It's a 6:35 game.
Hockey vs. WMU Tonight
Thx for the correction; any streams CI?
If I find one I'll post it.
What is SD?
directly west of MN and directly south of ND
FSD; correction thanks X2.
May still be stunned by MBB debacle...
(or halfway to hammered, or both)
Di Giuseppe, Nieves, Lynch.
Bennett-Trouba. Racine in net.
Thank goodness fans have this to cheer for after the Wisconsin game earlier. Go Blue! Continue the streak!
Please stay hot Racine.
This isn't a hot streak for Racine. He is starting to see the puck better, the game is slowing down for him. I think he can be the guy.
looked into it buts its $18/mo and like $120/yr. Not worth it for a single game
Also, radio stream isnt working for me. ANyone else?
More like Lawson Too-Lazy-To-Show-Atics
I found the WMU radio feed here:
Just found it have fun.
thanks for the link! i usually get games on FSD on the east coast, but for whatever reason they are showing college softball instead.
Tuned in just in time to see the Phil D. goal.
Edit: May be the best first post in the history of the site. Welcome!
I love you
In Boston, watching on this. Hope it works for y'all [and doesn't stop working for me]. Go Blue!
I have a description on Fox Sports Midwest of "A CCHA Tournament quarterfinal game" and audio/video of the A-10 basketball tournament featuring St. Joseph U and VCU. Nothing says "Midwest" and "CCHA" like a Philadelphia team and VA team playing basketball in Brooklyn.
What is everyone doing out there?
PDG goal I think
Lawson Lunatics chanting "Walmart Wolverines" as they cover up their MSU basketball and Michigan football t-shirts
this comment made my night after the bball game. so true! the wmu students like uofm and msu more than their own school. sad but true.
also funny because they have a Walmart advertisement on the boards there
Way to go boys!
WMU PP upcoming
#gongshow penalty of course. Come on PK
Just able to listen to the game but why. Why take a penalty 5 seconds after a goal????
It wasn't a penalty. Bad call by the gong show
apparently sent it just high
It sounds like Racine is making a ton of good saves
sounds like they're getting a good number of odd man chances
and it sounds like Moffie just missed the net
Just came very close again. Dominant shift by the Guptill/PDG line.
we're still 15th in the NCAA. Seems hard to believe
Totally his doing. Took it all the way up ice, created the shot, grabbed the rebound and stuck it in. That should be a +2 for him
Selman bangs home his own rebound. It's 2-0.
Michigan Hockey making me feel better after watching shitty basketball.
52.9 seconds of powerplay before the period ends
Kevin Lynch takes a cross checking penalty. So 4 on 4 for a while and then probably 5 seconds of WMU powerplay
as rare as it is to say that. He was out of position and hustled over to block a last second shot from the point. That should be worth +0.5
Great dive by Warda to draw that penalty. It was a cross check, but man he crumpled entertainingly.
Sounds like it getting chippy early.
That wasn't a penalty. Lynch had his hands apart, but you could tell he didn't push too hard on the WMU player. It wasn't a penalty, he lost his balance and fell down.
Don't really follow the hockey team closely but would rather they win the conference tourney anyway.
Play well tonight.
Perfect first period. Can't get too crazy since they had a 2-0 lead on them back in January and it didn't end well. Stay on em. Now comes the moment of the truth. The storm aka second period. Survive that and Michigan wins.
My faith in this team continues to increase. It's making me nervous lol
It's been a long day: does UM need to win the conference tourney to make the NCAA?
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.
But it's true
13 minutes left in the 2nd
they lead Miami 1-0 with 11:56 to go in the 1st...lol
they lead Miami 2-0 with 5 to go in the 1st
the 11 seed up 2-0 on the 1 seed in their home barn
sometimes they let them race it down, sometimes they blow it even if someone is about to chase it down, and then there they let it go when Mac wasn't skating after it. I don't get what the rule is supposed to be
that would've been a Not Top 10
2-2 with 6 and change left in the 2nd
no offensive momentum for either team. Way less up and down action.
bullshit offsides call.
WHOOOOOAAAAAA C YA!
Dammit, get the puck deep!
Another bomb. I will miss him when he's gone.
Troubs blasts one and Guptill may have tipped it in...PP goal
WHOOOOOOOOAAAAAAA C YA!!
Michigan back on the power play. Broncos fans are uber-pissed, per usual.
Western was upping the pressure already after that goal. It's gonna be an up-and-down the ice game from here
stupid ass check from behind by a WMU player...I believe it will only be a 2 though
4-3 good guys. Trouba with his second goal.
Can we turtle now and play the rest of the period like a penalty kill, like we did in the '11 Frozen Four game against ND (ntND)?
Here's our chance to put it away.
Come back, Jacob!
