      I am ecstatic with last weekend's sweep. However, 2 wins against a Buckeye team that only has 1 conference win this season can't be considered an indicator.

      Let's see how we do against B1G 1st place MSU this weekend. We know we can skate with them after spliting the series last time. Honestly, we looked like the better team for a good chunk of that loss too. 60 minutes, both nights, let's go!

        Exactly. We looked like clearly the better team for 4 1/2 periods last time. Play hard, stay composed, and take two big wins this weekend.

          Presumably, the lack of recent posts reflects what everyone thinks of the teams play….

            16th in the pairwise is not an exciting place to be.

            I did get excited after Friday's win and looking at the conference schedule. The 2 teams ahead of us in the conference only have their games vs. Michigan left and a buy the other week. If we take 11 of the 12 points left available to us we could finish as high as 3rd in the conference. Can we sweep ND at home? Maybe. Can we get at least 5 on the road from Minnesota? Less likely but it's hockey and anything is possible.

            This weekend is huge. 4 or more points should get us home ice. Should have swept at PSU, then securing home ice would be easier.

            I will be very sad if this weekend are the last 2 games at Yost this season.

              This season seems like Groundhog Day. Every year Mich. it seems, sits on the bubble and finds itself needing to mount a run or win the B Ten final. I wonder what is needed to get them in a better place. Better conditioning so we don't have the 3rd period collapse. That means both physically and mentally.
              To make the run and get into the NCAA playoffs will also leave the 'gas tank' pretty well used up not much energy left to go very far against tougher teams.

              Hoping for the best but not going to hold my breath. I used to get a 'funk' at the end of the season when they would be eliminated, but not so the last few years. Now I just move on to other things. I wish it wasn't so.

                At this point, I rely on the past. Remembering that Mel took a team to the FF in his first season only to struggle the second. Hopefully this is dealt with between Coach N’s second and third seasons.

                But I totally fear that we have zero D development, so…. The frustration seeing these guys play at such a high and low level in the same freaking game is tough to deal with.

                  There exists the very real scenario where Michigan finishes closer to last place in the conference than first. That's only happened three times since 1986-87.

                    A weekend sweep. With a likely return visit for the Irish in a few weeks. Although, theoretically we could take enough points at Minnesota next weekend to finish 3rd in the B1G.

                      How did they look yesterday? Hope to get 5 points next weekend?

                        That was probably the best weekend they've played this season. Solid effort throughout, which as we know, has been unusual for an entire weekend. I wouldn't bet on it, but if they play like that, 5 points at Minnesota isn't out of the question.

                          Quick reminder that B1G first round tickets are on sale today if you didn’t add them to your season ticket series.

                            I can't remember if I paid for the if necessary Sunday game or not. I do see in my account the friday & saturday quarterfinals and the note that the if necessary game will be sent Sunday morning.

                            Last season I failed at buying the playoff tickets and stressed trying to find seats near mine when logging in at 10 am hoping for the best.


                            Looking forward to watching tonight's game. I love the Michigan vs. Minnesota match ups typically. So much talent, speed and fun to watch every year.

                            Nice to know we are hosting games next week. Gotta see this weekend's outcome for who it will be. Most likely Notre Dame and I really don't want to play them again. Of course the way all the B1G teams are playing right now I don't know that there are any safe match-ups.

                              What a disappointing game.

                                I can't decide whether to think that was just a terrible, lackadaisical effort by Michigan, or to wonder why Minnesota didn't win the league.
