Let's Go Blue! Beat Western, win the Gongshow! Hopefully the guys got a good rest after going to 2OT to beat BG. Fortunately, the second OT was very short.
7:35 PM ET on FSD (or FCSA elsewhere, per justingoblue)
I'm very excited for this game and hope that the boys come out and take care of business.
Let's head into the tourney with as much momentum as possible!!!
we have zetterbergs suite wide open. any takers? text 2. 4. 8. 5. 1. 5. 5. 0. 3. 8
That was still a lot of hockey they played. Western is good, we'll see what happens.
Too bad the best Goalie in the CCHA isn't playing, now that would be exciting.
Does anyone know a location of a stream for those of us living outside of FSD territory?
Please tell me there is some way to watch online
I cannot FREAKING believe that I can't watch this game.
Help me hockey team..you are my only hope
looking forward to watching Michigan win some hardware
Hopefully they can pull it off tonight. Beer, great weather, girlfriend and championship hockey. Couldn't ask for a whole lot more.
Justingoblue is very smooth with such a post above.
That would be well played, but I'm fairly sure she only does when I bug her about it. I will proceed to show her this exchange, though, so maybe it will be worth something.
are annoying me already... Go Blue! Kick Westerns Ass
Burn the goddam boats, Fergodsakes.
The JLA DJ is notoriously bad, but sounds like the fact it's St. Patrick's Day is going to make it even worse.
Pretty weak turnout, too.
Sort of the same story as last night. They're not aggressively going after chances. Going for the extra pass. Holding the puck a hair too long. It's the difference between getting shut out and putting up 3 or 4.
hockey is ridiculously exhausting, and they went past eleven last night (and damn near eighty minutes of play), only to be back at JLA sometime around three today.
There's a reason every coach on an episode of NHL36 is concerned with minutes played in the first game; imagine being a defenseman with forty minutes played last night. That's probably giving and receiving more than two-dozen hits, more shots taken than that, not to mention the emotional investment involved. It's not easy to bounce back immediately.
we can beat them on depth. WMU wasn't sitting in a day spa yesterday, either; as they have to go deeper into their bench we should gain an advantage.
Still, the adrenaline is there and there's no question a Berenson team wants to win a championship.
I've heard meth is a great option.
I got about 30 seconds, which included the Western goal but that was it. Anyone have an update?
Western early in the second.
Half the time ccha refs just make shit up...
on phone. deveon smith just committed! per Sarah hughes on twitter.
These WMU students are garbage.
FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU, 2-0 them, PPG.
Keep us all updated please
Shit damn fart
Fah-q western. Wtf is going on?!
No joy on the PP for us.
Edit: just over 5.5 min left in 2nd.
They've got a hot goalie, a defensive scheme that is frustratingly good at blocking lanes and protecting their zone, we look tired and hesitant... Just not looking like our night so far.
3-0 WMU. Not good
3-0 now, 2 min left.
1:01, hooking them, we're on PP.
End of 2nd, 3-0 them, 59s left on our PP.
Wha? Guptill in the box. 4-on-4 to start the 3rd.
This will light a fire under them for the NCAA playoffs.
Hockey is such a psychological/momentum driven game, a good old fashion ass kicking can provide a productive reminder of what it takes to win it all.
How did I miss that Guptill penalty at the 20:00 mark? Can't catch a break tonight.
Full strength. We need an early goal to get us going.
Come on now.
chill out, man. There are sixteen minutes left and we're on a power play. No reason we can't mount a comeback.
And to think he said he'd seen enough...
Broncos too many men.
Fuck, Moffie called for holding. Weak.
you cannot close your fingers around a jersey. Out of all the things to do, that's one of the easier things for a referee to see. Come on, guys...
Obvious clean play is obvious, but going knee on knee f'ing hurts. Hope he's okay.
Edit: that's an absolutely atrocious call. Look for an extension or a dragging motion, neither exists. Total horseshit.
A major penalty? Really? That's absolutely absurd.
