    CCHA Quarterfinal: (5) Michigan State at (4) Miami; March 9th-11th

    We've got 12 days to talk this one up, so let's get it going.

    Miami was sitting tied for 7th in the CCHA two weekends ago. 4 wins against ND and OSU have secured the home ice. Michigan State is also on a good run, winners of 6 of their last 8.

    Both are in the NCAAs as of right now, but the only thing we can all agree on is that you don't want to be sweating the Pairwise at home on the final weekend of the year.

    Should be fun. Discuss.

    And the reverse: GO SPARTANS, beat BlasiHawks!

    Edit: Maybe Ricohawks sounds better.

    My vote is for RicoHawks.
    Now, does the RicoHawk face left or right? That is the real question.

    As a Spartan fan I'd have to say this was the one pairing I didn't want to see as things played out over the last few weeks. Even more so than BC, Michigan, or Ferris, Miami was the one team we weren't able to match up with in the regular season.

    The one thing that has changed since the earlier series is that State's power play has improved over the past month. So if the Redhawks come out over-amped and overdo the aggressive/chippy style they are known for we might be able to make them pay, unlike the series in January. Still, when you look at Miami's record over the past couple of months they appear to be in a groove and are going to be a tough out. I'm hoping State can steal a game which may end up making the difference for staying on the right side of the NCAA bubble.

    I only just saw this thread. You Miami folks should have bumped it more!

    Anyways, the Ricohawks were my vote for least favorite matchup besides Michigan. Not because I think Michigan is tougher, but i'd rather not play them any more than we have to since it's a lot of bonus stress.

    Our OT loss was hard fought and a great game, but I missed the second game which sounds like it was a lot more like previous years. But i feel like this is the most difficult matchup the spartans could have gotten. Miami is one team we haven't matched up well with in years.

    Funny, I kinda feel the same way about Michigan St. We've only met 4 times in the past 2 seasons and both series were in East Lansing. Not really sure what to expect

    Just read on CHN Miami is 0-9 all time in CCHA playoffs against MSU. Time for this trend to end.

    Couldn't believe that when I read it. Then again, these two teams haven't run into each other in the CCHA Tournament in 6 years, so I guess it makes sense. I prefer to look at it this way: Michigan State has NEVER won a playoff game in Oxford. Let's keep it that way!
