It took an illness to another goalie for him to get a pro shot, but gets one, with his hometown team, no less.

Here's hoping he impresses.

Like the lede:

Steve Racine is used to making saves. He made a big one for the Buffalo Sabres on Wednesday.

Sights of the NCAA Hockey Tournament

I started photographing Michigan sports in Spring of 2012. I had just finished my Sophomore year of Undergrad in engineering and wanted to do something with my photography skills, so I joined the Michigan Daily. The 2011-2012 season was Michigan's 22nd consecutive trip to the NCAA tournament. Photographing this 2012-2013 team was obviously a very special opportunity for me and one that I was excited about.

But apparently I was a curse that led to a three year NCAA tournament drought. Or at least many have told me this. Sorry, guys.

But this weekend the curse was broken as Michigan played in the NCAA Tournament in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Since most Michigan could not make the trip, I wanted to make a Diary that gives a feel for what the atmosphere was like. Away games/environements have always intrigued me. Unfortunately I chose the last game of the year to start one but better late than never, right?

The Notre Dame game was a fun preview of the years to come. Fans of both teams travelled well. When teams took the ice, it was a battle of the bands with the fight songs. "Let's Go Irish" chants were drowned out by "Let's Go Blue" chants, and vice versa.

Not every Michigan player dressed, but they did all travel. As a fan, it's tough watching your team go into overtime because there's really not much you can do. As a player though, it must be much worse. They looked far more nervous than any fan (as seen above).

Unlike the Big Ten Tournament, plenty of Michigan fans showed up to cheer on the team. This was to be expected, as Ann Arbor to Cincy is about 4 hours, versus 12 hours to St. Paul. The stadium still wasn't full and the upper deck was tarped off, but there were certainly enough there to create a decent atmosphere.

The hockey bands really gave the college sports atmosphere. The arena still played RAWK MUSIK (actually it was a lot of hip-hop mash-ups that they probably pulled from a YouTube playlist), but hearing Notre Dame and Michigan's fight songs back-to-back was a refreshing sound. Even the Northeastern band traveled quite well (as did their fans, though to a lesser extent than all the other teams).

Speaking of Northeastern, they were thoroughly handled by North Dakota. Despite scoring the first goal, they found themselves down 5-1 in the 2nd period to UND. The above photo pretty much sums up the game.

Steve Racine played lights out all weekend. This save above was a wrap-around by Notre Dame in overtime that was saved by the blade of Racine's skate.

Moments later, Michigan scored, players celebrated, and Notre Dame fans went home looking sad.

The next day, North Dakota fans arrived with strong energy. Though they are now officially the "Fighting Hawks", "Let's Go Sioux" chants echoed all game long.

Also in attendance: Michigan AD Warde Manuel. I don't think he changed facial expressions once all game.

 

The Sioux Fighting Hawks had some supporters from Ohio, too, celebrating in front of some Miami (Oh) and OSU fans. Something tells me they were cheering more for not-Michigan rather than North Dakota.

"Fighting Hawks" doesn't appear to be catching on any time soon.


 


If you're looking for a moral victory, after the North Dakota player scored he got taken out by the ref. So there's that.

It took until the 3rd period for North Dakota to take a 4-2 lead in this game. They dominated most of the pace and you couldn't help but feel that it was only a matter of time until they went ahead. In the first period, shots were 22-5 in favor of North Dakota. The players received a lot of support as they left the ice, Racine especially.

Red Berenson gave no mention of retirement at his press conference. He did applauded the efforts of his seniors, and praised the efforts of North Dakota. Could this have been his last post-game press conference?

If you were unable to attend the tournament in Cincinnati, I hope this has helped give you a feel for what it was like! A thrilling overtime win over Notre Dame and 2.5 periods against one of the best teams in the country made for an exciting weekend of hockey. (This is also my first Diary post so go easy on me!) I'd like to make more of these when I travel to away games in the future.

See you in the Fall!

