Michigan - MSU Hockey Open Thread

Hockey at the Joe tonight. 7:35 on FSN. Hopefully we can grab the split tonight after the disappointing game in Munn last night. Also, feel free to talk about anything you may be sipping on tonight. I think I'm going bourbon and ginger ale.

Looks like a completely different team from last weekend, and not in a good way. Terrible PK and it seems as if we're playing most of the time in our own zone.

It seems like we expected state to not put up a fight or something this weekend because they 've jumped all over us since we went up 2-0 yesterday. Maybe getting swept will inadvertently light a fire and we'll make a deep tourney run...but let's just win tonight anyway

Dangit guptill! Blew through the D and then stoned by the MSU goalie on a breakaway. And then the puck was still loose it looked like but the ref blew the whistle. It's been that kind of weekend for us so far.

I liked his claim that anytime there's contact with a goalie, they're going to call a penelty (or something to that effect). Maybe Hyman deserved that call, but Hunny gets run A LOT. It seems like that might have come up during preparation for the game given how much Red has mentioned it in pressers this year.

Maybe going by that particular contact (as a former player, and current referee, so my experience isn't nothing, here), but otherwise there's no standard like that, even in USA Hockey. By the way, Hyman deserved it if, if, if, they're going to make the same calls when it goes against MSU. A lot of those calls have to do with a referee's "style" and you just have to look for it to be called consistantly.

Edit: do you mind me asking why your particular username? I've been wondering that since I've seen you post.

Consistency is all you can ask for, it just seems like it has been hard to get this year.

My username is because some friends of mine decided that if I was a DJ I would be DJ MastaDon. I do not know where it came from (I have no interests in DJs or prehistoric mammoth type creatures), but it seemed like an adequate username to use for websites.

right here it's a must. CANNOT LET SPARTY HANG AROUND! We did that last night and it cost us. Need a PP goal here and one more late in the 3rd to nail the Spartan casket shut! GO BLUE! Hell score 7 I don't care! (my coach talking lol)

I think we've had slightly better of the play in this period so far but nothing to show for it so far. I can only think of one chance so far. But we do seem to be on the front foot. Hopefully we keep that up.

Jesus we spent about a minute in their zone and now they've been in ours getting tons of chances for the past 2 or 3 Good lord this game is ridiculous.


Penalty. Crap. Gotta kill it off (obviously)
