Puck drop at 7:35. There is video but for a fee. 

Win tonight, and it's over.

next weekend, I'm going!   How soon will the next round's playoff tickets become available?  WMU is just a 45-minute drive from home, South Bend even a bit closer...

This team has really developed into a dangerous force over the last month or so.  It took most of the season to put it all together, but there's no better time to be the hottest team around than playoff time!

I don't want to go to western. I think Michigan will nail notre dame if they play them. Last time in south bend, Michigan scored a ton. The problem was they weren't playing well on defense and the goaltending was bad.

If Michigan keeps playing like they did tonight, they will end their season with a win. That was domination. At one point the shots on goal were 39-9.

What I saw they completely overmatched Northern in every facet.

Helps when your Goalie is so solid like that - trickle-down effect cannot be underestimated in hockey, a sport where mistakes will be made.

Great stuff, very much looking forward to the next round. A team with a low seed, not much expectation, but now on a roll, playing their best hockey of the season and fearless - dangerous, very dangerous.

So, I have no idea about this:

Is there any chance we get into the NCAAs?  Is there an auto-bid for the CCHA tourney winner?

Forgive my hockey ignorance.
