    For anyone intimidated by the numbers that the Dump Skunks are bringing into this weekend, consider this.

    Overall, they have scored 91 goals (4th most in the NCAA) and 29 PPG with a PP% of 35.8 (1st in NCAA).
    Now take out the 38 goals and 13 PPG they scored against Stonehill and Lindenwood combined.
    That leaves them with just 53 goals (which would rank 48th) and 16 PPG with a PP% of 25.8 (10th).

    Overall, they average 4.6 GPG and have a 2.9 GAA. But in the Big Ten, they average just 3.1 GPG with a 3.2 GAA.

    Not saying they don't have any good players, but they are statistically the definition of flat-track bullies this season.


    Michigan's got one good (ok, prolific) forward line of sophomores, and if MSU can slow them down, I see good things for our boys this weekend.

    • How criminally stupid is it that Friday night's lineup on BTN is a wrestling TRIPLEHEADER instead of this game.

        Don't forget prolific, smooth-skating soph offsensive dman Seamus Casey - he's actually UMich's leading scorer.

        • no 7 vs no 15 in hockey

          wrestling triple header is
          1 v 11
          3 v unranked
          6 v 9
          B1G wrestling has 8 of the top 25 ranked teams, B1G hockey has 4 of the top 20 teams

          Let's face it, we're a wrestling conference
          Also, people in Iowa really like their wrestling which is why that unranked Purdue at #3 Iowa will also be reaired at 2 am.

            No doubt!

            It's volleyball conference too, so who knows how that's going to preempt us next Fall!

            • I see no point in the B1G hockey league existing if they aren’t even going to show the games on tv regularly. That was like the biggest part of their sales pitch before the league started. College hockey was scammed.

                I suppose when the concept was fully fleshed out, they didn't see the big trend coming. Seems like its all about streaming revenue now (B1G+), like Peacock and NBC. It's surprising how much we're seeing it with big-time basketball and even football.

                • Easily the worst period I’ve seen MSU play since the BC series. Looks like their nerves got the best of them and UofM came right out and punched them right in the mouth. Now we get an opportunity to see how well they handle adversity. Lots of hockey left, but they had better bounce back hard or this could get ugly.

                  • If you were looking for the definition of "s**t the bed" that was it in spades.

                      That was a good ole fashioned butt whuppin. After that second goal, MSU was just plain intimidated enough to totally forget its identity. Let's see what they're made of on Saturday. Not much time to figure it out.

                        I would have preferred game 1 to be at Yost. The team didn’t need the added pressure of giving the home crowd a win in what was long agreed to be the biggest game at Munn in many years. We looked very tight and fumbled with the puck all night.

                        With that being said, UM played far more soundly defensively than any opponent except maybe BC has shown us all year. We couldn’t get anything to the net whereas we normal just bombard opposing goalies. I’m sure many UM folks were just as surprised as we were. Hopefully we loosen up on the road tonight.

                            Certainly took some of the sting out of Friday night. Huge win, especially for the mentality of our team.

                              UM's turnover fest in the 2nd reminded me of MSU of year's past. That wipeout by Duke (#5) epitomized the clownshow.

                              • Wow. If that was not a perfect script of an ending, what are you looking for? Guys like Russell, Dorwart, Shoudy know how to handle The Moment.
                                State throttled Minnesota's power play, played hard end-to-end and earned this.
                                And, I think my voice is slowly recovering. Thanks Munn for being LOUD.