Trouba leave after this year?
Someone got cross checked right into Slubowski
The faceoff would naturally come down to our end. That makes sense. #gongshow
How much time is left in the 3rd?
Long way to go
Thanks. Hope we end this Friday right - I need to save my drinking for tomorrow.
99% chance Western goes on the powerplay because that's what always happens when Michigan gets in a scrum
liking all of the contact after the whistle.
What were the western fans chanting? I couldn't make it out
I thought I heard "Walkie Bitch"
It sounded like "Puck you twitch!"
I don't get it either.
Dammit, bad time to take a penalty.
Classic "If the guy was not a magic midget it wouldn't have been a penalty but his head happens to be at [Insert Name]'s shoulder level"
#gongshow....Michigan gets a penalty for a legal hit...unreal hahaha
His arms never raised. Not an elbow.
Best 2 minutes right here guys
Penalty killed successfully. About 2 min left
Western attacking but nothing sustained so far
Slubowski still in net
1:01 left. Let's go boys! Keep battling
1:01 left, faceoff at the Michigan blue like. Slubowski coming out as soon as they get the puck in.
DO IT AGAIN TOMORROW!!!
lead series 1-0, Game 2 tomorrow night...no TV
Great defensive effort for those last six or seven minutes. Great win!
Huge win. Like holy shit this was big. WOOOOOO
Fuck yes! Lets get it done tomorrow boys!
Awesome win tonight, and I love watching Trouba!
Not just because he did well but because we reached meltdown point and he stood strong. Excellent 3rd period. I think he/we may be on to something here
The game tomorrow ?
for me tomorrow--I called the WMU ticket office Friday afternoon and found out there are a lot of tickets available for all the games this weekend (wondering now after watching the game tonight if it's Spring Break already at WMU?). I also found out from the ticket agent that the Michigan Fan section is section #20 with also a lot of U of M fans in sections 18 and 22. I bought myself a pair in Section 18, GO BLUE!
so it might be Comcast 900(?) or nothing
Big win. The boys really locked it down on D after that second period.
I have to comment, after seeing your screen name and userpic: Bobo Brazil was one of my all-time favorite "wrasslers" from my childhood days. I was really thrilled when, back in the early 80's, shortly after moving to the Benton Harbor area, I was introduced to Bobo and got to talk with him for several minutes. A giant of a man (he looked even bigger than he did on TV!), I was surprised to find out that he was still an active wrestler then even though he was in his late 50's.
GAME OVER. Good win for the guys, hope they put them away tomorrow and keep the Joe Louis streak going, and hope to keep the NCAA streak alive as well.
This is a crazy run by this team. Get to the Joe and anything can happen.
Go Blue! Keep on rollin!!
Hard fought win.
Good to get the first one nailed down. Thanks for all the updates. MGoBlog is how I follow many games. I actually enjoy following games this way.
Thanks for the updates. Great win - let's keep the streak going tomorrow!
Anyone have ice time breakdowns by period? I feel like Red went to 4 D for most of the third. I think Serville and Szuma only had two or three shifts.
The box score from MGoBlue.com doesn't show that detail.
Although Szuma has been solid, they aren't comfortable with him out there in the late stages of the game yet. Serville just had a bad night.
College hockey teams don't track ice time. More accurately, they probably do track ice time but they keep the information to themselves--I have never seen a Time On Ice report posted for a college hockey game.
It's not at all unusual for a team to go with 5 or even 4 d-men in key moments of a playoff game like this. If you go back and watch our 1998 NCAA championship game, for example, you will only see 4 defensemen for the first 50 minutes of the game.
...by WSB and Hockey and MBB will get a high seed, despite the loss.
Posbangs to you all; It's Great To Be A MICHIGAN WOLVERINE.
Going up 1-0 in this series was vital. Finish them off tomorrow and shut their dumbass fans up once and for all.
You are an embarrassment. When you cuss out a team of college kids for losing some games and claim to be done watching, you shouldn't just jump right back in once the start winning.
Ferris wins in Columbus, BGSU/ND in OT, Sparty still up (!!!) 2-0 mid third.
EDIT: Matt Rust's little brother scores to end it, ND up 1-0 in the series.
A shitty sports week now looks brighter. I am coming in off the ledge...
Sparty holds on and wins 3-0. Sounds like they got dominated but hot goalies are hot goalies.
If the teams with 1-0 leads win the series, we get Ferris in a semi.
this comment I made during the 2nd intermission
and we did win. Maize jersey FTW. Time to retire the Blue for the season
I upvoted one of your posts....I'm just not sure which one. Maybe both?
I cant tell actually - it's like one of the those Gary Busey posts that fold in on themselves.......
Please make sure you have the correct jersey on for the Saturday game!
