Almost that time. Basketball is all but over, now time for the important sport (you know, the one we're good at!). It was a lot of fun last night...hopefully even more so tonight. Go Blue, beat the Redhawks!!
Michigan Hockey NCAA Tourney vs. Miami Open Thread
hasn't even started in the BC-Yale game so it could be awhile before ESPNU picks up the coverage...
Online, I guess.
that in the case of the other game running over, they'll throw us on espn360 like they do for games on the main ESPN channels, right?
Argh, hopefully so! Really looks like 360 is not set to broadcast it in any capacity at the moment.
What gives? Not on ESPN 360? I'm not seeing it, at least.
playing Wii tennis to pass the time
Where's Wii Hockey when you need?
(Or Wii COLLEGE hockey...but now I'm just getting crazy...)
best one is the Mario v Sonic winter olympics one... very disappointed in the NHL license titles.... thought that would translate to the wii easy (nunchuck for skating, control bar for slapshots / passing), but NOOOO.
by the way my 8 year old just schooled me on Wii tennis.
I don't see it there.
claiming Michigan at 8, i can only hope
Currently playing BC vs. Yale, but above the screen promises UM-Miami at 8:00.
"There" being justin.tv link, not ESPN360.
very much so. i'm on the search now looking for an alternative
Since my only option is radio...
is clogging the info superfreeway at that exit.
i went to channelsurfing.net and found it there. same stream but much smoother, at least for now
If we win, BC's defense is vulnerable. Also: it's 9-4 BC.
ESPNU has the balls to pull the plug on this one with a 5 goal differential? Probly not... If they don't I blame their coastal bias if they don't
The crawl says the face-off will be at 8:09 ("Coming up next...")
The Daily is at the game again and they are Live Blogging:
I'm getting angry at every whistle here. They need to switch to running time.
Is anybody playing defense in either team?
9-6? Neither team should advance. They should have to play a makeup next Tuesday.
I'm with you.
9-7! holy crap!
This sucks, quit copying Yost chants you damn blue bloods!
I don't care if they originated at Yost.
Century Club members? Never heard a player's favorite drinking game mentioned on TV before.
get on with it
To give you a taste: BC scored from their own zone short handed. It was not a good night for the goaltenders.
but usually they're blowouts. Don't know that I've ever seen a team score 7 and lose the game.
I was wondering the same thing. Umm, any defense on either team? Was the net bigger? Were the goalies playing with small pads and no helmets like the old days or what?
mop your sweaty lip eeew
WOW! Near goal.
Good start for Michigan.
M-Wolverine, can we get the justin.tv link in your post to limit the inevitable questions.
Red Hots....I liked playing them better
Did ESPNU just say that we didn't see Connor Knapp in the CCHA tourney? Didn't we see him in the semifinal after we chased Reichard? Or am I remembering that wrong?
Like the SBNation blogs.
Start the asshole chant now.
The chat feed on justin.tv is akin to ESPN conversation boards. Where are all the stupid people in this world because I don't seem to come across people like that very often?
Already looks like Miami showed up, unlike the CCHA semi.
You can say that again.
OMG HUNWICK! No more chances like that, though, plz
Great save Hunwick!
for the double post.
No more turnovers like that, kthnx
link to watch via internet?
To watch--also on two threads on the front page.
Thanks for reposting it for me.
Good amount of action before our first break. Hunwick's confidence has to be sky-high right now. Nothing like riding a hot goalie (and your favorite Swede)
I love that the Orgy chant came through loud and clear on the broadcast.
Miami's coach looks like Mr. Bean
The ice appears to be garbage again tonight.
Maybe everyone simultaneously forgot how to skate.
I'm tired of every broadcaster sucking on him...
You win again, goal post...
Off sides. Come on...
I can only imagine how they feel.
Too much momentum for Miami right now, but one big play could take it away. Hunwick is staying sharp, though.
Wengels makes me nervous every time he has the puck. I hate that feeling.
