Tech
By JOE O'NEILL
It seems like Michigan's hockey
team came to Boston one cday too
early to play in the Boston Arena
Annual Christmas Hockey Tour-
nament; last December 27, 28, and
29.
After splitting with Denver1 five
days earlier, Michigan was bomb-
ed by Boston University in the
opener 7-2, then they played their
finest game of the series, losing
to Michigan Tech, 7-6. In the con-
solation game for third place they
finally got on the winning side
as they skated circles around
Northeastern by a 6-2 score.
Never Close
In the B.U. game, the Wolver-
ines never were close to the Ter-
riers, as B.U. jumped off to a
quick 3-0 lead in the first period.

7akes
In this period, Michigan had
five shots on B.U.'s goalie
Ferreira.
If it hadn't been for Hers
Michigan might have been of
the Michigan Tech contest
before the final period.nThe
ond game of the tourney age
Tech was undoubtedly Michi
finest game of the series. Her
came up with 36 valuable save
compared to 28 for Tech's
America goalie Tony Esposito
The number of shots takes
both clubs is one indicatio
the wide open hockey playe
this game. Both clubs receiv
standing ovation from the Bc
audience for their fine exhib
of hockey. Michigan scored .
and then Tech caught up,
that was the pattern of the g

Title;
only except for one extra goal
Jack got in the second frame.

Tech

Michigan was trailing by one
with three and a half minutes to
go in the game when Dean Lucier
had a clear shot' on Tech's goal.
Esposito saved off his pads, but
Michigan kept up the fight until
the final buzzer with several other
close plays that could have given
them the game.
In the first period, Tech came
from behind twice to tie. Michi-
gan goals by Bill Lord and Bob
Baird were offset by Ricky Yeo
and Ed Caterer. Baird's was one
of four that this talented junior
collected in this game. It was a
perfect pass from Captain Mel
Wakabayashi, who drew Esposito
to the side of the net and then

passed to Baird, who was alone
in front of the crease.
In the second period, Tech got
their extra goal and led 5-4 at
the end of the period. Baird got
two more this period, both on
2-on-i situations. Both times he
received fine centering passes
from Wakabayashi.
Helpful Infractions
The second period was also
marked by some helpful Tech
penalties. Both times when Tech
had men sent to the "sin bin,"
as it's called in Boston, Michigan
took advantage of the extra man
and scored.
Michigan tied it up in the third
period on a goal by Dan Walter,
assisted by defenseman Dean
Lucier. The tie was short-lived,
however, as the aroused Huskies
fought back and went ahead for
good 20 seconds later.
In the Northeastern game, it
was again Baird and Wakabayashi
who provided the spark for Mich-
igan. Northeastern wasn't a strong
team, but they had performed well
against Tech and B.U. in the
preceeding days. Baird scored two
goals and an assist. Wakabayashi,
playing with a badly bruised foot
which was heavily taped, picked
up three more assists.
Northeastern played well in the

LOSE 6-2, WIN 5-2:
'1WI' Splits First, WCHA Series

Third
The win was Michigan's only
victory, and left the defending
champs with third place in thei
tourney.
Michigan Tech and B.U. were
battling it out for the champion-
ship on the night that Michigan
played Northeastern. B.U. scored
twice in the first period, Tech
once. The score stood that way
until 10:16 of the final period,
when Tech erupted for a four
goal outburst to take the game
and the championship from B.U.
B.U. is undoubtedly the best
team in the East, and this could
have been a preview of the upcom-
ing NCAA finals in late March.
B.U. and Tech dominated the all-
tournament team, B.U. placing
seven out of twelve, and Tech
putting 3 on the team; Michigan
Tech's Tony Esposito was voted
the game's most valuable player.
Michigan's captain Mel Wakaba-
yashi was placed on the all-
tourney team, and Northeastern's
Jimmy Leu rounded out the selec-
tions.
Sophomore Harold Herman
seems to be a strong choice for
the starting goalie position. Greg
Page had been alternating with
Herman before this series, but he
took sick on the way back from
the Denver games. He was in
health service for a while, but
appears to be all right now.
The lines are still a little weak
in their passing, although when
they do have good chances to
score they take advantage of
them. Mel Wakabayashi and Bob
Baird have been teaming up to
light the lamp for Michigan for
many important goals. Koviak's
Detroit line has been skating well,
but several times Tech and B.U.
skated right past Michigan in the
tourney.
Looking forward to the upcom-
ing WCHA action, the team will
be in pretty -good shape physically.
Page is back, and Wakabayashi's
foot is healing. He suffered a
pulled groin muscle, but it does
not appear to be too serious.

