    Ann Arbor has been on a roll. After a 1-7 January, they went 5-2-1 in February. Anything could happen here. Three games would not be a shock.

    Red didn't "give up" on any of the four goaltenders (including the walk-on who dressed the last two weeks), but is basically auditioning the player who practices the best. Racine has stood out, going 3-0-1 in his last four, but was extremely sharp this past weekend. None of them have a save % over 89%. He has rotated Janny, Racine and Rutledge all season giving them opportunities to grab the reins. Racine finally has- but he definitely is benefitting from *better* defensive play in front of him where forwards are backchecking and forechecking harder and the defense has stabilized with Merrill's return in January.

    The other point is, Michigan's offense has perked up, getting solid contributions from three lines now.

    Real bad news for the Cat's.........

    I just heard from a NMU player that Matt Thurber broke his leg at practice today.

    Losing your leading scorer a couple days before the playoffs start, OUCH!

    TBD as of today. I am guessing that Comcast local will pick it up for SE Michigan- for Friday.

    The goaltending was brutal for most of the season. Janny believe it or not did shut out WMU right before the holiday break. Otherwise, I agree, he has let in some real bad goals this season. Rutledge was equally poor at times, especially in closer games in the third period. Racine has really improved, at least since the beginning of the year- where he was taking a great deal of time recovering from shots and was in poor position for rebounds. He also had a tendency to drift off his angles and over-commit allowing for easy cross ice passes-goals. Some of that is the improved defensive coverage, also. It was really poor much of the season, but has been much better. The only exception was the ND series in early February where the team got run out of South Bend.

    Matt's had his share of... well... we'll call it 'adversity', in his college career, but it was great to see things working out for him this year. Sad to see his college career end this way. Good luck to former Badger Matt Thurber for a full and quick recovery.

    Wish I could say the same to the rest of you guys, but since you waxed us early in the year, Bucky sort of needs you all to fall off the TUC cliff. Nothing personal... so...umm...I guess, ...have a nice off season?

    The last time I was at Yost for a game was in 2010. I think we parked somewhere in back of Yost near the IM bldg. I'm going this Friday and was wondering if you M fans could tell me a good place to park (free, I'm cheap) off of Hoover maybe and then walk a little to Yost. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    There's also the neighborhood across State Street from Yost (look on a map). When we used to drive to games, we'd always find parking there. But now we walk.

    If you're >30 minutes before game time, you should have no problem finding street parking in either the neighborhood East of State (as alfa describes here) or North of Hoover, just watch for the one way signs, and some of the two way streets only have parking on one side. Not a terrible walk from those neighborhoods.

    There's also a parking lot at Hill (north of Hoover) and Division. A little further walk, but usually has open spots.

    I think they've upped the price for parking in the University lot next to Yost to $10.

    Maybe you got some more info, but it's a good thing you asked- I just got an e-mail from the athletic department telling us to drive early to the game- there are multiple events happening on campus. So come early.
