Michigan icers wa
By MARTHA CRALL
A 1-6-1 record may not impress too
many people, but Michigan Hockey
*oach John Giordano doesn't expect the
Ohio State Buckeyes, which sport that
league record, to be a pushover.
'I think they are going to come in
here fired up," Giordano.said. "I think
there will be a lot of hitting because
both of us are physical teams."
.THE BUCKS visit Yost Arena for a
two-game Central Collegiate Hockey
Association (CCHA) series starting
Sonight and concluding with the finale
morrow night. Starting time for both
games is 7:30 p.m.
Michigan was idle last weekend,
while the down-but-not-out Buckeyes
whipped Wilfrid Laurier of Waterloo,
Oft. twice, 6-4 and 11-2. Although Ohio
State (5-6-1 overall) hasn't proven to be
an offensive powerhouse in the CCHA
this season, the Buckeye icers rifled 90
and 95 shots in each of the two games
against the Golden Hawks.
- 'I think (last weekend) gives us a bit
of a push," said Ohio State coach Jerry
Welsh. "It's not the same as beating a
(Michigan) Tech by those scores, but it
helped us break out of a slump."
GIORDANO, on the other hand, felt
that Michigan's weekend off worked in
captain Paul Brandrup, who had minor
surgery .on his knee. Senior defen-
seman Brian Lundberg, who hurt his
knee three weeks ago, will dress but
play sparingly, according to Giordano.
'We didn't really prepare specifically for Michigan. We
don't know enough about them . . . Hopefully we will
have enough intensity to dominate and force Michigan to
make adjustments to us.'

in the CCHA. Marson is also the only
icer among the top 30 scorers in the
league without a single penalty in 1981-
Behind Marson in scoring is
sophomore Paul Pooley witR 14 points.
Steve Amoruse, Andy Browne and
defenseman Dan Mandich follow with
13 points apiece. Mandich was
unanimous all-CCHA defenseman last
season and leads the team in penalties
with 24 for 48 minutes. Browne has
been the Buckeyes' hottest forward
with 11 of his 13 points coming in the
last four games.
"We didn't really prepare
specifically for Michigan," said Welsh.
"We don't know enough about them.
We will just play our best game.
Hopefully, we will have enough inten-
sity to dominate and force Michigan to
make adjustments to us."
IN THE NETS, both teams have been
rotating goalies. Ohio State will start
sophomore John Damrath, who has
started seven games for the Buckeyes
and sports a 3.69 goals-against average
and ranks ninth overall among the
league's goalies. He has split time with
freshman John Dougan, who has star-
ted five games and has a 4.76 gaa.
As usual, Giordano has left his star-
ting goalie for tonight's .game a
question mark,but freshman Jon Elliott
has seen the most action of the
Wolverine netminders, playing in seven
games. Elliott has a 2.37 gaa and a .917
save percentage while sharing the
goaltending duties with senior Peter
Mason. Mason has seen action in four
games and holds a stingy 1.30 gaa.
Michigan sophomore Steve
Yoxheimer may have pinpointed the
key to this series when he said,"There
is no weak team in this league.
Anybody can beat anybody else on a
given night. Ohio State is better than its
