Hgot',i cold-
' with the Wolverine Icers
IF YOU WOULD have asked "For whom the bell tolls," last
Friday night, you would have had to answer the Wolverine hockey
In what can be fairly described as the most unbelievable com-
bination of stupid plays and ineptness ever thrown onto the ice and
still called a game, the icers got stomped by Minnesota by a 6-3
But if you asked the same question Saturday at about 11 P.M.,
the inescapable conclusion would be that the Wolverines were doing
all of the tolling. The NHL all-stars would have thought twice
(though admittedly not much longer) before skating against Mich-
igan. The home town heroes were unbelievably good as they -drove
the Gophers underground with a five goal; attack and a defense
that didn't give up a score.
THE STENCHl FROM the Colesium drove fans homeward bound
as much as five minutes early in the Friday night contest. The
'Gophers put up a good defensive show, but their attack was built
around Wolverine mistakes and lazy play.
a Cut to the third period Friday. Michigan is behind, 4-3, and
on the power play. The Gophers get the puck and Scott Buchan
wants to clear it down the ice.
Michigan forward Doug Galbraith goes after Buhan, Buchan
flicks his wrists and the puck goes over the Wolverine's outstretched
stick. Buchan cuts around. There are now no Michigan men between
him and a score except goalie Jim Keough.
Buchan comes down the ice to Keough's right. Teammate Dave
Roddy joins him and skates up the middle. Two Gophers to one
Buchan closes in on the net. He fakes Keough and cuts to the
left. Keough makes a fantastic sliding save. But he is unable to con-
trol the rebound and Roddy picks up an easy goal with a shot into
the now open right side.
Minnesota Coach Glen Sonmor accurately depicted the Wolverine
style of play. "When you play as offensively as they do, you're bound
to take some chances." Custer took a better chance at the Little Big
After the breakaway, the Wolverine play dropped to a margin
of laziness. A jury of little old ladies would 'have hung them for
their sluggish play.
Cut to Gopher Bill Klatt behind the Michigan net about five
minutes after Roddy's score.
He is moving back and forth behind the Wolverine goal un-
hindered, looking for a friendly brown jersey to pass to in front
of the net.
Keough is moving very sluggishly in his efforts to keep on the
same side as Klatt. The entire Michigan contingent seems to be
moving in slow motion.
Finally Klatt sees his opening and flicks the puck to Pete
Fiehuck who rams home 'one of the' easiest goals any hockey player
in any league ever got.
Michigan had plenty of trouble, bringing the puck out of their
own end. Instead of heading the puck (passing to the man farthest
up the ice), the players tried to bring it out alone. Only when the lone
wolf got into trouble did he pass. And all to many times the
pass went to a non-existant wing or to the other ,team.
THEN CAME SATURDAY NIGHT. If the Wolverines were ter-
rible Friday, they were terrifying Saturday. They came out skating
and hitting as they hadn't for the entire season. They would have
blown the Gophers off the ice if the Minnesotans hadn't had what can
only be described as luck on their side.
Murray MeLacklan, the Gopher goaltender, was mx places he.
had no business being, but was able to make thesaves.
r "We shot several times and that guy didn't even move" said
Wolverine defenseman Lars Hansen. The puck would hit a skate or a
post or by accident McLacklan would move in front of the shot.
"He was lucky," said Hansen, but then he added, "that's part
of the game, too."
But the Gopher luck ended in a two minute and ten second
span of the second period. Michigan scored four goals.
Hansen started the scoring with his first tally of the ?campaign
and Barney Pashak, Merle Falk and Doug Glendinning followed soon
No team in college hockey could have beaten Michigan Satur-
day night. Friday, they couldnt' have played with any other collegiate
squad. Seemingly, the Wolverine's have the potential to perform at
last Saturday's competence in every outing. Whether they will live
up to this potential is in their hands.
If they do, they could win the national championship.