If this is Goodbye, then thank you for our program [Patrick Barron]

 
OFFENSE
North Dakota was just better.  Period.  Michigan had a ton of trouble getting anything going consistently.  From any line.  There were chances; good chances. But Cam Johnson was just equal to pretty much everything the Wolverines threw at him.  M got into the slot and a couple of times into the crease, but not with any regularity at all.  For most of the game, I almost considered 'offense' as just getting the puck into the the NoDak end.  Both of the goals essentially came on the power play.  It would have been nice if a couple more chances could have been finished, but when you play a team with an unreal forecheck, equal speed, tremendous defense, and is backed by Cam Johnson...too many locks to pick.  Credit to NoDak for just overwhelming Michigan and exploiting matchups.
 
 
 
Oh, hello, most of the game [Patrick Barron]
 
DEFENSE
The defense was not very good.  It was brutal a lot of times, in fact.  To some extent, that is just what happens when you play against a superior opponent.  Aside from North Dakota just being better, it was the same ugly foes that Michigan fought all year.  I dug deeper into this team because I wanted to see the impact of the odd man rushes that M gave up on a consistent basis.  (SPOILER ALERT: 6, tonight...but no goals).  In doing so, the D Zone TOs kept jumping off the screen.  That is really what did Michigan in on the first couple goals.  Nieves had one that lead to the first goal, Boka/Compher each had one that lead to the second.  There were also too-many-to-count failed zone clears.  Its all nothing new, really.  These things have been present for the entire season.  North Dakota just put a microscope on all of them and forced Michigan to play an absolute perfect game.  They did not and it really could have been a lot worse.  
 
 
 
Still couldn't stop M's power play [Patrick Barron]
 
SPECIAL TEAMS
Michigan actually won the Special Teams battle (kinda).  Both Michigan goals came via the power play.  They technically had two opportunities.  The first lasted 24 seconds and Compher scored just after the penalty ended but before the penalized player got back into the play.  Power play goal?  No...but yes.  JT's second goal was actually on the power play, tying the game at 2, midway through the third.  Let's say 19 of  their last 31. 
 
Michigan dug in on the PK and killed 3 NoDak penalties.  Which...is saying something because the entire first period seemed like a power play for the opposition.  Shots were 24-8 after the first.  They did give up a PP goal on NoDak's fourth opportunity, late in the third.  That just about ended the game.
 
 
 
 
When you've given your all [Patrick Barron]
 
GOALTENDING
Steve Racine has been ragged on all season (regardless of the OMRs, DZTOs, poor PK), but if you rag on him tonight, go find a new sport to watch.  He was beaten four times, but someone show me what he could have done on any of them.  Unlucky bounce on rebound, wide open shot from the slot, tipped shot that still hit his glove, and wide open dude in his face who redirected the shot about 3 feet from him.  He also made 44 saves -including a breakaway, a couple OMRs, and countless stops that came when his defense hadn't cleared the puck in minutes.  It could easily have been 9-2.  He had his share of luck (somehow) as NoDak missed some wonderful chances wide of the net.  He probably didn't reach Hunwick-level, but given the quality of defense in front of him, it sure felt like it, sometimes.  At one point in the first, shots were 15-3.  NoDak was on pace for 70+ shots.  Yet, it was 0-0.  He's had his issues for sure, but for the most part, since taking over the starting spot in the second half of the season, he's been an unsung hero of this team.  All the credit in the world to the most fun line I've ever watched in college hockey, but the last couple weeks -and certainly the last couple days- have given me a new appreciation for Steve Racine.  You can't say he didn't do his part.
 
 
BONUS: ODD MAN RUSHES
I touched on this above a bit.  There was 6, tonight.  And a handful of others that were close.  None resulted in goals, surprisingly.  There were three 3v2s, two 2v1s, and then a breakaway that Racine just stoned.  Three OMRs lead to misses of the net, one that turned into nothing, and then two saves, including that break.  I'm actually a little surprised there weren't a few more, but it was the DZTOs, not the OMRs that doomed the Wolverines, tonight.

