Michigan - Penn State: Open Thread

Submitted by Sac Fly on February 21st, 2014 at 5:49 PM

Michigan returns to Yost for two must win games against Penn State. The Nittany Lions will be without two of their best defensemen, Nate Jensen and Luke Juha. The game is on BTN.





Di Giuseppe-Nieves-Moffatt






De Jong-Chiasson

They're not as bad as their record indicates. I've watched them a few times this year and they always play hard and stay in the game. Gadowsky is probably going to have them pretty good in not too long

I never get used to how many girls are in the hockey student section. I always think it's a dude-fest but then you see us on TV and there are a lot of females in there

And they somehow lead the league in shots taken? Seems strange. They must be getting a lot of credit for just chucking it at the night because they aren't getting many scoring chances for their shots

Wouldn't be surprised if Gadowsky is just coaching them to put it on net at all times

I'm sitting in Row 17 in Section 6 (directly across from the student section) tomorrow. I think it's the very top row on that side.

Will my view be obstructed?

I know that pre-renovations, if you sat toward the top couple of rows of the student section side (which I'm not on tomorrow), then that could be an issue.

Thanks for any help, fellow hockey die-hards--GO BLUE GO!

Talented on paper. I have yet to see any real development from guys such as PDG and Guptill who have never developed into the stars I thought they might be after their freshman years. Maybe they're just not that good.

I watch this Penn State team composed of a lot of ACHA-Division 1 hybrid players and I see them out-hustling a team made up of NHL draft picks. You can see that Penn State "wants it" while our guys always skate around with a deer in the headlights look

"Coach he's trying to take the puck from me! What do I do?"

It happens time and time again. We're never the aggressor. We just skate around and hope something happens
