Great seats with a drink ledge, needless to say though, we will be moving for the second and third.

CCHA Championship Game Michigan vs ND Open Thread
Sitting, literally right in front of the ND band...
Here's a (stream link), but you need to have Stream Torrent to use the link. Stream Torrent can be downloaded from here (I think):
(click Softpedia Secure Download (US))
Basically just copy and paste the stream link into Stream Torrent once it is opened.
Thanks! How does this doohicky work? Where do you paste the stream link, and is this the right stream link? It's not working for me, but that may be my bad. Please help a noob.
So once you have the program downloaded, open it up.
Should look like this:
You won't see any of those streams. Copy the link I posted earlier, then right click in the blank area (where the streams are for me) and click paste link. It should add the stream. Then click play on the stream, it will open a new window. Give it some time to load even if it says "webpage cant load" or anything like that, it will work.
Hope this helps!
I know you're not here to troubleshoot, but mine just stays blank when I click paste like it doesn't recognize the address or something
Yeah, same here. Nothing happens when I try to paste the link.
but I went into his post where he originally linked it and have gotten something to come up with this link:
It's possible something was lost in the "click here" translation.
u da man
Good call, sorry about that. Hope it's working for everyone.
edit: It added the http: thing in when I "hyperlinked" it earlier, but the link is just supposed to start with "st".
To avoid confusion:
Yay! Didn't work the first two times I tried it, then worked! Thanks, GO BLUE!

Let's finish off the run!! To Hell with Notre Dame!!!
here we go...
Just like usual, hockey on the Comcast description, Baylor v. Texas softball on the TV. Nothing says "sports Detroit" and hockey like two Texas schools playing softball...
As nervous as I've ever been. Go Blue!
You must be young.
working hard early
Are there even 8,000 people there?
the "new" Irish tradition of bringing along an imaginary "girlfriend/boyfriend" when doing a headcount at The Joe today
For all the marbles
Let's Go Blue!
To Hell with Notre Dame!
Let's win the whole fuckin' Gongshow!
M needs to generate some chances
Should replace jmfr at lb chick is a beast
Has a deeper voice than James earl jones
Michigan with decent defense and good saves by Racine...but they need to work harder to get some offense
on a ND breakaway...wow
Michigan is being completely outworked and outplayed for the first time in about a month
Don't start playing bad now! Michigan needs to keep the NCAA tourney alive!
penalty to Michigan...
Holding. Let's go PK!
I asked nicely!
saving Michigan right now
SHG!!!!!! 1-0 U-M!!!!!
DeBlois - shorthanded! 2 on 1!
SH GOAL 1-0.
Nice PK and short handed goal
Gimme the canddyududjalqmwbd
WE WANT MOAR GOALS!
I just turn it on and boom, we score. Awesome.
Turn it off and on a few more times
Our PK scores more than most powerplays. 1-0 baby.
This is unreal. Lets go blue!!!!!!
SHORTY, UP 1 after 1
gotta feel good about that
1-0 good guys at the first break. Keep it up, guys.
We didn't play so well, but are on the right side of the score.
Need to play better in the 2nd and 3rd.
Huge goal right before end of the 1st. Momentum all on our side now. WOW
Ill take another 3 Michigan goals in 2:11 like yesterday this period please.
Outplayed but winning. Gotta love that.
I have no idea why they changed them, but they went from some of the best helmets to some of the worst in the course of like one year.
SH goal by DeBlois from Trouba is the only gosl of the period
ND outshoots Michigan 18-6
Honestly, Michigan is extremely fortunate to be up in this game because ND outworked, outplayed, outskated, etc. Michigan by a wide margin in the 1st. Racine and the team defense kept ND off the scoreboard. No complaints though, but if they want to win this thing, they HAVE to start skating
A great 1st period. Second period must be better. Just like yesterday. If Michigan leads after 2, they will win this game.
but it's certainly better than nothing
Yeah, I got a few texts saying "Fuck yeah!" and such, so I knew we were going to score and was just waiting...
Guess that's what we get for not living in Michigan anymore!
Racine was great. We were not particularly. Gotta improve in the second.
For any Canadians on here, the game is on The Score in Canada.
here we go...again
Okay keep it up guys. Don't start to play conservative!!!
