This is the final CCHA Championship, Michigan going for their 10th Playoff Title, and to extend their NCAA Tournament streak to 23 years.

The tournament streak is only over when we decide it is over, LETS GO BLUE!!!!

Well the streak had to end at some point, like most I'm disappointed but am proud they went on this run to at least give themselves a chance.

Not so. Rough way to end the season but much better than just going 10-18-3 in the regular season and dying in the 1st round of the playoffs. Showed a lot of heart

*sigh* A very good run to end the season.  Too bad it wasn't a great run.  Actually, it's too bad we didn't win a couple more games somewhere earlier in the season.

And so we say fuck you, Gongshow.

It's a shame they could not have played with this kind of heart and determination the entire season. It was nice to see them come together as the year progressed.

Bring on the B1G. Go Blue.

This was some of the most exciting hockey I have ever seen / listened to down the stretch. It is hard to believe that this is the same team that I saw lose in pathetic fashion to Cornell at Madison Square Garden earlier this year. I wonder how many of these guys come back next year who could play pro next year. I would love to see another year of Trouba.

I also wonder how many more years Red wants to coach here, and it will be wierd for him to not be in a tourney.

Good show, boys, and let's get them next year!

Go Blue!

My emotional trends of this season:

Preseason: Yes! Can't wait for Michigan hockey this year!

Two weeks in: It's okay, just a slow-ish start. We'll pick it up

Two months in: It's okay, we'll still grind our way to the top of the CCHA

Four months in: Well this season is over. Thanks for ruining a season where we should have dominated.

Six months in: Where has this team been all year? Too little too late? Maybe, but this is sure a nice little run.

CCHA Tourney: This team is the best team in the NCAA right now. We just destroyed WMU at their place, which is almost impossible to do and now we crushed Miami! GO BLUE

Championship game: This isn't the same team that beat WMU and Miami. This looks like the January team. WTF!

Oh well. They did it to themselves. Good try, but it was too little too late. That's what happens when you take 4 months off. Usually the end result isn't in your favor.


Go Blue
