Check, check, DAMNIT

1) Michigan beat Iowa in overtime despite playing without Mike Hart and without LaMarr Woodley who were both out with injuries. And it's not like the rest of the team is exactly healthy. But we did get to see a little of Jake Long back. That kid is an amazing talent and if he can keep getting healthier it could really help down the stretch. Not sure how we won, but we did. Kudos to the defense for really stepping up after Iowa had 2 beautiful TD drives early in the game.

2) The Red Wings smoked the Blue Jackets 6-0 tonight and Jason Williams had the first period hat trick to lead the way. 2nd shutout of the year for Legace. Did you know that Detroit is now 8-1 on the season with 36 goals scored and only 17 allowed. Not a bad ratio. The only team in the league with a ratio anywhere near Detroit is Ottawa who is 6-0 with 25 goals scored and only 11 allowed. But that's in 3 fewer games so I'm not quite as impressed. Nashville is somehow 7-0 with 25 goals scored and 16 allowed. Can you say lucky to have 6 one goal victories including 2 in OT.

3) Last but not least is the 3-3 tie at Yost between Michigan and Michigan State. For once, MSU really took the play to us but our goalie snuck out a tie. I'm really getting sick of tying these guys as 4 straight games have gone to OT and 3 have ended in ties. Plus any time we don't get a W at Yost, it hurts. You can read some good recaps of the game here and here.

Oh well, 2.5 outta 3 ain't bad.