Need more shoot.
KILL. KILL. KILL.
Dang, Moffatt to the box.
Moffat to the box - goaltender interference
penalty to Moffat for getting pushed into the goalie
didn't see it
Goalie Interference. Let's go boys kill another one.
Refs trying to keep ND in game. What a joke!
Oh, shit, two without sticks.
Another penalty?? Screw this!!
ARGH, Moffie to the box.
Announcers hating the refs
clusterfuck of a PK with two forwards losing their stick...uh oh
I've never seen two players loose/ break sticks on the same shift
Penalty Killers needed. Big faceoff win there. One comes on and one goes off.
ND 3 PP's, Michigan Zero
it takes years off your life guys...once you accept that, it gets NO easier
Sounds like Racine is standing on his head. I'm sure his head hurts.
Sounds like he is seeing the puck really well today.
Racine is standing on his head!
What a kill. 5 on 3.
wow...slashing penalty coming to ND...Michigan PP
WHOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAA C YA!
Let's go blue!
Finally a penalty on ND.
Wow. Great job on the penalty kill
Anyone have a video stream to share? FSD? Thanks.
been looking, nothing to be found just the audio
First 10 comments on this post should get you video
thank. tried it and no luck. I've got the audio so I'm good.
Great work on the pk. Now get the pp going
Damn, no joy.
As long as Michigan keeps the pace slow, we will win this game.
Bluesman streat torrent still working for you all? My torrent window opens but it remains as "detecting" with "channel seems to be offline" message.
Shit, they score, 1-1.
still pretty much outworking and outplaying Michigan...1-1, things need to change
Not good - we were discombobulated there.
FU Joe Louis boards!
ARGH STAY OUT OF THE DAMN BOX!
Too much time in the Michigan zone. No offense for Michigan. Michigan needs more scoring chances.
STAY OUT OF THE DANG BOX!
Another penalty. Put your arm down and let them play.
is streamtorrent stream still working for you? Says "offline".
It is BLUESMAN stream, right?
The this game is going the next goal will probably be the game winner.
At least this is the last time for CCHA refs!
Next year we will be complaining about Big Tehhhhhhhnnnnnn refs.
to what the CCHA has now.
The Big Ten is going to say "Where can we find some D-1 caliber refs?...oh maybe from that whole league that disbanded and has a lot of available refs now.". It's going to be the same guys
but it's not the Big Ten being dumb, there is a real problem of finding officials capable of refereeing at this level. I'd love to say I could do better (and I'd bet I have a good deal more training/experience than a lot of people who might say that) but it just isn't true. The B1G can't go to your local USA Hockey seminar and come back with 2-3 people with the qualities they need; these guys are the best they can get.
Dang, we wuz robbed!
has a "2011 NCG vs Duluth" its only a matter of time feel to it right now...that is not a good thing
The optimistic part of me says it's instead the CC game from that year.
the score is 1-1. LETS GET EM IN THE THIRD!!!
Pucker Factor increasing.
well, we got completely out played after the 1st 5-10 mins. Need to play our best game in the 3rd to move on
I'd like to unclench my butthole but this damn game got me uptight.
20 minutes to go, and a lifetime to remember!
Gotta take over in the 3rd period!
They have to come out with urgency, otherwise it's over.
This is it guys. You came all this way. To WIN! To continue the NCAA tournament streak. To win the final CCHA Playoff Championship. Take this 3rd period and show them and everyone in the world what MICHIGAN HOCKEY is! Michigan will win this game! GO BLUE!
Their forecheck is really good and we've been rattled by it.
Yo, sorry to repeat, but is the stream torrent still working for anyone? I'm getting the "offline" message. It's the Bluesman stream, right?
Still working. Give it time to load.
Only 10 shots on net for Michigan.
I think we can figure about Michigan getting a PP so they are going to have to find some energy and win these 20 minutes.
one period to go. Let the magic at the Joe begin. #believe Go BLUE
Go get em lads!
1-1 end of 2nd
1-1 thru 2.
SOG 28-10 in favor of ND
1-1, intermission heading into the 3rd period. UM took the lead but ND scored in the 2nd.
There was a stream torrent up that is no longer working, and there is a radio stream posted on the first page.
