WCHA hockey is a "homer's"
sport. That is, the home team
has a decided advantage. The
Michigan hockey team would do
well to remember that fact this
weekend as they travel to Den-
ver for a two game series with
the Denver Pioneers.s
"Hockey may well be the
sport with the greatest home
advantage," noted Denver coach
Murray Armstrong. "The tex-
ture of the ice, the curvature
of the boards, how the puck
bounces-knowing these things
is a big plus."
MICHIGAN coach Dan Farrell
agrees. He cites last year's
Denver games as an example.
"we lost two games out there
last year. They were both good1
games (5-4 and 5-3) and the
home advantage may well have
been the difference."
So, Denver may be a tough
place to win. But there are
other reasons besides the fact
that it represents enemy ice.
Denver has some quality play-
ers. The Pioneers are very
young (only two seniors will be
suiting up for this weekend)
but -still well disciplined. And
they have a winning tradition.
Indeed, Coach Armstrong, who
is in his twentieth year as Pio-
neet head coach, has only had
two losing seasons in his stay
at Denver. One of them was last
year, when his team only man-
aged 12 victories against 23
Armstrong's record at Denver
is nothing short of amazing. His
teams have won over two-thirds

of their games, averaging 25
victories per campaign. On top
of this, his Pioneers have cap-
tured seven league and five na-
tional titles.
THIS YEAR'S squad opened
their league season by dropping
a pair to Minnesota Duluth, but
bounced back to gain splits with
Michigan Tech, Minnesota and
Notre Dame. Their league rec-
ord now stands at 3-5.
The Pioneers return their top
seven scorers from last year.
Mark Falcone, a sophmore who
leads the team in scoring this
year, will center on the first
line for senior captain Ched
Miller (the pride of Melville,
Saskatchewan) and junior Tom
