored his fourth goal of the season in the victory, which marked the first time he scored an empty-net goal since a game in late December against Army. The last goal he scored that wasn’t an empty-netter was on Nov. 4 against Michigan State.It didn’t take long for the Gophers to get back into their offensive stride. Just 1:07 into the game, Bristedt’s goal opened the scoring. Minnesota wasn’t done there, though. The Gophers scored two more in the first period alone, including the eventual game-winner from Brent Gates Jr.Another forward who is enjoying a resurgence on the scoreboard is captain Tyler Sheehy. He added a goal Saturday, and he ended the weekend series with three goals in two games.Besides the scoring prowess returning to Minnesota’s lineup, the defense kept the gates closed for Wisconsin’s offense. The Gophers scored 11 goals in the two games, while the Badgers scored just three.last_img read more

Memory Lane Has a Three-Way Fork

first_imgThe Atlantic:In his magnum opus, In Search of Lost Time, Marcel Proust wrote that “remembrance of things past is not necessarily the remembrance of things as they were.” That elegant line speaks to a simple truth: There are things you remember, and there are things you remember well. Even if you can recall a past event, your memories will vary considerably in how much detail they contain, and how correct those details are.In an elegant experiment, a team of neuroscientists led by Jon Simons at the University of Cambridge have shown that these aspects of our memories—our success at recalling them, their precision, and their vividness—depend on three different parts of the brain.Read the whole story: The Atlantic More of our Members in the Media >last_img read more
