"Ho, hum, we're glad that's out
of the way, now we can get ready
for the important games."
Such is the reaction of the
Micligan icers as they slumped to
a fourth place finish in WCHA
regular season competition, the
result of a disappointing weekend
with last place Minnesota. By ty-
Ing one game and losing the
other to the Gophers, the Wol-
verines dropped from a second to

If the icers had won the game
that they lost, they would have
placed second, or if they had won
the game they tied, the Wolverines
would have at least finished third.
Mike Marttlla, the icers captain,
explained the reason for the team's
lackadasical showing, "After we
lost to North Dakota and knew we
couldn't win the championship, it
really didn't matter where we end-

centrating on the NCAA tourna-
The NCAA competition is what
the team means by the important
games. With the regular season
over, the Wolverines go into the
WCHA playoffs looking for a berth
in the NCAA tournament to be
held in Syracuse, March 16-17-18.
In the WCHA playoffs, two con-
ference teams eventually make it
to the NCAA tournament. To de-
cide the teams, the eight school
league is divided into half to de-
termine the two representatives.

be occupied by the victor of the

North Dakota is a fast skating