One period to define your season - Let's bring it early and often!
damnit another commercial
We're very fortunate it's 1-1
Let's go! Get em this period boys! No holding back now! Leave it all on the ice! Go Blue!
these values.com commercials are the strangest things I have seen
here we go...for the final time
maybe we can also channel some 2007 MSU vs BC. Doesn't matter the shot count, only matters who's gonna get that next goal. We've got it in us
Need more scoring chances.
FUCK! They score, 2-1 them.
this is extremely not good
2-1 ND, really early 3rd.
Pretty obvious that was coming, but fuck!
30 seconds into the 3rd. Le sigh...
working harder, skating faster, winning more battles, suffocating defense
I sure hope they have something truly spectacular waiting for the end of the game. For whatever reason, they just don't seem to have that same edge today. This is the season.
ND going to be tough for Blue to overcome w/ only 11 SOGs.
What a good chance there.... AHHHH
DAMN, robbed again!
great chance for M, denied by Summerhayes
We can't get too pretty, just grind a goal out.
Anything for a goal.
Now would be a good time to score 4 goals in 6 minutes....
Alright. Season on the line here. Time for Blue to drain the tank. Leave nothing on the ice.
I think you used up all your goals yesterday...
I didn't PUNCH YOU IN THE FACE ENOUGH yesterday
Go Michigan Wolverines! Go Blue!
Getting some shots on goal now, there's still time (keeping fingers crossed)...
CCHA Referees Suck!
What the fracking shit was that icing getting blown off?!
Terrible call waving off that last icing against ND. Warrants a "we want Shegos" chant in tribute to the CCHA.
Idk if its the gameplan but this is the most slow and most timid I've seen Michigan play
It's far from the first time a Jeff Jackson coached team has done that to Michigan.
Rope-A-Dope! Michigan is going to lull them into thinking the game is over with about 30 seconds to play and then explode for 10 goals.
Time out Notre Dame.
Deblois damn near tied this game.
Guys. You're not going to get anything in the middle, in front of the net. Notre Dame is putting 4 guys there.
It was definitely a good run for Michigan.
The streak is dead.
How much time left in the game?
Not enough time, I'm afraid.
Shit, they got the empty netter.
Well the streak had to end at some point, like most I'm disappointed but am proud they went on this run to at least give themselves a chance.
nice run Red
but we---and Red---can look forward to starting another run next fall. I think this team learned a lot about itself over the last dozen games, and it bodes well for the future.
Props to your boys for sacking up. Could have easily folded at any point.
Too soon. Go away.
No one like you still. It's not our fault your alumni can't write a blog worth reading.
Yes I know there is no one like me. Thanks.
Jeff Jackson tried so hard to give us that by abandoning the forecheck. Credit to Summerhayes, he was great in the third.
Great last month, just too little too late. Adios CCHA, you will not be missed.
good run Red, the season was an enigma to put it nicely, but at least the fight continued to the last minute once the tournament started.
Not so. Rough way to end the season but much better than just going 10-18-3 in the regular season and dying in the 1st round of the playoffs. Showed a lot of heart
That was a helluva streak. May it never be equaled.
Except by Michigan, of course.
Hate to lose to the tarnished domers but hey, the boys gave it their best. Good effort.
*sigh* A very good run to end the season. Too bad it wasn't a great run. Actually, it's too bad we didn't win a couple more games somewhere earlier in the season.
And so we say fuck you, Gongshow.
Effective, but that classic MSU just-clog-up-the-middle is terrible to watch. I hate it. It was the right call for them, but I hate it
It really wasn't. We had more good chances against it than while they were forechecking.
FUUCKKKKKKKKKKKK! Get all the way there and lose in the last game. Shit.
It's a shame they could not have played with this kind of heart and determination the entire season. It was nice to see them come together as the year progressed.
Bring on the B1G. Go Blue.
Glad the rcmb is excited. MSU comes in last place, but at least Michigan didn't win! http://michiganstate.247sports.com/Board/93/SCum-thrashing-Redhawks-in-C...
Just spare yourself from even looking. Those boards are total and complete trash. I am embarrassed for Michigan State and their fans because of that board.
