A quick reminder. Michigan at Minny tonight at 8:30 EST on BTN.

Both links have Michigan as a 2 seed slated to play in the Midwest Regional March 25-26 in Cincinnati against Nebraska-Omaha.

University of Michigan will be selling to tickets to hockey season ticket holders and whatever is leftover to the public. You can also get tickets through the NCAA at:

promo code: USAHOCKEY for half price tickets

Edit: Fixed

We couldn't sweep them at home so I am not optimistic.  We have not had much success at Mariucci, but, perhaps the goal scoring machine will be in highest gear for the weekend and we can pull out at least one win.

I'm finding it hard to care about the regular season champion for the B1G. For some reason it just doesn't excite me like the CCHA points did. I would obviously like us to win it, but if we fall short of Minnesota by a point or two and have a 2 seed in the NCAA tournament, that's fine with me.

I can't wait to see the CCM line do some damage in Tampa.

I just saw that the Frozen Four is in Tampa again this year. Michigan was the 1 seed last time it was here so I of course bought tickets before the tournament even started only to have them knocked out first round. I then proceeded to get bent over a barrel and shown the 50 states by scalpers. I think I will wait and see this year.

Have had that experience several times, Buffalo in 2003 comes to mind first.  Paid mucho $$ for tickets and then ugh.  Drove home without even watching the finals having basically given away the rest of my tickets.  Learned to buy at the site for this event.  Always tickets available on the street.

Also, speaking of Nebraska Omaha. Last time we played them was enjoyable. Still the last time I remember a goal review coming out surprisingly in our favor

I would think we could beat UNO in the first round and would assume we would play ND in the final of the region. A saw UND play in person a couple of weeks ago and honestly I wasn't that impressed with them. I think Michigan would have a speed advantage over them and if our play in front of the net holds up I think we would have a great chance to win that region.

You should probably have known that Consol Energy Center, home of the Pittsburgh Penguins, also sells RC Cola instead of real soft drinks.  I learned this during the 2013 Frozen Four there (no alcohol sales at NCAA tournaments, so if you want a drink you are stuck with cola or water).
