landing spot. will be interesting to see how he does.
It's almost time to drop the puck at Lawson. Michigan can sweep Western with a win tonight and advance.
Starting Lineups stay the same:
Di Giuseppe, Nieves, Lynch
Racine in net
Yes, I know that St. Patrick's Day isn't until tomorrow but I believe most people will be celebrating it today since tomorrow is a Sunday and a hangover tomorrow is much better than one on Monday.
Right now I'm in Chicago drinking coffee about to get my day started with some eggs, bacon and Glenlivet 15.
So what are everybody else's plans for the weekend and what sort of beverages will you be enjoying?
Also, I saw on Twitter a quote from Trouba: We'd like to avoid playing on Sunday. It's St. Patrick's Day.
I like the way he plays and thinks.
#7 Michigan vs #3 Western Michigan (U-M leads 1-0)
- As most of you probably know, Michigan came out strong, weathered a 2nd period storm, and scored in the third to take Game 1 of the best of three series. Michigan out shot WMU 30-18. U-M was 1-4 on the PP while WMU was 0-4. PDG, Selman, and Trouba (who had 2) were the Michigan goal scorers. Racine had a decent game in net and made a few big stops.
#9 Bowling Green vs #2 Notre Dame (ND leads 1-0)
- Notre Dame took game one in their best of three against BGSU with a 1-0 win in overtime. ND outshot BG 36-22 with Bryan Rust scoring the game's only goal 1:22 into overtime. 9 total penalties, none converted.
#5 Ferris State vs #4 Ohio State (FSU leads 1-0)
- Ferris got the road win in Columbus 4-2 despite being outshot 30-22. Each team converted one power play. Ferris scored the last three goals of the game to win.
#11 Michigan State vs #1 Miami (MSU leads 1-0) <lol
-Michigan State claims the upset of the night in college hockey by shutting out Miami in Oxford 3-0. Miami outshot MSU 34-24, but MSU scored twice in the first before adding a third in the last minute of the game. Only three penalties in the game and none of them were converted. State is trying to advance to Joe Louis Arena as the bottom seed in the league which also happened last year when BGSU beat Ferris before losing to Michigan in the semifinals. I know we all feel bad for The Dynasty.
Game 2's occur tomorrow night for each series. The Michigan game will not be on TV. Western is offering a stream for a fee and Michigan should have their radio crew there to be streamed at mgoblue.com tomorrow for free.
Suppossed to be a 6:35 drop with TV coverage on FSD. We don't get that in MN, so if anyone has a video or audio stream, please provide.

Congrats to Brendan Morrison. My question - Where is Turco, 2-time national champion and NCAA all-time wins leader?
New Red Wings Division Mates: Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Buffalo, Boston, Florida, and Tampa Bay. Going to miss the Blackhawks rivalry, but really like the new set up
