No. 13 Michigan's men's hockey came to Columbus, and just like the North Carolina men's tennis team, they left Columbus with an L hanging around their necks.

The Puckeyes dueled the Ice Wolverines to a 2-2 tie at the end of regulation, but Alex Sczechura (who scored in regulation) netted the only point in the shootout and secured the win for the good guys.

Goalie Matt Tomkins notched a massive 35 saves in the victory.

Highlights? Highlights:

How big was the shootout point?

The teams will close their regular series blood feud with Michigan at 1 p.m. on Sunday at Nationwide Arena in downtown Columbus. BuckID gets you in free, otherwise, hit Ticketmaster.

Excellent game Puckeyes!!!  The shootout was a blast to watch!!!

The best thing about Pastafarianism? It is not only acceptable, but advisable, to be heavily sauced

After the tailspin those canuckian bastards sent team Merica down I never thought I could be hockey happy again.  I was wrong.  Go Bucks.  Great job, Boys.

It's frickin' awesome when OSU can beat TTUN at their own game. They think they're part Candian, and own the game of hockey in the States. F*&k Michelin!

Three would be better, but two is good.

Game on Sunday is 1pm at Nationwide Arena. Let's make it a good environment for the Puckeyes.

Last night's game was in The Whore, making the shootout victory that much sweeter.

Real fans stay for Carmen.

Looks like the boys brought us home a sweet victory last night. Beating TTUN on their own ice - is there anything sweeter in the winter months?

Not to nitpick but the game was at Yost Arena in Ann Arbor.  It was on BTN last night and was very exciting especially since their fans were jacked up after the Wolverines came from behind to tie it up and force overtime. Then the Buckeyes gave them the shoot out dagger.

 

Sorry just realized somebody already mentioned it was a road game at AA.

Sidenote to watch later

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