U-M Hockey vs FYS - DitD Sat Open Thread

Submitted by I Bleed Maize N Blue on February 9th, 2019 at 6:09 PM

Well, to a fan, a 5-3 win over FYS is pretty satisfying, though it wasn't perfect. I think a team that loses the first night is going to bring better effort the next, and this season U-M hasn't been good at overcoming that to get the win. And getting a win is pretty important, given the 2nd place tie w/MN, being 2 pts ahead of ND, only 3 pts ahead of FYS, and 5 ahead of last place WI. Getting the highest seed possible for the BTT and winning it seems like the way to get to the NCAA.

So on to the Duel in the D in Pizza Pizza Arena.

Big Ten Standings, going in to today's games:

1. Ohio State, 38 points, 7 games remaining
2t. Michigan, 27 points, 6 games
2t. Minnesota, 27 points, 5 games
4. Notre Dame, 25 points, 7 games
5. Michigan State, 24 points, 5 games
6. Penn State, 23 points, 7 games
7, Wisconsin, 22 points, 7 games

A second place finish gets you a home game for the semifinals, if you get past the first round series.  With only 5 points separating second and last, every game is very important.
