Another test as Western Michigan (5-0-3) comes to visit for two games this weekend.
TV: Fox Sports Detroit
Big game!! Would be huge to get a sweep! But I'd take a split with the loss coming in OT
I'm on the site, but see only Michigan Football Playoff Streams... Do they usually broadcast their live TV anywhere?
I don't think they broadcast their games online on Fox Sports Detroit. Unless it's on some sort of Iphone or Android app. But I don't even know if they have that
Soft penalty. Broncos on the power play.
Luckily I get it on FCS since I don't get FSD
GREAT move by Treais. Good save by the Broncos goalie
Puck loose in front ends up in the net.
Another Bronco PP coming up.
Broncos on another power play. We sure play sloppy. l guess it's expected with a young team.
PK has done well. Now we get a PP opportunity.
Penalty kill has been pretty good tonight. Now we get a chance on a PP
It's hard to tell on the radio but it sounds like the refs are making some questionable calls. True?
When we were on the PP there was a player who fell down to the side of and behind the goal, and a Bronco was keeping him down a long time - crowd certainly wanted a call.
Di Giuseppe lost his stick and was heading to the bench when he interfered with a Bronc near the point - can't really complain about that.
The first penalty on Michigan was definitely soft. Although I can't blame the refs too much because it probably looked bad live. On the replay, he was barely touched on the crosscheck. I never got to see a replay of PDG's penalty though. It seemed suspect when I first saw it though. I was out of the room for our second penalty though, so I have no idea if it was warrented or not.
Western holds, and we get the first PP opportunity of the 2nd.
They get a 2-on-1 after the PP and score.
Hunwick had a piece of the shot, but it trickled past him.
Wow. We turn it over on the blue line, Western gets a 2-0 and Hunwick lets in a bad goal on a pathetic breakaway attempt by the Broncos. Hunwick should've easily stopped that.
Finally starting to get multiple opportunities in Western's end. For most of the game, the Broncos have done a good job of limiting our opportunities to the initial play at the net and picking up the loose puck and getting it away.
I just had deja vu regarding this game. I think we end up losing 2-1 and in frustrating fashion.
Bronco D's stick contacts his goalie, who takes a dive and gives up a goal.
Yeah. If you're going to flop, at least make sure the other team hit you.
Why is Yost so empty, per Brian's tweets? What gives? Friday night, big matchup? What is with student's these days? Is it the economy? Are they occupying?
Student section seems full now when they pass it. But I can't see the whole thing with the TV shots. Rest of the arena looks so-so though.
basketball game maybe?
Do you expect the students to fill the entire arena?...
Another power play for the Wolverines
TIE GAME! Bennett!
GOAL!!! 2-2. Glad my deja vu was wrong.
Ken Holland, Mike Babcock and Kris Draper are taking in the game.
Meh penalty on Hunwick.
Guy's cutting through the crease, Hunwick turns to watch the play, guy goes down - tripping. Ugh.
So the Broncos have, what, a little less than 1:30 of PP to start the 3rd?
1:24sh I think
Pateryn definitely buying into Mustaches for Michigan!!!!!!!!!
Does anybody have a stream video stream?
5 on 3 for 1 second
Shit, another penalty on us.
PK doing well, but can we STAY OUT OF THE BOX, PLZ?
Probably exhausted killing off penalties for 3 1/2 minutes
They turn it over in their end, but we didn't score.
Impressive seond, but we are being forced into penalty killingmode way too much
DAMMIT! On the PK again.
From the radio, it sounds like the refs are doing a terrible job officiating this game. Announcers are calling a lot of these penalties flops.
are these legit penalties or questionable ones? Is there a stream for those of us out in Iowa?
Some legit, but plenty of weak calls.
4-on-4 now as they took a penalty.
What's with the Reebok logo under the neck of the collar?
At the front? Just laces, actually.
And uses that label for all their ice hockey gear.
And they kill off our short PP.
We are playing so sloppy.
Alot more energy from the Broncos right now. Dominating play the last few minutes
horrible goal to give up
Walters?!?! I remember making fun of him relentlessly last year. Boo
The way WMU was pressuring, this was inevitable
Fuck. Balls. Shit. Ass.
Western is the better team tonight, and they seemed to be on a power play for the last four minutes...it was only a matter of time before they scored. Tough loss for Michigan, but they were just out hustled.
watching the last six Red Wings' games.
bacon1431 was close - it was a frustrating 3-2 loss.
Ouch. That hurt
Broncos D played pretty well tonight. Ours didn't (but it hasn't all year). They had more intensity and effort in the third period (partially because we spent what seemed like half of it in the box). Hunwick let in some weak goals. Bad game all round. Let's start another streak at Yost tomorrow night!
You could call 4 of the goals weak, if you want to include Pisellini's bad time to flop on your back and leave an open net.
losing friday night games is a great way to drop out of the top 5
Having awful luck in the last minute against a good team is no way to go.
...end sucked, but was totally predictable. Just like last 6 Wings games (as someone else said a few minutes ago) -- no luck, but hardly earning any either.
I will stop making predictions in my previews, it seems like the hockey gods just want to prove me wrong.
WMU's up 2-1. Student section looking pretty full though. Go Blue!
