    And I would hate everything.

If they split, I understand that, but there should be a head-to-head tiebreaker imo.

    The Chargers got rooked in that loss tonight. The refs let a Blatant call go against BG and 15 seconds later made a call against Huntsville in OT. And once again UAH loses.
    Huntsville just took too many penalties down the stretch.

    What I'd really like is to just click on the link as posted and have it work.

    I figure by 9 30 pm est tonight we will have most of these matchups figured out.
    what podcast app are you using?

    EDIT: If you listen to MTU hockey on TuneIn, you can also listen to our podcast there. I prefer to not use the anchor player but anchor is great for distribution and the player makes life easier for those that choose not to use one of the many podcast apps. I have like 12 on my phone so I could verify the podcast shows up, etc. I actually transitioned to using pocket casts because it allows the patreon feed to show up.

MTU has no one to blame but themselves for being 0-2 in supertime.
    Or UAH being 1-5 in supertime. Not that it's the main reason we are where we are, but five potential points given away wouldn't help anyone. I think it really only affects things if 1) you're in a lot of supertimes and 2) if you win or lose a lot of them.

    The Atlantic Hockey weekly column did something interesting this week, looking at what the standings would reflect under the old point system. So if you go back to 2 points for a win, 1 for a tie, and no 3x3/shootout bonus, here's how that would currently shake out:

    45 - Minnesota State
    41 - Bemidji
    31 - Northern
    29 - Fairbanks
    28 - Bowling Green
    28 - Michigan Tech
    22 - Lake Superior
    14 - Anchorage
    12 - Ferris
    10 - Huntsville

    So not a lot of drastic differences. What did change? Starting from the top:

    -Fairbanks edges ahead of BG instead of sitting even
    -BG falls into a tie with Tech
    -Tech could pass NMU, instead of just being able to tie them in the standings
    -Ferris is only one game behind UAA
    -UAH is not already eliminated on points

    So in short, no one is really benefitting greatly or being grossly disadvantaged by the 3 point system.

    Yes, I stand corrected. The "note" at the bottom of the tie breaker rules clarifies that when one team is eliminated the teams still tied become a "new" tie and we go back to the top.
