Within moments of the Gophers' dramatic 2-1 victory over North Dakota in Thursday's Frozen Four semifinals Twitter was abuzz with activity about Justin Holl's late goal. Nationally, "Justin Holl" and "#FrozenFour" were trending phrases along with "#Masters" "Bill Haas" and "#NationalSiblingsDay"

Here's a sampling of some of the first tweets after Holl's goal with 0.6 seconds left, from some people you might have heard of:
