Wow nothing’s working. So at the Camp Randall Classic Michigan struggled a bit in the first period, but seemed to dominate action in the second and for the majority of the third period. I thought the first call on Summers that led to the Badgers’ equalizer was garbage. The game winning shot was as gorgeous as it was devastating.
I keep looking for a sign that things are changing–for any of these teams. We saw a glimmer after the UConn win with hoops, and the January run of the hockey team made a playoff bid conceivable. After the beautiful Lynch goal that put the Blue up 2-1 in Madison, and with the way the guys were controlling the puck and dominating the pace, I thought that this might be it. Gut punch.
Play with the intensity exhibited in that game and they’ve got a shot to get in the playoffs via the regular season or by winning the tournament. But it’s a long shot starting with the rare Tuesday game this week. I’ll be up at Yost to take a look.
