'Cats, don't feed the troll. We Yoopers (or transplanted ones) are above that kind of nonsense, in more ways than one.

Win Friday. That's all that matters. Just win Friday.

Are you guys serious? Why are youso confident NMU will be smoking Ferris State this weekend? The loss, and shootout loss to NMU from Ferris is all you are probably going off. But have they seen the shot charts? 46 - 33 the first night for Ferris. And the second night was 51 - 21.

NMU got outworked by Ferris State the entire weekend, even NMU's coach says so: "We have a lot of respect for Ferris State. We played the twice in their building earlier in the year and in my opinion we were out-played both nights, but Brian Stewart played very well and was able to get us some points. They’re very well-coached, have a ton of talent and a ton of experience."

Your goalie can only take the team so far. I think NMU will go home for their 8th time in 9 years. Sorry 'Cats...

Most recently, Ferris State went 4-0 over a very good Nebraska-Omaha team. Northern swept UNO the first series in "November" and got swept most recently at the end of January.

Check the college hockey news match up comparison: http://www.collegehockeynews.com/schedules/taleoftape.php?gid=1561

Ferris State has a better record, less goals against, a better penalty kill, Northern has two players to injuries: Billy Smith (arm)
Matt Butcher (knee surgery), and Ferris State's starting goalie has a better GAA (5th in the nation, compared to Northern Michigan's 15th).

As everyone says...History repeats itself. Sorry 'Cats, Dogs will advance.

This is fun. I like Wednesdays of game weeks.

We have a better power play.
We're bigger than you are.
Your coach looks like your mascot.
We score more than you do.
Our top scorer is 10 points better.
You have 1 30-point scorer, we have 4.
We scored 4 goals on 21 shots against your starting goalie.
We shut you out.
NMU is 15-3-2 in their last 20 games. Ferris is 8-8-4.
Ferris averaged ~1000 fans in the playoffs, NMU averaged ~3000. Your own fans don't want to see you play.

I have no problem with your opinion, I just like stats, too.

Just to emphasize-- FOCUS ON FRIDAY.


The Bulldogs are a good team. The Wildcats are a good team. Friday's game should be fun to watch.




GO CATS!!!

Lets throw out more stats:

Pat Nagle 2.01 GAA (5th in the nation) .927 SV% (6th in the nation)

Minutes Played 1376:25

Brian Stewart 2.37 GAA (16th in the nation) .927 SV % (5th in the nation)

Minutes Played 1952:19

NMU's Power Play is ranked 9th in the nation with 49 fewer PP Chances than Ferris.

NMU's Penatly Kill is not as good at Ferris' but in November it was around 78%. To have it sitting at 84.2% means something is going right.

This is essentially a home game for Northern in terms of the crowd. Ferris cant even sell 1,000 tickets for a home playoff series...I dont see them getting many people and students to go to the Joe.

What's wrong with thinking ahead? It's not like WE as message board posters are going to play in the game or have any effect on the outcome...:confused:

I saw that. I would jump all over that, if I had the opportunity. By far the best odds to bet on of any team with a very good chance to make the tourney, IMO.

I just put $500 on them. If we win the CCHA Championship, I expect those odds to come down significantly.

You better be buying some rounds if that pays off. ;)
