You may be onto something. I'll pass a note down the aisle and see if it gets to the bench.

Uh ... nice game??

Yes - the cathartic moment was former Spartan recruit Andrew Sinelli netting season goals #2, #3 and #4 in one early March night against the program that once jilted him. Somewhere, a shunned billy goat is waiting to be revealed.

The game was really close in the first- State had a ton of chances- out shooting us 11-6- I thought there were a lot of good chances.

But the ice seemed to slant a little in the 2nd. Ok, a lot. And it just stayed that way. State was clearly frustrated for the last 10 min of the game- the one time they put a huge effort into dominating the play (big checks, speed, movement) the score even went to Michigan.

It would have been nice to put up a Pizza against you guys, I can't remember the last time we did that to State.

I was in the north end zone tonight and tried to get a "We eat pizza" chant going but it fell on deaf ears....

Just like the guy who started the " just like roundball" chant.

I like Andy Sinelli- hard working guy who got his shot in the lineup on the blueline and is taking advantage of it. He has scored 3 of his career (7) goals against MSU. The others: RIT, OSU, WMU, Minnesota

Can't keep those Dexter kids down.

And they listened to you, darn it. Heck of a second and third period- really pulled it together, again, after the goalie swap.

amazing what a rivalry brings out in teams.

After the first five minutes I was wondering if Anastos should even be behind the bench next year. It was looking like a second straight dud performance at home against an arch rival, and like he was unable to motivate his team after getting shellacked the night before.

Now I'm wondering if Yanakeff needs to be the guy for the rest of the year. There have been hints of Hildy losing an edge, whether it's teams figuring him out or just fatigue from getting overplayed.

Tonight we saw MSU at its best and worst. We saw a team that would probably get swept by PSU, and we saw a team that has the capability to make a run in St. Paul. It would be nice if we weren't still having those issues this late in the season, but if they need this type of game to go on an upswing then fine by me.

I think a key stat was UM 0-4 on the power play while MSU went 1-1. That's a case of drawing to the inside straight; not the kind of thing you can count on night-in and night-out.

Given that Michigan had outscored us 13-2 over a 5 period stretch I think it is understandable if they got a little too comfortable, but I don't think it was that so much as not burying their chances while State did.

Anyways, it's better for the rivalry to have a little blood spilled on both sides.

I think another key is you showed up, Dem.
