The Young and streaking Buckeyes take that trip to AA this coming weekend to take on the Wolverines. I am excited for this series, ohio state is playing very well right now they havent lost since Oct 20 at Michigan state. The young guys have really adjusted to the College game very well after a slow start in the first month of the season. Heeter has been a rock in net just like he has been for his whole career. This series has all the makings of a great one and should be a spilt which is what the buckeyes have done in each of the road series they have played in conference.

Klbaum1077 ... A split this weekend in AA is fine with me, especially with Michigan coming off a sweep down at Miami. You know they are going to come out and play some inspired hockey this weekend. Plus, we'll be coming into AA in first place. Michigan would love to be responsible for knocking us out of that spot. Having said that, though, I am sure Coach Oz will have our guys fired up for this series, too!

I've watched us win at Yost but it's one of the hardest venues to do so. The fans are packed close together and are very organized and keep their team encouraged and motivated. Michigan's hockey team has been in existence for 90 years and a lot of pride goes with that. A win there is a quality win.

I believe the Buckeyes have won only 3 games in that building against michigan since 1989, ive seen 2 of them so i consider myself pretty lucky. That place can be pretty brutal on opponents you have to score first and take the crowd and students out of the game. Give up the first goal especially early in the game and your night becomes even tougher.

This series will be a good test for the young BUCKEYES. Go Bucks Go.

Does that include the NCAA Regional in 1998 where OSU beat Michigan State. Most of the Michigan fans were rooting for the Buckeyes in that one. (Lesser of two evils, I believe. At least in hockey.)

I have Michigan and Ohio St coworkers who discuss Football and B-ball far too much. Trying to get them into hockey. Either of these games on channels we can get in MN? Or online? Thanks.

2-1 Win for the Bucks! Good thing we have Heeter otherwise all the power plays we gave Michigan could have cost us the game!

With the win tonight we tie Notre Dame for first place in the conference. Lake Superior has non conference games this weekend so they won't be a factor, Notre Dame also in a non conference game but will play Western in another Tuesday game. A Ohio State loss tomorrow could put Ferris ahead of us if they sweep at Alaska. Opinion has been that a split is satisfactory on the road but I now say heck with that, lets go Bucks and sweep Michigan on their home ice and send a message! :D

Man, we sure looked like we had molasses in our veins tonight. Outside of some great pressure in the 2nd, Michigan couldn't really do much. And when we got a 5m PP, nothing. Well, unless you count the really slow skating back to get the puck. ugh.

OSU does look a lot better than they have in the past. And took full advantage of Michigan's slow legs and rather obvious passing.

And took full advantage of Michigan's slow legs and rather obvious passing.Like I said before, beating you guys on your home ice is not an easy thing to do. No other arena in the CCHA has the atmosphere that Yost has. We have a lot of confidence in our new coaching staff but with so many young guys we weren't too sure how quickly they would come together as a team. The difference between how they looked several weeks ago and now is amazing. The problem of committing too many penalties seems to be rearing it's ugly head again tonight, lucky for us you guys didn't make us pay dearly for it. Knowing Red the way we do I'm sure he'll make the guys know how unhappy he is and light a fire under them for tomorrows game. Would NOT want to be in the locker room when Red's pis*ed! lol!

Great win for the Buckeyes tonight as historically, we have not done well at Yost Ice Arena. Cal Heeter continues to be a wall in net for us and it sounded like our pk really bailed us out tonight with all the penalties. It's a shame this one wasn't on tv down here in Ohio. I get Fox Sports Detroit with my DirecTV package and turned over to that channel but they were showing a hs football game. As much as I love Buckeye hoops, I would much rather have seen this one on tv instead of OSU's 85-41 win over Jackson State. BTN dropped the ball on that one!

As exciting as our game was it doesn't get much more exciting than when the puck trickles past the goaltender for the win just as the clock hits 0 to give ND the win.

Boy what a win tonight for the buckeyes. Doing what only 3 teams have done in that building since 1989 is something special. What we have witnessed over the last month has been nothing short of amazing they looked pretty bad in that thursday night game at MSU and have not lost since. Coach has them playing good hockey right now and you see it all over the ice. I thought michigan had the better chances all night long for the most part but cal and the defense turned them aside. I really didnt think that 5 minute penalty should have been a 2 minute penalty but they killed it off with some help from michigan. When shorthanded i thought the Bucks did a great job of keeping the puck to the outside michigan really didnt get good looks from the slot and when they did get a chance the shot was either blocked(which the guys did a great job all night) or Cal made a save. Now tomorrow night I would like to see cal a have a little better control with the rebounds he left some and looked shaky on some shots. We know Michigan will come out flying tomorrow night and the buckeyes better be ready to play. The first 10 minutes will be huge and the first goal even bigger.
