Video will be made available 5 minutes before the game starts.
...hosting the video?
I paid for it and the video scripts are not responding on either of my computers. Looks like I'll be on the audio feed tonight.
yeah its not working for me either
Sorry if Ied you to a link that wasted your money.
Same here but you have to download the "one vision" plug in to get the feed to work. There is a support button its under there
Well I've already had six beers, so here's to configuring the program on Linux. Here goes nothing.
THIS WORKS http://www.octoshape.com/support/infinite-hd-octoshape-app/ this is the link it takes you too, download, run it, and then refresh the america one sports link

no i had already bought it before I got on here
I'm at the game and live blogging at MichiganHockey.net. Feel free to follow along and chat with others!
Last year, the refs did a terrible job of officiating this game and let the game get way too physical. I except to botch the officiating in a different way tonight.
Can someone post a free stream? ;)
1-0!!! Mac off the faceoff!!
Bennett scores, it's 1-0 Michigan
We want MOAR goals!
BGSU 1, @MSU 0
Dammit, PPG them, tied.
Tie game, NMU scores on the PP. 1-1
Frack, 2-1 them.
I can't wait for Merrill and Serville to return.
Shit, son of bitch. 3-1 them, PPG.
Another PPG, 4-1 them.
F-you John Gibson.
It's not Racine's fault if we keep having a parade to the penalty box. From the descriptions from the MHN twitter feed, our defense is breaking down and NMU is scoring pretty goals Racine can't get to.
That was painful.
Northern came to play like they always do and if Michigan can't match that intensity they blow the doors off us. We can still score 3 goals on this team, they aren't that good.
Im at the game, a couple of the penalties were pretty iffy. I thinkthe refs are trying to keep things in check and over doing it.Still time to makea comeback.
I have a feeling the big ice is messing with michigan too
Just like the Big Chill, we have so much speed that a big sheet should favor us. They aren't executing.
Hasn't favored our PK.
We can haz PPG?
Kevin Lynch!! PPG!!
Kevin Lynch scores. It's 4-2 with another PP for us.
Fuckin' A! Refs evened it up. :P
ARGH! Stay out of the damn box!!
Good job on the PK!
I think it's pretty much established at this point that NMU is the team I'm going to miss least.
U-M on the PP.
Chiasson!! 4-3 now.
Damn, big hit by Trouba, and he's gone.
Edit: DQ, gone tomorrow. Fuck!
He should have kept his head up in the neutral zone, that's not a penalty.
2nd year in a row that the refs have screwed us out of one of our best players for the 2nd game in Marquette
Sounds angering... Except unsupported by facts. Shawn Hunwick just explicitly tweeted that he punched the guy in question in the face last year (look up the tweet, it's outstanding). And while Red vacillated a bit tonight, his quotes on michiganhockey.net do suggest that he's okay with them ejecting guys for those kinds of hits.
MHNet tweeted that the hit was the hardest he has seen since Ortneyer against St. Cloud in the Molly game, and that he had no problem with the penalty. In fact, he called the ejection on his liveblog before the penalty was even announced. I'm going to follow him on this one.
it's probably not an NHL penalty, a few years ago. Nowadays, it's probably something anywhere. Especially in the CCHA, if someone goes down that hard, somebody's sitting the next game, almost guaranteed. You just can't do that, anymore.
it sounds like someone got Kronwall'd. You're right that anything to the head (even clean hits) is likely to draw a penalty these days, it's the number one point of emphasis in every single rulebook I've seen.
but anytime someone gets knocked out that bad, you know something is going to be called, almost certainly a major. I wouldn't have had a problem if they had left it at a misconduct. Unless it's way worse than people we're describing it though, a DQ is too much. Especially given Trouba is 4 inches taller than the guy he hit. Hopefully the conference agrees at least to an extent and doesn't add anything more to it.
Unless I'm wrong. If it was dirty, throw the book at him. It just doesn't sound like it was.
They must have seen something to give the DQ instead of the game misconduct. For reference, this is the NCAA rule on head contact, which is fairly different than the NHL rule:
Contact to the Head
SECTION 8. A player shall not target and make contact with an opposing
player’s head or neck area in any manner (including, but not limited to, with
the shoulder, stick, elbow, etc.).
PENALTY—Major and game misconduct or disqualification at the
discretion of the referee.
The committee reminds coaches and players that the responsibility
remains with the player making the hit to avoid contact with the head and
neck area of an opposing player.
