Let's Go Blue!
to play football, not to play trumpet
MgoFrog predicts a series sweep.
this season Michigan was not on TV...disappointing
must sweep this series, no excuses, GO BLUE!
Hello from the Peg! Go Blue! We waved at the roar zone as they waited outside in the cold.
I didn't see this posted anywhere else but Wisc. beat Minn. last night.
We needed Minny to drop a couple. I figured it would be a close race between Minny, Wisky and UM for the B1G title.
With eight of our remaining 12 games against Penn State (wins, please) or Minny, we'll definitely get a shot at catching Minnesota.
Brian noted it in UV today.
Not on this site, of course, but I believe MGoBlue will be liveblogging the game as well if you are looking for at least periodic updates. I actually rather like this feature when I know that I won't be able to sit and listen to the whole game but I know that I will at least be within earshot of a laptop.
Go Blue, folks.
Here is the Penn State liveblog link:
"Where's the call?" - Al
Brian Aaron is one of the refs. Don't expect much.
MSU vs OSU is on BTN instead of us? Blech.
Compher! 1-0 U-M!
JT Compher. 1-0
JT! good dirty goal!
Compher from Deblois and Guptill
who has access to the video feed?
Whoa C YA!
good chance to really bury PSU early
Guptill PPG! 2-0!!
Guptill from Bennett and Compher
Beautiful wrister! Guppy!
Sounds like Nagelvoort is on.
under 5 to go in the first
PP over, PK begins.
Nagelvoort keeping them off the scoreboard.
Michigan 2, Penn State 0
- Shots are 9-8 PSU
- Compher from Guptill and Deblois at 6:05
- Guptill from Bennett and Compher at 9:53
- Power Plays: U-M 1-2, PSU 0-0 (will finish off 25 seconds of only power play to start 2nd)
Take a 2-0 lead and all the momentum into the locker room. Now we finish strong.
OT - Moo has a 1-0 lead over Ohio late in the second.
It's been a long time that i haven't either been at the game or been able to watch on TV or free stream. Don't really want to pay for this one.
Damn, they score. 2-1 U-M.
Are you fuckin' kiddin' me?!?! 2-2.
WHAT. THE. FUCK?!?!?!
Phew! Waved off.
We got luuuuuuucky. That looked like it was in.
Copp!!! 3-2 U-M!!!
just curious how you are watching the game?
At the game
Ok, guys, I promise I'll keep listening for the rest of the game. I left to take a shower with us up 2-0, came back to a tie game, and then we immediately scored two quick ones. I'll just make sure to stay right here for the rest of the game!
Hey, Penn State, you need a new sieve again!
You can blame my wife for PSU's goals. She moved from her seat to talk hockey with one of PSU's student managers. As soon as she moved back they waved off PSU's goal.
I turned game on radio when got in car to drive family home from dinner. It was 2-0. Looked like 2-3 when pulled into driveway! Glad to hear that was someone else's fault!
Selman to the box.
Another PP opportunity coming up.
On the Power Play
Alabama is impressed by how many national championships Russia is claiming right now.

No joy on the PP.
OT - Moo is up 2-0 over Ohio in the third.
Hopefully we don't leave our heads in the lockerroom to start the third period.
Michigan 4-2 after 2
Kile took a major shot to the ankle when he blocked a shot. Was limping off the ice. Looked a bit better going off the ice for the intermission.
Michigan 4, Penn State 2
-Shots were 13-10 PSU (22-18 PSU overall)
Casey from DeRosa and Juha at 2:59
Scheid from Koudys and Jensen at 2:00
Copp from Bennett at 5:52
Hyman from Motte and Downing at 6:42
U-M 0-1, 1-3 overall
PSU 0-1, 0-2 overall
*PSU did switch goalies from McAdam to Musico after Michigan's 4th goal
I thought they switched sieves right before we scored #4.
my bad, I feel shame
Dang, on the PK.
Ohio State scores. MSU leads 2-1 with 1:43 left.
Ohio got one back - only a minute left.
