Turned the game on with one second to go in the game - needless to say I missed the goal in the last second. They showed the replay a couple of times during the shootout and the MSU fans looked pissed. So glad we stole the game in the shootout. Nice five hole to wrap up the game. 

Coach knew we had this game the entire time

Great win Bucks!!!

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

Scrumptious. Way to set the tone in East Lansing for 2014.

I remember once going to an OSU hockey game vs TTUN, and TTUN scored with 1 second to go to tie it.  This was years ago, before there were shootouts, so the game ended up a tie.  So to see the Buckeyes do it, albeit to Sparty and not TTUN, and then win the shootout, is awesome.

I casually follow the hockey team.  Anyone know what our chances of making the tourny are?  Also how does it work etc?

Right now we are outside the bubble.  The key ranking to look at is the PairWise ranking.  The tournament selection committee has their own formula that they don't release mid-season, but the PairWise is designed to mimic it (and it is damn good at doing so).  We sit at a tie for 24 (NCAA tourney is 16 teams).  Letting the games against Miami early get away from us is really hurting (as they suck now) and that 1-0 loss to Minny stings as a missed opportunity.  Fortunately we get both Minnesota and Wisconsin at home which will be big opportunities.  Our end of the season schedule is primed for a run with 5 of the final 9 games at home (or at Nationwide).  Only roadtrip weekend is to PSU who is the "worst" team in the league.  Plus the B1G tournament in St. Paul (which I will be attending and am SUPER excited for).

So the team has a lot of work to do, but it's not at all impossible.

The Big Ten conference tournament winner gets an autobid. link I think that's our best avenue at this point.

It's a single elimination tournament. So win 3 and we're in. I'm pretty confident that this team has the ability to get hot and upset the field come March 20-22.

Here's a USCHO FAQ on the selection process BTW.

Nice quick work by Schilkey behind the net to get the puck out front, just in the nick of time. This is a fun team to watch, win or lose.
