The pregame show is on, the beer is cold, its Saturday night now lets win this fucking thing and get back in the big tournament.
whats on the line: Michigan NEEDS to win to make it into the NCAA Tournament. Minnesota will make the tournament with a win and have a strong chance of advancing even with a loss (it is NOT a given as there is one scenario where they could be left out).
this game will come down to goaltending. Racine needs to keep up his good play at the Joe but Michigan will need to keep the pressure on Wilcox (who looked like the Wilcox of old last night with the shutout against Ohio State) and fight for the rebounds in the crease.
I'm not going to bring up the running theme of these threads thursday and friday because we all get it and expected it.
WIN THE GAME!!!
