That penalty == not smart. But thankfully, the Miami committed just as dumb a penalty and the PP is over.
Michigan-Miami(OH) Open Thread
1-0 good guys
we're skating circles round em right now...
Looking more inspired after that goal, GREAT pressure in the offensive zone! I hope we can stay consistent and not give away any stupid turnovers, and I hope Hunwick continues to earn his PT, but the news is good so far.
Also, I hope this thread is largely empty so far because everybody else is at the game.
It's good to see Llewellyn on the good side of causing a goal, especially since he'll probably be the root to at least one power play (and subsequent goal) later in the game.
the play-by-play guy keeps calling them the Red Hots?
Definitely not just you
mmmmm Frank's RedHot
that's how they say it with a Canadian accent?
They're skating with a purpose right now and look pretty good. I just hope they can keep it up!
I swear he keeps calling them the Red Hots.
Yeah, I should hit refresh before posting.
the color guy keeps purposefully enunciating "Red HawKKKKKs", almost like he's hoping the other guys realizes it....
I just assumed he was from Minnesota or Wisconsin. But yeah, I noticed it, too.
Sounds like they had a talk during the intermission. Hard, hard emphasis on Hawk that time.
At least it is not as bad as last weekend when Michigan State just threw some fans up there are announcers.
Those were probably students. Michigan does that with some of the olympic sports broadcasts. The BTN is actually looking at using the student programs (radio/TV) to do some of their web streaming games.
ooooooOOOOOOO oooooooOOOOOOO oooooooooOOOOOOOOO!
We made them work for every pass and shot there.
Grew up skating with Tommy Wingles, Wilmette Braves. Had no idea he was Miami's captain. he totally took a dive on that play, good to see a no call.
Also, Michigan looks good and so does Hunwick, he's playing very aggressively thus far, making saves outside th crease,
Lets keep it up blue
great 1st period
1-0 after the first. Looking good, keep it up!
Solid 1st. Need to keep it up in the next one. I have to expect Miami to respond.
for those of you who don't have it on the tube. real good quality too
small college basketball show was on, freaked out, then 5 minutes later it came on...
And was it my imagination but their team's also called Wolverines? Got me quite nervous. But thank Foxness the current feed is much better quality.
I may switch over to the Arizona feed just to avoid Moody Blues and Mo Town music putting me to sleep during commercial breaks.
Once they get the Miami forcheck figured out I think we can open it up a little bit.
Also hoping the refs keep letting them play.
yeah, he did NOT have that hockey mullet growing up
one almost-goal was... stopped by their own guys skate, then cleared at last minute...
You gotta love those hockey gods sometimes.
I remember when we played them in the regular season i wrote about this but Miami has scored 61 of their 137 goals in the second. They have accumulated 477 shots in the second as well.
I am sure with the way Hunwick is playing so far tonight he should not have a problem, only giving up a few rebounds and making some great saves already.
We'll need a few more goals to win this. We're allowing too many looks.
SEE YA! Must capitalize.
Man we've gotten lucky twice on penalty shots not being called. We've got to control the puck better.
I hope Michigan paid attention to the early game where FSU went out ahead and then surrendered 3 quick goals. Even if they did eventually tie it and force OT, it ultimately undid them.
OMG 4-on-1 goal!!!
That was awesome.
That 4-on-1 was fucking amazing passing. GOOOOOOOOOAL!
YES! Terrible line change!
4 on 1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A 4 on 1 goal! That was beautiful!
2 shade motherfucker!!!
Yeah, we should try to get 4-on-1s more often, that'll solve the goal scoring problem.
2-0, right? Can't watch.
Affirmative. 13 or so left in 2nd.
Go after the jugular
SWEEP THE LEG
BTW, MSU is in a tight one with New Mexico St. hahaha
I almost just posted this too, but they still have 11:18 left in the first half. They'll take over by the second.
sieve. your mom just called. and she says YOU SUCK.
LOL "COME ON, YA FUCKIN' PUSSY!"
I love that "you fucking pussy" and "i'm going to fuck your girlfriend" were both clearly audible in the last minute and a half.
After that ice-talk that the mike picked up.
EDIT: Crap, meant mic
Definitely just heard someone yell "F*cking Pussy!" I F*cked his girlfriend"
Oh microphones on the boards at the joe...
Got the system cranked and the boy looks at me when that came through the speakers...
All I could say is, "That's hockey, don't tell your mother."
