I caught parts of each game this weekend and wasn't impressed with the effort either.
There were stretches of domination in their zone, but couldn't get any past their goalie. Friday night they had over 50 shots and lost in the SO, and the Saturday it appeared they were trying to snipe the corners and missed the net more times than not. After a few weeks of great effort and play they have fallen back and not played well in the last two weeks. They will need to pick it up again if they are to make any noise at all in the B10 tourney and advance any further. I'd like to see them make the NCAA tourney just for the experience for the future, but at this point, I don't see that as very likely.
Hated how they went back to …. hold puck, hold puck, hold puck … fake out all defenders, and goalie …. and then be at a terrible angle and get nothing done.
Its a sign of talent, but it can drive you crazy.
Yup, we reverted back to the "one-man show" efforts instead of shooting and crashing the net for rebounds.
Ranta really has regressed with his keep the puck till I lose it mentality.....
It's like they forgot the earlier success they had was as a team, not as individuals.
