WILL THE REAL Michigan hockey team please stand up? f
It has been a season of ironies this year for the Dan Far-
rell-coached pucksters. One game they are brilliant and playing
like national champions. The next they are just getting by
North Dakota or losing a heart breaker to Notre Dame.
This past weekend was another one of those motifs, the
recurring theme that has frustrated the Michigan hockey fan
In the Friday night game the Wolverines had a 3-1 lead, only
to lose it and drop a heartbreaker in overtime to the Fighting
On Saturday night Michigan was spectacular, blowing the
Irish out with seven second period goals and going on to win 10-3.
What is the reason for this? Early in the season Coach Dan
Farrell stated, "If I knew what to do to change it, I would do
it. It's not that we are playing that badly."
And that is the truth. The Wolverines have played poorly in
only a few of the games they have lost.
Loss of Moretto hurts
Friday's loss was a tough one. It's not that the Wolverines
played that badly. Actually there was very little difference in
the quality of play on the two nights. The defense was probably
a little better on Saturday and Michigan was getting more good
breaks. Other than that the play was quite similar to Friday-
good, solid hockey.

The Wolverines were also hurt last weekend
of All-American center Angie Moretto. This will
be a major factor as the season montinues.
by the loss
Obviously if you take away any teams leading scorer it will be
affected. Just to what extent the Michigan hockey team will be;
affected will remain to be seen.
Moretto's presence on the ice meant more than high scoring.
The Maize and Blue now do not have a center that is big enough
to stand in the slot and direct shots.
But this does not mean that Michigan should not score goals.
Witness Saturday night. Dave DeBol scored a hat trick. And;
goals came from other unlikely places-two each from Bill
Thayer and freshman Mark Miller.
This will be one of the key question marks the rest of the
way. Will .they score without Moretto? On paper the answer is
yes. DeBol is a flashy, speedy center, ala Gil Perrault, who will
undoubtedly score. -Forward Kris Manery is coming into his
own now as one of the top shooters in the WCHA. Doug and
Tom Lindskog can also score.
'The goaltending will continue to be strong. Robbie Moore
looked great both games against Notre Dame, often stop-
ing one-on-one chances.
Other Wolverine standouts include Ben Kawa and Greg
Natale. Since Kawa has been playing forward he has been
hustling all over the ice. Ben has been especially superb in kill-
ing off penalties and frustrating rival forwards. Greg NataleR
has been a bright spot on a Michigan defense that has been hot I
and cold at times.
Strong, balanced WCHA1
What about thy rest of the WCHA? The league is much strong-
er and more balanced than in the past. That was no poor
Notre Dame team that Michigan played last weekend. Their play-
ers are as good as many in the league. Even lowly Denver
bumped off Michigan State in East Lansing two weekends ago.
The entire league is stronger and no team has gone out and
run away from the rest. Only Michigan Tech has been con-
sistent the last few weeks. But the Wolverines have a tradition
of knocking off the Huskies and in fact have beaten them two
out of three this year.l
The next few weeks will tell the story of the Wolverines sea-
son. Can they play over the loss of top scorer Moretto? Can.
.hey make things happen for themselves instead of waiting for
things to happen? Only then will the bright promise of the pre-
season be fulfilled or turn to the dust of mediocrity.
ILLINOIS CENTER Mike Washington (54) applies a knee
into the back of Ohio St. guard Larry Bolden, who looks like
he is being robbed. Washington's efforts were not enough,
however, as the Buckeyes scored with nine seconds to go to
take a 64-63 decision from the Fighting Illini.
