further adventures in Jed York being unsuited for his position
In case you missed it during yesterday's post-win muppet euphoria, there was good news and bad news from around college hockey last night. The bad news is that Michigan dropped a comparison to Merrimack after Merrimack defeated Maine in the Hockey East playoffs. The good news is that we regained another comparison, as Nebraska-Omaha lost to Bemidji State. That pulled Bemidji above the TUC cliff, which kills UNO's TUC record (they are 0-4-1 against Bemidji). Also, Denver scored a comeback win over Minnesota State, which brings the
Screaming Eagles Mavericks to the brink of the TUC cliff. If Denver beats Minnesota State tonight, it will knock them off the cliff and solidify our comparison against both Denver and UNO.
What to root for tonight:
Bemidji State beating UNO either tonight or tomorrow.
Denver either beating Minnesota State again or losing to them both today and tomorrow. The worst case from that series is a Denver loss tonight and win tomorrow.
Maine to defeat Merrimack. That's the biggest game tonight.
Also, root for Alaska over Miami. The RedHawks are getting uncomfortably close to us, and those two head-to-head losses can be killers.
I miss rooting against MSU. Oh well. Go Blue!
7 wins left until Michigan brings home a National Championship!!!
(3 in the CCHA Playoffs and 4 in the NCAA Tourney)
EDIT: Sorry if you can't see Langlais's number. The ad blocks it on my computer.
Broken collarbone according to Red's post-game comments.
Big loss there.
Hopefully Louie can get back soon!
looking for four tickets to Saturday nights game vs. BGSU... looked on craigslist, stub hub, even called a ticket broker i worked with for tigers tickets one time... anyone have any ideas?
Just wanted to give some quick recognition to Davenport which won the ACHA D-I title tonight over Lindenwood in OT, 3-2.
Gotta love seeing a Michigan team win it. Also, this was Davenport's 4th straight national title. They won each of the last 3 D-II titles before moving up this year and winning the D-I title. I haven't bothered to look it up but they must have been absolutely crushing in D-II to be able to move up and win the national title the next year.
After a hard hit and unlucky break, Max Pacioretty was taken off the ice last night on a stretcher without moving. This was covered in a post somewhere between all the Tressel-gate posts, but just a quick update on how he's doing.
ESPN is saying that he has a concussion and he fractured his fourth cervical vertebra. I'm no doctor, so any MGoDocs out there? How serious is that neck injury? Seems like he should be able to play again (they say he was conscious, moving extremities, and talking last night at the hospital) but how long could this take?
As for Chara, he met with officials today and no word of punishment is out yet. Watching the hit, it sure doesn't seem dirty at all, just unfortunate.
