playing a solid sixty minutes of hockey and just dominating Northern to get their first home sweep of the season (that still sounds strange to be saying that at this point in the season).
I was certainly hoping after Friday nights not so good game that we would see something like this, but it was a pleasant surprise to actually see them put it together for an entire game. No matter where Michigan goes next weekend the competition is going to be tougher, they will need a full weekend of play like they had last night, not just a period or a game.
It's going to be either Notre Dame or Western and I'm not sure which one I'd rather see Michigan play. On the one hand Western doesn't score a lot, but Slubowski is good and he is even better at Lawson so that could be a tough series to get through. Notre Dame pretty much dismantled Michigan just a month ago when the Wolverines traveled down to South Bend, but going back the scene of that nasty weekend could be just the motivator Michigan needs. To add to it Michigan did score goals down there, they just gave up a lot more than they scored, so going to South Bend with a stouter defense could lead to a different outcome.
This looks more like one of this six of one, half a dozen of the other type choices and there are places I would really rather Michigan not have to go, so no matter where they end up next weekend I'll just be looking for a solid weekend of hockey and hopefully they will find a way to Joe Louis.