FINALLY! [Patrick Barron]
 
 
OFFENSE
We wondered what it would be like if M's scoring depth was tested.  Tonight, it happened.  The CCM line generated a few chances but nothing very scary...early on.  The best looks came from the 2nd line.  Boo, Selman, and Kile all had great looks at the net.  Selman converted his off of a nice faceoff play, but Cal Petersen was able to put the rest of M's good looks to bed.  Notre Dame all but eliminated the M's top line through two periods, forcing the rest of the Wolverines lines to produce the scoring and it just didn't happen.  A hat tip to the ND coaching staff.  No one has really been able to do that all year.  It got so bad that Michigan started slipping Connor onto different lines just to give him a chance to get a few looks.  The third period produced a few better looks, but still nothing...until Werenski stepped into the slot and tied the game with about half of the third period left.  Kyle Connor ALMOST won the game right before the end of regulation, but Petersen got enough of Connor's shot to slow it down on the goalline before freezing it.  However...you can keep the CCM line off the board for three periods but apparently not four.  Connor had multiple Grade A chances to start the OT period, then got the puck down to Compher, who found Motte wide open in the slot to finish off the Irish, 3-2.  After only a decent showing in the first couple periods, Michigan bombarded Petersen in the third and overtime.  Michigan's supporting cast did just enough to let the CCM line slam the door.
 
 
DEFENSE
Michigan's defense was not stellar, tonight. Downing took a terrible gamble near the end of the first that set up Bjork on a 2v1.  He didn't need to pass and hit a corner on Racine, scoring ND's first tally.  Downing also had another couple of plays that reminded us of what he was for most of his career, instead of the last few months.  He wasn't alone, though.  There were enough defensive zone TOs and failed clears that allowed ND to sustain a lot of pressure.  The Irish also missed on a few wide open opportunities.  A goal is attributed to Werenski -who also had another few fantastic opportunities- so there is that.  Michigan did only give up two goals, but Racine can take most of the credit for that.  They will need to be consistently better as a unit, if they are going to shut down a powerful North Dakota attack, tomorrow night.
 
 
SPECIAL TEAMS
The biggest key coming into to the game tonight was ND taking penalties.  If you stay out of the box, Michigan's biggest weapon is gone.  That's exactly what they did tonight.  Michigan had zero power plays.  I think that's the first game this year that Michigan has not had a power play?  Its a big testament to Michigan getting three goals without their nuclear bomb.  Also, props to ND for staying out of the box.
 
Michigan had to kill two penalties and did so.  Notre Dame threatened a few times, but never scored.  Really not much else to say in this section.
 
 
NOPE! [Patrick Barron]
 
GOALTENDING
Steve Racine may have had his best game as a Wolverine tonight.  He flat out robbed ND multiple times throughout the game.  He matched Petersen save-for-save.  I can't really put either goal on Racine, tonight. He had no chance on the 2v1 on the first goal -it was also an excellent snipe by Bjork.  It was tough to tell, but I don't think he saw the 2nd goal.  A couple of ND skaters crossed in the left faceoff circle and the lead one dropped the puck off and the second immediately shot the puck high over Racine's blocker.  I thought from his reaction that he never saw the drop.  
 
I would give Racine the MVP, although Petersen played just as well.  Dealing with a leaky defense and and offense that couldn't get in gear until 3rd period, Steve Racine kept Michigan in the game long enough for the Wolverine legs to outlast the Irish legs.  It's about time the senior get his due.
 
 
BONUS: ODD MAN RUSHES
I counted four.
 
The first I've covered a few times.  It was not good.  Michigan hadn't given up an OMR goal in a few weeks.  It was situations like that, that lead to Adam and I digging into and counting OMRs.
The next three came to very little (3v2, 2v1, 3v2).  Racine had to make a nice save on the fourth, but the second and third were rather harmless.  Michigan does need to stay disciplined, though.  A powerful North Dakota offense awaits and giving them numbers in transition could end even worse than tonight.

