the other one was getting too long
The march to the national championship begins tonight.
Have at it guys, first game has very little impact unless Michigan meets Union in the National Semi Finals.
The second game starts at 5:30 and the winner advances to face the winner of Michigan/Cornell.
Union vs MSU is on ESPNU but, www.espn3.com has all the coverage
If you're around Michigan hockey much, you know that they have by far the longest streak of NCAA Tournament bids at 22 consecutive seasons. The Daily put out another massive feature on the 1990 team, the last team to NOT make the NCAA Tournament (though they should have). Give this a read, it's worth your time.
When you take Michigan’s 22-year NCAA Tournament streak and press rewind — after you see a tiny goaltender transform back into a big one, after Brendan Morrison hands off a microphone in Cincinnati and after a tear floats back into an eye in a bar in Chicago — what you’ll see is Red Berenson hanging up a telephone.
Now press play.It was late Sunday night in March 1990. Bo had just retired, the Fab Five just months away from enrolling at Michigan, and Berenson had just finished a phone call that would decide whether his once-mighty hockey team would be relevant again after so many years.
Says later on that Red said he was going to leave Michigan if he didn't see any progess. Until then, there hadn't been any progress. Glad we kept him around.
And so starts the defection watch for college hockey players. hopefully the UM watch does not start for a couple weeks.
Sheahan will start out in Grand Rapids while a contract is being ironed out with the wings.
Seems like a kid that can help the wings pretty soon. Wings lack size up front, he does not.