Any contact which directly targets the player’s head and neck area must be
penalized with a major penalty and a game misconduct or disqualification.
HR-62 RULE 6 / PLA YIN G RULES
A player delivering a check to an unsuspecting and vulnerable player puts
themselves in jeopardy of being penalized under this rule.
Officials are to pay particular attention to these examples when applying
this rule. These are intended as guidance and include, but are not limited
to, the following:
• A player that has just released a shot or pass;
• A player that delivers a late hit;
• A player that extends and directs the arm, elbow, forearm or shoulder
to contact the head and neck area of the opponent;
• A player that extends the body and targets the opponent’s head or
• A player that leaves their skates or launches in order to deliver a blow
to the head or neck area of the opposing player; and
• A player that uses the stick in any way to target the head or neck area
(e.g., cross checking, butt-ending, etc.).
As additional guidance, when the initial force of the contact is a shoulder
to the body of the opponent and then slides up to the head or neck area,
this is not classified as contact to the head. This type of action may still
be penalized, at the referee’s discretion, as another penalty (e.g., charging,
they didn't have to have a reason to do anything... Results based charting. The other guy was down for a while, musta been a DQ.
Clean but hard hit. NMU player was down 4 or 5 minutes, wasn't moving his limbs. The refs waited forever to call the penalty too. If he had popped back up, it wouldn't have been a 5 minte penalty.
michiganhockey.net was at the game, didn't have a problem with the call. A hit like that is just not safe.
Looked like he hit the guy in the head. Good call from what I saw live.
We have one shot to tie it up, this is it here.
Less than a second left!!!!!!!
WE SCORE!! TIE GAME!
Let's fucking win this!
Did we tie it up?
steal this and too bad for the Notherns
WOO! U-M PP!!
Great start to OT for us. Some good chances and now we're on the PP
Overtime! What a comeback!
victory! Way to come back in OT and in the shootout.
2 mins left. C'mon guys, cycle cycle, Moffies shot and save.
you're keep ing you money right here in Michigan, plus you're keeping your money away from those Buckeye banks.
M up 1-0 in OT
Sparks stoned. down to one skater.
Win! Go Blue!!
Save! Meeeechigan wins!!!
Huge considering we'll be even more shorthanded on the blue line tomorrow night with Trouba's absense. Needed the two points tonight.
I have cat-like reflexes
I have Carl Hagelin-like speed.
What a way to win our first road game of the year.
Hopefully tomorrow we don't dig ourselves into such a big hole.
If you're listening to the postgame, they have video coordinator and former Michigan goalie L.J. Scarpace in the booth.
I liked his comments on the game and it will definitely be interesting if I can ever actually see the Trouba hit. Sounds like there is some serious speculation whether it was illegal or not. Gongshow.
Great comeback win tonight! Go Blue!
The miracle in Marquette. Unreal. Love this team, so much. Never give up on them.
I completely eat my words on Racine earlier in the thread on pulling him. He wound up winning the shootout.
Tomorrow I want the 3 points though. Want tomorrow to actually go in the books as a W.
Do we still get full points for a shootout win?
No, it's two points.
So apparently the break up of the CCHA has some people ticked, I heard a lot of "Big Ten Sucks" shouts. Once Michigan came back, they started with "F*** Ann Arbor!" chants. Oh, I can't wait to move back to civilization.
They won't be chanting that in 10 years because their program will have folded by then. That little school needs the big boys to survive in D1.
Not so much. They'll be fine.
Buying season tickets with feature games vs Minnesota State, Bemidji State, and Ferris State are a lot less cool than buying season tickets with feature games vs Notre Dame, MSU, or Michigan. A lot of those teams are going to struggle unfortunately
what else is there to do?
There are a number of really good bars, including a great local brewery called Ore Dock. Other than that... not so much.
The die-hards and alums will go. The students will always come because it's something to do before dispensing to the bars. I think you're overestimating how full the Berry is even on nights when Michigan comes to town (Tech is the obvious exception). Losing Michigan, et all will hurt but NMU hockey will be fine.
My comment was more directed towards small school hockey teams in general. Northern may be fine, but what about BGSU? Minnesota State? Lake State? They don't have the fans that Northern seems to have and they may be in trouble in a few years
Come on now...
Heard the end of the game on the radio driving home. What a comeback! Go Blue!
Thanks to all for the updates. Drinking in Bay Harbor for my buddy's 40th, but always keeping an eye on MGoBlog
