mesmerism! presidential assassinations! circuses on fire!
I know there's already two hockey topics on the front page but I think this one is worthy of its own since most are unlikely to get sifting through those threads for this video. (And we're in a dead period anyway)
Alex got the game-winning shootout goal in the 7th round last night to beat #4 Ferris State and this video has been making the rounds on hockey blogs (I've seen it shown up in a few places already). People have called it "Datsyukian". Watch for yourself below:
Reported yesterday on Twitter and officially confirmed today by the team, the Red Wing's AHL affiliate in Grand Rapids has signed Kevin Lynch to a 1-year deal.
Lynch was drafted by Columbus in 2009, but became free agent last month after he did not sign. Kevin joins former Wolverine teammate Luke Glendening on the roster.
Per Bob McKenzie, Jacob Trouba whos draft rights belong to the Winnipeg Jets (Currently 3rd in the East) will be making a decision the next couple days if he stays at Michigan or turns pro.
Edit: Seems like the same is true for Jon Merrill.
WPG prospect Jacob Trouba, the Univ of Michigan D whose NCAA season ended Sun, taking a couple of days to decide if he should turn pro now.— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) March 25, 2013
NJD prospect Jon Merrill, also a Univ of Michigan D, is also taking a couple of days to decide on his immediate future. Merrill is a Junior.— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) March 25, 2013

This is the final CCHA Championship, Michigan going for their 10th Playoff Title, and to extend their NCAA Tournament streak to 23 years.
The tournament streak is only over when we decide it is over, LETS GO BLUE!!!!
I was checking to see if anyone is going to hit up downtown Detroit tomorrow for some Basketball viewing/Michigan Hockey at the Joe? Any special place for basketball viewing parties? I am hoping to get down there around noon... Maybe Neemo's then take the shuttle down to the joe... thoughts?
#7 Michigan swept #3 Western Michigan
#2 Notre Dame swept #9 Bowling Green
#11 Michigan State vs #1 Miami (Redhawks wins series 2-1)
- It was a very good effort by a team that was mostly an embarrassment for the entire season, but Miami took the best of three series with a 4-1 win in the deciding game against the Spartans. Michigan State will be losing sleep over five penalties to Miami in a row, that also included two 5x3's, and only converting once. Miami outshot MSU 35-19 and both teams converted once on the PP. Miami advances as the top seed back to Joe Louis Arena. Miami will make the NCAAs no matter what happens at Joe Lous this weekend, they are only going to be playing for seeding.
#5 Ferris State vs #4 Ohio State (OSU wins series 2-1)
- Ferris State dominated the shot clock and large portions of play during the game, but could not come away with a win in the deciding game three in Columbus. Ohio State overcame a 2-1 deficit to advance to the semifinals despite getting outshot 49-27. Ohio State cashed in twice on the PP while Ferris did not convert either of their chances. Last year's national finalists will not qualify for the NCAA Tournament. OSU advances to Joe Louis for the first time in seven years and looks to need to win the conference title to qualify for the NCAAs.
Semifinal Matchups at Joe Louis Arena on Saturday
#7 Michigan vs #1 Miami (just like in 2010, I have a good feeling about this)
#4 Ohio State vs #2 Notre Dame
Both games will be televised on Fox Sports Detroit +, times are TBD
