Game is at 4:35. Though I'll accept the 3:35 since I'm in Chicago.
Michigan - Miami: Open Thread
So am I.
Beat Riley Barber.
Let's make it a REALLY good day for Michigan sports.
Is the game on
UM Student Radio broadcast here: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/university-of-michigan-athletics
hells yeah its PP time. Let's get it
eh not much doin on that PP except for PDG's chance.
But some good chances. Don't mind the pace and action so far.
LET'S GO BLUE!!!
Let's Go Blue! Beat Miami!
C'mon Michigan! Make Rico cry!
bad TO in our zone, but we escape
If he didn't get enough praise, Miami is trying their best to keep Czarnik off the ice when Copp is out there.
WHOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAA C YA!
Michigan back on the powerplay.
another PP, hope to get some better pressure this time around
COME ON BOYS, TAKE ADVANTAGE. TROUBA LASER PLS.
Miami knocks off their own net, no call.
PP looks good, but THE DYNASTY is playing solid D
penalty on Selman, PK time
Sounds like Racine is playing well thus far.
great PK, Miami never really had a chance to set up much.
WHOA, trickler past Racine and nudges the post. lucky for M
WHOA, trickler past Racine and nudges the post. lucky for M
holy schnikes that was close. Of course Rico crying for a penalty that we knocked the net off.
Oh, sure WE knocked the net off, but you didn't.
Listening to the radio broadcast, and while talking about the basketball game billy trainor called mcgary a beast. Awesome
WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAA C YA!!
come on, man. Everytime I see this I think we've scored.
Another PP. Seriously boys. Convert this.
another PP w00000 but only 8 secs left, so start the 2nd with 1:52
Fresh ice for the remainder of our PP. Still have a chance to get the first goal.
0-0 end of 1st
Pretty even period. Somewhat shaky Racine thus far. Better than shaky Racine, worse than surprisingly stellar Racine from the last month.
1) Give the puck to Trouba
2) Let him crank it
has the B10 committed to a tournament format and location yet? Schedules released?
Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, MN. All 6 Big Ten teams, single elimination format, March 20th-22th, 2014.
So they're going to have a day between each round? That's not as bad as I initially thought.
Some further information:
Top 2 seeds receive byes, winner of the tournament receives an auto-bid to NCAA tournament. Tickets for all games are $80 for upper level/$130 for lower level/$160 for club level.
Also, tickets go on sale Monday (this Monday Mar. 25th)
Geographically I agree, I'd go for something like, I don't know, Joe Louis. However the WCHA tournament is going to be going on over the same weekend, so I don't know if they did that to build interest/increase ticket sales or something like that.
That makes sense geographically.
Not great shots.
Miami's PK looked pretty good, just flipped the game on.
Argh, penalty on us.
Kill. Kill. Kill.
SHORTHANDED GOAL MICHIGAN!!!!!!!!!!
How was he totally unheralded?
Copp broke his collarbone playing QB at Skyline last year.
GOL GOL GOL
It's Copp! 1-0!
Only Miami's 2nd allowed shorthanded goal all season.
A thing of beauty
1-0, nice. Keep on going, seems like they are out skatting them.
Used to be a Copp.
1-0 Michigan with 12:59 remaining in the 2nd Period
GOALLLL MICHIGAN, Trouba to Copp!
Copp, 2-0 U-M!!
JMFT! (and Copp)
GOL GOL GOL
It's COPP AGAIN!!!! 2-0 On a beauty of a feed from Trouba!
What a feed by JMFT
WE WANT MOAR GOALS!
I am hyperventilating.
It's Copp again. 2-0
is there a stream anywhere?
GOALLLLL AGAIN MICHIGAN!!!
MOFFITT 3-0 MICHIGAN!!!
GOL GOL GOL GOL GOL
Moffatt, 3-0 U-M!!!
Miami is getting run over by a freight train.
Another goal 3-0 go blue
WE WANT MOOOOOAAAARRR GOALS!!
BEAT EM DOWN.
GOALLLL AGAIN HOLY FUCKING SHIT
SHADES OF 2010 GENTLEMEN!!
