So I just finished reading about the Big Chill Ice, and noticed that the rink was Olympic size rather than NHL size. This makes sense, since it fills out the Big House better than a small rink would.
My questions to the MGoCommunity are;
Is this an advantage to Michigan since they usually are a quicker team while State likes to play a defensive battle and get points off of transition or is it an advantage the other way?
Will this make for a more exciting game, with more open ice to move the puck around, or will this be worse, since I'm guesing it will be easier to clear the defensive zone on larger ice?
Any other comments or facts would be appriciated. I'm really excited and can't wait for the game tomorrow. Go Blue!
