Hopefully the hockey team can continue its success in the new year.
Edit: Grammar correction
Let's Go Blue! (read: plz crush them)
It's the first game of the season I can watch.
Come on BTN, don't fuck things up on hockey broadcasts for once.
I ... I don't know what I'll do
Well, it's looking like I'm not going to know what I'll do
So is Merrill going to be playing full time?
Yay Jacob Trouba - gold medal winner!
Shit! They score first.
That's the kind of stuff that got Lindsay Sparks scratched the first half. He threw the puck around the boards and no one was there. Come on man.
DAMMIT!! 2-0 them.
At the game
This is bad
Ugh. I finally get to see a game on tv and we go down 2-0 quickly.
Angry Michigan defenseman hating god
Major on them. Must score on PP.
This power play is horrible
Well, Mr. Announcer, is it Road Runner attitude, or Tasmanian Devil attitude?
Pushed around in our own house by bowling fucking green.
Geez, two of our passes leave the zone.
Holy smokes this is bad.
Why the hell didn't a third guy go in there?
Whether the calls go against us or for us, the officiating in the CCHA is such a joke. Hit on Serville was clean, and BGSU loses a player and gets a 5 minute penalty. If that had been called on us, we'd be livid. Gongshow, indeed.
They hate the teams that are causing them to lose their jobs by going to the B1G. You can see it with the officiating, the conference schedule and the horseshit from last year of Hunwick not being named first team all-conference.
One of the best officials Shegos "retired" from officiating. I know him personally and he was tired of the politics of everything. Especially prior to CCHA officially folding. I think conferences will strong arm some officials to pick between B1G, NCHC, and possibly WCHA.
"We want Shegos!"
Been a long time since I've heard that chant at Yost. A classic.
I thought you gave up on this team and were done for good?
anyone have a link? Its on BTN so I was hoping firstrowsports would have it but no dice
suck so bad this year, frustrating to watch this
is the arena as nice looking as it seems to be on TV?
It's really great. They did an amazing job on the reno
And they're still on the PP.
Trouba isn't coming back next year. He's too good. He win a freaking gold medal and dominated the WORLD JUNIORS. First rounder that could help out Winny immediately. Sad to say but it seems like he's the next Pacioretty (one and done).
One of the weakest drafts in a long time. No one in Winnipeg expects him to leave after year.
I hope he stays all 4. I hope every player in every sport at Michigan stay & graduate.
I could see him bailing before the end of this season. Winnipeg needs some D help.
Moffatt!! 2-1 them
GOOALLL!!! 2-1 BG
Damn, Trouba to the box.
needs to get these penalty minutes under control.
Looked like the guy tried to hit Trouba and fell down how was that a penalty?
He fell down because Trouba got his elbow up.
fair enough, I'm in that endzone so I couldn't see the whole play, lots of bodies blocking the action.
Trouba threw his elbow up into his face; looked like a good call to me.
On the PK again. /sigh
The guy who shoved Trouba when he was down probably should have gone to the box as well.
FUCK! 3-1 them.
I can not stand watching Lindsay Sparks. Play some defense man.
is just ridiculous. Of the few things you can control in a hockey game, not taking six penalty minutes in the first ten minutes of a period is a pretty god damn easy one (yes, two of those were coincidental).
