To be perfectly honest, the best part of this play wasn’t even the diving tip in. Yes, it was an impressive play by Minnesota forward Erik Haula, but I was more impressed by the backhand saucer pass made by Christian Isackson. To do that at full speed and put it in a perfect spot for your teammate is nothing short of impressive.
Thankfully Haula was not hurt even though he appeared shaken up with the check he endured at the end of the play. Haula ended up finishing with three points on the night, as the #2 Gophers fell to Minnesota State 5-3.