Ohio on the power play for the remaining 38 seconds.
Ohio tied it up with one second left!
Ohio State ties the games with 2 seconds left!
MSU up 2-0 under two minutes, Ohio State scores twice. What a choke job from Michigan State.
I think Staee would rather win in a shootout than in regulation
Shootout in EL
Sound like someone was in the crease.
Yep #2 was right in the crease and knocked off the goaltender. #11 for PSU was laying down in front of zach and making no effort to get up. Would love to hear Brian Aaron's logic for calling that a goal.
That should have been called off. Exact same situation as Sinelli's goal that got waved off last week.
I guess waiving off two goals in a game is too much to ask. 5-3.
Ohio wins the shootout
We don't want this to turn into RIT. Finish them off.
The closest 7-3 game I've ever seen.
GOALLLLL!!!! Hyman Empty Netter
GOALL!!! Copp from Bennett
My radio feed must be on delay because the CHN live feed updates before the radio announces the goal.
Michigan 7, Penn State 3
Shots 14-10 PSU (36-28 PSU overall)
Downing from Selman at 7:03
Saar from Milley and Holstrom at 14:29
Hyman from Motte at 17:53
Copp from Bennett and Compher at 18:43
- Power Plays
U-M 0-0 (1-3 overall), PSU 0-1 (0-3 overall)
Michigan/Penn State at 5pm on ESPNU
Also, Red Berenson is 4th place all time in NCAA D1 wins at 784
Jon Merrill scores in overtime. His first NHL goal.
More of the same tomorrow!
Welcome to college hockey PSU. Rest up. More tomorrow. You think this is bad, wait until you see the inside of Yost in a few weeks. Got my tickets and saving up my voice. Still pissed about that football game.
Wife is going with me to the PSU game at Yost on Feb 21. I'm going to dinner with the wife on Feb 22. I'm splitting the series. Hopefully Red will do better.
The B1G refs are terrible. What a surprise.
Tell me why Michigan's goal against wisconsin was waved off last week but psu's was NOT and there were TWO violations! A guy laying in the crease and pretty much decking Nagelvoort.
Watched it on MGoBlueTV with the WTKA feed playing over it.
LOL sparty blows a 2-0 late 3rd period lead against the buckeyes to eventually lose in a shootout. They robbed themselves of the 3 points.
And don't look now, Brian, but wisconsin is beating minnesota again. If UW wins today, they will have swept them and if Michigan wins tomorrow, Michigan can take the lead in the B1G standings with a sweep in minneapolis next week.
First things first though, time to whip ass on ESPNEWS tomorrow in round 2.
On ESPNEWS? So you anticipate S. Carolina @ TN b-ball going past 5PM.
Though I wouldn't be surprised, I meant ESPNU.
I got it mixed up with a game later in the season that Michigan will play on the network.
We have our fate in our own hands. Make the easy wins easy.
Not to divert the thread, just not worth creating a new one...
Take a look at this hit in the Wisconsin-Minny game. Ouch.
Wisco 2 Minn 1, 15 to play in the 3rd
Looks like Wisconsin swept Minn.
Big series next weekend
Big Ten hockey race just got verrrrrrrry interesting. Six back with two in hand and four shots at Gophers. Two back of Wisconsin with two in hand.
Until Wisconsin wins a game on the road, I have to think Minnesota and Michigan will be fighting for the top spot.
If Michigan wins tomorrow they will be 3 points back.
They will still have 2 games in hand.
Oh right, 3 games in hand because things are weirdly staggered. My brian hasn't adjusted to a world where all of college hockey isn't played Friday/Saturday.
I was happy and surprised Friday afternoon when I saw that Wisc. beat Minn. Thursday night.
It's apparent the talent difference between the two teams right now. Michigan bodied PSU off the puck regularly and we constantly had great chances because they entered PSU's zone unmolested. When Michigan was on, PSU was getting blown out of the water. Expect a similar score tomorrow night
Does anyone know where I can find highlights to the game?
