Holy balls.... you have to score there!
Goalie had no idea where the puck was.....We never seem to score on those.
god dammit ot again!
OT hockey...taking years off your life
Going to OT
Judging from the posts, our power play has sucked, and Cornell carried much of the play in the second. Have we just been outplayed this game, or just some suckiness in key areas?
From what I've seen their goalie deserves a medal.
Well survive and advance Blue Let's Go.
Powerplay has been really bad (like 0-7 and a cornell shorty) and then Cornell just clogged the neutral zone for the whole 3rd period. So frustrating but we finally got one in
That was all.
We've had tons of PP opportunities, basically the whole 2nd period, but could not capitalize.
Cornell has also completely plugged the neutral zone do we've had no rhythm.
I hate OT, but considering how I felt about 5 minutes ago ... I'LL TAKE IT!!!
I figured we'd have at least one OT game in the NCAA Tourney. Seems like we always do. But I never thought it'd be our first game. I need a drink so bad right now.
I can't believe we got this game to OT. I had resigned us to a loss with around 6 minutes left.
No call on Lynch. Whew
Ugh, we gotta end this quickly. A long OT, and even if we win we'll be gassed tomorrow. #1seedshouldgettheearlygame
Whoever wins this game is probably going to be exhausted against Ferris tomorrow. Ferris will have played at least 1 less period on 3+ more hours rest
I remember the last time on this board for OT hockey in the tournament... that didn't end well.
I would like for it to end better this time.
Well as slow and lackadaisical as they played that 3rd we ought to have plenty for OT.
My high blood pressure can't take this every night... And IU is my secondary basketball team so I'm dying over here!
UML goal again.
I just want it to end early on either way. I don't want to watch 10+ minutes to see us lose. Just put me in misery right away if that's how it happens. If we win, do it quick so we can rest up for tomorrow.
That Duluth goal last year was brutal. You could see it coming for like 3 or 4 minutes when we couldnt clear the zone.
By the way, have any of you guys seen video of that goal lately?? It's been a while for me
I have all 4 playoff games from last year downloaded and I watched em all when we made the tournament this year.
That game still stings and I don't think it will ever go away
I am afraid of watching it again. Last year I got dehydrated from drinking and a certain salty discharge from my eyes.
Anyone whose final post on MGoBlog appears in this thread will be assumed to have died of a heart attack in the miserable overtime(s) that await us.
I am still alive I want you to know. the scotch is making the screen all fuzzy
Because no one said it, Greg Pateryn made that play on the goal.
Absolutely - great diving play - puck was going to Cornell and he got it to our point man.
I've seen a lot of comments on here about Cornell playing the MSU fight song, and I wanted to clear that up. There are two parts in their fight song that are nearly identical to MSU's (especially the "fight for the only colors" part), but they are definitely not playing MSU's fight song.
Hearing it did get the team (and fans) fired up, though! The music nerd in me had to go check it out.
I wish they had played State's fight song. That would have been grade A, hockey band / student section trolling.
While it pissed me off when I thought I heard it, that is definitely an A+ idea
I really hope their fight song came first. It'd be unfortunate to copy Sparty at anything. Except couch burning, they're really good at that.
that tune sounds like give my regards to broadway
Actually, Cornell's band does deliberately play the fight songs of their opponents' rivals.
teams never seem to do anything the easy way.
So true; UTL shaved a year off my life.
Shocked this hasn't turned into a drinking thread in OT. My gosh, OT is as scary as drowning and the dentist. Drinking shorts aorta ale. GO BLUE!
Three Leinenkugal's Summer Shandy, one Rolling Rock, one bottle of 13.5% Sauvignon Blanc.
Why does the NCAA insist in holding these first round games in 8,000+ seat arenas when you only get 3,000-5,000 people to show up?
the msu song is actually fairly common among college bands, similar to LETS GO BLUE
ALSO IDK IF IM GONNA LIVE THRU THIS
I'm running out of rude things to say about the UMD-goal commercial, this is just cruel ESPN
A whole season hinges on one period. The puck may bounce off a ref, off the crossbar and in. Brace yourselves
What's the point of the camera on the Zamboni? It's cool seeing the tire meeting ice and all, but actually not. About as great as the sky-cam in basketball.
The UK-IU game seems really high scoring. Like NBA level. 70-62 with 12 minutes left?? Holy crap
