Live blog: LINK
We score early, and they score right back. Unbelievable!
worst hockey game we played in 20 years!! BG is one of the WORST teams in ALL of hockey!!lost our chance at apossible league championship!
I hate this not being on TV. Other than this game, there's one major conference basketball game tonight, no NHL on anything other than the super-premium channels, and no M hockey. This is one of the worst sports TV nights I can remember in hockey/basketball season.
Also, I couldn't convince anyone to actually go to the game with me, seeing as how it's a two hour drive from my apartment on a perfectly good Friday night.
FSD has FSU-WMU, so why isn't on FSD+? No Red Wings, no Pistons. Sheesh.
Yea, I don't know why this wouldn't be on TV, given the lack of options tonight. I'm reduced to watching Miami play Ohio and hoping they both forefit.
2-1 good guys. Sounds like we're in for a high scoring affair. Hopefully more to the tune of 6-1 M.
They tie it up.
how are the refs? Is it gongshow as usual?
Sounds like we're sleepwalking through the 1st period. Underestimating BGSU. Hopefully Red spits some fire during the intermission to wake the guys up.
Based on what these announcers are saying, it seems like we let up a bit after we scored 2 goals.
Man, we hit the post again!
Rats, FSU scored, up 1-0.
How are we doing in the 2nd?
Western ties it at 1.
Gooooal Broncos tied 1to 1 2nd period still
Tied again. Guh.
Tied at 3 with about 7:30 or so to go
Merrill got his pocket picked, 4-3 them, 1:24 left.
We always play like shit at BG
Jesus. 4-3 BGSU
empty net - face off deep in BG's end
fuck, this is what we get for attempting to blow off this game against these scrubs. typical merrill. he has been shit since the lil bro series. boy i cannot wait to see our drop in the pairwise due to the RPI taking a nice hit...WTF...fuck it I am going to go get plastered
you mean you're not drunk already?
nope, completely sober. Merrill has been pissing me off since sparty.
Come on, man.
Speaking the truth. Merrill has been like a fucking scrub the past two weeks. Hell Chiasson has been more reliable on the blue line.
I have not been this pissed since we lost to Air Force in the first round a couple years ago.
Someone's got anger issues. He's a student athlete. Grow up.
It is fair to call him out for his lazy play on the blue line against Northern and now BGSU. He is old enough to take some heat for not taking the last two week seriously.
Call him out, sure.
But to troll the thread with a bunch of profanity-laced rants that essentially tar and feather a college student is something entirely different.
There's a fine line between being an intelligent fan that can legitimately dissect a player's effort (which, honestly, is not nearly as bad as you think it is), and being an idiot who can't do it without insulting the kid.
haters gonna hate and I am drinking the haterade strongly tonight.
I rest my case.
you are really a complete douche bag
MERRILL WAS BAD BUT HOW DOES HUNWICK GIVE UP 4 GOALS TO A HIGH SCHOOL TEAM??!
I have more than a nagging suspicion that Professor X is just the latest reincarnation of Wolverine318.
Methinks you're right.
Maybe it's a word choice thing, but unless by effort you mean effort without meaning performance, I'm curious to know how Merrill hasn't been not nearly as bad as it's appeared the last few weeks. Not that I have anywhere near the same extent of anger (or mean to excuse it), but Merrill has been less than his normal stellar self for the last 5 games. (Or at least, allegedly tonight, I wasn't at Bowling Green, but the Daily LiveBlog was unimpressed). He's been very directly responsible for two HUGE goals against and if he hasn't been more turnover prone than the rest of the D-corp, he certainly hasn't been much better. Has he had near-brilliant likely goal saving moments in there? Of course. He's scored a few points, too. Kevin Clare's done the same and had a few of those moments last year, too.
The performance of the defense as a whole has been bad recently and Merrill certainly can't shoulder the blame for all of that or even most of that. But I feel like what you expect from him is consistency, that he's going to make the right play at the right time and do it about as often as humanly possible and right now he's horribly inconsistent. In a sense, even though he's probably still one of the best performing defensemen of the last few games, he might be the worst, because of the lofty expectations. If he hasn't been "bad" by the strictest relative definitions, I think he's very obviously been "bad" compared to what he expect from him. And for the record, I don't think our (or at least my) expectations are completely unreasonable, because he fulfilled them and more for most of his career.
I know I pointed to the goals he was responsible for, specifically, as part of my argument, and I understand even the best defensemen are going to be made to look foolish as a forward scores, every once in a while, if it was JUST those two bad moments, I probably wouldn't be typing this, but honestly, I've felt straight up uncomfortable for the last couple games when he's been on the ice, like it was our third pairing out there instead of him and I don't like it.
See, this is how you do it.
Shit piss fuck cunt cocksucker motherfucker tits fart terd and twat
and i have to say, i hate the hockey team. I know it is the only sport BGSU has every one a NCAA National Championship in, but damn the team last in last place every year in the CCHA while i was in school, but yet they would beat Michigan every damn time in BG. Shit pissed me off, I would have to hear it from my roommates (Ohio fans) for the next week. Fuck this sucks.
giving up 4 goals to the last place team is unacceptable.
How the hell does this happen? 4 goals against Hunwick? Bowling Green? What the fucking fuck.
and maybe knock some sense into the knuckheads along the blue line than lose in the tournament. WMU/FSU in OT right now, if FSU gets even a point, this game matters not so much. The RPI hit will suck. Like, a lot. But hopefully they can make it up with a nice run through the CCHA tournament.
Wow. I can't say anything else except I'm fucking pissed off.
It's one thing to lose the conference championship, if ferris would win and Michigan would have won. It's one thing to lose it over something you can't control. But to lose it to the worst fucking team in the conference, in the fashion that they did. It's unacceptable.
I think Michigan took bowling green lightly. I'm just very mad right now. western and ferris state are in OT, western is on a 5 minute PP. I hope western gets swept.
I better see a BIG Michigan win tomorrow. Michigan needs home ice. They need 1 point. Get it tomorrow, and worry about the conference tournament.
Just win. Kick bowling green's ass tomorrow and put fear into the other teams around the conference who might play Michigan.
