Quite possibly the best game I have ever been to. The fights at the end were a nice touch. Love and Honor!

A nice touch except for the fact that Vogelhuber got suspended for tomorrow night because of it... Not worth it.

But regardless, that was far and away the best game Miami has played this year (obviously). I'm sure it helps that it's Michigan and the team ALWAYS seems hungry to beat Michigan (e.g. @learn2skate24 (Garrett Kennedy) Nothing better than waking up today knowing your playing Michigan later #leggggoo). But Miami-Michigan usually means a lot of penalty minutes and, other than the scuffle at the end, both teams seems focused and disciplined, which made for some great hockey. Everything seemed to be going well. Crisp passes, traffic in the Michigan crease, sustained pressure, and strong defense. Reichard also held some great saves, particularly that game-saving glove save in the last couple minutes.

I'm very sad I won't be able to watch tomorrow night but I'll be following the Twitter feed as much as possible. It should be a high-energy game, though hopefully still relatively clean. After tonight's performance I can definitely see tomorrow tilting either way, but a sweep sure would be sweet!

Congrats! Good to see you guys bounce back. Looking forward to seeing the Redhawks here in two weeks.

McKenzie out for tomorrow, too, due to the post-game extracurriculars.

Only DQ I'm seeing is Vogelhuber for leaving the bench.

Ah you're right. McKenzie is just a misconduct.

With the win, Miami moved into 7th place in the CCHA. 2 points behind #6 Michigan, 1 point in front of #8 Northern Michigan, and 3 points in front of #9 Michigan State, though Michigan State has 2 games in hand over everyone except Bowling Green. Needless to say, a win tomorrow (tonight) puts us at 6th in front of Michigan and potentially within a win of breaking back into the top 4. Obviously there is a lot of hockey left to be played, but it's nice to see things moving in the right direction.

If anyone is interested here is the link to a Michigan forum on a different website, I was amused by some of their comments.

They should head over to MiamiHawkTalk... they'd fit right in. Few hockey bands can compete with the Michigan hockey band, and Miami is not one of those few. However, Miami's hockey band is definitely better than the majority of others I've seen/heard (and I am certainly unbiased ;)). Of course, as long as they're playing the Miami Fight Song during the games, they'll sound great to me!

Box score at MURedHawks not even showing DQ now for Vogelhuber...hmm...

Interesting. I know they were talking during the post-game that Rico may challenge that since it was the end of the game and players were leaving both benches anyway.

Wait... I just looked. It still shows his penalty for "LEAVING BENCH" and I believe that's all it showed last night, as well. The other box scores are still specifically showing the DQ. Doubt there was any change. Plus, I believe they only assessed the DQ after reviewing video to confirm he left the bench to get involved.

It's probably a DQ. And, the number of dumb plays by Vogelhuber this year continues to climb. Swap out his experience for Czarnik's talent...guess that's a pretty even trade.

Was anyone else bothered by 'play to not lose' strategy in the 3rd? I loved the first two periods, but I was less than thrilled to witness them dumping it into the Michigan zone and hold the middle while Mich gained possession, got full speed and brought it into the Miami zone. It felt like a 20 minute penalty kill.

Look, I get it when you outclass the opposition, but not against Michigan. They have the ability to change the gqme on a dime. They did pick it up in the last couple mminutes (namely Reilly Smith), butI just wanted to see agression throughall 20 minutes.

There were definitely a few times in the third where it looked like they were pulling back and hoping to ride out the lead, but I thought overall they kept decent pressure up through the end. But yes, Reilly Smith was working incredibly hard out there. That 10-15 seconds in the final minutes where he single-handedly kept the puck in the Michigan zone, forcing Hunwick to stay in net and frustrating the entire Michigan squad, was an amazing individual effort.
