The vaunted Czechoslovakian
National Championship t e a m
had to come from behind with
three goals in the final period to
overcome a superb Michigan ef-
fort and topple the Wolverines
5-3 last night.
After two periods of play,
Michigan had a one point ad-
vantage, 3-2, and looked like
they were ready to take on the
Detroit Red Wings before the
Czech defense stiffened in the
final stanza and their offense
put the victory on ice.
The Czechs tied the score in
the third period on a power play
as Vaclav Sykora slipped the
puck into the right side of the
net past' Robbie Moore and a

helpless Tom Lindskog who had
lost his stick.
Three and a half minutes la-
ter, Moore fought off a fierce
onslaught and had made what
appeared a great save, only to
watch the puck come off his
body and dribble slowly into the
net, for the go ahead goal.
Milan Novy hit an empty net
with five seconds left after
Moore had come off the ice to
give the Wolverines an extra
offensive player, making the fi-
nal tally 5-3. Novy turned in a
hat trick with one goal in each
period, and was named the first
star of the game.
Novy opened the scoring in
the first period with a slap shot
from 15 feet as the puck was


cleared from in front of the net hind the goal, and Kip pushed:
