5FW Live Coverage: 2012 Frozen Apple

5-1, Final. Will have some photos and impressions from seeing both teams live later on…

9:35 PM — 3-0 Cornell after two. Michigan has had some extended time in the offensive zone, but hasn’t done much with it. Trouba continues to impress, while I’ve barely noticed the Wolverines’ Boo Nieves, who was drafted by the Rangers in the second round last year.

Andy Iles was tested for the first time in the second and made some nice saves, all while wearing a special camo jersey that will only be worn for that period and will be auctioned off to benefit Wounded Warriors.

8:50 PM — 1-0 Cornell after one…Jacob Trouba of Michigan probably the best player on the ice for either team, though. There’s a lot to like about that kid, you can see why Winnipeg took him 9th overall last year.

Joel Lowry had the goal for the Big Red, and…well, Steve Racine hasn’t been too impressive to me through 20. Shaky when handling the puck, and the goal never left the ice, just beat him clean through the legs. Clean shooting lane, but that can’t happen.

7:00 PM — Welcome to The Trentonian’s 5 For Writing’s coverage of the 2012 Frozen Apple game between Cornell and Michigan at Madison Square Garden. I’m going to try to update this as often as I can through the night — the game starts at 8 — and should have some stuff post-game as well.
