I've been to the game at nationwide before (2 years ago) and am going to the Sunday game next week. I have to say, nationwide is a way better venue than the schott. It's actually pretty cool to see a college game on a pro venue. There's no atmosphere at the schott anyway, so you aren't losing anything. Tickets are a few dollars more. I wonder if they do it to sell more tickets to the bluejackets once people get to check out nationwide.

The team's mantra is Create the Difference.

Tomorrow is the time to truly do so by replicating this performance and recording the program's biggest conference road sweep since......since......I don't even know when.

Best performance by a Michigan hockey team in a long time! Totally focused, good positioning, took away time and space and rock solid goal tending. Hopefully we can put together another one tomorrow! Go Blue!

I always used to think of North Dakota as the bad guys in the Minnesota-NoDak rivalry, but ever since the formation of the B1G hockey conference, I've found that Minnesota fans are so goddamned overbearing and entitled that I question as to whether they're the bad guys. There was, and probably still is despite their improvement over this season, a very large group of Gopher fans who have felt that they need to fire Don Lucia despite him having more national championships than any previous coach of theirs, winning their conference the last 4 years, and playing in a national championship just 2 years ago. I want them to fall apart down the stretch of the season just so I can see them lose their minds and call for the head of a coach who has done nothing but win for them.

I have no idea, man. Seriously, every Gopher fan on the college hockey subreddit wants him fired too. Their team is super young and they still control their own destiny this season. It really makes me hope they inexplicably do fire Lucia and they bring in their own version Anastos so they can learn what it truly means to suck.

Like all the FanBo9ys here, I too HATE it when other teams' fans LIKE THEIR TEAMS!!! MAN are they ever JERKS for liking the schools they pretend to have attended!

If only these santimonious jerks would  be more like Michigan Fanboiys, who hate ever4yone elseand think every recruit should go to Michigan, otherwise they're being paid to go to other schools, and if only the other fans would think their team is the best despite not being relevant for nearly a decade or more and if ONLY the fans of other teams didn't think ALL OTHER FANS were overbearing jerks...

Oh, wait.

I see what I did there.

game thread, and I'll say it again here: with Racine now playing consistently good hockey, if we continue to get halfway decent defense in front of him, I like our tournament prospects.

We know we have the offensive firepower already; just don't want to be on the wrong end of a 6-5 game.

Just finished watching it on my DVR. I thought Racine deserved the #1 star even though Kile had the hat trick. Lots of big stops early. Great win, and hopefully they can get another one tomorrow to take control of the standings.
