Oof, sounds like we had a rough night. I think we'll play well at home tonight but I feel that this team needs the holiday break.
1. Looking to salvage some pride in the waning seconds of the game, some smallish MSU forward (I think Lambdin) puts the puck in the net - but it's just after the horn sounds. Lavigne retrieves the puck, then chucks it at said forward.
2. Boka uses his 5-inch advantage in the handshake line to prove his toughness to Osburn, who naturally takes offense, and the dancing begins. Whatever it was, in earned Boka a 10-minute game misconduct.
But as they say ya know "to the victors go the spoils". Or is that "spoiled"?

Should lead to some interesting emotions tonight at Munn

Great bounce back. And we win the weekend on aggregate 5-4!
Now a good three week break (with the U18 thrown in) and rest up for the lamest GLI of all time.
Go Green! Go White! Go State!

Former MSU commit Ty Farmer who seems not to have fit into Cole's plans has commited to U Mass.
Need a little help: When most recently (before Farmer) did a player who signed an LOI for MSU hockey back out and head to another D1 program?

Also anybody with some in's with the student section know why they no longer do the "big go green" chant anymore? Now they just try to do go green, go white within the student section which is NOT the same.
Assuming no one leaving early, It is looking like 5 incoming for next year. A goalie, 2 dmen, and 2 forwards. I’d expect one of the two recent dman commits next year and BrindAmour as the other forward.
If that is correct it would give MSU a top goalie, a smaller offensive dman, a big dman, and two big talented forwards.
All year I didn't care that the game against the U-18 team was in Plymouth but last night I was disappointed I could not attend it at Munn. It doesn't count but no one wants to lose to those kids. Now for a well deserved break.
The win against UM was a fantastic time. The team was obviously thrilled in the post game.
Actually despite the fact that this was exhibition, it couldn't have worked out much better for our program. Cole started and stuck with Minney for the duration against his old program, and his shutout may have been a confidence booster, something he can use should he be called upon in the second half. He got the second star and Khoderenko (another former NDTP'er) the first star. MSU's special teams got a big workout and that always helps. And for the team, the weekend provided a chance to keep tuned up between Michican week and the Holiday tournament.
I suppose if there is a distraction, its the large contingent of pro scouts and I'm sure there were plenty eyes (and notes) on #55. Gotta wonder if that's the next Spartan to give up some eligibility.
Hope everyone has a merry Christmas!
