U-M Hockey @ MN Sat Open Thread

Submitted by I Bleed Maize N Blue on February 2nd, 2019 at 7:24 PM

Once again U-M has an opportunity to sweep before it. Can they seize it? I have doubts, but am willing to be proven wrong. Fri 2nd period was absolutely dominated by U-M, with something like 16 shots before MN had 1, but it didn't pay off until 8:02 when van Wyhe finally put the puck in the net. Mike Pastujov got the game winner at 14:34 of the 2nd (Lavigne had one of the assists). Both MN goals came on the PP (out of 7), so stay out of the damn box!

Time: 8PM ET

Listen: MGoBlue Audio

Watch: HA! Go pound sand! (Actually at 11PM on FSD+, b/c Providence @ DePaul b-ball at 9 on FSD is so fucking important [Red Wings on FSD+.now])

Let's Go Blue!

If they control the flow of the game like they did last night, should get the W. A lot of patience, solid passing, and back checking yesterday.

I was really hoping the Big Ten adding hockey would be more televised games. Seems like the games are never on any kind of semi-national broadcast anymore. The CCHA days were better...

I live in Ohio, so I don't get FSD, although sometimes (like this weekend) I get games on an alternate Fox Sports channel.  BTN has been an improvement, since I should get to see a game every other weekend or so, but I wish they would do more of what they're doing tonight, which is broadcasting two of the B1G games and putting the third on TV where the teams' fans live.  Michigan-MSU at Yost is why I'm a hockey fan, and the game next Friday is (I think) not televised.  That's ridiculous.

We kill a major, and now we have a 5 on 3 for 2 minutes.  Nice.

Edit: Refs suck, but they're consistent.  So it's 5 on 3 for almost 2 minutes, and then 3 more minutes of a major after that.  Have to take advantage.