Caporusso gets kind of a stupid penalty call, first PP of the game
wow that was weak
The announcers need to get different random facts to spout out. I remember the same mention of how Brown is from Texas and normally recruits from that state play football at Michigan.
Also, "Lebler is a product of Western Canada" x 100
5.4 from the East German judge.
2 for 9 isn't bad on the PP, announcers.
Miami PP goal 1-0 Miami, 7:52 left in the first
Defenseman in front needs to take that man. Shit.
Ok, let's get it back.
Looked to me like a defensive whiff between Rust and Llewellyn. That was preventable.
we won the draw and everything. couldnt get it around the boards and it cost us
Eat it 1-1
WOHLBERG ON THE REBOUND! 1-1
RIGHT BACK AT YA MIAMI
eh fuck yeah!
He shoots, he scores!
Great 3rd effort by Wohlberg!!
YES. That's what happens when you stay with the puck. Tenacity=goals.
Great job by Wohlberg.
Score! Nice answer.
Who's manning the camera? Geez, is this his first hockey game?
This feels like a championship game. Yesterday felt like a warmup for both teams.
Didn't quite end up like a warmup for Miami, even if they did win more easily than it looked. But this does have a higher-quality feel to it, yes.
Wohlberg? I prefer wolfbear
Stellar color guy: dumping the puck to get a line change is brilliant!
He is a Michigan grad who played on the NC team in the late 90s. His name escapes me but was one of the guys doing the tourney selection show last week.
EDIT: Sean Ritchlin played at UM from 95-99 drafted by the NJ Devils but never played in the NHL.
Cannone, Tomisonne, Blasi? (sp) Italian national team here or what??
I love the support from the band and the fans. Sounds like a pretty dominant Michigan fanbase down there.
Apparently goalies are fair game today. Go for it, Tristan, I know you want to
Does anyone know why ESPN360 doesn't have this? This Justin.tv feed is great regardless, I suppose.
But they don't carry it on ESPN360 if an ESPN affiliate plays the game live. Not sure if that is the real reason, but a semi-educated guess.
Cool, thanks. I figured that's what it was.
too many men!!!!
At least we don't have Pam Ward.
And did he just quote the theme to The Jeffersons?
Are the refs not allowed to call penalties on Miami today?
Every time they say "Rico Blase", take a drink. Then anger-vomit.
be shit-faced in 10 minutes.
The Rico suck fest continues.
Every time they call Miami "The Brotherhood."
Thought they outplayed us pretty badly until they scored.
but, what is the significance of the clover with the BB on Miami's sweaters?
Probably Rico Blase.
He was one of their student managers who died in a car accident during a snowstorm. His dad is the GM of the Maple Leafs and Team USA.
Who died earlier in the season.
I hadn't heard of that before. That's pretty sad. I really like it when teams do stuff like that. It shows a lot of team unity.
Does every Swede sound the exact same?
Speaking of Brian Burke... remember when the Leafs were good? When was that, 1990?
'92 or '93 they took out the Wings in I think seven.
somehow causes a gag reflex.
My God, they called a hook/hold on Miami!
2-1 space bitches
sweet PP goal!!!!!!!!!!
2-1 on PP
needs moderators if people are keen.
Don't mention that. The mere mention of that thing caused a quality scoring chance for Miami.
GOOOOOAAAAALLLL! 2-1 Michigan!
Michigan POWERPLAY goal scored by Chad Langlais, all of 11 seconds into the PP, at 49 seconds into the second
is execution my friends
I can't help but notice that he's been scoring a lot from the blue line lately.
Sieve Sieve Sieve Sieve Sieve
It's all your fault
It's all your fault
It's all your fault
It's all your fault
Penalty on Lebler.
Back to the box.
Good save by Hunwick. Penalty on Michigan tho. Come on PK
Hunwick with a big stop but Lebler will put Michigan short-handed after a scrum in the front of the net
Ugh dumb penalty.
Wohlberg misses the net on a short-handed breakaway from near the bench
Damn, get that pass to Bork.
Miami scores after having every player from their team in the crease. 2-2
farkin bowl ship
The whistle would have blown
trying hard to slow the game down? Play a Wisconsin football version of hockey??
