    I tried to do quick numbers since the start of the B1G hockey conference and got these stats for at least 3 games played at Mariucci:
    Michigan = 0-4
    Minnesota-Duluth = 3-1
    MSU = 1-4-1
    OSU = 0-6
    PSU = 1-5
    SCSU = 2-1
    Wisconsin = 0-3-1

    Harvard, Merrimack, Minnesota State, and Vermont each have one win and no losses at Mariucci. I might have missed something but Minnesota has played well at home in the B1G and most of their home losses have been against non-conference foes.

What concerned me yesterday (not enough to ever doubt the outcome of the gam though) was Racine. First let me inform you that I have no problem with Racine. He's winning games, that's all I can ask from him. However both goals last night seemed weak. As long as our offense is on-point we can overcome that. When it is shut down we can't (I point to the 12/12 Minnesota games as my evidence).

    Racine has played well lately. The first Ferris goal on the PP was a point blast that he didn't see- and was deflected. The second was a case where he got left out in the wind by his defense and let a shot go under his arm. At that point I think the team had already counted a win and were playing out the clock.

    Um, he's sick. My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw Ferris pass out at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious.

    Not surprised just disappointed in that they have a propensity to think that all they have to do is put their sticks on the ice and a "W" naturally follows, that they are somehow "Entitled".

    That's a good way of putting it. I'm gonna use that.

    Right.
    Whatever you say.

    While we are playing OSU and PSU the Gophers are playing 2 @ MSU and 2 v. the Badgers. Sparty and Bucky are a combined 13-33-10 this season. I do not see the Gophers dropping ANY points in those 4 games. So just how do you expect us to gain any ground? The way I see it we are now in the position of absolutely needing a minimum of 4 points this weekend. You can't play down to the level of the competition and expect to win any titles.
    First, we play Ferris then deal with the Gophers.

    The B1G Ten regular season title is nothing but a banner anyway. As long as they finish 1 or 2 for seeding purposes in the B1G Tourney, it will be fine. I'd rather win the autobid and roll into the NCAA's playing well.

    I'd rather listen to our homers than their homers. I laughed when the badger team said the CCM line would get cold sitting on the bench b/c we were taking penalties... until Compher scored a SHG and nearly popped another right after the faceoff.

    4 one goal games against them have cost not only you guys first place but Ohio state a chance at 3rd not that its the same just throwing that out there.
