The Michigan Daily
ends in deadlock, 5-5
By CHUCK JAFFE
The only, similarity between the
Michigan hockey team that took the ice
last night, and the one that played last
year, is that the Zamboni ice-cleaning
machine is still maize and blue. Other-
wise it was a very offensive-minded
squad that battled to a 5-5 tie in the an-
nual Maize and Blue exhibition contest
at Yost Ice Arena.
After a defensive first period, the
Maize and Blue squads opened up with
the kind of scoring display that has not
been seen in Ann Arbor in quite a few
THE GAME started slowly, with the
first scoring opportunity coming after
11 minutes when Blue defenseman John
Hawkins almost scored against his own
team. After failing to clear the puck,
the Blue defense finally collapsed and.
Ted Speers scored the first of his four
goals at 13:51.
Speers struck again just 1:11 into the
second period, but two quick Blue goals
by defensemen Pat Goff and Mike Neff
tied the score. It stayed that way for ten
minutes, until Neff dug the puck out of a
pile-up and passed it to senior co-
captain Brad Tippett. Paul Kobylarz
then converted Tippett's pass, and the
Blue squad went in front 3-2.
The teams traded goals in the third
period, with Speers scoring at 1:48 to tie
the game. Then four goals in just 3:20
made the score 5-4 in favor of the Blue
team. Don Krussman scored first for
the Blue, before Dave McIntyre
finished a perfectly executed three-on-
two break to bring the Maize squad
back to within one.
KELLY MCCRIMMON then teamed
with Paul Kobylarz and freshman Paul
Spring to break up a Maize clear and
score against replacement goalie Alex
Sosa. That left it for Speers to finish the
scoring, just 16 seconds after McCrim-
mon's goal. After winning the face-off,
Speers teamed with freshman Chris
Seychel and Billy Reid to score a
breakaway goal over a sprawling Mark
The offensive showing. pleased
Michigan coach John Giordano, but he
felt that the defense needed more work
to be competitive.
"We have a sign in the locker room
that says 4-2," Giordano said. "We feel
that if we score 4 goals a game that we
can win a lot of games. We,were cer-
tainly capable of scoring tonight.
"On the other hand," he continued,
"every aspect of our defensive play
needs to be improved. I can't tell you
how many times our defense put the
puck on the other team's stick when we
were trying to clear. If you do that
against Michigan State or Bowling
Green, they're going to score. Overall, I
was happy, because we were better on
offense, and we will improve on defen-
