Any thoughts...

Northern will be playing without three of their defenseman on Friday (Game misconducts after the 11/19 MSU game).

It will be refreshing to play a team that spends more time in the penalty box than we do

Hey, if you're not first, you're last.

All the way down to 4th in PIM, somebody tell Spinell & McKenzie to step their game up.

Right, Northern needs to stay out of the box.

NMU: 247 PIM -- Miami: 208 PIM (#1 and #2 in the CCHA)

Northern's a bit better at the "kill" than Miami by about 6%.

Both NMU and Miami aren't putting the puck in the net as well. Miami is 8th and NMU 9th in CCHA scoring offense. NMU gives up more goals: 2.90:2.40

Miami must be missing Camper and Miele this year.

http://www.muredhawks.com/sports/m-hockey/spec-rel/112911aab.htmlHow does NMU manage to have only 13 losses all time in the series, and also 15 losses in the last 25 games. Does not compute.

I thought I was missing something.

But if you want to talk about funny all-time records. Look at Miami's all time playing @ Yost. I think when we swept there 2 years ago it increased our win total to 3.

You are right, I was going by what the article said. I went back and looked here http://webb.nmu.edu/SportsAthletics/Sports/MensHockey/Game_Notes/2011Week8-Miami2.pdf and find that the series is:

<b>31 - 19 - 3</b> That's my count now, but the Game Sheet says 32 - 19 - 3. I don't know.

Sorry about that...

Unfortunately for NMU, Miami has won more often than not since the beginning of the 2002-2003 season.

It must be good for a fan of another team to even know who the hell Dane Hetland is.

I looked him up here: http://www.muredhawks.com/sports/m-hockey/mtt/hetland_dane00.html

I posted this on the NMU season thread--something else to read from _The Mining Journal_: http://www.miningjournal.net/page/content.detail/id/569600/NMU-hockey-will-be-shorthanded-when-Miami-visits-Friday.html?nav=5010

How is Northern's B2 feed? Single camera with radio or actual broadcast?

Single camera, typically with the radio broadcast over top. It's not great.

This is always my least favorite series of the year, as I like both Miami U and the fans of the school. There really isn't anything to make me really want to beat up on Miami like other teams, as there is no arrogance (see U of M and MSU) like some of the other "have's" in the conference.

Should be an interesting showdown. Every team that has came into Marquette this year has seemed to come in on some gaudy streak, save SCSU.

Not great, but tolerable if you want to watch the action rather than just listen.

Tonight should be interesting to see how NMU does without three of it's best defensemen. And, I think Cherniwchan is out tonight as well. Is that right?

I feel like I should respond to this, but I'm ashamed to say...I have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. Cliff notes version:

In Feb. 2007 Miami came into MQT... On Friday night, they beat us 4-1 or something like that... Not really a close game... At the end of the game, a certain NMU fan became frustrated... That fan was wearing a Chicken Hat... Well, as the game ended, Miami started to celebrate their victory... Enraged, the NMU fan chucked the Chicken Hat onto the ice... The hat landed on top of the net in front of the student section... Upon the hat landing on the net, Dane took notice... Maybe he found the chicken hat amusing and wanted to use it to impress chicks upon his return to Miami bar scene... I don't know... For whatever reason, Dane skated over, grabbed the hat, and stuffed it into his pants... It was done in a manner similar to what a 3 year old would do when they see a candy bar sitting on the table and no one around... This act enraged the NMU fan even more...

After spending some time at a local watering hole, the NMU fan in question was still stewing... Out of the blue, this NMU fan decided that he was going to call Dane himself and ask for his hat back... Like a man on a mission, the fan managed to get a hold of the room that Dane was staying in at the Marquette Ramada Inn... Fully believing that this was a joke, the Miami Players in the hotel played the NMU fan for a bit... This further frustrated the NMU fan... By the end, the NMU fan had enough fun... He ended the phone call by telling the Miami players that they had better hope that they are going home through Chicago... The fan told the players that if they were going to go over the Mackinac Bridge, there would be a bomb on there, and that the bridge would blow up with them on it...

Well, the players loved this and thought getting under the opposing fans skin was awesome... When word got back to Rico however, he was not amused...

Apparently Rico was so peeved, he called the NMU Athletic Department and Coach Walt Kyle about the indecent... It wasn't that he took the threat seriously... He just didn't like that we were calling his team in the hotel... This all became instant bulletin board material... The next night, NMU won and the student section had all sorts of fun with the incident... Rico made Dane give the hat back... It was handed to an NMU Athletic staff member, and then given back to the fan... We have since made amends with Rico, presenting him with a rubber chicken of his own...

Nice story! I'm glad Campus Safety or the Marquette Police were not involved that would have been "chicken-gate".
