The team sure didn't give them much to cheer for. I got the impression that the play they showed for the 2nd and 3rd was over. Alas, they didn't....
No way we get to the Joe like that.

the first period was great. They had jump, they took advantage of the chances they were given. I was feeling good, thought they were really playing a solid brand of hockey. Of course then the rest of the game came about. The second period was just awful. Just a collection of all the bad habits this team has had all year. They were lucky to get out of that period still holding the lead (although it was down to one goal, not three).
The third period looked more like they were out there just trying not to lose. They didn't attack at all, they hung back did their best to hold NMU off, The results of that were mixed at best. Racine turned away some shots and they did scramble their way out of a few other jams, but they aren't winning any tournament playing like that. We got through it tonight, let's see what tomorrow brings. I know Northern will come harder right from the start What will Michigan do?
