Nice job, UM--blow a 2-1 lead with 10 min to play and lose 4-2. Hail!
Disappointing evening all around.
What makes this game tough is how the team plays on Friday. You see the times where they can play anyone but then they turn around and do that.
I was in the building for both games this weekend. I was disappointed with the Saturday loss but overall pleased with what I saw. No superstars but a very impressive freshman class lead by Lockwood. And they should only get better as the season progresses.
If BU is a top 5 team then Michigan can make the NCAA tournament. Especially when they get back Marody.
I was formerly a tasty 7-11 beverage. Now I'm a fan of defunct hockey teams.
Will wonders never cease, the Michigan Hockey radio announcers were wrong. I also saw somewhere that the Seniors (minus Allen evidently) were suspended for Friday for a violation of team rules. Which of course basically means that Coach Berenson isn't telling you what they did...
I think our leadership is reflecting on the ice. I watched Kile float every shift except for the occasional burst when he pirouetted around the zone carrying the puck. De Jong played solid, but should know better. Shuart is needed on the ice for his offense and size and was victimized on the winning goal, having his back to the BU forward who cruised in the slot and popped in the rebound.
My guess is, the freshmen are figuring out things by themselves.
Any word on a Dekers watch party for the Dec. 1 game at Penn State? It's on ESPN U, in the past I got that channel but I down-sized this past summer. What are thoughts that Comcrap might pick it up?
But can we score? Never thought I'd question Michigan and their offensive output...
The game on ESPNU may show up here. http://livetv.sx/eng/
Sometimes when a game is on 'sat channel' it pops up here. Hit the 'hockey figure' button on the left and go down the list. If you have adblock it makes it easier to get though the opening up sequence. Note the time is European so it will show up in UTC time. Good luck.
He is as cool as a bomb disposal technician!
The Laker split was disappointing, but that is what we get with this year's Michigan team. Struggle to beat middle of the pack teams. Their goaltender was outstanding on Friday, probably stole that game vs. Lafontaine who looked to be fighting it a bit. Giving up the winner with 3 minutes left was killer, not his fault, got to cover the guy off the bench. LSSU earned it. They play a real aggressive two man forecheck. On Saturday, I thought we were much better and they gave us more to work with offensively. Not the best defensive effort by them or their netminder.
Good to see Nagelvoort with a solid effort. Sounds like LaVigne is out of action, didn't dress either night.
On to PSU Thursday and Friday.
B1G season starts tonight. Where will Michigan end up in the conference? I'm thinking 3 or 4. I believe we're at least a better team than State...but they are coming off an impressive win and tie at North Dakota.
Here's how the conference stacks up right now based on winning percentage in non-conference play (which I know isn't very meaningful)
Penn State .885
So this weekend we play #7 Penn State. PSU has always played competitive with us. They've had a good start to the season, but a weak schedule (winning their last 8 games, but against Canisus, Niagara, UAA and ASU).
Tonight's game is on ESPNU.
I think are chances tonight are similar to our season so far... .500
pathetic effort. This team quits real easy.
