The final WCHA series held in Grand Forks, between Minnesota and North Dakota had it all: 11 goals, 16 penalties, one victory by each team and dead animals thrown on the ice.
After a North Dakota goal on two weeks ago fans littered the ice with dead gophers, the game was actually delayed as blood was scraped from the ice.
The dead gophers were supplied by a local farmer who threw them in the freezer until game day.
The games featured all the scraps and fights that series between the two rivals usually do, capped off by Ben Blood of UND and Seth Ambroz getting into a minor scuffle after Blood shoved Rau while the teams were shaking hands following Saturday’s game.
A day later North Dakota head coach Dave Hakstol revoked Blood’s assistant captaincy.