4-0 this is crazy
GOL GOL GOL GOL GOL GOL GOL GOL WOW
TREAIS! 4-0 U-M!!!!
WOWOOOOWOWOWW 4-0 MICHIGAN!!!! AJ with a goal!
Holy shit 4!
Holy crap. This is amazing
Are you kidding me??? 4-0, I love it!!!
We want ALL THE GOALS!
Good grief. Save some of this for tomorrow, boys.
Good time to be playing, by far, the best hockey of the year.
Jeff Jackson is twitching right now.
WE WANT MOOOOOOOOAAAAAAARRRRRR GOALS!!!!
(Hey, it seems to be working!)
So...I was behind on Dvr, decided I probably didn't miss much, just hit live, what the hell...and then it's 4-0...wow
Don Lucia is pacing in front of his TV right now.
WE WANT 5!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wow, Guptill. This is unreal.
AHHHHHHHHHHHHH SIEVE SIEVE SIEVE SIEVE AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Thx for the updates!!!
5 minutes ago it was 1-0 UM
Now it says 4-0
A goal and an assist for AJ Treais today, he needs 2 more to reach 100 points for his career.
NO. WAY. 4-0?!?!?
So much game left, just ocurred to me we scored 3 goals in approximately 2 minutes of game time or something crazy like that. Amazing. (Or is it a-maize-ing?). Damn, boys. Nobody is hotter in the country than we are, just in time too.
We're That Team You Don't Want to Face in the Playoffs.
how the f did i miss 4 goals?
Post b-ball blackout?
Go freaking Blue!
I went to the ferris state game a few weeks back and really started to get into college hockey. Best. Timing. Ever.
Yeah, college hockey owns.
sakes, wholly and heartily apropos.
Dammit, they score. 4-1.
Miami on the board with 2:46 left in the 2nd.
Hopefully that goal will re-focus the guys because they have been coasting since going up 4-0
Can't stop em all. Get it back boys.
*edit: found a weird link to a stream and now it doesn't work!
WHOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAA C YA!!!
Curious what the atmosphere there is? Are there a lot of fans and studnets (popped over from Auburn Hills?)
PS huge PP, as long as we don't give up a shorty we take a three-goal lead to the third
Damn, hope Trouba's OK.
make them pay for that
Still on the PP.
"Enrico Blasi is just screaming at the officials...that's typical."
The radio anouncing is the best -- "Rico Blazzi is just screaming at the officials.... That's typical"
Got a little sloppy after the fourth. Oh well. No major fuckups and we're playing tomorrow.
Thanks for all of the updates guys. Really helpful.
What's going on? why would he be screaming?
There's a hockey game going on. That's why Rico is screaming.
Rico gonna Rico.
He thinks there should be a penalty against us for some reason.
I have the audio but it seemed like Michigan was on the recieving end of some cheap shots at the end of the period.
ha ya, Rico = dick. Knew that one.
Score is 4-1 Michigan, end of the 2nd period
4-1 Michigan, end 2.
Only 10 sec left in the 5-on-3, then another 56 sec of 5-on-4.
Do they have to win the ccha to make it to the ncaas? Been outta the loop for awhile
Yes, I believe so.
You bet your sweet ass.
They do indeed. FSD put up a stat that pretty much says it all. Through the first 30 games, Michigan was 10-18-2. Over their last eight they're 7-0-1.
No. Michigan is ineligible for an at-large bid. If they do not win the CCHA tournament, they will have a sub-.500 record, and a couple years ago the NCAA put in a rule stating that no team under .500 is eligible for an at-large bid.
CCHA Tournament championship or season's over.
PP GOAL MICHIGAN!!!
Guptill, PPG! 5-1 U-M!!!!!
Great day to be a Wolverine!
Every day is a great day to be a Wolverine
Keep pouring it on!
Time to get nervous about Notre Dame tomorrow.
EDIT: time for Notre Dame to get nervous about us.
Do this next year, the whole year, Guptill.
Do it tomorrow!
First time Miami has given up 5 goals all season.
