Yes. CCHA Championship or bust.
the season has truly begun now
Yes. CCHA Championship or bust.
even worse than that 2010 team. We were 10th in the CCHA just a few weeks ago before getting hot-ish to finish in 7th. We're well out of the at-large group so winning the tournament is a must
Yes, absolutely. Win 2 in Kalamazoo this weekend, then 2 next weekend in Detroit (most likely Miami and Notre Dame, assuming chalk in the rest of the tournament)
this is starting to look more and more like the 2010 run...need to keep working hard
1st period: OSU and FSU tied 0-0 in Columbus
1st period: BG and ND tied at 0-0 in South Bend
Michigan State and Miami start in about 15 minutes in Oxford
Gross. That was some sloppy defense.
turnover at the bluelines are just asking for goals against...Balisy was all alone in the slot for a pass off the turnover when Michigan couldn't get it out
2 quick WMU goals
welp, just like that it's 2-2. Michigan never left the locker room from the 1st intermission.
we're on our heels
Fuck, I turn it on and they score. Off it goes...
turnover at center leads to a 2x1 for Western...snipe to the top corner, glove side...WMU with big momentum on their side now with 2 goals in 62 seconds
have to take better care of the puck since they just turned over a whole period of good work
TV timeout much needed
we don't look flustered as much as it just looks like Western has infinite energy. They're right on the puck right now. Can't get any breathing room
The best way to let a struggling offense stay in the game, turn the puck over in the neutral zone.
Ugh, January Michigan rears its head.
i blame adidas for all michigan woes!
could use more chances like that...good sign coming out of the TV timeout
I was just about to post "just get the next goal and we'll be fine"
I'm a psychic!
And thats why you're a top 10 pick. Sick fake and a sicker wrister for a defenseman
Jacob Trouba is good...rushed with the puck, faked a slap shot and snapped one top corner, high glove...what a great shot
is really having fun doing his Boston accent when referring to Trouba. Not sure why
If Guptill could play like this for an entire season, he could win a Hobey. He's dominant this last month.
Took a deflection in front it sounded like. 3-3
man WMU ties it back up. Racine was screened it looked like
Looks like Racine was just screened and basically got 5-holed
Did Western really steal our goal chant? I mean REALLY?
a shot from the point had to have gone through about 5 guys right along the ice...Racine never saw it, somehow squeaked through...maybe a deflection off Moffie?
With the exception of that 3-4 minutes of terror. It still feels like we've been playing pretty well. Just not getting the bounces this period plus Western capitalized on our mistakes
End of 1: FSU 1, OSU 0
End of 1: BG and ND tied at 0
I wore my maize jersey in the first but felt I should match the team so I put on my blue jersey at intermission. I've changed back to my maize jersey again. We're gonna win!
Merrill heading to the box for tripping
He hit him on the arm with his stick and the guy fell over. If he hadn't fallen over, I doubt that would've been called
Come on, he fell down on his own. What's the call?
the bench called that penalty
but another Bronco managed to block the crossing feed
Tuning in late - what the hell?! Did we revert back to crappy second period play?
It wasn't as bad as earlier in the year, but the first two Western goals you can pin on turnovers. The third was just a lucky tip shot.
where Western was buzzing and we turned it over a few times. They scored 2 goals in 62 seconds. So yeah, rough.
Then the rest of the period was pretty standard. Trouba had a pretty sick goal and then Western scored again on a wrister from the point where Racine was totally screened.
Those few minutes early in the period were killer
Thank God you're here. It wouldn't be a hockey game thread without ya!
Let's Go Blue!
Recovered nicely and dominated play after the third goal, I thought. Really nice shift by the fourth line with about a minute left. No dice though.
The third period is going to feature much butt clenching. It's going to be intense. We gotta start getting the run of play back our way.
We survived the storm. Michigan will win this game.
Little pubescent beard :)
...to say that to his face.
