Hunwick... he's so small!
for the stare down punk he put on the UND fans after scoring
Get Hunwick some waffles!!!
Big time brass ones by Scooter going straight to that same corner to the classless UND fans that flipped off our boys on the first goal.
perfect timing - go blue!
I wonder what they will do with all that size and skill now?
To north Dakota! Hail!
Ohio is what they should do....
I hear Taco Bell is hiring in Asscrack, North Dakota.
You, sir, just won the internets.
The 1st pic looked great on the App too...it was a close up on his tear dripping eye....
New drinking game - take a shot for every shot Hunwick took tonight. Have to finish all 40 by puck drop on Saturday.
This made me bellow with glee. Plus one to you, good sir.
I'm taking a shot for every UND superlative from Melrose. Not sure which makes me sicker
God bless Hunwick. God bless the Wolverines!
HAIL! What an amazing defensive perfomance!
What a game. Scooter Vaughn FTW. His name and stare down at the end was legendary.
+5 for Moffatt did anyone see his cele coming off the bench at the end of the game?
Hunny played unreal what a performance and a great strategy by Berenson to shut them down in the neutral zone and taking away the middle of the ice
Anyone have the picture of the boy crying?
I predict that image will prove to be useful for years to come. It works on so many levels!
Epic game, great tension throughout. The first goal was fantastic. Wow!
Isn't that a girl's name
7 pm Saturday? :-)
i went by the front page preview. fixed though, thanks.
HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL YES. GO BLUE!!
Mad props to whoever it was that dove head first to block that last rebound, leading to the puck going out for the empty netter. Summarized the defensive effort that was put in all night. A thing of beauty!
What an epic game !! I <3 Hunwick.
Crazy. Awesome. Wild. That was amazing...could barely watch the last 10 mins. Great gameplan. When and if Michigan wins the title...Coach Red for pres???
Great stuff...go blue!! Beat Minnesota-Duluth!!
Hunwick 4 Prezident.
Said he'd have to stand on his head before the game and did he ever.
the Battle of Helm's Deep as a hockey game.
Thank God we had the hobbit on our side :)
Courtsey of a retweet by @MGoShoe:
I thought I saw that and ESPN was not going back to that angle after the goal. Excellent catch!
Gotta love Caporusso giving it right back.
Sort of wish Caporusso hadn't done that but whatever....it couldn't have been more obvious that M players were hearing it loud and clear all evening long from that corner from some wannabe tuffguys.
he plays on Saturday after that.
I didn't know he could do that with the gloves like they are...a little disappointing but I understand the response.
Here's a transcript of what Louie was saying: "Golly gee willikers, Scooter, super goal!"
Feel better now?
I agree, but with hockey gloves it's not as noticeable. I don't think I would have noticed if the poster hadn't called my attention to it, and I certainly didn't see it live.
In other news, HHHHHHHHEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLL YYYYYYYYYYYYEAAAAAAAH!!!!
The way I see it, Caporusso still owes him one more - he only returned the favour for the right hand.
Gotta get the left one in
This calls for a coupla drinks. I'm reachin for the top shelf tonight!
good stuff early. Wild Turkey 101.
I'm not sure if I was seeing double or if Hunwick learned the secret of bi-location. Either way, I'm happy with the outcome.
Do yourself a favor, and get some Wild Turkey Rare Breed for the championship.
Went with the Scotch after the first goal and it carried me through!
Gotta love a great goaltending hobbit! We should demand a Hobbit Muppet!!!
see us get middle fingered after each goal! It was like Breaston vs. ND (YTND).
Or, for a more recent Notre Dame football example, Denard vs. the ND band member
Hail fucking Hail!
Am I allowed to say that?
I think the guy was trying to show him how many goals we had scored. 1, 2 we want moreeeeeee goals!
Judging by what I saw on TV -- and have seen on other sites' boards (Yost Built, for one), the ND fans are somewhat...err...uncouth.
But hell...what else is there to do in North Dakota? Nothing now! HA!
