3-2 in OT!  The review refs got it right this time, and Michigan moves on to face the winner of BC and Colorado College.  What a comeback for Michigan, down 2-0 about 9 minutes into the game.

I was listening to the game on an internet radio stream that dropped so many packets it felt like a robot was fucking my ear.  But that call made it all worthwhile.

omg, single elimination hockey/single elimination overtime hockey are taking years away from my life...

Go Blue!

I tried refreshing the page on my iPod touch but that just takes way too damn long.   I came upstairs to the desktop to find this.  Outstanding!

Drove to Subway, stopped at 7-11 for beer, and still got back to see the decision. Lasted longer than the final minute of an NBA game. Go Blue!

Blue 5

But that referee broke every principle of reviewing. You are supposed to only give credit for a goal if you can see the entire puck over the line, and you're not supposed to assume anything. I sure never saw it over the line as much as I wanted to.

Glad he did, that would have been tough to bounce back from after waiting that long.

Three to go!

that no-goal last year was devastating.  we were on a role, and about to go to the frozen four with a team that had a great chance to win the whole thing.  so i want more from karma plz.

Don't forget that last year's disallowed goal would have gotten us to a Frozen Four in DETROIT.  I still don't think our karma's evened out quite yet, but it was nice to see an iffy call go our way for once.  FAITH IN UNIVERSE: PARTIALLY RESTORED.  FOR NOW.

And a small wooo for being able to watch tomorrow night's game on good ol' cable TV instead of jitteryass ESPN3 (which was still better than nothing though).

At the game and that was the longest wait ever. I was so sure it went in on first glance but with no replay here the long review convinced me it didn't go. Well deserved. Great game. Can't wait for tomorrow!

I saw just the tiniest glimmer of white between the puck and the line, in the endzone view.  But maybe that was just me wanting to see it.  I thought it was in the whole time, but it was sooo close, with the no goal on ice, I thought they would say no goal and I couldn't have blamed them.  Glad we got the call.

I wonder if they are allowed to piece together images like the NFL. If you use all the camera angles, there is no way it's not a goal! Great comeback win. Going to need to play all 3 periods tommorow to keep it rolling! Go Blue!

I don't know how many games this season we've had to come back like that, besides that game against Western. Great comeback, great win.

This is interesting because I really want to beat BC, but Colorado is probably an "easier" opponent. I'm from Boston, I grew up a BU fan. I hate BC.

That's not a good start. 

EDIT: Apparently, Chris Venti (back up  sieve) went to my high school. Lot of kids from rival schools. So fuck em.
