I didnt realize that allentown was that far eastWell, who knows if we make it if we want the Allentown seeding depending on who the other teams are but from a fan's perspective I would consider the 6 hour drive.
If we would get South Dakota then no chance of me going.

A great win and a shutout 4-0! Also a crowd of just a hair under 10,000 providing a great environment for hockey.
On the plus side Penn State and Notre Dame go down as well. If we win tomorrow we'd have our first ever 4 game sweep of Michigan in hockey. A good start for catching the football teams winning streak against TTUN. :D

Don't know how it turned out, but earlier in the night Denver was losing. I know SCSU got pummeled. OSU could be Top 4 by the end of the weekend?

I'm more afraid of when you guys come to town than I am of my Gophers losing to Notre Dame tomorrow. :)

Nice to see OSU doing well in hockey. Doing the B1G proud. Now we just have to hope MSU's hockey coach doesn't go down with the rest of the POSs going down. Heard Izzo and Dantonio are both going to retire? It would suck to be back down to 6 teams again come next season?

I feel bad for our former assistant coach Joe Exter. Joe's a great guy and just joined their staff and prior to this it seemed like a good career move as you have a school with great hockey traditions, a new coaching staff poised to revive the program and now with the possibility of the NCAA making MSU suffer in ways Penn state never did. How can you recruit effectively with that possibly looming over your head?

I can't see the hockey staff being in much trouble since they are so new and there has not been any incidents that I know of involving hockey players. Sad state of affairs for certain.

Well what a series and we have our second season sweep of Michigan in program history. Our current players weren't born yet the first time!
A good crowd again and a more chippy game. I can't complain!

Ya great game all around. Glad we got the upper deck partially opened up both nights. Romeo came up big a few times in both games and being able to score consistently is always nice to see. On to that other team up north!

Well what a series and we have our second season sweep of Michigan in program history. Our current players weren't born yet the first time!OK, I'll bite. When was the first, and who were the Buckeye players at the time? No doubt I was born, but I don't remember this.

Best educated guess: The early 1980's.


A good crowd again...Hope some of those new (or almost new) fans come back. Realistically most won't, but they should. The team is putting on a great show, and ticket prices are extremely reasonable.

Message to our new friends: This Buckeye team deserves your support!


...and a more chippy game. I can't complain!It sure looked like Michigan made a conscious effort to play more conservatively on Saturday -- particularly to cut down on the number of odd-man rushes allowed. A portion of that effort was hard nosed play. Leading directly to several sets of coincidental penalties.

Michigan, of all teams, decides they can't run and gun with the Buckeyes. We live in interesting times.

Just shy of 19K in attendance for the two games. Hats off to Mason Jobst for the short handed goal and then a ton of blocked shots on Michigan's 5 on 3. That was when the crowd really got into things. It was the loudest I've heard in the Schott in a long time.

With the other results from the weekend they are now six points clear of third place Wisconsin and have two games in hand on them. :D

A very, very good weekend.

It was the 1985-86 season and the scores were 4-2, 6-5, 6-4, and 8-6!Very cool; thanks for digging out the specifics.

Speculation is that Moser will be back this weekend and hopefully Joyaux as well.

Really don't like that we were outshot, but if we come out firing again tomorrow we should be ok.

Horrible 2nd period and bad puck handling & passing in the neutral zone. Make mistakes like that tomorrow and it could be costly.

Agreed. I don't know if they took their foot off the gas in the second period or if it was just a sloppy night, but they shouldn't be getting outplayed by a team like that for long stretches. Joshua looked good, and Myer had a couple of nice spin moves that were fun to watch, so it was entertaining at least.

Yeah, we basically gave them that first goal. No excuse for it and allowing Sparty to control and cycle the puck for such extended time in your zone and it keeps your guys on the ice & tired and then nothing good comes from it.
I thought in that 2nd period we made absolutely no effort to beat them to the puck or out hustle them. You should never take your foot off the gas just because you have a lead.
