the Michigan record to 3-1.
In addition, Michigan's defense will
have to avoid a collapse similar to the
one which occurred in the third period of
Friday night's contest at Yost Ice
Arena. In a span of 45 seconds, Western
Michigan blew three goals past Fricker
to slice Michigan's lead from 5-1 to 5-4.
Any such lapse against Minnesota may
prove to be fatal to the fortunes of the
Wolverines this weekend. J
Offensively, assistant coach John
Giordano plans to "use four lines on a
permanent basis, the same as against
Western Michigan." Thus far, the line
of sophomore center Don Krussman,
senior left wing Gordie Hampson, and
junior right wing Dennis May have
been the most effective for Michigan.
To offset the scoring prowess of Bruno
Baseotto, who left the team last week,
the second line of senior center Roger
Bourne, sophomore left wing Ted
Speers and left wing Brad Tippett have
to work that much harder.
The key for Michigan, however, will
rest in the quick hands and feet of
goalie Fricker, the man who will be
responsible for repelling the barrage of
the Broten brothers. According to Min-
nesota head coach Buetow, Fricker's
performance in last year's Golden
Gopher-Wolverine games "was the best
goaltending performance I've ever
seen in a college series."
Michigan took both games from Min-
nesota last year at Yost Arena and it
will take another stellar effort from
Fricker to repeat the 1979 results. Both
the F-iday and Saturday night contests
begin t 8:30 EST.