1st time Miami gives up 5 all year WOW
WE WANT MOAR GOALS (TOMORROW)!
Filthy goal guptill, filthy goal.
there is a stream for tomorrow's game?
I'm inclined to say "higher" because it's on FSD instead of FSD+
I'm told guys are diving all over the place to block shots.
With a 5-1 lead.
The streak is alive.
Crap, they score. 5-2.
We can do it
Man, the last time I saw Miami get bombed this badly was in "Invasion USA."
Rico Blasi whines because it works
Damn it, hurry up clock.
Let's not count our eggs before they hatch. Miami still be a scorin'
Another penalty on Moffie, Miami on the PP
ARGH STAY OUT OF THE DAMN BOX!!!
Another penalty to kill.
Getting reckless here, gentlemen.
That was big, don't want to make things interesting.
Yeah I'd rather keep our 3 goal advantage (or add to it, I'm open to that too). Good PK.
Wow, Racine with a huge save there.
OT here, but I just read that Fox Sports just fired Larry Murphy a couple days ago.
And there is a #bringbackmurph movement on twitter and facebook, as well as on online petition.
Was it because of the glasses?
No, hot dog abuse
Stupid, stupid penalty. Too many men on the ice. Terrible change.
fuck too many men
No trip and then a too many men on Michigan. Are you kidding me, gong show?
If we had 7 players on the ice they wouldn't have noticed.
less than 10 to play
Merrill had a really good save getting the puck out like that.
GUPPY TWO TIMES.
Guptill!!! 6-2 U-M!!!!!!
6 to 2
HOW MAI ASS TASTE
6-2 baby. Somewhere in Detroit, Steven Summerhays wonders what he did to deserve this. Bring on the Irish.
Almost #7 there by Boo.
That's a gutsy deke to try with a guy right behind you. Would have been nasty.
Moose. Sieve. Back up sieve.
One got stuck in the netting last year when I was there. Resulted in "Goalie. Bear. Moose. Sieve."
for tomorrow boys
Their coach has a face you just want to punch, doesn't he?
about the most polite thing I could imagin doing to Ricos face is punch it
Holy shit, did he get away with that?!?!
So all we need now are 6 recruits willing to commit today to make this the best day ever yes?
if we win the Mason Cup tomorrow, we should trash it and spray paint B1G on it like the old nWo New World Order
Nah. Just put a "Berenson" plate over "Mason."
Can we make the tournament with an at large bid or is that not possible?
It's hard to understate how very much we sucked the first 2/3 of the year. If we lost tomorrow we will be under .500
Easy math then. Just win baby!
Impossible. If we lose tomorrow, we are sub .500 and sub .500 teams are ineligible for NCAA tournament.
How sweet would it be to take the last CCHA title and preserve the playoff streak? I can't wait until tomorrow's game.
Best day of sports since breaking the streak against OSU last year. It seems stupid to care about the athletic pursuits of 18-22 year old kids, but I can't stop smiling this afternoon.
This is exactly how I feel - I have been grinning all day. It is just not the wins but the nature of the wins.
Beat the Irish!
Haha, game is going several minutes longer than I had set my TiVo for. Glad it didn't matter.
WIN THE GONGSHOW!!!
Michigan is 8-0-1 and streaking. Notre Dame is 4-0 against us this season. Final CCHA title and an NCAA tournament berth on the line. Couldn't have scripted it better.
LET'S GO BLUE!
Go Blue! Beat the Irish! Keep the streak alive!
Utter dominance by everyone wearing the block M today. This next game couldn't be more perfect for motivation, either. Do not let ND complete the sweep in our last season playing them. If we win tomorrow, how pissed is the 1 seed in our pod going to be?
That would almost certainly be Minnesota. And it would be an awful draw for them. Still quite winnable, but a hot team loaded with NHL talent is not a typical #4 seed.
Don Lucia roots for ND anyway, but he'll be yelling extra hard tomorrow.
some Hockey Muppets?
*knock on wood*
Wow, I've been away from the internet today and nervous to check on this game. Shit, that went about as well as it could have. GO BLUE TOMORROW!
What time tomorrow?
