As long as we keep scoring 6 to 8 goals a game... I like an aggressive goalie, but on the Wisconsin goals on Saturday, Lavigne was often well out challenging a shooter only to get caught by a rebound he couldn't control, a deflection, or a Joe Louis bounce.

#7 is a little misleading -- it's by one ten-thousandth of a point in the RPI.  It's probably best to think of it as a virtual tie for 8th.  Still, considering where this program has been recently, quibbling over 7th or 8th is a good feeling. :)

Well, virtual tie for 7th, but yeah. Results in the next two weeks will alter Michigan and Clarkson's razor-thin RPI margins.

Michigan has virtually no chance of climbing higher than this. That's ok, this is pretty high.

That's what I meant. :) 7th, 8th... numbers are hard :blush:

And, yes, I'd rather Michigan be 0.0001 ahead than 0.0001 behind.  But they're subject to flip because of some random result in the Hockey East tournament or something -- that was my point (we're in agreement).

I don't know how much of a difference there is between being #7 and #8 for seeding purposes, but I do know that this is just one more reason (not that anyone needs one) to cheer for Michigan to upset OSU this weekend in Columbus.
