I would think you guys would too - Western can't score.
MSU went 1-1-1 against Western this year.
But I think Michigan could beat either of those teams - the only team I thought would beat Michigan in a best of 3 right now is Miami. You guys finished high enough to avoid them regardless of what happens. If you face them in a one and done - anything is possible.
And that is why the shootout point was so big! No chance of going to Miami in round 2. It won't matter if you guys finish off Alaska, but I didn't want any part of Miami in Oxford. I think M could definitely beat WMU. Notre Dame would be tough. At Yost the games were really close. At ND it was less so, though I still felt like Michigan played with them. I'd be much happier in Kzoo.
Still a mountain to climb. I'd love to see them drubbing NMU out of the rink tonight and get things cranked up for a tough series next weekend.