Come on, Shawn, tell Shireen you wanna show her your new stick
Apparently, Brown driving to the net with "one man to beat" is not anything to be excited about...
Keep getting that kid a new stick!
Get your stick on the ice!!!!!!!!!
MSU still in a tight game with less than 7 min and down 2
Should've been stopped, but time to move on and answer
I take the blame for that one.
I turned it on and 20 seconds later they scored.
It's back off. Carry on.
Goal chant stealers
Cornell fans would like to have a word with you
Did he just say Caparusso was "Red Hawk"? I seriously can't differentiate his pronunciation.
He was even at best with the guy, might have got the pass, but the shooter was smart and hung onto it, let him go right by. Tough to stop from 10 feet out.
I agree i thought it was a bad defensive effort there. Should have just put his stick down to force a left side (goalie left side) shot.
We need to come out like the 1st period again!!
Yeah, but I'd take 2-1 going into the 3rd against the top seed any day
Biggest flop ever by that NMSU player. No contact, tried to fake tears, kept playing it out as if he'd been hit in the balls. When he took the shirt down from his eyes, you could tell he wasn't really in pain.
Seriously, that was embarrassing. He hit the MSU player, looked around, started making funny faces, then went down and writhed in pain for a while.
Huge lane violation
Back to the game that matters
Finally a PP goal!
Was that A PP or a full strength goal?
Way to capitalize on the PP after 1000 passes and a shot or two!
great pass, hit rust in the foot, garbage goals!
it's IF they come. And they're coming baby.
thats what she said
Great job so far tonight... Carl made that happen... Huge goal
Keep the updates coming, cause there ain't no such damn thing as the BTN in New England.
I second this comment. Thanks everyone!
All you need to know: the Wolverines are playing the Red Hots and they need to be more sure-handed
Uhh... maybe you missed this:
Or is the internet tubes not big enough there?
Nope. Missed it indeed.
Put the biscuit in the basket!
Bring on NMU
Most important goal in a 2 goal game is the next one. That was huge.
Also, i realize how TWSS my title is, deal with it. great tip in by lebler
14:26 funny deflection by Lebler off a Rust shot from the right near the blue line, 4-1 Blue
Pretty very slight redirect thru 5-hole.
you guys are quick. +1 to all y'all bitches
1,2,3,4........we want moooooore goals! 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!
13:09 icing on Michigan
Matter much tomorrow, but I and I'm sure a lot of us needed a night like tonight.
Lets keep it coming boys.
CANT BE STOPPED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Back up the bus!!!!!!!! Back it up!!!!!!!!!
12:43: Lynch goal #2 off a rebound, and that's it for Miami's G Reicherd
Pea-nut But-ter Jel-ly?
Let it be called for from the mountain tops!!!
Muppets are probably tomorrow. If I remember correctly, we probably need to win out to get in the tournament. This was a big win, tomorrow is the big one.
This totally makes up for a crap ass day!
REBOUND GOAL 5-1 MICHIGAN!
Miami playing too aggressive, 3 on 2 for Michigan, rebound goal.
Miami pulled their goalie
gotdam beers are going bye-bye quick. Chased the sieve. Fuck him too.
It sounds like it's ROCKIN.
Lynch on a rebound... Off a 3 on 2.
I'm here to kick ass and chew bubble gum...and I'm all out of gum.
One of my favorite lines from the movies, "THEY LIVE"
Duke Nukem 64
12:12 Hogan makes a save, then some chippiness in front of the net, now we're at commercial. Also, apparently Blasi had to go down the locker room runway to talk to Reichard, who's pissed
gotta say I'm not much of an open threader. usually too in to the game to take my eyes of it. However may I just take this moment to say WOO HOO
Hope our players dont do anything chippy/stupid. It's looking like we'll have a game tomorrow, Miami wont. Don't get stupid penalties
Technically there is a game for 3rd place, which will most likely affect Miami's overall seed - so they do have a game that matters tomorrow.
I sit corrected, +1
Still, lets not get a stupid penalty
Miami will play tomorrow in the third place game.
12:06 Miami (not that Miami) penalty
12:06 left, 5-1 lead UM PP
If we win tomorrow, I want muppets!
and I would kill or die to be at the Joe right now.
I'm gonna suggest that as a corpse, you'd probably get less enjoyment from the game than you were hoping.
the former, not the latter.