How did they not lose sight of the puck? IT WAS UNDER THE GODDAMN PAD.
Way to be original, Miami fans...
Nice job Miami students you unoriginal bastards.
How do you NOT blow the whistle there.
The Michigan Hating Refereeing continues...
Is someone playing "Texas Fight?"
Note to Michigan: make sure to "have your head on a swivel" whenever the puck is under your goalie's pad, the refs are ignoring it and every player from the other team is in your crease. That'll do it.
Oh come on, what the hell kind of a call is that?
Really dumb penalty.
Damn these penalties
WEAK call. Wow.
fing penalty on Glendening...
he checked a guy with the f'en PUCK!
this is the largest piece of horse fuck officiating, jesus christ
can't give Miami the penalties we gave bamidji
please kill this
STAY OUT OF THE GODDAMN BOX.
I don't get to watch a lot of Michigan hockey, but my god do we take a lot of undisciplined penalties
This sounds familiar. Don't you also think Jack Johnson didn't learn anything at Michigan and that Red lets players do whatever they want?
Stupid penalty on Llewellen--wait, it wasn't? That was Glendenning? Check from behind puts us short-handed again after letting Miami go 2-2 on the PP
You'd think the NCAA would be all over having Michigan win this game so there are more than 4,000 people at Ford Field.
With the stupid penalties! We are giving them way too many chances!
These loss of control (for lack of a better term) penalties are really getting f-ing painful.
How often do they whistle that puck dead rather than letting people take whacks at it under the goalie? How many times has a quick whistle taken away a goal from U-M lately? And now we give one up that way? Bah.
that was on us???
Great job of Michigan blocking shots the last two games, but another penalty does NOT help right now
WTF IS THIS SHIT?
Really? Are you fucking kidding?
Another?!?! God damnit!
Where was the penalty there?
Michigan not being able to control our stupid penalties is going to cost us the game. Been our problem all year.
Reason that Langlais is terrible # 22348
He JUST scored. Come on...
Jesus, this is ridiculous. Get some discipline. It's obvious they're calling it ticky tack.
from behind on the boards. Should have been called boarding since it was a dangerous play...
There was at least 1 penalty up on the boards. I can't believe this right now...
How was that NOT a boarding call on Miami just before the whistle blew for the Langlais penalty? I was happy for a second but then quickly got pissed.
And I have no fucking idea...
1 penalty down
Dah, finish that.
Wohlberg stoned on the SH breakaway again, but Miami had better watch that
one of those shorthanded's tonight I think...
2 break aways, 0 goals. He's having a heck of a game so far tho
For Wohlberg...I just hope he gets another breakaway change to prove me right.
Score/time update? Thanks in advance.
2-2 with 10:46 to go in the second. We just went on the PP.
Here's the TV feed: http://www.justin.tv/hockeyfor2day01#r=9FGbO3o~
2-2 10:46 left in 2nd, going on Power Play.
5 on 3 was bs... miami has had just as many borderline hits, we're just not getting calls.
Keep getting the short handed chances though
Scooter does a great job to kill time and put on pressure on the PK. Penalty over
needed one of those shorthanders
Great job on the kill on the second one.
Yay for our PK.
call the game ref
fing time to call one on them...
what they called here for Miami...
HALLELUJAH, HOLY SHIT!
Where's the Tylenol?
2-2, 10:46 left in the 2nd, we're going on a powerplay
PUT LOUIE DOWN!
At least we got one on the blatant penalty in front of the goal here!
Good PK. Now let's kick their heads in! (not literally because the refs would blow the whistle on us)
Hey PP coming up for Michigan!
They even suck Miami's dong when they take penalties.
"Great penalty to take by Miami"
FU crap announcer.
Miami got a freaking penalty! I thought there was going to have to be blood on the ice for us to get a call against them.
Our guy gets blasted from behind... no call.
Ticky tack stickwork, 2min.
I am soo hurting right now. And it has nothing to do with my 4th Sam Adams Imperial White of the night...