BIG TEN CHAMPS [Patrick Barron]

 

OFFENSE

I thought Michigan's offense was very lively tonight.  They played another skilled team and had the better scoring opportunities.  The game went through stretched of carrying play for both teams, but it seemed that Michigan was able to consistently get deeper and closer to the slot for their chances.  Shots on Target ended close to even, but I think Schierhorn stopped a few more difficult opportunities.  

This was definitely a game for the CCM line, most of the damage coming on the Power Play.  However, the game-tying goal in the early third was something to behold.  Compher has just been a wizard with the puck the entire season.  With a guy in his sweater, he had a cross-ice pass to an open Connor who just ole'd Schierhorn (who probably played the situation correctly) from inside the dot and beat the charging defenseman to the post, sneaking the puck in the open net.  Adam will have fun with that one.  It was the Hobey cherry on top of his Hobey sundae season.  He has 35 goals and 34 assists.  He is NOT JUST A SHOOTER.  Connor now has an nine point lead on the second place point-getting...his center, JT Compher, who has a six point lead on their linemate, Tyler Motte.  Compher also leads the nation with 46 assists, 8 more than 2nd place.  Connor and Motte are first and second in goals with 35 and 31, respectively.  Michigan has NINE players with double digit goals; nine players with 20 or more points; and six skaters with 30 or more.  I don't know what else to say about this offense.

DEFENSE

Another terrific game defensively for the Wolverines.  Again, they allowed 33 shots to get to Racine, but -just like yesterday- most of them came from a distance and away from the dangerous areas near and in front of the net.  Minnesota does have quality players and did generate a few nice scoring chances, but Michigan limited them -for the most part- to what Racine was able to see and stop. Also, Piazza looked just fine playing for a suspended Downing.  Compher talked about the first goal in the intermission, saying that it was on a forward not locking up the trailing Bristedt (who notched his 20th of the season...no slouch there).  The defensemen seemed to have dramitically improved in the second half of the season (minus the OSU series), looking more comfortable on the puck, riding attackers away from the net, and staying sound defensive position.  I'm starting to believe that this level of defense can take them far.

 

Goodnight Minnesota [Patrick Barron]

SPECIAL TEAMS 

Michigan top Power Play line is just bonkers.  The entire Power Play is nuts.  They were 14 of 25 in the last five games entering the B10CG.  And went 3 for 4.  17 of 29, 59% in last six games, now.  The top line gets all three goals, tonight, as Motte, Compher, and Werenski all score...Werenski with the winner late in the 3rd.  Its really not even just the goals.  There were multiple opportunities where the puck could have easily gone in before it actually did.  The puck movement and passing is just incredible.  Each player knows where to be and seems to be in slow motion as the pass always seems to go to the open player...the entire point of a power play.  You honestly just cannot take penalties against this team. 

Michigan did a fantastic job staying out of the box, tonight, conceding only one man advantage.  Unfortunately, they were unable to get the kill.  Minnesota kept the puck in the zone the entire time and eventually Compher lost his stick.  The puck soon found its way to an open shooter on JT's side and Racine really didn't have much of a chance.  You don't like to give up Man Advantage goals, but if you're only in the box once, I can live with that.

 

GOALTENDING

Steve Racine was fantastic, tonight.  And actually, he has been for a while.  He's been criticized for a few clunky goals allowed -and he's had a few- but he's also saved the day on more occasions than are credited to him.  Again, the defense was sound for the most part, keeping the majority of shots away from the dangerous areas, but Racine was up to most of the ones that leaked through...including flashing the glove and stoning Tyler Sheehy midway through the third to keep the game tied.  He also had a ridiculous kick save off a deflection a few minutes later.  

You can probably place a little blame on him for the second goal.  While it does appear that there was some contact to his pad/skate, he looked a little gumpy and slow trying to get back across the crease to defend the wraparound.  I don't think it was entirely on him, but that was definitely very awkward. It also might have been Martin that hit him, making the entire sequence rather unlucky.  Other than that, he was very strong to start and end the game

 

BONUS: ODD MAN RUSHES

I only had two.  There were a couple I was close to tallying but decided against it.  The first was late in the opening period, a 3v2 with De Jong and Piazza back.  Nothing of note came of it.  The second was a little dicier.  A neutral zone turnover lead to a 2v1 that Martin made a perfectly time dive to smother the pass and take the puck to the corner.  This is very good.  I will keep taking this.

