The boys are up north in Marquette. Can't find any video, so here's my options. Here's to Hunwick!

I love Michigan but I go to school up here at NMU. So whatever happens, its a win win situation!
Similar situation here. I grew up in Marquette and went to tons of NMU games, but went to school at U-M. I'm always torn when these two play.
I thought I was the only one (not the only Michigan fan, but the only MGoBlogger) up here. Slightly weird.
Though I will say that the only time I root against Michigan is when they play NMU in hockey...
Same situation here grew up in the U.P. and did my undergraduate at NMU.
woah wonder what I did to get -966 points lol
brother just texted me who is at the game (nmu student, not a michigan fan), said michigan hockey team reminds him of msu football team...pushing northern around with a few cheap shots
Hunwick just got ejected. Let's go Janecyk!!!!!
EDIT: Radio announcers seemed shocked that Shawn got tossed. Red was not so happy about it either.
And Janecyk just made a great save by the sounds of it!
Had to sign on to say, WTF?!?! You can run our goalie and get him thrown out???
no sir..the cheap blocker punch was what got him tossed.
Ive seen some bad calls from CCHA refs but never anything as bad than that one.
Northern MIchigan goes ahead on a PP goal
I'd love to be able to see what happened, but it trust when al randall says something is complete horseshit.
he completely socked him, clear as day tho.
Tie game! WOOOOO!
And Lindsay Sparks ties it back up after scoring right out of the penalty box!!!
3 goals in 14 sec?
Now it's turning into a shootout...although both Northern goals didn't sound like Janecyk's fault. 2-1 Wildcats
I'm at game on goal line at the Berry. Will say more after game but hunwick acted stupidly with a cheapshot. Will say more later, sick break away goal!!
Fuuuuuucccc, followed by yesssssss, only to be followed again by fuuuuuucccccc
B1G hockey can do is bring CCHA officals with them. These guy suck.
Radio announcers are not happy with how the game is being officiating. They think Northern is being cheap and getting away with it. Obviously I have no idea if true.
But from the sounds of it, the referees want this to turn into the Miami game a few years ago all over again.
They are calling this one-sided all the way, and its why I can't stand the CCHA. Northern has been taking cheap shots all night and they eject our GOALTENDER. These guys are just as big of clowns as always, and this is why I can't wait for B1G hockey. Probably only going to get worse since the Big Ten "started" the realignment and now they're going to lose their side jobs in a couple years.
Inexcusable officiating. They've lost control of the game, and the NMU players are laughing on the ice (literally), probably because they know the refs have given them a blank check to do whatever they want.
What a motherfucking joke. Every time Michigan goes up to this shithole arena, the refs always make terrible calls. Coincidence? I can't wait until the B1G hockey conference comes, so these small school programs can rot.
I like the Berry...
That building feels like a bingo hall.
IIRC, Northern Michigan got real cheap during the CCHA Championships Game when we beat them two seasons ago. Just remember them taking cheap shots at the end of the game, ones that could seriously injure a player.
EDIT: 3-1 Wildcats and they're on another PP
I remember that game well. Got what they deserved in the end though.
My experience with Northern fans is that they are the MSU of the UP. Maybe that's my MTU connections and the school colors talking (Plus Mel), but my experiences backs it up and so do the school rankings.
I believe it. Especially after this game!
NMU is nothing like State. State fans are assholes that care more about what other programs are doing than their own..NMU cheers for their team and that's all. I wore a Michigan sweatshirt and hat and didn't hear a word about it. Would that happen at State?
They get a goal and a PP just for kicks. Unbelievable.
Hope they enjoy jobbing us on the road, because if they repeat this calling at Yost I'm not sure they'll make it out of the building alive.
This is unwatchable.
northern scores and oh, surprise ANOTHER FUCKING PENALTY CALL BY THE REFS.
These refs better enjoy doing this while they still can, because they'll all be on food stamps when the league dissolves in 2013.
ANOTHER FUCKING PENALTY.....
So getting all pissed off isn't really the way to go...
ferris state beats miami 4-2.
ohio beats state 5-2.
GOAAAAAAALLLLLLL! 2-3 now
Meeeechigan comin' back!
3-2 with less than 10 to go in the third. If we get a point out of this game, I'd say it's a success.
and brought the rough (can't use other word) tactics . Refs are very misinformed.
This requires an investigation.
TIE GAME!!!!!!! 3:46 to go!!
"Get the fuck off my ice"