By JIM TINDALL
Splitting a two game hockey;
series may be like kissing your
sister, but Michigan's icers are
having considerable trouble getting.
out of this domestic rut.
The Wolverines opened their
WCHA season over the holidays in
Denver and the icemen dropped
their first game 6-2, but bounced
back to cop the rematch 5-2. The
split was the third in four two-
game series this season. but this
last one may be more encourag-
ing as the team came back to win
the second game instead of folding
in the second game after winning,
the first easily.7
Season Mark
The split gives Michigan a 6-51
record overall with a 1-1 stand-
ard in WCHA play.
Coach Al Renfrew explained
that the team had two "off
nights" in their five-game holi-i
day activity and that the first of
those was in the initial game with'
Denver. He added that ""This is
perhaps to be expected because~
of the number of young players
on the team."
Opening their WCHA season in
the Denver Arena is comparable toa
the basketball team playing their1
first game in St. John's arena, and
up until lately Denver's home rec-'
ord was like that of the LSU
football team. In the Tuesday
night encounter the young icers
were faced with a large, opposing
crowd for the ffirst time this sea-
son. On two weekday nights Den-
ver's arena -resounded with the
screaming crowds numbering 3,-
779 and,3,895 (a far cry from the
scattering of fans who have wit-
nessed the non-conference en-;
counters at the Coliseum thus far,
this year).
Renfrew Pleased
Renfrew said on Monday that
he was pleased with the way that
the team had performed against
Denver, especially soph . goalie
Harold Herman who started both
games at Denver and all three at
the Boston area tourney five days
later. Greg Page, last year's start-
er, was ill and didn't make the
Boston trip.
In the first game Michigan
scored first as Mike Martilla beat
veteran goalie Buddy Blom at
13:45 of the first period. The as-
sist was credited to his brother

Lea. The Brothers Martilla, Inc.
came up against their counterparts
in Denver in the Wiste Boys who
were instrumental in engineering a
Michigan defeat in the first game.
Bounce Back
The Pioneers came right back
with a goal only 39 seconds later
(the Wiste Bros. each getting an
assist) and another shortly before
the period closed.
The first period was scarred
with five penalties which when
added to the eight infractions of
the second and third period equal
a traditionally rough game. Tom
Shiller appears to have been the
Michigan "bad boy" as he was sent
out to cool his skates and his
temper on three separate occa-
sions (and added a fourth penalty
on Wednesday).
Denver got the first goal of the
second period from J. Wiste and
that proved to be the margin that
put the game out of reach for the
Wolverines.
Down by Two
Michigan managed to get back
to a two goal. deficit on Barry
MacDonald's goal at 13:16 of the
period, but after that Michigan
pressed in an effort to get back
in the game and gave up two more
goals in the third period.
Two of the Pioneers' goals were
scored while Michigan was short-
handed and Coach Renfrew com-
mented, "The team did not take
advantage of the chances we had
to score."
On Saturday night it was a dif-
ferent team. A team that skated
and shot well and was never be-
hind. Playing before another large
crowd Bruce Koviak scored the
only goal of the first period as he
tallied at 6:23. Wakabayashi and

MacDonald picked up assists on
the tally.
Cleaner Game
In what was generally a cleaner
game Bill Lord picked up the first
of his hat trick of penalties of
the evening in the first period.
Schiller upped the margin to
2-0 at 2:33 of the second stanza
when he beat Blom with an assist
from Bob Baird. J. Wiste came
back to score for the Pioneers a
few minutes later, but Bob Fer-
guson netted the winning tally at
14:22 on assists from Wakabaya-
shi and MacDonald. The Pioneers
were game however and they
fought back four minutes later to
score as the second period closed
with Michigan holding a slim 3-2
lead.,
Mike Martilla TKO'ed the Den-
ver icers with his first of two
third period goals at 3:39 with
Baird getting another assist. Mar-
tilla also picked a cripple in the
last stanza as he popped the puck
into an open net at 18:42.
Seem Ready
The Wolverines seemed ready
to play in Boston on the basis of
their Wednesday evening victory,
but they dropped their first game
with Boston. Thus the problem of
trying to develop consistency came
back to haunt Coach Renfrew. His
can go from hot to cold or vice
versa in 24 hours, but it will take
more than a .500 mark to win the
WCHA this year so Renfrew hopes
to find out what his team needs
to put two games together and
pick up a couple of series sweeps.
The icers are now into the
WCHA schedule and will play no
further non-conference games.
Michigan meets Minnesota in Min-
neapolis for a two game series this
weekend.