Brian was talking about the ice quality in an earlier post. I'm hockey retarded... is there a way to tell how it's holding up by watching the game on TV or something else?
The ice is bad.
That short 5-on-3 and subsequent 5-on-4 we cleared may be a turning point, especially if we score on this PP
HORRIBLE penalty call against Michigan kills the PP
Oh holy hell!
THATS NOT A FUCKING TRIP
How the fuck is that tripping when he HIT THE PUCK?
this is the biggest trashiest piece of shit officiating job possibly ever done in the NCAA tournament
He got the puck! No need for it either had a d-man back
Can we stay on a PP without the refs sticking it to us?
that wasnt a trip, he hit the puck with his stick
this is BAD officiating
Obama gave you a medical plan get some glasses
GET OFF YOUR KNEES REF YOU'RE BLOWIN THE GAME
That's what she said
This is honestly ridiculous.
Slashing on Miami
we go up 4-3, stupid penalty by miami
You'd think the refs are being paid by the call....
everything they are calling is terrible, but this one actually may have been legit
4 on 3 though, really?
And Michigan goes back to the PP, 4-on-3 for another 0:32
The refs are blowing this game...
thats not a penalty. Hold on to your damn stick there. I'll take it tho
I don't know what else you want. That's not allowed in the game of hockey. I don't know how much that you watch but that's a penalty.
it is a penalty. I just hate the call. You're not hitting the body so just hold on to the stick.
Way too much passing, take a shot, guys
No shots--really? Sigh
did Dan Akroyd start doing play-by-play for ESPNU?
Senor Cook mic'd up in the stands for this one??
Is it me or do the passes on the PP seem slower than normal. Is the ice that bad??
these refs are terrible. this period has had no rythm at all and thse calls are a joke
Blase references in the 2nd so far.
Drink, drink, drink, drink...
Rico Blase, the Scotty Bowman of southern Ohio.
This will be an ice?
THEY'RE KILLING A PENALTY YOU MORON.
Surprisingly, ESPNU, icing is negated when your team is on the PK
wow... we got lucky
I'm not a hockey guy, but is it just me, or were none of the penalties on either team necessary?
and are calling ones that they shouldn't. But the slash will ALWAYS get called.
the TRIPPING CALL???
And Burlon trips a guy with no call. I'm confused.
but this is one of the most brutal hockey games I've watched in MANY years...
I don't know about you guys, but I'm really looking forward to receiving my emory cat board.
Yeah, it would be awesome watching my dog eat the entire thing.
Kitty, Kitty, Kitty.
With infused catnip...
I'm curious if it'd work on a person.
into buying the Emery Cat yet? I don't even have cats but the seeing that ad 200 times in the last two days is wearing on me. Might have to order
I have the pedipaws... love the fact I can keep my dogs nails in check with a handheld grinder.
b/c the whole game has been a Miami PP
Dear graphics guy, GET NEW GRAPHICS!
"I like the no call by the officials. Let 'em play"
Shouldn't that be a 5-minute major? Possibly a short jail term? Force Langlais to register as a sex offender?
This ice is horrible.
ESPN broadcasts hockey games like the entire audience are Indonesia pygmies who have never seen frozen ice, much less college hockey
To be fair, you're being generous calling this "ice"
I think it's that the announcers have as much hockey knowledge as Indonesian pygmies who have never seen frozen ice.
Rico Blase #5, everyone take a drink.
Pygmies are most commonly from Africa, sir.
Why does he yell anytime the puck gets within 10 feet of the net?
You should try listening to WTKA. Its ridiculous. You would think that Michigan has thirty to forty quality scoring chances a period.
This guy is from WTKA.
Anyone else getting annoyed that the commentator is yelling EVERY TIME the PUCK gets CLOSE to the NET!
EDIT: Beaten to the punch.
This announcing crew is terrible.
He's if Emrick couldn't enunciate while excited.
the Doc. His overly poor timed excitement is enjoyable at times. This guy is just a dick.
but no boarding. Sorry.
Is hitting from behind a penalty?
