Student Radio Station WCBN Sports Deparment is broadcasting the game via Ustream here. We are biased as hell but we know Michigan hockey
Michigan - Penn State: Open Thread
20 minutes to puck drop and this place is a ghost town. Hopefully it starts to fill in quick. 6:30 games = poop
I will start to worry about making the tournament. If we lose a game, I will be very concerned
It's kind of terrifying that I have the most faith in Lohan of all the non-Mac blue liners.
Over/under for how many times we are reminded that Penn State's first Big Ten win was against us: 10.5
Who's daring enough to take the under?
Also, let's hope we get Nagelvoort tonight and not Zagelvoort
They're not as bad as their record indicates. I've watched them a few times this year and they always play hard and stay in the game. Gadowsky is probably going to have them pretty good in not too long
How did the linesman miss that offsides???
Also PSU was courteous enough to even it up for us
Ref was standing right in front of it and didnt see the puck go over the blue line...
NIeves finally scores!
Also I enjoyed how DeBlois just tagged Boo with a pass before that goal
Alright, all of our NHL draft picks who struggle to score are scoring tonight. Guptill and Moffatt are next
PDG made a really good play on the back check to set up that transition opportunity. Glad to see him get rewarded with a goal.
Chucked one in front and PSU got the rebound. That's like 3 goals within 90 seconds
Jesus theryre scoring faster than I can post
I never get used to how many girls are in the hockey student section. I always think it's a dude-fest but then you see us on TV and there are a lot of females in there
A lot more than the maize rage it seems like
Should've been 2-2 but PSU missed the net
They know they can beat us unfortunately
but I am starting to miss playing teams like Lake State, Alaska, BGSU, etc. It just feels like Michigan hockey to play them
Lake State I didn't mind, but I hated the trip to Alaska and Northern Michigan. Trap series all the way.
PSU is closer to tying it than we are to extending the lead
Beautiful beautiful assist by Copp. Goal by Motte
Nicely done, boys.
Copp fanned on that at 1st too.
Good to turn on BTN and hear Joe Beninati do the game. He does the Caps games on TV 'round here.
It was more even than I would've liked it but 3-1 is 3-1
A lot of really weird bounces off the boards tonight. I've seen at least four pucks take really odd deflections
we are offsides so much tonight. WTF is going on there?
And they somehow lead the league in shots taken? Seems strange. They must be getting a lot of credit for just chucking it at the night because they aren't getting many scoring chances for their shots
Wouldn't be surprised if Gadowsky is just coaching them to put it on net at all times
Ohhhh the good old hockey game
What is he doing. Led right to a scoring chance
Lohan has been solid, but we're still getting turnovers from the usual suspects.
It's been brutal watching us struggle to clear the zone against Penn State of all teams
I kind of hate that Penn State is playing us this close at home
Michigan finally starting to possess the puck like we should be able to. A lot of time in the PSU zone right now
Sweet you guys
I might hate sports. So frustrating to watch Michigan hockey the last few years. Enormously talented teams just lolly-gagging around on the ice
Talented on paper. I have yet to see any real development from guys such as PDG and Guptill who have never developed into the stars I thought they might be after their freshman years. Maybe they're just not that good.
I watch this Penn State team composed of a lot of ACHA-Division 1 hybrid players and I see them out-hustling a team made up of NHL draft picks. You can see that Penn State "wants it" while our guys always skate around with a deer in the headlights look
"Coach he's trying to take the puck from me! What do I do?"
It happens time and time again. We're never the aggressor. We just skate around and hope something happens
Or maybe Red is just getting close to the end. It happens. He is 70.
Does anybody know what the words of the c-ya chant are after ski-poler?
That was a really weak goal Naglevoort allowed at the end. Ugh. Need November Naglevoort.
My section just won free curly fries you guys! WOO
Oh and I won a free t shirt! KICK ASS
Let's put it in. Penn State is probably going to score again so it would be prudent of us to score more
That was bad. De Jong tries to bandhand the puck up the boards all the way from the corner, huge chance fo PSU.
This is pathetic.
Penn State goal. 3-3
Just leave and go to the ECHL already. It's what you want. Lazy ass play
This is shit
Guptill must drive Red absolutely fucking nuts.
but rarely looks like he cares. If he had the heart of a Copp or Compher he could be All-Conference or possibly even All-American.
He checked out after his freshman year
Have struggled second half. Zach played that second goal like it was warmups. Cross ice pass was so slow,mad all day to get over
Lack of energy from Guptill
Guy god enought to make the NTDP is a regular scratch now.
Losing to Canadian colleges, RIT at home and PSU. No guaranteed wins with this team
Kile barely touched him.
