He clearly didn't have possession and control, but his stick was touching the puck and he was in Trouba's way. Better to keep control of the game, but not an especially strong call there, IMO.
Michigan Hockey vs Miami Game Thread
Gongshow in full force.
Can't wait for 2013-2014 and the Gongshow will be dead and buried.
At least they didn't score.
Racine may make errors, but he's also made some big saves.
GOAL!!!!!!!!!! 3-2 M!!!!
Thank you Mr. Chiasson, but I would still enjoy more goals.
This. I like.
Just logged in to catch the score; your stream link got me on just in time for UM GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAL.
EDIT2.0: #4 for Alex! GO BLUE
GOAL!! 4-2 M!!
7 minutes left.
And Guptill punches the Miami winger on the Tiger Woods celebration, I love it.
Fuck the dynasty. Really needed this one to start our CCHA season off to a good start. Let's hold on!!!
Does Czarnik (sp) have AFLAC or a death wish?
Dang, Treais robbed of a hat trick.
Is it me, or does Enrico resemble Urban? Hate them both, so maybe that's all it is
I think the power play is the best I've seen it over the past 4 years. So much possession and pressure. Trouba has a rocket loaded on the blue line.
Beat them again tomorrow !!!
Big win. Let's go for the sweep tomorrow night!!
4 - 2
Wonder why Comcast doesn't have tomorrow night's game. Because of football, they don't think it's worth it? I'd record it, if it were on.
Michigan Hockey is the only time that network gets viewers. All of their other programming is local crap that is low budget-sports talk replays from 2004.
They know that Michigan Football is priority #1 here.
So honestly? I didn't think we played that great and we still beat a good team. I'm optimistic.
Thought Racine looked good on pucks he was in the net for, if he can get the puck handling figured out, maybe he's the long term solution.
Trouba is the real deal. A couple freshman mistakes, but that kid is super talented.
They blanked Army 5-0 tonight. Not that that is a measure of greatness, but I figured coming up from the ACHA they'd be absolute doormats. The fact that they appear to be the equivalent of a decent AHA team means they may be able to compete in the B1G way early than I thought
Wait until Michigan plays them. Calling it right now, Michigan will put up double digit goals.
I agree, but at the same time the B1G only has 6 teams. Two of which are perennial powers in Minnesota and Michigan. OSU and Wisconsin are solid as well. MSU isn't good right now, but Anastos isn't quite the train wreck some thought he'd be.
Yeah, by compete I didn't necessarily mean like...finish in the top half of the conference. I meant like actually winning conference games. I expected PSU to go like 0-20 in conference play their first few years but if they're approximately like a mid-level AHA team they might be able to sneak out 5 or so conference wins which is much better than I think most would expect
It's army who they beat. My high school team could blank army 7-0. Wait till PSU plays someone with a pulse.
Great win over an overrated miami team. Hate those bastards, and it's fun to watch their whiny tool of a coach cry the entire time like he is so good at doing.
Can't listen to tomorrows game because of a certain football game on at the same time, but I'll be there in spirit. Apparently Rutledge is getting the start tomorrow per Red on the intermission interview.
Go Blue and Get the sweep!
Just left a charity event, missed everything. Let's get the sweep tomorrow.
arguably Michigan's best player is still in the press box with a fractured vertebrae. This team has every chance to be scary good this season when Merrill comes back. They still have a few things to work out, they need to not have the bad period they've had in every game I've seen so far this year and one/both of the goalies need to get comfortable. But the PP seems to be getting fairly dangerous again, the PK looks like it's still going at a high level, the offense is far more potent that I expected and more, the offense is "clutch" and AJ might even be becoming the go-to scorer they haven't really had since at least Louie Caporusso his sophomore year. They really need to cut down on the goals allowed, but I think they will and I'm reall excited to see how far this team can go.
Read my postgame thoughts here:
scored an unassisted goal for the USNTDPQJP against Minnesota in their 2-2 draw.
how long has there been no touch icing in college hockey?
it's a judgement call on the linesman's part. From the rulebook (Section 27 (g)):
Judgement of first player to touch puck. For the purpose of interpretation of this rule, icing is completed the instant the puck crosses the goal line, unless an attacking player, who is onside at the blue line and with no opponent between that player and the goal line and is clearly in position to be the first player to touch the puck. Icing shall not be called in this situation. This decision by the official shall be made no later than the first player reaching the end zone face-off dots. If the puck enters the goal in this situation icing shall not be called and a goal shall be awarded.
