Michigan vs. Miami - 2/4/12

Well it was certainly a spirited affair, especially near the end of the game. The teams combined for 98 penalty minutes and two DQs. Chris Brown and Will Weber dropped the mitts, so both won't be playing next week.

I actually saw both games this weekend and the Wolverines really dominated, especially in the first game. The thing that disappointed me was that Miami didn't come out with that fire that I've grown so used to seeing out of them. Anybody remember that great (and controversial) Mason Cup championship game a few years back between these two teams? That's the type of Miami team I was expecting to see this weekend and didn't.

As usually Hunwick played really great. Made some terrific stops. However on that one goal that was reviewed and ruled a non-goal, Hunwick can thank Lee Moffie for helping him out on that save.

I thought this was one of Moffie's best games, certainly this season. Yeah, he scored two goals in the game, but was just as effective in his own end playing alongside Merrill. I thought Merrill was good, not great in the game. And I don't think he really had to be considering how good the team as whole played.

BTW, anyone else think that the CCHA might hand down a suspension to Guptill on that spear near the end of the game?