I only went there because I knew they would post something as soon as Michigan lost because, well, that's how they are. I can make myself feel better by watching more basketball and laughing at the lowest common denominator on the rcmb.
finish 14th in the first-ever B1G Hockey Season . I don't care that in actuality there will only be an 'Original 6' of sorts next fall...
Eh, one chapter closes, the next begins.
Fuck. Tough to see the streak end like that. Still, a stellar run to finish the year. Let's go absolutely dominate the new B1G.
Damn thought we had em after one but evidently just ran out of it all.
The Gongshow finale. Good riddance.
This was some of the most exciting hockey I have ever seen / listened to down the stretch. It is hard to believe that this is the same team that I saw lose in pathetic fashion to Cornell at Madison Square Garden earlier this year. I wonder how many of these guys come back next year who could play pro next year. I would love to see another year of Trouba.
I also wonder how many more years Red wants to coach here, and it will be wierd for him to not be in a tourney.
Good show, boys, and let's get them next year!
I am not going to miss the CCHA.
My emotional trends of this season:
Preseason: Yes! Can't wait for Michigan hockey this year!
Two weeks in: It's okay, just a slow-ish start. We'll pick it up
Two months in: It's okay, we'll still grind our way to the top of the CCHA
Four months in: Well this season is over. Thanks for ruining a season where we should have dominated.
Six months in: Where has this team been all year? Too little too late? Maybe, but this is sure a nice little run.
CCHA Tourney: This team is the best team in the NCAA right now. We just destroyed WMU at their place, which is almost impossible to do and now we crushed Miami! GO BLUE
Championship game: This isn't the same team that beat WMU and Miami. This looks like the January team. WTF!
Oh well. They did it to themselves. Good try, but it was too little too late. That's what happens when you take 4 months off. Usually the end result isn't in your favor.
Fucking egg in the championship game?! Good riddance to this team, Red time to hang it up, bring back Mel
Time for YOU to hang it up buddy. Go sleep it off.
Hasn't watched a Michigan hockey game lately. Try it before commenting next time
Go away and don't come back.
I'm disappointed too, with the streak ending my first year as a student and the last in the CCHA, but holy crap this comment is classless.
I'm proud of how they fought and I like the way they finished the season off, giving hope for next year.
Here's a quick recap, no highlights today. http://centericehockey.us/content/ccha-championship-recap
Michigan had a great run.
New streak will start next year.
I just got back from the Joe.
I went to both games and been to every Michigan home game this season along with the Big Apple Classic against Cornell at MSG. It is amazing the growth this team has show since the Ohio series. It is night and day between the team I saw get blown out by BGSU and the team that showed up today and last night. It it ironic that this team's achilles heel for over half of the season, goaltending, ended up being one of our strengths by the end. Racine has a bright future. He definitely earned the CCHA All Tournament Goaltender. The way Red got the team to turn around was a great coaching job.
The streak had to end someday. It just means we need to start a new one next season in the B1G.
On another topic, the ND hockey band is perhaps the most annoying pep band I have ever witnessed. They literally played the same damn drum beat the entire game, even during play (which I thought was against NCAA rules). Hockey East can have ND and their annoying as hell band along with the Ron Mason style trap coached by Jeff Jackson.
I noticed that too. The fans were the same way. The only cheer they had was "Let's go Irish" *clap clap clapclapclap*
I have been watching UM hockey since I was a kid which just happened to be the year the streak started. I grew up going to the Joe and NCAA tourney games my whole UM hockey life every year... My wife and I were students when getting free pizza for giving someone a 10 goal beatdown was a pretty regular occurance. It is going to be very odd when the brackets are announced tonight and we are not in one of them. I guess I was just spoiled a bit, but traveling with the team this time of year was just something we did automatically...gonna miss it.
I am glad they did make a run and at least make some people crap their pants about playing us in the end instead of just bowing out in the first round like they could have done. They worked hard and went out fighting till the end and as a fan that is all you can ask I guess.
It's going to be tough to watch any of the tourney this year...hopefully the basketball team keeps the run going to keep my mind and attention off of it.
Here's to a more consistent 2013-14 season in the B1G!
It had to happen; next year let's hope they show up with a chip on their shoulder. Tough to lose at the end, but it happens.
