WCBNSports is broadcasting here. Better than Bucci.
this is like the Wisconsin series...not looking good on the road, but coming back home and playing better at Yost
and we need the sweep I think. Not sure a split will cover it. Just a gut feeling.
I appreciate Buccigross' love and support for college hockey, but he seems much better as an anchor than as a play-by-play guy
This is an un-fun hockey thread
Why can't the BTN or ESPN find camermen who can shoot hockey. It's awful again
ESPN News still exists?! Jackpot. I first flipped to Big Ten Network only to be disappointed and see bball, but ESPN comes through.
Another dual hockey night watching Michigan and the Wings.
Our ranking just changed mid-game. ESPN switched it from #11 to #13 on the ticker
Really outplaying Minnesota right now. Wilcox has been excellent unfortunately
Dominated the first 10 minutes, let it a goal on Minnesota's 3rd or 4th shot
a lot of pressure, some decent chances....then what looked like yet another weak goal given up by Nagelvoort....this is not looking good
That goal really took the life out of our sails. We were playing great at first; a lot of energy, but that goal just killed it
I was on my way up to the game and I got a flat tire. Dammit. Sitting here waiting for roadside assistance in Milan.
I'm not at home, and WatchESPN isn't working for me.
There's a streamtorrent at the link below but otherwise I didn't see anything
Evan Allen! 1-1
It seems like the sound ratio between the play-by-play and the arena noise favors the PBP too much. I wish there was more crowd noise in the broadcast
I like when you can turn the volume up and it seems like you are actually in the arena
Whether he's just a marked man now or whether he really deserves them I don't know, but he takes some kind of roughing/checking penalty every single game now
Looks like a rough call on replay
that was nowhere near charging
post to post by Nagelvoort
I was certain that was a goal when I saw it slip across the crease
Get a Josh Rosen chant going (if he's actually there)
COPP!!!!!!!!!!!! GREAT PASS
WE CONVERTED A TWO-ON-ONE! WE CONVERTED A TWO-ON-ONE! WE CONVERTED A TWO-ON-ONE! WE CONVERTED A TWO-ON-ONE! WE CONVERTED A TWO-ON-ONE! WE CONVERTED A TWO-ON-ONE! WE CONVERTED A TWO-ON-ONE! WE CONVERTED A TWO-ON-ONE! WE CONVERTED A TWO-ON-ONE!
I know that was technically a 2-on-2 but the pass was that pass we never ever convert anymore
We get a different monkey to run the camera? This one seems to be drunk.
We controlled play but for the Minnesota goal and the few minutes between that and our 1st goal. Looking good
Michigan 2, Minnesota 1
Skjei unassisted at 9:20
Allen from Lynch at 12:36
Copp from Motte and Hyman at 18:02
Michigan leads 11-9
- Power Plays
MIN 0-1, U-M 0-0 with one power play carrying over to the 2nd
goalies are Nagelvoort and Wilcox
ref is Hunt, linesmen are McInchak and Hutek
This is pretty awesome getting Turco for this interview. You don't see this often
Marty Turco is at the game. Being interviewed at the intermission.
This is a big game for us. Hopefully we will stay focused. Having Mac back will help. Band sounds good.
The announcers love the band too.
but I thought that was an awesome interview. A lot of insight you rarely ever get in college hockey broadcasts. You dont normally know when the alums are in town
The history of Michigan Hockey is a large part of what makes it so great. I'm glad the alums come back. Nice interview.
Michigan 11-2-2 when leading after one. Statistical conflict for the PBP guys
He should try checking more often
Beautiful tic-tac-toe pass and Wilcox just got it. Nearly 3-1
Guptill has definitely been better since he was a healthy scratch. Wise move by Red
Wilcox has had some awesome saves to keep this a 1 goal game
#12 Vermont up 1-0 on #8 UML
#2 BC up 1-0 on #9 Notre Dame
#10 NoDak tied 0-0 with CC
#11 Providence up 2-0 on Maine
#13 Cornell up 1-0 on Clarkson
So no one is doing us any favors so far
Minnesota dropping some serious bombs on Nagelvoort. Nothing too close fortunately
Clear the zone!
Edit: And one of the two inevitable results occurred, fortunately just a penalty instead of a goal. Way too flat flooted back there
insight and updates, Gordon!
You know your hockey!
Wow two huge chances for both teams back to back. We nearly made it 3-1 and then Minnesota came right back.
this is one of the more enjoyable games I have seen this year from a style perspective...very high level
The D didn't even slow down the Minnesota player. Might as well have been a breakaway
Dude pretty much entered the zone unimpeded and painted the crossbar just over Nagelvoort's shoulder. Rough.
They just have another gear I haven't seen from anyone else but Boston College frankly. They just fly
2-2 is probably a just score. Minnesota had more chances that period, but both teams had a lot of 'grade A' chances. We easily could've put two on the board that period, Minnesota could've as well
Minnesota was overpowering - you could sense the goal was coming. 2-2 after 2 is OK but we need to regroup and get the home ice advantage for the third. A win tonight would be big.
The game on BTN isn't very exciting. Looks like if we win tomorrow we're getting Bucky or Sparty.
for all my faithful MGoFollowers...
A few good scoring chances for both already. 18:00 to go
Puck was sitting in the crease and Voort overslid, somehow Minnesota couldnt put it in. I really do not understand how. 2-2. 17:00 to go
Edit: Downing broke it up. Brilliant play
Buccigross needs to be checked for kidney stones.