This happened a lot (Patrick Barron)

 
OFFENSE
 
My first note is "KyleLOLConnor"  He's the best player in college hockey.  He will win the Hobey.  I don't think its very close.  He showed an array of reasons why that is the case, tonight.  His ability to get the puck off  instantaneously and use defenders as screens is unreal.  JT also had a ho-hum five assists.  Droppin' dimes, droppin' dimes!  Playing next to Connor clearly agrees with him.  Boo Nieves is driving a lot more play, lately, as well.  He added a tally tonight.  That line is humming along very well.  Even the fourth line looked very dangerous tonight, as Max Shuart scored in his third straight game.  Obviously the CCM line is untouchable, but there's not much noticeable difference between the rest of Michigan's three lines -and that's a good thing!  I don't remember that being the case in a very long time.
 
DEFENSE
 
Despite the high Shot on Target total for Penn State, I thought that Michigan's defense played well, tonight.  Penn State did bring 20 skaters, tonight, so perhaps last weekend was not as much about their lack of numbers.  For the most part, Penn State was kept away from the more dangerous areas on the ice.  The majority of their attempts seemed to come from the perimeter or with a defenseman in the shooter's face.  Penn State has the 6th highest scoring offense in the country and they were predominantly kept at a distance.  Michigan did have trouble getting the puck out of the zone in the beginning stages, but overall, there was nothing egregious.  
 
 
GOALTENDING
Steve Racine played very well in net, tonight.  He let a few rebounds get away from himself early, but remained very steady throughout.  Again, as mentioned previously, he faced very few scary chances and was not relied upon the save the game for Michigan.  He did stop 40 of the 42 shots that reached him.  There was nothing he could do on either of PSU's goals.  The first one Selman seemed to get caught puck-watching in the slot and Kevin Kerr slid a one-timer in the back door.  The second was very similar.  Great puck movement from PSU's highly ranked Power Play forced Cecconi to choose between taking away the guy in slot and the backdoor pass.  A good backdoor pass went through the defense and that was it.  Again, no real shot for Racine on either.
 
 
SPECIAL TEAMS
This was the fun part.  Michigan went 3 for 5 on the Man Advantage.  Connor with 2 and Kile with 1.  The puck movement from the top line is just phenomenal.  Motte even looked off a defender before finding a wide open Kile for the first tally.  Even the second unit looked to almost score a couple times on the second power play chance, coming very, very close.  Connor then took over and netted his couple.  The PK was not great.  After a great kill to start, they gave up a couple of goals with players getting a little lost on who to check.  Motte did have a fantastic clear on a 4-on-3 that saved a tremendous scoring opportunity as the second period ended.  
 
This is part to talk about what put Michigan in a couple of  those PKs.  Nieves took a silly slash before a faceoff.  Boo had an overall nice game, but that penalty was maybe the second dumbest event of the night.  The first followed soon after when Downing slammed a PSU player in the back of the head -far away from the play- as they were heading off the ice.  Downing was tossed and should miss tomorrow's Championship Game, as well.  Brian had tweeted something about how he had been playing much, much better lately (and I agree), but sometimes old habits...  Not good.  At that point, M was up 5-1 neither penalty was defend-able by any stretch of the imagination.
 
 
BONUS: ODD MAN RUSHES
Another great game for Michigan, concerning OMRs.  I counted four in total.  The first three (despite the third technically being a 4v1 -the other two were 3v2 and 4v2) generated nothing threatening at all: a shot from the wing that Racine saw easily and stopped.  The fourth was a half breakaway on a lob into the offensive end on a Michigan PK that got behind everyone.  Racine was able to steer the attacker wide and reached back to keep the puck from trickling across the line.  Given the first few months of the season, I would take tonight's chances surrendered in most future games.

