“It was pretty difficult for both teams [to score]. The normal things you could do on normal ice were a little harder for me,” Dzingel said. “The 1-0 score reflected how tough it was with the wind and the snow.”

The football atmosphere added nice effect to the hockey experience. Fans joined forces in chants usually intended for football and basketball stadiums. The constant low roar kept energy up throughout the game.

“It seemed like a very festive environment as far as the fans were concerned,” Gophers coach Don Lucia said. “It was the type of game we expected it to be. You’re going to have to chip and chase … but we did enough to get the one goal … and obviously Adam did the rest. … I’m sure our players will always remember this game.”
