Recapping the Action
On Friday, the icers jumped off
to a 3-0 lead, and held it through
the first 51 minutes, before the
spell was broken at 11:29 of the
third period, and Colorado clos'd
the gap to 3-2 at the 16 minute
After Herman turned aside sev-
eral potential tying shots, Brucet
Koviak took a pass in his own zones
and broke in alone on the Tigerst
goalie Bill Howard. Even %h ughr
he was tripped from behind, and
a delayed penalty was being sig-
naled, Koviak slid the puck under
Howard to ice the game.
Colorado took their on'y :ead of
the series at 3:59 of the 'r-t per-
iod on Saturday, as CC's Bub
Lindberg beat Herman.
The lead stood up for eight min-
utes. before Bob Ferguson ram-
med home a rebound (with Colo-.
rado having a man advantage) to
tie the score.
Six minutes later, Michigan
took the lead on Ullyot's first goal
and ran away with it, building up
a 6-1 lead before the Tigers could
beat Herman again.
The Wolverines' home fans
were treated to one of the most
awesome short term puwer dis-
plays in many games at the Coii-
seum, as the icers tallied three
times in 65 seconds, and wou:d
have made it four in 85 seconds,
if the shot hadn't gone a litGle
With the score 7-3, and the
Tigers coming back with two
straight tallies, Wakabayashi pick-
ed up the puck next to his own
net, raced the length of the ice,
beat two defensemen and the
goalie, and eased a soft shot into
the wide open net. Herman, who
had dropped the puck for Mel
after a save, picked up that hockey
rarity, a goalie assist, on the play.
No Rest for 'M'
N,)w the Wolverines, with five
straight WCHA wins, five out of
six in league play, and six wins
in their last seven games, move
into Grand Forks, N.D., for a ser-

the Wolverines can come up with
another sweep, the race could
turn into a two-team Michigan-