**Since Adam and I are doing a rather interesting behind-the-scenes hockey stats project, my access to Michigan Hockey has increased expotentially.  There is still a lot of working out how everything will come together and what it will reveal but we're both pretty excited.  Since we've began to look at some that stuff, I figured it might not be a bad idea to reflect some overall ideas on a per game basis for the Michigan Hockey team.  This may develop, stay remotely similar, or disappear completely.  Hopefully, more of the former.  We'll start with four areas and go from there.**

 

OFFENSE

If you've followed Michigan Hockey this season, there's really not a lot left to describe about this offense.  They generated 57 shots on target, last night, rather evenly throughout the game (18, 22,and 17).  Many of these looks came from dangerous areas: around the crease, in the slot, and inner halves of the faceoff circles.   Kyle Connor had 2 more goals; Boo Nieves also had 2 on Senior Night; Motte, Werenski, and Selman each tallied a couple of assists, as well.  As will be emphasized throughout, Penn State only dressed 16 skaters.  There's no question that this played into Michigan's ability to control play all night long.

 

DEFENSE

As seen by the previous section, Penn State basically had 3 lines and 3 pairings.  Michigan's defense, for the most part, was largely irrelevant.  Scanning the shot charts, there were very few shots even ATTEMPTED at Michigan's net: 60 (25 coming in the 3rd, once the game was out of hand).  Michigan for comparison had 90, with almost 30 per period.  Just glancing at where these attempts came from, maybe only 10 came from threatening areas in the first couple periods.  Penn State is 6th nationally in goals (3.69/game) and averages a shade over 42 shots target/game.  So, to be honest, I think the result was probably a little more due to Penn State's personnel limitations than Michigan's locking them down.  M did have their normal stretch of sloppy defensive play that forced some great saves from Racine (and then Nagelvoort).  

 

GOALTENDING

Again, Penn State threatened very little for the 'in doubt' first 30 or so minutes.  The defense kept most of the threats to the perimeter, aside from a few lapses.  Racine played well in his final game at Yost.  The goal came on a deflection from Cecconi as he was tracking a PSU attacker and crossed Racine's vision.  Tough luck for Racine.  He was great in every other opportunity he was presented with...though there were not a lot of them.  Because of the offensive barrage, Racine was afforded the chance to be ceremoniously taken off for last 12 minutes.  FWIW, Nagelvoort seemed to play well, as Michigan's defense sagged off towards the end of the game.  Nagelvoort made 9 saves in 12 minutes versus Racine's 21 in 48 minutes.

 

SPECIAL TEAMS 

Michigan was phenomenal last night.  3/6 on the power play and 3/3 in their first three attempts.  Once it was 5-1, M had a 5 min PP (due to a red card to Penn State's Ricky DeRosa) and then a 5-on-3 for 2 minutes.  They did not score, but at that point, the game was all but decided. The puck movement from the top line (Werenski, Kile, Motte, Compher, Connor) is just ridiculous.  Its the best I've seen in a long time at Yost.  Maybe the best I've seen?  I know Hensick, Porter, Tambellini, etc had some great ones, as well.  But that was a while ago.  Michigan's PP leads the nation at a 29.5% clip.  Last night, clearly no exception.  On the flip side, Michigan only took 1 penalty and allowed just 1 shot on that penalty kill...and it came from the neutral zone.  Again, Penn State only had three forwards lines.

 

BONUS: Odd Man Rushes

Still in the infancy of deciding how to track these and what to do with them but from what I counted last night: 4 OMRs given up for Michigan.  

  • The first 2 were soft 3v2s that didn't even result in a quality look.
  • The third was Cecconi with an awful centering pass from the blue line that was picked off and Scheid came in on a rush before Martin caught him at the top of the circles.  Racine calmly blocked the shot into the corner.  
  • The fourth was a neutral zone giveaway that left Downing back in a 2v1 but a nice back-check from Warren nullified the opportunity.
