Ferris St came out playing fast and I thought their defense smothered UM in the first period. It was very lopsided, but we hung 1 goal to stay even. When Ferris went up 1-0 their fans were chanting over rated. I think that inspired the team and fans as momentum finally swung back to the maize and blue. Ferris wanted this game badly. I was disappointed by the late third period goal by the Bulldogs, but I thought they played well enough to win. We were lucky to escape with the tie. I am not sure how the tie will effect the Pairwise standings, but I don't think UM was hurt by the tie. The non-conference portion of the schedule was a huge success. I would love to see UM win the first ever B1G hockey championship! We are already up two games over OSU. Minnesota is out in front of the point standings at 3-0-1 and Wisconsin is right behind us at 2-2. Both will have something to say about who wins the conference. Go Blue!!
