For those of you that care (All of you).
Michigan hockey at Northern Michigan for regular season finale
Make that 2-0 now.
They've started good. Let's hope they don't blow it.
Also, Cappy is out tonight after the knee-on-knee from last night Shegos decided to completely ignore.
Down 2-0 to Sabres.
I'm watching the Wings tonight, but I'll be following the liveblog and this thread. Go Blue. And Go Wings. Also, Go WMU.
Game on. 0-0 early 1st, WMU still up 2 on ND. We'll know the ND result before our game is over, so we'll know where everything stands.
Anyone know how serious Cappy's injury is???
Bad enough to keep him out tonight. Red went into traditional hockey injury ambiguity mode, so no one knows anything other than "it's a lower body injury."
We have next weekend off, which will help, and I think if it were serious enough to be season threatening, we would have heard. I hope he will be back for the CCHA tournament.
You're right, next weekend off is great and hopefully if he needs some extra time we won't need him in our 2nd round series and he'll be rested for the JOE!
GO BLUE! Bring it home tonight!
I won't be that guy and drop the daily liveblog in here killing the thread...
...but join it and get some entertainment and information, especially if you don't pay for the tv feed
UM PP. 1st of the game.
BORK BORK BORK!!! 1 - 0 Blue!
Remember if ND loses tonight, then even a shooting loss will give Michigan the cDNA title. We only need to gain one point because we have the tie breaker on them in conference wins.
Another UM PP. Let's make it 2 for 2!
1 - 0 after 1, UM on the PP to start the 2nd.
Shots 15-6 Western after one. 2-0 Western at start of second.
Det 1, Buf 2
Couple flurries for both teams, but still 1 - 0, approaching midway in the 2nd.
Seems like a great effort by the Rust-Glendening-Vaughn line tonight!
Scooter and Glendening aren't the most skilled guys on the team, but they make up for it in busting their asses. If some of that wore off on Rust, great.
Sounds like they let NMU get away with another knee.
Beginning of the 3d.
Come on, Broncos...
UM held NMU to just 2 shots in the 2nd period. NMU buzzed some at a few points, so it didn't feel so dominant, but. Yeah.
Hagelin hates directional Michigan schools.
I called in to complain about the commentators. A few quotes:
"Take your tears back to Washtenaw"
"Someone needs to bring Scooter a tissue"
"What kind of name is Scooter anyway?"
The guy who took my call seemed sympathetic and said they get out of control often, and said he is a hockey fan and understands where I'm coming from. I hope he gets scolded/fired. The guy said he would call.
Update: they just called me out on the feed. If you heard them talking about a guy calling in, that was me.
Wait, what commentators?
It was for the $7 feed from Northern. The WUPT radio guy. He responded saying he hates michigan sports and wanted RR to get a 20 year extension. Basically, he's a total ass, but I could hear his tears every time we scored. I think I actually got to him.
Anyone who actually paid, did you hear him talk about me? It's not that I wanted him to stop being biased, he was just getting mean and I paid 7 dollars to hear this shit, so I had to call. I hope it eats at him.
Sounds like a total bag of dicks. What NMU fans hate Michigan? I mean, mostly, why?
I have no idea. He was being a complete asshole though. It was hilarious because we beat the shit out of them. Scooter was just defending Treais, even if it was a clean hit, and the guy was saying we were "whining about every hit" and jumping to all sorts of conclusions. It was ridiculous. I have the feed, so I'm going to rewind and record what he said. I might send it in to the station, maybe not, I don't know. But I might as well have the evidence on hand. Maybe I'll post it on here.
Matt RRRRRRRRRRUST!!! 4 - 0 and we're off and running!
Are they waving it off?
No goal for Sparks. 4 - 0 it remains.
any news on the ND game?
OT: Red Wings tie it up on a Hudler empty-netter with 50 seconds left! On to overtime!
2:40 left in the ND game
Western up 2-0. I like our odds of winning the CCHA regular season championship
WMU up 2 - 0 still, now 1:46 to go, ND going on the PP.
ND has yet another goal waved off. Less than a minute in that one.
penalty shot for ND 29 seconds left
No goal for ND
Glove save! WMU! Go Broncos!
GOAL! Lynch gets number 5.
Western beats ND 2-0 tonight which puts us in position to win the CCHA regular season championship as long as we don't blow a 4-0 lead :) happy day. Thank you KUHHHHNNNNN for the shutout against ND.
2 - 0 WMU final! There was no magic in the sound of that name, down went the Irish of Notre Dame!
Okay, really? Another waved off goal? Fucking refs.
and the second waved off goal?!
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6... we want... mooooooooooore goals!
Sieve sieve 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!
Our goal gets waved, still 4 - 0. Just gotta hang on to a 4 - 0 lead now and the title is ours!
Not calling off that one! Wohlberg scores.
5 - 0! CCHA CHAMPS!!!
Regular season Champs! On to the Tourney. Go blue!
CCHA CHAMPIONS baby! Hunwick/Hogan combine for the shutout, Hagelin gets the GWG. What a great night for the boys in blue!
Gajic is Magic!!! ... or some more up-to-date version of a celebratory thing like that.
