I'd say Michigan may have something to say about ND before us.
Actually it's a hard call, if we get past Duluth do we want Notre Dame who squeaked by us in the conference championship and deserves some payback or Michigan who simply put is our greatest rival school?

I would much rather play ND in this case. I cannot imagine trying to beat Michigan six times in one season, especially considering we barely beat them in Columbus (notice I didn't say "at home" because that wasn't really a "home" game) last time we played them. I would rather play ND and have the revenge factor against them after the OT loss there in the BIG Ten Title Game.

I agree that it seems nearly impossible to Michigan a SIXTH time in one season. But man wouldn't beating them to win the Nati be about as great as it could be.

I agree. Beating a good team six times is enough of a challenge. The other reason is that I think Michigan is simply playing better hockey than ND right now. ND isn't the dominating force they were the first half of the season, and Morris doesn't seem as untouchable as he did earlier in the season.

Another factor in this is if we are in the title game (let's not get ahead of ourselves here and overlook UMD) and do not win it, I would rather lose to ND than to lose to Michigan and have UM fans be able to say, "Yeah, we went 1-5 against you guys, but we won the most important one." Let's beat the Bulldogs first, then turn our sights to whoever wins the other game.

According to the championship manual, the reserved sections are 113/114 and 216, sections 119/120 and 222, sections 101/126 and 201/202, and sections 106/107 and 206/207. Seed 1 gets the corners behind the bench they will use, seed 2 the corner behind the other team bench and seeds 3 and 4 the corners opposite their team's bench. Based on this, if Notre Dame uses the Wild bench, they should be 119/120, OSU should be 113/114, UM should be101/126 and UMD should be 106/107. But according to the manual though, locker room and bench selections are to be determined. For some reason I seem to remember that in 2011, Notre Dame used what is now the Wild's bench in their game against UMD, and wasn't UMD the higher seed in that game? I would also suggest calling either the Xcel ticket office or one of the participating team's ticket manager and see what they say.

*eta* I just checked and in 2011 Notre Dame was on what is now the visitor bench and UMD the Wild bench, so I'm guessing my round-up of ticket locations is probably correct.The above are WeAreNDHockey's guesses from the tournament thread. Though not definitive, I'd say they sound like highly educated guesses. But if anyone knows with certainty, please post.

...have UM fans be able to say, "Yeah, we went 1-5 against you guys, but we won the most important one." Yea that's what I'm counting on although I'll admit that I'm a little leery playing you again. We need to get by rudy first though.

Your team seems to improve with each game and are peaking plus winning streaks always end at some point (except football)!

I remember watching the 1998 Frozen Four on TV knowing very little about hockey as a 13 year old growing up in deep Southern Ohio. My Dad and I watched the game and the next year he purchased season tickets with my sister moving to Reynoldsburg there was a place for us to stay for the Friday night on a weekend series avoiding an extra 2 hour drive. For 13 years we would make the 2 hour drive every weekend and Ohio State hockey quickly became the epicenter of my sports world. He stopped renewing the tickets when I moved to Orlando (Try getting a sports bar here to put on college hockey!!!)...

Anyway, sitting at my desk today it's a surreal thought for this team to be back where they were when they motivated my family to get involved with it in the first place. There's no real point to this post other than I'm pretty darn excited for tomorrow and no one here at work cares. =)

Go Bucks!

Go Bucks!In similar vein, I was driving around the other day with an Oldies station on the radio. Hang On Sloopy (McCoys version) came on. I believe I can say with complete confidence that the DJ at Sirius/XM did NOT have OSU Hockey in mind when he made the selection.:o But it hit me like a ton of bricks how cool it would be to hear the Pep Band playing Hang On Sloopy & Carmen Ohio at the X, celebrating Buckeye wins.

We'll see. We are an underdog. Heck, I don't even know for sure that the Pep Band is making the trip. But it sure was a nice thought. Go Bucks!

My understanding from a tweet I saw is that the band is going. So that's a good thing.

Still recovering from back surgery here and my doctor absolutely nixed the trip so I will be glued to the TV. I'm not so sure I trust his opinion on this since he and his son are using the tickets I got from OSU. Have several friends from this area (southwest Ohio) making the trip and two good friends from L.A. who are flying there today. Not sure much will be left standing with that group in attendance. :D

I'm so jealous of all those going!!! I'll be in Minneapolis for work in 3 weeks and wish it crossed over. As it stands, I am working a massive event this weekend and will be off of work at 5:30 tomorrow and 7 pm on Saturday.

Has anyone seen merch other than the shirt with all 4 teams and then the 2 on the OSU site? I have a hard time buying a shirt with a block M on it

If that's the way they are at your work you should give them some Ohio State attitude about something they would care about. How about reminding them where Urban Meyers coaches these days! :D

Yeah, you guys will need to get by Notre Dame first, just like we need to concern ourselves with UMD tomorrow before we can think about Saturday.

Great story, thanks for sharing that! My OSU Hockey fandom began my freshman year (1982-83) watching guys like Jamie Macoun and the Pooley Brothers in the OSU Ice Rink. I had a good seat in the corner, playing in the OSU Athletic Band. I got to see some great teams and great games, as well as watching us win the Ohio Cup a couple times. I have been a big OSU Hockey fan ever since, and these days I am as big a fan of the Women's Program as I am the Men's. Actually, truth be known, I am probably a bigger fan of the Women's Team as I spent my coin going to their NCAA Tournament Games this season and sat home watching on tv for the Men's games, but I love the guys, too. You used the word 'surreal' in describing the guys being in the Frozen Four. To me, it is so surreal that both of our programs went to the Frozen Four this season. That has only happened with three other schools (Boston College, Minnesota, Wisconsin). With the CBJ on the verge of their second playoff berth in a row (first time that has happened in franchise history), it has been an amazing hockey season here in central Ohio!
