    Two of the things that drives me crazy is a coaching style, not the players.
    One is why do we collapse in around our net allowing our opponent to cycle the puck unchallenged on the perimeter picking out the shot they want like it's a PP?
    Second, when we line change we just send the puck down the ice turning it over so now our fresh legs have to first be on defense and have to get the puck back using up most of their shift before we can go on the offense. Many coaches bring the puck behind their net and 4 guys over the boards and the guy holding the puck behind the net changes as the puck moves up ice. Now everyone is fresh for a SUSTAINED offensive push!

    No Preston and Westlund last night caused us to suit up the freshmen and no fault to them but with the shuffling of the lines and other factors our chemistry was adversely affected.
    And as usual I wasn't impressed with the officiating. We had that 2 on 1 breakaway in the 3rd and I'd like to know what the linesman thought he saw when he blew offsides as I was sitting on that blue line and never saw offsides! A goal then would have made a huge difference.
    Penn State leads at 33 points now, we're in a 3 way tie with Minnesota & Michigan State at 31 with ND knocking at that door with 28.
    Worse part is now we're on the bubble in the pairwise at 15th!
    Let's just hope we can have a healthy team after the bye week and get the last 4 regular season wins.

    That looked just like the playoff game those 2 played last March. No energy what so ever for most of the first two periods. Once again a pass to no one from behind the net leads to an opponent goal. Lazy unnecessary penalty also cost them a goal. Just things that shouldnt be happening that were happening back in October and November. Also both of those plays were made by Seniors who definitely shouldn't be making mistakes like that this time of year.

    My main complaint against last night against Penn State is we let them get an early jump on us and it took a bit for us to get back to speed. I was not impressed with the officiating in a number of areas and it took a coach's challenge for them to assess the correct penalty against Penn St.
    At least we got 2 of the 3 points last night and getting all 3 tonight is CRUCIAL!
    That being said we may be without Preston and Westlund. Upper body for Quinn on that big hit he took and stitches on the leg for Westlund.
    That 2nd Penn State goal came off a couple lucky bounces. Ohio state pretty much dominated the rest of the gane and probably should have win it but 2 of 3 points is better than none. Your right they need all 3 tonight with that bye ciming next weekend.

    Best game I thought since our win at Wisconsin.
    Yea it was just a weird bounce. They had one friday night that took a bounce stayed in the zone and scored off a rebound. Big weekend ahead need a sweep

    Much better game last night. Getting off to the fast start certainly helped. Tommy was really good when needed last night. Still things to clean up like turnovers but overall they played 5 decent periods of hockey all weekend. Michigan scored 4 goals and 3 of them were off wierd bounces. Back in 1st place also. On a down note 7 times niw they have failed to score on a 5 minute major and last night was the 2nd time this year they have failed on 2 in the same game. Bring on the Lions in a battle fir 1st place next weekend before the bye week. With that byecweek coming this might be the most important series of the year. Need a sweep with the teams having a chance to gain 6 points that weejend

    They just cant score 5 on 5 right now and evey every little mistake is ending up in the net. Two of the Michigan goals were hustle plays and another was just a bad one on Tommy. After the first it was a pretty even game but Michigan dominated that first period and set the tone of the night.

    Yeah, they acted like they never played the Big Ice before. Kept doing dump & chase and it's too big for that, could never get to the puck first.
    The Gophers kept bringing the puck into our zone on their sticks picking the gaps.

    That was the worst weekend of hockey in a couple years. They were dominated in 5 of the 6 periods and never really controlled much of the play at all. Dropping to 10 in the pairwise is about as good as you can expect when losing to a team in the 30's when the weekend started. On to Michigan hope a good week of practice gets this past weekend erased from memory.

    I also just finished watching Wisconsin beat Michigan State so guess who's now in first place in our conference even in spite of only getting one point last night?
    Snowden played very well especially the last 10 minutes when Ohio State couldn't get out of the zone. Nice to be in first place and the two teans directly behind them play each other next weekend. Take care of business on the road and build the lead.
