3 western beat 4 miami 6-2 earlier today in the first CCHA Playoff Semifinal. miami was on a parade to the penalty box, all game long.

2 Michigan will play 11 bowling green later on at 8:05pm on FSN+ Detroit.

Michigan has to win tonight. Most important thing.

I think this a good situation that Michigan is playing bowling green while there are two good teams beating up on each other.

Anyone who takes bowling green lightly, is a fool. I learned last year that past games and records don't matter in these Playoffs.

This game between miami and western is the battle of schools with douchebag fans.

miami: A team that just showed up. They just won their first playoff title last year, two Frozen Four appearances in 2009 & 2010 which they blew both shots. Not much of a history at all before that in terms of success. Their coach is a whiny little snot and their fans are pompous and think they have an elite program. Sure, they have a great team and have had good teams recently. But they don't have the history nor the success that programs like Michigan, minnesota, north dakota etc. have.

western: Program that hasn't won ZIP since their one and only championship of any kind, a CCHA playoff title in 1986. Their fans too are pompous fools who think that one CCHA Playoff Semifinal win over top-seed Michigan last season makes them an elite program.

I hope this game is 1-0 in 4OTs.

At the end of the 1st period: 3 western leads 4 miami 2-1. western leads SOG 14-5.

I don't like western's fans, but I'll give em props for this. They were chanting "worst state ever" when miami scored. Good for them.

As a Wolverine originally from the Zoo, I'm obviously biased in Western's favor, but I've seen quite a few Michigan shirts walking the campus, and I've never had a problem with their fans except for a few thinking they originally created our hockey cheers (then again, many of our fans think we created our hockey cheers, so I can't be too picky).

Haven't seen it asked yet, so, any online video streaming of the hockey game for those of us who are cableless?  I know it's FSD+ so I'm not holding my breath.

I'm more focused on winning championships so I'm not really into the whole seeding situation. I hope they get a 1 seed, but either way, I think this team will make another great run in the NCAA Tournament.
