Wisconsin beats OSU today in the BT tourney.
PSU/Minny tied after 2
Ohio State beat MSU, lost to Wisconsin.Q lostAF won (need to beat Robert Morris tomorrow)BC is winning 3-0 (need to lose to UMass Lowell tomorrow)
Or we could just win tonight (tied 3-3 late as I type this).
Headed to OT. Yikes.
BC won 3-2, PSU heading to second OT. Double yikes.
PSU wins 4-3! On to the final vs. Wisconsin tomorrow!
Good thing they don't have to win tomorrow to make the NCAA tournament (I don't think they do). Wisconsin only played today. PSU has played more than 2.5 games in the last 28 hours or so. Rest up guys. You can still win tomorrow.
After the game the one announcer on the BTN said that PSU now has a 98% chance of getting an invite to the NCAA tourney.
This says we are a lock in 100% of remaining scenarios.
That will be fun.
The NCAA ice hockey selection show will be aired on espnu tomorrow at 12 pm.
I've never paid attention to the B1G tourney before, but, is attendance always that bad? Seemed like outside of the two pep bands, there weren't more than a few hundred people there.
Was it just me or did the ice at the "Joe" seem awful? the puck was bouncing all over the place. I saw more "whiffs" than i can recall watching a hockey game.
The only time attendance has been ok has been when the tournament has been held in Minn/St Paul and Minnesota has been playing in the game. Otherwise its been crap - particularly for the non-championship games. That's why they are moving it to the on campus arenas and going with the more traditional format. Getting all the teams together at one site for the weekend was an experiment - and a disastrous one.
It looked horrible to me also.
It is on its last legs. They probably aren't putting any money into the equipment since the arena will be demolished soon.
Penn State leads 1-0 early in the 3rd. Remember when Ohio State threw a broom on the ice at Pegula? Well, they need us to beat Wisconsin to make the NCAA. I almost want us to lose to screw them. Almost. I want a trophy more.
1-1, heading to OT. This team has played a lot of hockey this weekend.
