If there was ever a question whether BG and MTU had a rivalry in the nWCHA I think we have an answer.
Same to you in best luck the rest of the way. See you in 6 weeks?
McLame, McWhine, McBane, whatever....😀
It is a great rivalry and I hope we meet them again in the playoffs.
Fantastic Coach Joe Show this morning. Loved the "Stripes" reference. Bring on the Beavers. This should be a great weekend of hockey!
MTU Hockey fan since I was carried to a game in 1986 - for those counting... that's a lot of depressing hockey. Still love it.
Surrounded by Badger Red in Wisconsin. Such an ugly color, but the beer and cheese are delicious...

Team building.... Go you Huskies!
I pretty much picture this speech happening before the Saturday Bg game...
I must have missed the "Stripes" comment, what was that?
He threw Mel under the bus a little as well when talking about goalie decisions (gotta like that). After the series at UofM last season Mel was pretty steamed. Didn't want to see either Wintjes or Kero again. But Joe saying Redmond wasn't ready. Joe's timeline is a little off or Angus got ready real fast because it was the very next series against northern that Angus started his run.

Crunching some numbers here; obviously MTU would have to sweep BSU to have any real hope of home ice playoffs. If MTU can pull that off they would have 43 points. BSU would remain at 39. If BSU, worst case, sweeps UAF the following weekend they would come in to the final weekend with 45 points.
Best case final weekend, MTU sweeps NMU and ends up with 49 points. (That will be a tall order based on NMUs play this season) MTU would then have to hope MSU limits BSU to only 4 points or less in their final series. If MSU could help MTU by sweeping BSU, MTU would only need to secure 2 points in the NMU series as I believe tying BSU would give MTU home ice due to the head to head result.
There are way to many scenarios to really get to worked up yet but if MTU can take care of business this weekend there is still hope of home ice.
I like this team!
Let's go Tech! Let's go Huskies!
Even though we can't count on it, I think MSU will "help" us out and beat up on BSU during "rivalry" weekend.
It's hard to say MSU will sweep because they will have most likely clinched by then and won't have that much to play for. Also the same could be said for NMU, will they have second locked up? will they be in competition for an at large. ?
I'm more worried about our injury situation to tell the truth.

Not much injury detail on the JSH, as you would expect.

NMU (#20 pairwise) and BGSU (#19) have to play all out and hope they get some help to win the WCHA and get an NCAA at large bid. IMO they will need to be at #15+ in order to get in. How many times has BGSU just missed an NCAA bid recently?
Michigan Tech vs Northern Michigan:
Let's be honest...
No external motivation required when those two team play.
They could be playing for 9th and 10th in the conference and those games would be played all out.