It's North Dakota. Honestly, what did you really expect?
Hunwick for emperor of the Hunnick empire!
His last comment was, "It is very difficult to lose a hockey game and have your season END!"
The last word was a pregnant pause and full of bitterness
Wow, that 3rd gave me more than a few heart tremors.
Hunwick was great, but the d in front of him was tremendous, absolutely outstanding.
One more! Go blue!!!
I think I now have about 42 stomach ulcers... but that was a heck of a victory! It's great to be a Michigan Wolverine!
that is all
Get the fuck off my ice. - Shawn Hunwick
+2-0 to you sir.
'Tis a great day to be a Michigan fan!
He said the best team doesn't always win. He mentioned the '97 team that everybody in hockey knew was the best team but got upset.
He said this team is the easy team to coach.
He said the line that had 16 goals between them outscored a line that had 70 goals between them.
Red was our secret weapon in this one. Only a secret thanks to Melrose jerking off to the Sioux all day today. He is UNBEARABLE to listen to, I almost had to mute it. I lost track of the number of times he went back and forth between whether M wanted to play an up-tempo flow type of game or a grind-it-out game.
Also Gary couldn't seem to look at the correct side of the score sheet during either game tonight.
Just to add something: Red has maintained that stance- the best team doesn't always win- for at least 12 years. He's said it after losses, said it after wins (in the NCAA tourney), etc. He's not only right, he's consistent. But it's Red- it isn't like you'd expect him to be anything else than completely, unwaveringly principled. And it adds force to him saying it on a night like this. What a wonderful victory!
I'm naming my kid DeShawn Robinwick and there is nothing anyone can do to stop me.
"This is a good thing. Every time I attend Michigan hockey in a championship game (CCHA tournament and regionals) Michigan has lost."
Kindly stay home, please.
You have a pretty awesome wife, frankly. But you already knew that, I'm sure.
Finally, some payback for 2006 and 2007.
Phenomenal play by Hunwick tonight overshadowed what was probably the best game of Rust's career.
I like this post-
A tweet from USCHO: This was the first shutout in a Frozen Four semifinal since 2001, when North Dakota beat Michigan State 2-0.
Leave it to the Spartoons to have 8 pages of discussion for Michigan playing in the Frozen Four semis. Any excuse to watch Michigan play. Any excuse at all.
Well, cut 'em some slack: their favorite team was playing tonight. They lost, but the cool thing about being a Sparty is that you get a new favorite team in every round! Their second-favorite team never even made the tournament.
Or maybe it was the "Racist Mascot" chant.
I love our hockey fans.
Hail to the Victors. Hunwick, FTW.
Nice work Scooter.
any chance this gets put up on BigTenTracker????
Just got back from the game.... fucking ridiculous!!
Tons of NoDak fans as expected. Hunwick was unreal, as was Merrill. Merrill is clearly the best player on the ice. He dominated the SIoux forwards.
Time to rustle up some championship game tickets!
Just got back from the game as well. Thaaat was awesome. Sioux fans were pretty quiet the entire game, except for on a random faceoff in the 2nd period. I would have thought they would have been louder considering they were 90% of the crowd.
I have been watching hockey a long time, and that was one of the best overall team defensive games I have ever seen! WOOOOO!!!!!!!!! Every player was busting their ass off on defense, sacrificing their bodies to block shots, just plain unbelievable! WOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was never so nervous in my life, that was so damn epic, all of us students were basically in one huge jumping mob of hugs when the empty net goal went in....I cannot believe I have the chance to watch them play for a National Championship on Saturday....EPIC!
also: WOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! 3 DOWN 1 TO GO!!!!!!!!!! WOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!
Don't watch much NCAA sports not named football or basketball but I will try to tune in Saturday for the championship game.
Fans were dickish, but doesn't dimish their team. The Fighting Sioux have almost as much Hockey history as we do. That said, time to start focusing on Saturday. Can't think of anythign worse than 2nd place.
