We were in section 26, props to the entire section to our right rooting for the Huskies.

Lavigne was very very good. Tech was aggressive and won a lot of puck battles. Several Tech rushes were flat out skill based. Wish L'Esperance would have dropped it back with a 3x1 developing.
Almost scored with less than 4:00 minutes as we all thought the late man was going to bury it. Fun game to watch.

I was in sec 28 as well. the row just in front of everyone standing the whole game. Great to see so many Tech fans there. And LOUD too!

Tech out shot Michigan in the first period, but Michigan pretty much carried the play for the first 25 minutes of the game. After Michigan went up 2-0 Tech controlled much of the play.

That winning goal.... Ouch. Goaltending and dumb penalties the difference last night.

Back to sec 28 tonight, a couple rows closer to the action. GO HUSKIES hopefully better results tonight.

Just saw the highlights- which only showed 2 of Tech's goals- both were really good. One with that great pass behind the net, the other being very opportunistic of a bobble by Lavigne.

And we made that one up on the game winner- being opportunistic of a bad play behind the net. So both teams are solid.

BTW, Techies noting their dominance in the 2nd- Red agrees very much so.

Oh, and no comment about Score-O??? Holy cow, we missed that!?!?!?!?

Score-o was the highlight of the game. Nice crowd on hand to honor the 1996 NC's. 5800 announced. As far as the game, it was a repeat of their effort on Friday versus Union. Take 2 goal lead, dribble it away. Except they managed to steal the game in the end. Oh, and you missed Lohan playing finally. They moved Martin up on the 4th line from defense. I betcha that Lafontaine is in goal tonight.

I assume you mean Luke, who is playing better, and not Cutler, who sat the last home game....

(again, Cutler is a great guy- really fun to talk to, and I hope he can work his way into playing time...)

Why can't we score more? I really thought the offense would be better than this. Also, goaltending is killing us, 2 goals on 14 shots isn't going to get it done usually.

When a team is struggling in goal, it affects the offense as well as forwards play more defensively and take fewer chances.

That score 0 could never happen again in a million tries, got a kick out of that. I hope the other goalie plays for UM, Lavigne flat out number 1 star last night.

For the Tech fans, Gerrie and Smith remind me a lot of Pat Mikesch.

No, Luke played defense, Cutler was on 4th line and looked lost.

Tech dominated the 2nd. Michigan does not deserve to be winning this game

I just wish refs would call a fair game. I was clearly goalie interference on Michigan's last goal and a clear pull-down on the Tech player shortly after that was wasn't called. it really takes away from the game. Even the Michigan announcers thought Michigan got away with one.

Terrible. Totally lucky to come away with a tie. Not sure what they are practicing, but it seems that they have regressed.

Sadly, too, Lafontaine didn't do enough to keep the spot. So we get more rotation.
