'Icers cool Flames, 5-2
By TAM BENTLEY
Michigan got off to a fiery start
against Illinois-Chicago last night and
extinguished the Flames 5-2 at Yost Ice
The Wolverines were clearly the
ominant force in the first period as the
majority of the play was in Flame
territory. The scoring began early as
the game's first goal was netted after
only three minutes of play. Michigan's
Ray Dries took a pass from behind the
Illinois-Chicago net and fired it past
goalie Rich Blakey from directly in
front of the goal.
LESS THAN a minute later, co-
captain Ted Speers, with some fancy
puck handling, out-maneuvered a
Flames opponent and slipped an
unassisted goal past Blakey's left side.
Michigan goalie Jon Elliott tried to
keep the Flames scoreless in the first
period by knocking down a slapshot
from the blue-line but the blocked puck
was picked up by Illinois-Chicago's Jeff
McIntyre, who then fired it into the net
to put the Flames on the board. The fir-
st 20 minutes ended with the Wolverines
on top 2-1.
Michigan's Jim McCauley opened the
second period with another Wolverine
goal as he picked up a blocked Speers
slapshot and rifled it past Blakey.
SPEERS THEN scored the fourth
Michigan goal at 5:52 by making an in-
credible off-balance, back-handed shot
that slipped past the Flames goalie.
The Wolverine scoring barrage con-
tinued as McCauley netted yet another
goal, making use of a Michigan power
play opportunity as Flame Dave Cronin
was in the penalty box for holding.
Wolverine goalie Elliottwas able to
hold Illinois-Chicago scoreless in the
second period, thus the third stanza
opened with the Michigan icers on top
by a comfortable 5-1 margin.
THE THIRD period was low in
scoring but high in brutality as the two
teams went after each other without
reserve, knocking each other into the
boards and literally attacking anyone
who had possession of the puck.
Illinois-Chicago scored the period's
lone goal when a shot by McIntyre
sailed over Elliott's shoulder and
caught the upper right corner of the net.
The game ended with a 5-2 Michigan
victory and, accompanied by the over-
time win Friday night, gave the ninth-
place Wolverine icer squad a much-
needed weekend series sweep.
"The key to our play was that we had
a pretty good defense," said Michigan
coach John Giordano. "The defense
played better this weekend and we're
hoping to build on this."
Illinois-Chicago is in a three-way tie
for the CCHA's tenth place and holds a
5-16 record, which may have had
something to do with the Wolverines'
"They're not the toughest team to
play," said Giordano, "and our goalie
made the saves."
Giordano and his Wolverine squad
will travel next weekend to the north
country of the upper penninsula and
Sault Ste. Marie to take on the Lake
Superior State Lakers, who are curren-
tly among the three teams tied for last
place in the CCHA.