Give me a break
Nearly got us a shorty, drew a penalty instead
Looks like the Kile's and the PSU player's feet got tangled a bit and Kyle BARELY touched him as he went down so it looked like it was a hard check to the back.
Wouldn't hurt if they showed more than 1 replay though.
but basically the same thing that Kile got called for so way to keep it even refs
What in the motherfucking hell...
thank goodness for that
And just when I trash talk you, you come through for us. I forgive you for now
2:02 to go
Boo, PDG, Guptill....Moffatt is destined to get an empty netter here
for fucking fucks sake
Penn State goal with 4.6 seconds left. Go figure.
Fucking Penn State Hockey
Fucking Michigan hockey is more like it...
Being a bit cocky. This is PSU
This is fucking laughable.
Two Penn State forwards in the right corner, Mac Bennett doesn't look and throws the puck right at them.
Playing Penn State we've now given up 3, 4, and 4 goals in regulation. They're like damned kryptonite to Nagelvoort
Red some questions in the post game press conference tonight
Kevin Clare is the worst. Hopefully he's benched tomorrow, but Red had him out there late, sooo
This team is just like all the other Michigan teams of the last 4-5 years. There's like maybe 4 or 5 guys on the team who act like they give a shit. Kind of looking forward to the staffs retirement. This program is becoming the Miami football or Pitt basketball of college hockey
Or Michigan football of college hockey?
Bennett's had a rough game.
Sweet clearance, Mac Bennett
Sorry Red, but this is it. I'll be forever grateful gor what you've done, but with all this talent we dhould be destroying psu. This can't keep happening. We need someone new.
Tiny Jesus coming back to M?
This team wasnt ready foe this game. Mentally weak.
Holy fucking shit fuck
Do we have walkons that we can play tomorrow?
There goes the season.
It's over. This is about as bad as losing to BGSU at home. Maybe we'll make the tournament, if we do we'll just lose in the first round. The staff is over the hill and needs to retire sometime soon.
2 wins both against us.
Annnnnnd we're back to 2012-2013 Michigan Hockey.
This team doesn't give a shit and they haven't given a shit for years. All of you just leave and go fufill your dreams of playing in the ECHL. Tired of it.
isn't PSU a club hockey team? Da Fuk
Probably shaking off the last of their ACHA roots. Since they announced they were moving up in 2010, most of the guys they've recruited were aware they were going to be D1 so most are D1 caliber with a few ACHA level leftovers maybe. Still absolutely no excuse for this team to lose to them. Letting up 3, 4, and 5 goals to them and losing one at home.
We have an all-time losing record now to a team that's been D1 for less than 2 years
No other way to say it: That sucked. This team needs to take a long good look in the mirror.
Compher and Copp (maybe) looked like they give a shit, nobody else does. Worst game Bennett's ever played.
This program is now the mid-2000's FSU/Miami/Michigan football of college hockey. Always talented and always failing to meet expectations. It gets to a point where you can't possibly say "Wow we have a lot of guys who didn't pan out" and you have to say there's something seriously wrong with this program that we are always one of the 5 most talented teams in hockey and no one ever develops, it's just getting worse and worse.
What do you expect from a team who turns the puck over 25 times a game. The same players are making the same mistakes that they have since game 1.
Be honest this team is beyond pathetic.
It is getting so old seeing Michigan sports teams being punching bags for inferior teams and underdogs. Biggest upset in college football history? Check. Penn State hockey getting its first two conference wins ever? Yup. Even last year's tourney run began with South Dakota State being excited to play Michigan because they had so little respect or fear for them. There is some kind of swagger that needs to return to the major athletic programs. This is sad.
oh stop. Plenty of D1 teams have lost to FCS teams in football at this point, including Florida. Kansas basketball lost to TCU last year in what was, according to kenpom, the biggest upset in history.
It's pretty weird to use a game we won by a billion as proof of how vulnerable to upsets we are, but whatever.
This isn't just a woe is Michigan thing.
Just got actual proof that Dave Brandon forced Madej to retire. I really can't stand him.
My aunt and uncle were up in the club seats tonight and talked to him.
Thought this was fairly public knowledge.
Has anybody on here sat in the club seats? My aunt and uncle used to have seats up there but gavee them up because the food was crap. They sat back up there tonight and apparently it's still crap. They said the food is better in suites at Toledo basketball games. Brandon the cheap ass.
It's not the food as much as the fact that the sightlines aren't very good. It's never been full, despite the fact Athletics swears up and down it's been sold out every year.
I don't believe the claim that they're sold out either. But for what you pay to be up there what they serve it's ridiculous. They had hamburgers, sausage, and cold wraps tonight. Are you kidding me?
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?!?! I can't believe what I just watched. We scored early, but kept letting them back in the game. Fucking turnovers end up in our fucking net. What a shitty day for hockey.