No one can get a firm shot on it and Wilcox turns them all aside. Great period so far. Wilcox is a good goalie.
14:50 to go
Guptill has been our best player tonight. Most of our chances have come thru him
You rarely see college hockey go up and down so much, in a game with so much skill on both sides. Hopefully we come out on top...obviously
We're holding our own in thie third. Could go either way. Sure hope it goes ours. No cheap penalties!!
Icing on Minnesota. Michigan is been the better team this period. Looking good so far...
to snag one of these from the old Golden Gophers.
that our defense is either having to or choosing to play more passive - I think they're petrified of getting deked out of their pants - as a result, Minnesota is just waltzing into our zone unopposed.
They're like 3 lines deep of Carl Hagelins
couldn't put it in. 9:43 to go
2-2. 9:35 to go in the 3rd
The student section is getting a lot of coverage tonight. The band too.
Michigan has blocked a ton of shots tonight. A big reason why we're in it
The defense is doing a much better job tonight of blocking shots
Both teams seem to be cautious. I think they both fear the other teams skill
I must be learning something from Gordon
Nothing of note to report
Michigan getting less possession, less chances. Minnesota controlling but not getting many chances either.
5:40 to go
4:23 to go.
Terror. Please don't lose.
Michigan really hasn't had a scoring chance in a long time. A lot of fruitless Minnesota possession
Refs are letting them play
Minnesota with a good chance. Mac tried.
How much time is left?
Minnesota ran into Voort but no call. Faceoff in the MN zone
We've been dodging some chances in the last minute
2-2 tie. Going to OT
Michigan had a decent chance with about :15 to go. Minnesota with a final rush that was fruitless
And we're going to overtime
is there an intermission?
no I think it's 5 min break
Is high-stick reviewable in college? Minnesota's first goal looked like a high stick.
The puck has dropped
Mostly in M's zone so far
3:55 to go
but Wilcox with the save
Penalty Kill - Hooking on Deblois
Saved a goal with a hook. It is what it is
3:05 to go. 2:00 of PP
seemed like from the radio they have been letting them play.
now a penalty in OT? BS
PP clock didn't start on time. what the hell?
How bad was that penalty call. Our mgoblue radio guys are livid.
Personally I thought it was fine. In regulation, that's a penalty no question. In OT, maybe you could argue you call it looser.
Our radio guys are infamous homers. I love em, but they're homers
Yeah, it's sometimes hard listening to them because of that. But in OT, there better be blood or it's not a penalty (at least that's what I had thought the golden rule to have been).
Oh well. We better get them tomorrow.
He definitely impeded the shot...but it was weak enough that I think most refs would've let it slide in an OT situation. Hard to be mad, hard not to be mad
Lack of consistency is the trademark of college refs. All game that was not called. We were hosed.
Fuck we lost
TV announcers did not question the penalty call.
Looking forward to a better result tomorrow. Going to the game for senior night.
I thought a sweep or maybe 4 or 5 points would sneak us in. Now it's going to be really tough even with a split.
Sad that we'll probably miss the tournament two straight years. Just sweeping PSU and not choking our 3-1 lead at MSU probably means this is just a blip
Mott just stood there
Just leaving game. We got cheated.
Season continues to let me down
Umm. On tv it looked like a clear hook right in front of goal.
You don't call that in overtime, especially after we have been getting mugged all night. More of the B1G protecting the top team, just like every sport
A ghost was going to cover the loose man
Two straight games with very deflating losses. At least get a tie
Both games they only scored in the first and can't hold leads
Young team and it shows
I don't think an OT loss counts as a tie. I think you need to get to the shootout for it to go down as a tie.
I didn't even yell SHIT! or FUCK! when minnesota scored. I just sat in silence. And when they scored the OT goal, I just got up, marked the result on the schedule and moved on.
Sad that I'm going into games expecting disaster.
Say that it was not initiating to our faces (children of Yost). Our ears were ringing after te first period.
Yes I just got back from the game and I am PISSED OFF.
I was about 5 seconds away from getting into a fist fight with a super annoying gopher fan in the parent section next to the CoY.
I never said it was the student's fault.
The reduced capacity as a result of the renovations has something to do with it.
Along with, well, a consistent team. Decent home record this year but it's just missing something, the atmosphere is.
After going to a few games this year one last year for the first time 2009 I would say this is true. The atmosphere just seems artificial to me now. And in the sections I've been in people don't participate in cheers at all.
Reds last game? I haven't heard anything about Red leaving. Is this true??
but many are starting to assume he'll retire after this year as the program continues to struggle (compared to what was normal) since Red said he'd retire if he thought he was in the way
If the team can't beat PSU when I'm posting, what hope is there against the #1 team? I had some when we tied it up and took the lead, but when we couldn't extend that, a feeling of impending doom arose. I felt like MN was going to find a way to score.
I lament the losses to PSU & FYS, which left us needing to sweep the #1 team - a too-tall task. So that leaves winning the conference tournament again, I suppose?
We fell to 15th in PWR which means we are probably on the outside looking in. Need a win tomorrow!! GO BLUE!!!
yes, it was a penalty, but, with about 3 minutes left they tackled our guy around the net, no call, mentioned at the time by announcers as would have been a penalty in the first period
zebras cost us
they owe us for tomorrow
