'M' playoff picture settled

The Michigan Daily-Tuesday, March 3, 1981-Page 13

By TOM SHAHEEN
Another Michigan team is heading
vest.
Coach John Giordano's icers begin
playoff action this weekend-not in
sumy Pasadena, but in the serene set-
tih$ of the Rocky Mountains-against

the Denver Pioneers.
THIS WILL BE the second meeting
between fourth-place Denver and the
fifth-place Wolverines. Michigan swept
the first series at Yost Arena, 9-4 and 7-
5.' The two teams will play a pair of
games at Denver University Arena,
and the team which scores the most
oals in the series will advance to round
wo of the WCHA playoffs.
The Pioneers have lost four games in
a row, including last weekend's double
besting by the WCHA's regular season
chirnpion, Minnesota. Denver will look
to winger Ken Berry and center Andy
Hill to provide the scoring punch. And
tlie-Wolverines must contend with net-
minder Scott Robinson, one of the top
goalkeepers in the WCHA.
O0uluth at Minnesota
The Golden Gophers will be playing

Duluth minus Neal Broten-considered
by many as the finest collegiate hockey
player in America, who dislocated his
left elbow two weeks ago against this
same Duluth team.
But the rest of the Minnesota scoring
machine will be on hand to face the
Bulldogs. The powerful Gopher attack
is led by Steve Ulseth, the WCHA
scoring champion, and runner-up
Aaron Broten. Duluth was drubbed by
Minnesota just a couple of weeks ago, 5-
2 and 9-1.
Colorado College at Wisconsin
The series between the Badgers aid
Colorado College has been moved back
to Saturday and Sunday nights because
of scheduling problems in Madison. The
extra- day's rest should help the Tigers,
who are licking their wounds inflicted
in the Michigan State series last week.
The WCHA's cellar occupant upended
Colorado College with two overtime
victories in East Lansing, 6-5 and 5-4.
Bruce Aikens is the team's leading
scorer, and is supported on defense by
Doug Lidster and Marc Chorney.
Coach Bob Johnson's icers are led by
Ron Vincent, Scott Lecy and center
John Newberry. And Terry Kleisenger
will perform the goaltending duties for
the second-place Badgers.
North Dakota at Tech
North Dakota, last season's NCAA
champions, finished in sixth place this
year in the WCHA. Gino

Gasparini's icers are a young team,
and have had a successful season for
the most part, but faltered badly
towards the end of the year.
Michigan Tech, who wasted the
Wolverines twice last weekend,
features goaltender Frank Krieber, an
outstanding senior. The Huskies, not an
offensive powerhouse, finished sur-
prisingly high in the WCHA accordng to

"People have
a hunger for
my Pilot Fineliner be- '..
cause they're always
fishing for a fine point penA
that writes through carbons. And
Pilot charges only 79c for it.
People get their hands on it and
forget its my pen. So I don't get no respect! I don't make out any better
with my Pilot Razor Point. It writes whip-cream smooth
with an extra fine line, its metal collar helps keep
the point from going squish-so people
love It. For only 89c they
should buy their own pen-
and show some re-
spctfor m
property."

Icers drop to fifth

i

By MARTHA CRALL
The Michigan hockey team continued
its hot streak through the first weekend
of spring break before turning ice cold
last weekend.
The icers swept Denver, then tied for
first place in the WCHA, 9-4 and 7-5, to
extend their winning streak to seven
games before losing two games to
Michigan Tech, 5-4 and 5-2.
Jeff Mars collected four goals and
*wo assists to earn co-WCHA Player of
the Week honors and pace the
Wolverines against Denver. The Mich-
igan offense, which averaged eight
goals per game during the winning
streak, dominated the Pioneers, who
have been among the leaders in defense
this season. Denver's offense, which
was second in power play scoring,
capitalized on only one of six power
play opportunities on Friday night. But
thanks to 13 Wolverine penalties the
' ollowing evening, the Pioneers scored
hree of their five goals with a one-man
advantage.
Paul Fricker and Rudy Varvari each
picked up a win in the series.
Then the Huskies came to town, but
they weren't the least bit intimidated
by the red-hot Wolverines. On Friday
night, Tech was down 4-2 in the third
period, but it wasn't out, as the prover-
bial roof caved in on the Wolverines
vith a little more than 13 minutes left in

the game. The Huskies scored three
straight goals - two on power plays - in
a relatively penalty-free game to hum-
ble Michigan.
Giordano started Varvari on Satur-
day, before 8,207 bi-partisan fans, the
largest crowd of the season and second
largest in Yost Arena history. But it
was the Huskies' fans who went home
happy, as Tech scored five unanswered
goals after the Wolverines had taken a
2-0 first period lead, to knock Michigan
into fifth place and earn third place for
themselves in the final standings.
