Michigan - Minnesota: Open Thread

Submitted by Sac Fly on February 15th, 2014 at 7:20 PM

Huge game in the Big Ten standings tonight with Minnesota trying to pull away and Ohio State looking to jump into 2nd place. Michigan State sits at 19 points, one behind the Wolverines. The game is on FSD.

if someone can help me out  - i can't post a new thread - not enough points - but might matter to a number of people on the blog.

for those that backed the HTTV kickstarter project -

Kickstarter hacked, user data stolen

The crowd-funding site says hackers broke into its systems and made off with data. Apparently credit card numbers escaped the attack.

Does anyone have a stream for this game? I see that it's on FSD and FCSC, but not available down here in Maryland. I had to pay a bar $20 last night to buy BTN for the month, awful state.

I'm not holding my breath though. Hoping to see us play competitively again and carry that momentum through the final eight games, which are considerably easier than this and sprinkled with a lot of home games (PSU, OSU, MSU, Minnesota)

We've looked flat out better than Minnesota so far. Their PP has been a mess, Racine has been a rock and Minnesota is giving out a crazy amount of odd-man chances for us

When the Gophers have the puck it's like every pass is the greatest pass ever made. When we've got the puck, it's like they're about to fall asleep up in the booth. I'm fine with being a little partial, but show a little excitement the other way every now and then...

Until Minnesota cleared, that was a terrific looking powerplay. The openness of Olympic ice certainly helps, but you don't often see a Michigan PP unit look that crisp. Nice to see

We came out pretty hot but stagnated midway through. Minnesota had the bulk of the chances from there and is still getting wayyyyy too many wide open looks from inside the top of the circle.

As it was last night, we are fortunate Racine has been money and they only have one goal. We're fortunate to have one

Situational plays have been a big problem for our 4th line this year; defensive zone faceoffs especially. That's probably why Red never keeps them together for consecutive games.
