Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs vs. Michigan Wolverines

Any thoughts on the title game? I think the first thing we need to do is get Melrose a ticket to a nice place so he is far away from anoucning.

Game wise I think the diffrence will be in the PK of the Blue. Minnesota is going to get power plays it is a matter of stopping them from scoring.

Michigan was dominated last night and walked away with the win, but I do not think they played to their full potential last night. I think Michigan can go head to head against any NCAA team and hold their own in every statistical category of the game when they play their A game, and I really hope they bring it to the Bulldogs tomorrow night. As a diehard Wolverine fan I have seen what they can do to teams throughout the season when they kick it in gear, this game might be a lot closer than most think it will be.

I can't believe ESPN America had full day coverages from the March Madness, Sweet 16 and whatnot and then cannot be bothered to show the frozen four and championship game live. Instead they show the games a day after.

That surprises you? Its ESPN, they literally hate hockey and show it no respect whatsoever.

Well, ESPN America is more suited for the European crowd and carries plenty of hockey, and also has an own Sportcenter version produced for Europe i.e. more hockey highlights. They carry 2 NHL games every night in the playoffs in HD quality etc. If they could show the full ncaa basketball playoffs live from scratch I want to believe they could at least show last three hockey games live.

i dont know about hate but it seems espn gives hockey no airtime. Look at an average nigh of basketball highlights and then college bb finally if there isnt any relevant news such as anything else going on in the world then they show hockey.

COngrats Refs 9pp and a no goal. What more could the refs have done to beat the blue other than kick the puck in themselves. Thats right who needs to pretend to be impartial just flat out cheat. All that and it still went to OT to Win. 18 min of pp that makes an entire period well minus 2 min of pp. Thats right Refs pour yourself a cold one you earned it.

Hmmm.
At first I thought maybe there was a conspiracy against the Red Wings.
But now I can see there is a conspiracy against UofM, too.
Well, the common denominator is YOU. Refs must be conspiring against aarOOOn. That explains everything

I would like to see the Red Wings take a chance on Chad Langlais, the senior defenseman from Michigan. He's always been a solid defenseman, but has really broken out this year with his offense.

i am actually a Bowling Geen fan who passivly watches the blue. Honestly this is just tricle down from the NHL losing so many refs. The NHL refs are bad and college are just God awful.

I also agree on Chad Langlais they would be able to get him late
