Let's go Blue!!!!
Michigan vs. Northern Michigan Playoff Game open thread
Hail to the Victors!!
I am watching on MGoBlue TV, but I have no audio. Anyone else having this problem?
no audio...however, if you open up the live audio stream in a different tab in your internet browser, there is only a couple second leg between video and audio (video slightly ahead of audio)
i just opened the mgoblue live audio stream in another tab, its actually behind the video a little bit so it isnt bad
guess they had sync issues or something but now it works on the stream
Is this single game elimination, or is it best 2/3?
Best 2/3 in the first round (this weekend) and quarters (next weekend), then single elimination in the semis and finals.
Thanks for the explaination. Could you also tell me how the site for the games is determined? and is there a neutral site final?
There are 11 teams in the CCHA, so the top 5 get byes to the quarters (like the Big Ten basketball tournament was before last year). Seeds 6, 7 (us), and 8 host 11, 10, and 9, respectively, in the first round. Winners advance and are re-seeded each round.
The semis and finals are single elimination, and held in Detroit (Joe Louis Arena). The NCAA tournament is also single elimination, just like the basketball tournament. 16 teams qualify.
Of course, this all changes next year when Michigan (along with State, Ohio, Penn State, Wisco, and Minnesota form the B1G hockey conference.
Let's Go Blue! Beat NMU!
i dont think the game is on tv so mgoblue is the only feed but im not in michigan so I dont know that for sure. the fee is $10 for a month of access so you could watch other stuff too I guess but it at least gets this weekends games so it's not too bad
Don't ask where I found that
EDIT: also, mine does not have sound, so I'm listening to the radio feed, which is slightly behind the video. But better than nothing.
Michigan on the power play
WOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! 1-0 U-M!!!
Merill credited with the goal, Nieves with the assist. Goal was more of an own goal by Northern.
DiGiuessepe also credited with the assist.
WE WANT MOAR GOALS!
point shot deflected like a pinball off two NMU players towards the net and when the last DMan tried clearing it he hit it into the net...
causing problems in the Michigan zone, sloppy play by Michigan not helping...no real offensive presence so far by M besides the PP time
Another PP chance!
Lynch another PPG!!! 2-0!!
Kevin Lynch GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!
2-0 good guys
Kevin Lynch, right place right time, hit home a rebound by the side of the net 2-0
Treais and Guptill with the assist.
Video feed now has audio working and synced up
I'll post this here for future reference. If anyone needs feeds to Michigan hockey games, I found the one posted above at this site:
D'oh! Trouba to the box.
Kevin Lynch SH! 3-0!!!
Kevin Lynch has a pair...a short handed breakaway goal...a Datsyuk-ish pick pocket
THAT was a thing of beauty.
Continue to play like this and we might just have a chance
Michigan back to full strength
End of 1st period. Michigan winning 3-0.
Incredible start. Keep it going!
great tweet by Hoover Street Rag
"Michigan hockey is starting to feel like it has entered the "Uh-oh, Happy learned to putt" of the season. 3-0 Blue"
That's absolute gold right there!
So far so good! Keep it up and dominate the 2nd period!
Second period about to start.
Michigan power play
Yay, go power play!
ARGH! Too many men.
Too many men on the ice called against Michigan. About a minute of a four vs four and then NMU Power Play
Yay, PK! Then save, Racine!
Northern Michigan goal. 3-1
Damn, they score, 3-1 U-M.
3-1 now, get it back Blue!
lost faceoff never leaves the M zone...point shot deflected over Racine's shoulder, he had no chance
I've seen about 4 hits that could have been called- and theyve called none. I guess its better than calling everything
The last one was a major though, by college standards.
of course no call...gongshow
SHIT! They score, 3-2 U-M.
sloppy sloppy sloppy...shot from the boards kicked out into the slot by Racine and was banged in by the late man who was uncovered by Michigan D
That was the first bad goal in a couple weekends. Got outworked and bad rebound control by Racine.
Stop turning the puck over!!!
garbage turnover by M in their own zone, followed up by even worse defense...Racine with a big stop to keep the lead for M
Not such a good period. Need to come out like gangbusters in the 3rd.
Interesting trivia: Lee Moffie was the last U-M player to score a PPG and SHG in a game, 2011 playoffs vs BG.
Shots: 14-6 NMU in the 2nd, 19-18 NMU overall
MichiganPP: 0/1 in 2nd, 2/3 overall
NMU PP: 0/1 in 2nd, 0/2 overall
Michigan still leads after the second period of terror. That's what we need. If Michigan scores to go up 4-2 in the 3rd, they'll win this hockey game.
once again missed by the gongshow...DeBlois shaken up, but skates off to bench on his own
Let's Go Blue! Score the next goal(s)!
My feed has no time given. I'm assuming it's the under-16 timeout, but does anyone have the specific time?
I suppose we wait for Al to say what it is.
First good shift in like 30 minutes of gametime.
REFS YOU SUCK!
1:37 and faceoff goes outside our zone.
NMU has pulled the goalie. One more min.
Ha, NMU offsides, so he's back.
just over a minute remaining
Other Scores from around the CCHA 1st Round:
LSSU 2, BGSU 0 in the 3rd
MSU v UAF later tonight in Alaska
Timeout NMU. 1:00 to play
NMU goalie back to the bench
Do it again tomorrow!
GO BLUE!!! Final score 3-2.
U-M leads series 1-0
Game 2 tomorrow night at 7:35
Michigan wins 3-2
I like it!!! 3-2 final! Go blue, hail to the victors, 1 more tomorrow!!!
Good win tonight. Gotta end their season tomorrow. Let's go Blue!
We need one of two now?
Love to see them hold on and get the win. Still working on the postgame, but here's a quick recap and a few highlights. http://centericehockey.us/content/northern-michigan-friday-recap
Here are some photos from the game, including the goal, Trouba laying some guy out, more...
Go Blue! Let's finish this thing tomorrow. I have something to do on Sunday.
I asked this in the last thread but it was probably too late to see. I would like to buy these photos and use them for my site if permitted, when I tried to download the pictures it would not let me do that. What can I do?
