We have three of them.

We have a pulled groin, a half pint gamer and a bench warmer that probably will never see a Division I game unless the first two are out.

What is Michigan's goalie status?

Not as good as last year, or the year before. Obsession.

With the loss, we're 7th. If Lake State doesn't get 3 pts against Northern (they are currently losing), we will play them next weekend at Yost. If they come back and win, and OSU gets no points against Miami tonight, we would get OSU.

7th place, and Lake State it is.

It's quite odd to sit here after the last regular season game, wondering if we have 1, 2, or 3 weeks left before thoughts turn to October.

Yeah. I think we'll get passed Lake State but a potential second round series at Munn would be quite interesting.

About the only thing I'm looking forward to is at least 2 more games at Yost. Beyond that, I'm comfortable with whatever happens. Doesn't mean I'll like it, but I'm prepared for it.

Seems like this team has come down with an incurable disease. No matter how many times you battle it week after week, it doesn't go away. We are prepared to accept the end of the season. No surprises here, no tears.

However, I don't want this season to end next week because of the #1 risk heading into the season without a true #2 backup goalie. Hunwick was the cure for the ND offense tonight with a few questionable goals, hopefully that's not the case for the ailing Lake State offense.

So Michigan finishes in 7th place in the regular season, with 14 wins, which is the same number of wins the 2nd place MSU team had. The difference is the ability to convert losses into tie games. M has had one tie in two seasons (only one OT game in two seasons!), while the teams that finished ahead of them had 5 or 6 tie games, plus the benefit of the artificial shootout points.

Couldn't say it any better.

Still looking forward to Hockey in Detroit, and since we've been to quite a few FF's w/o Michigan, this one will be nothing different. But it does suck that a mere 45 miles from your home, the Frozen Four will be taking place, and the season where you can get killer home ice advantage has not really been taken advantage of.

Oh, well.

I do hope quite a few of you still plan on playing in the Posters game. :D

Well put. The artificial points aside, Michigan can only blame themselves- losing games at Yost to BG, NMU and MSU really hurt any chances for a bye. I can't say I have seen a worse second period this season- but there are plenty of candidates. And that doesn't even include the annual botched goal screwing from the CCHA officiating, which, at a stretch may have changed the momentum of this game.

I think I've accepted that Michigan hockey will end in 2 weekends.

Hopefully we'll beat Lake State. But after that it's off to play at Munn and while I could see it being a 3 game series, I don't see it favoring Michigan.

Since I don't believe Bowling Green or Western will pull off an upset, I'm stating Michigan will play State the following weekend. Unless Michigan loses to LSSU...as I belive that is more likely than a BGSU or WMU win.

It's like you are getting ready for the death of a family member here.

Beating State in the playoffs isn't that hard, NMU's done it twice in a row. ;)

Just take them to OT in game 3.

Some very dangerous teams (Michigan, UNO, Alaska) that could shake up the playoffs quite a bit.

IMHO, that's being rather generous.

yes, they have the talent to do something. We just don't know what that something is....

Perhaps you're not familiar with Michigan's history at Munn. I think they've only won in East Lansing two times in the past decade. Yet they're suppose to win two in one weekend? Now you can understand our negative outlook :)

Perhaps we shouldn't discount LSSU, either.

I can't say with a straight face that Michigan can put two or three solid games together. Haven't done it all season. To think they can do it at Munn, with presumably a backup netminder, is ludicrous.

+ a bunch.

Our last "sweep" was against Bowling Green, with a loss to Wisconsin inbetween. Before that, Western (I don't count a SH loss a sweep), And before that, Lake State.

So only twice vs. the same team, in one weekend, have we won both games. That's pretty pathetic.

I seriously have my doubts that we need to make reservations in East Lansing....

Did we ever close out the 2007-2008 season thread? Maybe we can bump it in a couple weeks and see what happens next year.

Big Chill Seating Chart? Opinions! Can't wait for the game!
Seating Chart! (http://www.steve.weston.name/images/Arenas/big-chill-seating-chart.pdf)

Also I have seen michigan when they are on, and I have seen them play when they are off! If they show up to play I can see them making it to the Semi's. Going to be Interesting to see them make a run without Hogan? They are saying doubtful for playoffs, do you think he will be back if they get past the first round?