Announcer just said this is the first 4 goal deficit for Miami
The Red Hots have done well this year
26 goals in 5 playoff games according to BTN, against the goalie with the #1 GAA and the #1 defense
MOOSE/SIEVE MOOSE/SIEVE MOOSE/SIEVE
10:06 Miami returns to full strength, but they do, in fact, still suck.
HOLY SHIT!! Was on the road, got home during 2nd Int.... WOW. Just, WOW. I think I just may have to go to the Joe tomorrow night!! GO BLUUUUUUUUUUUUE!!!!
He's still saying Red Hots.
Maybe he is going to fuck his girlfriend.
I stepped away from the TV for a few minutes and look what I missed.
Don't take this the wrong way, but please go away
I don't get it.
Have another beer dude.
3 goals while you were gone. When things are going good you dont change things
For some reason I took CalJr3000's comment personal... Now I feel pretty stupid.
Next comment you make CalJr3000 is worth a +1.
Red nodding along to Ole, Ole. Nice.
7:10 after some more back-and-forth action, back to commercial
7:10 left, 5-1 good guys
Wish my alma mater Ferris State coulda won and be playing UofM tomorrow. I would have been pulling for Michigan though. Is Michigan in for sure with a win tomorrow?
Auto-bid, sir. Auto-bid.
Winning a conference tournament is an auto bid to the ncaa tournament.
Drugged out trucker!
They made Ro-Tel flavored Barbasol...
When your winning the barbasol commercials are nice.
When your losing the barbasol commercials are nice.
Close shave America.
And when you're kicking the #1 team's butt 5-1, they make you want pancakes.
Watching the stream, it's Moody Blues, Diana Ross, and Jose Lopez events coming to Detroit EVERY commercial break. I'm not a fan of any, it's driving me nuts.
6:30 Miami shot grazes the post after some Miami pressure, but M keeps the clock moving
5:00, 5-1 UM carrying play
8-1 shots in the 3rd
Hunwick makes another save. Meanwhile, someone on the bench hands Hogan a puck and it goes through his legs.
2:40 left, 5-1
2:39 Michigan gets called for hooking
2:23 Miami PPG (slapshot + rebound right in front of Hunwick)
Smart Penalty taken by langlais, but Miami scores on the PP.
Edit: No sarcasm. Langlais stopped a goal with his penalty. It was good
Too late to stop the Muppet march boys.
Garbage time power play goal. Whatever.
1:14 left, 5-2
1:00 remaining in the 3rd period, 1:00
Ferris State can have our sloppy seconds tomorrow. Beat Miami like they owed us money.
0:26 Llewellyn's usual penalty, not that it matters
UM Penalty 26sec left
Llewellyn had to get his penalty minutes in somewhere. He probably realized he hadn't been in the box and took the penalty because he misses it.
It's not the traditional muppets, but it'll do for now
big win, lets do it again tomorrow, go blue
0:00 Michigan wins 5-2 and will face Northern tomorrow at 7:30. GO BLUE!
Happy and satisfied with the Michigan effort tonight. Bring it on NMU.
"Happy and satisfied"...more like ecstatic and pumped!
To quote a wise man, "THAT IS WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT"
The women's BB team doubled Kent in their NIT victory...
Bravo Hunwick. Gosh he looks young when he takes off that helmet.
You may want to keep it on the BTN - there's a "Greatest Michigan Football Stories" program on.
I prefer the HBO special on the Rivalry just because Desmond's quote about doing the Heisman in the end-zone. "Ahh Fuck it." Pure awesome.
As well done as that HBO special is, it's clearly one-sided toward the bad guys. This BTN special is about MEEEECHIGAN.
But agreed re: the Desmond quote!
I don't think that the HBO special is one sided. They spend quite a bit of time of the 1969 upset over OSU. I think that it was pretty fair to both sides, they discussed Bo vs Woody a lot and i think it was necessary to talk about the tough times in Michigan football to build up the suspense and level of upset of the 1969 game.
(Arrrgh, I swear I hit the 'reply' button. Or maybe I drank too much beer during hockey game....)
Maybe I'm exaggerating a bit.... but seems I recall that as far as fanbase stuff... tailgating, atmosphere, gameday scenes, etc., it seems like they were showing more Buckeye stuff. Admittedly, I haven't watched that show since it originally aired.
The showed the same Desmond interview on the BTN program tonight, but instead cut to video footage of the game and dubbed him saying "Ah, forget it." UGH! Come on BTN, grow some balls!
If only Red could coach . . . .
