History, as symbolized by an
unpredictable hockey puck, has a
chance to pull off another of its
familiar repeating acts this week-
end, when the pace-setting Mich-
igan icers travel northward to the
den of the Michigan Tech Huskies.
One year ago, the high-flying
WCHA leaders from Tech swept
into Ann Arbor for a similar two-
game set, only to be sent home
to nurse injuries suffered in a
double defeat as the hands of the
third-place Wolverines, 3-2 and
This time the teams' positions
are reversed, but the situation is
the same. Michigan currently tops
the conference with a 7-1 record
and Tech is holding down third
at 6-4-1. Once again, the first-
place outfit will sit on the visitors'
Front vs. Back
The games will match the
league's hottest offense with the
stingiest defense. Michigan's well-
balanced scoring attack, spear-
headed by Bob Baird's 38 points,
will crash head-on into the
staunch goaltending duo of two-
time All-America Tony Esposito
and sidekick Rick Best.
'This is a 'must' series for us,"
states Tech coach John MacInnes.
"We have to win both games to get
back into the league race . .
otherwise we'll be completely out
Maclnnes is wary of the Wolver-
ine offense, which so far is aver-
aging 6.5 goals per game. "Michi-
gan has so many good scorers, it's
hard to stop them. You can't give
them a chance or-boom! boom!-
they'll have the puck in the net.
"There is no problem with a
team that has only two or three
scoring threats; they can be
stopped. But each of our lines will
have to do a consistently good job
against Michigan. We learned our
lesson in Detroit during the Great
Lakes Tournament, when during a
double-penalty, the Wolverines
scored twice before we knew what
The home ice could be a factor
in Tech's attempt to avenge last
year's losses and the 4-3 defeat in
Detroit earlier this season. The
Huskies have lost only one home
game all year and have a 5-0
WOHA record in their arena. On
the other hand, Michigan has yet
to be beaten on the road.
Both teams will switch goalies
during two game series-the Wol-
veines rotating Jim Keough and
Harold Herman, and the Huskies
using Esposito and Best.
Maclnnes agrees with Michigan
coach Al Renfrew on the ad-
vantage of rotating netminders
with contrasting styles: "the other
Mike Gorman, and three sur-
prising sophomores comprising the
blue-line corps. Two of the rookies,
Pete Grant and Edgar Rivalin,
will play in the Michigan series,
while the third, Dick Sieradzki,
is sitting out a knee injury.
One of Tech's lines is entirely
manned by sophomores, featuring
Jim Kryway and Al Karlander on
the wings, and John Haines at
center. Haines is the third-highest
scorer on the team, with eight
goals to date.
Tech's top scorer, senior Bob
Toothill, centers the starting line,
which has senior Colin Patterson
and sophomore Bob Marshall as
wingmen. Toothill has racked up
11 goals and 11 assists for 22 total
points, 17 of which have come in
The third line has veterans Bob
Wilson and Wayne Weller flanking
cetnerman Gary Milroy. Weller,
top Huskie scorer over the past two
years, is suffering through a pro-
longer slump during which he has
only six goals in 17 games.
MacInnes considers the "so-so
performance" of the seniors as the
team's "biggest problem. The boys
we've counted on to carry the of-
fense just haven't come through.
Our lack of a consistent scoring
punch has hurt us repeatedly."
(Six of Tech's seven losses have
been by a gone goal margin.)
Another factor in the Huskies'
mediocre showing so far, after two
straight WCHA championships,
has been the 'soft goal.' "We've
been plagued by the disputed
goals, the lucky goals, and the
'mistake' goals this season," wails
MacInnes. "There has been at
least one in every game so far."
The Tech mentor believes that'
team spirit, along with exceptional
skating and checking abilities, is
the basis of the Wolverine win-
ning streak. "When we played
them in Detroit, I was particularly
impressed with Michigan's fore-
checking and hustle; they were
able to hold us in our own end of
the ice for most of the game. They
have great desire and that great
hustle-the necessary prerequisites
for a winning team."
The Wolverines arrived in
Houghton last night to prepare
for tonight's opener of thetwo-
game stand. The stage is set for
history to repeat itself-for the
underdog to knock off the front-
runner before a home crowd.
But maybe history will blow it
