It’s been a crazy past couple of days for this week’s guests.

In the last week, UMD women’s head coach Maura Crowell and the Bulldogs director of hockey operations Nick Bryant won gold with the U.S. Under-18 Women’s Hockey Team in Slovakia and then came home to Duluth to win the Minnesota Cup at Amsoil Arena.

Crowell and Bryant tell us about their experience in Bratislava, Slovakia, everything from what they were feeling in that 3-on-3 overtime against Canada in the championship game to what they ate and what sites they visited when they had free time.

Hosted by News Tribune college hockey reporter Matt Wellens and My9 Sports commentator Zach Schneider, and produced by the News Tribune’s Samantha Erkkila, new episodes of Bulldog Insider are released every Thursday throughout the season. You can listen to Season 1 and 2 of Bulldog Insider at, on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify or wherever you get your podcasts.
