Always feels better to win the 2nd one, right? I did not see it but it sounds like we played well enough to win that game. Held OSU to only 21 shots. A pity they still managed 4 goals.
I thought Ohio State during Friday's game had long lapses where they allowed your guys to execute well and take advantage of what we gave them and tonight we were even more absent the first two periods while I though the Spartans adjusted well from yesterday and wanted it worse.
Only in the third did OSU start putting the proper energy and intent into it and missed some great scoring chances but overall it was too little too late.
Congrats on the win, it provided a lot of enthusiam for your guys!
Didn't get to see either game thanks to BTN Plus, but I'm almost glad KHL was largely absent from the box score this weekend. Usually when we win or stay competitive you can count on those three names littering the scoresheet, but this weekend we put together two strong games and KHL was a combined -3.
Go Green! Go White! Go State!

Agreed. There were multiple heroes last night, including in the scoring sheet. Ghaffari with his second, Kamer with his first.
And how about Apap winning 2 of 3 faceoffs in MSU's d-zone after MSU iced the puck 3 times, a key reason MSU was able to keep OSU from scoring with the extra attacker.
Was messing around a bit checking out stats and Lewandowski is tied for highest scoring player in the B1G in terms of goals scored. He is tied with Calderone at 15. He's having an outstanding year but that still surprises me.
Hopefully he sticks around for a while.
(No segue) I guess if the OHL calls, you have to answer, Mitch. Will be hilarious to see him age out and end up being nailed against the boards here in a meaningless October game.
Looks like Jake Smith is out tonight after last night's hit to the head.
Woo boy, sounds like Mr. Eliot won't be using Cole for a reference any time soon.
Strange departure. The timing and the fact that playing time is certainly not a factor. Nevertheless, we have capable defenseman and this opens up a scholarship for a Cole recruit. We'll be just fine.
As for the game, it was a sloppy, grinding affair and I think it could have easily swung for either team.
It's amusing our goal was scored by Gatt after a nice set up. I thought we were fighting the puck all night and Gatt seemed to have an especially tough time.

About last night ...
Grist for the mill-type question: If goalie interference can be reviewed, why can't a call be made for a skater batting out a puck in the crease with a gloved hand?
In essence, this would be the same as a worker for a construction company hired by the athletic department committing crimes. To blame an entire department for all of that is nothing but vindictive and opportunistic.
I'm not trying to be mean or short-sighted, only offering a legal opinion which BTW, I have a certain level of expertise.
Like I said, ultimately when the legal system has run it's course then we can get back to who's right and who's wrong and the official investigations are far from complete.
Right now I'm more interested in the most likely scenario of us meeting again in the first round of the B1G tournament.
67.1 A defending player, except the goalkeeper, shall not be permitted to fall on the puck, hold the puck or gather the puck into the body or hands when the puck is within the goal crease.
PENALTY—Penalty shot/optional minor; an additional penalty shall not be assessed.
