By JIM DAVIS
The first half of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association
is already winding down. Some teams play another series
next weekend, but Michigan doesn't.
And neither does Ferris State.
That makes this weekend's series extra important for both
teams. The Wolverines want to continue to build on a three-
game winning streak. The boys from Big Rapids want to
begin building for the second half by finishing the first part of
the year on a high note.
THE BULLDOGS visit Yost Ice Arena tonight at 7:30 p.m.
fresh off a split at home against Northern Michigan last
weekend, which put their CCHA mark at 5-7, good for eighth
place.
That's only one game behind the Wolverines (6-6), Wildcats
(7-7), and Broncos of Western Michigan (5-5), who are locked
in a fifth-place tie.
That makes this a mighty big series. Only the top eight of
eleven CCHA teams advance to the playoffs, and the seventh
and eighth-place teams will likely end up playing at either
Ohio State or Bowling Green, the top two teams in the con-
ference.

Hughston, who has a 3-3 record in the CCHA (6-3 overall).
Sophomore Norm Young will be his back-up. Both netmin-
ders have had difficulty putting back-to-back*good games
together, Bertrand said.
Both Ferris and Michigan are battling injuries. The
Wolverines will play without defensemen Mike Neff and Greg
Hudas - both had arthroscopic knee examinations on Mon-
day and are out at least a month.
ALSO IN the stands is left winger Chris Seychel,,
who was hurt at Northern Michigan two weeks ago. Seychel,
the team's second leading scorer at the time, has a severely
bruised thigh, but could be back soon after the holiday break.
The Bulldogs, on the other hand, are minus left winger
Scott Seaver. The Harper Woods sophomore had nine goals
and seven assists before sustaining a shoulder injury several
weeks ago. Defenseman Rob Brownlie also has been out with
a broken thumb.
Center Graham Craig has sparked the Bulldogs since
returning to the lineup from the injured list. The junior has
tallied six goals and nine assists in only seven games this
season.
"CRAIG IS really a key player," said Bertrand. "He's big

-- Ferris State coach
Dick Bertrand (left)
on his two-time, all-
CCHA defenseman.

"IT'S THE last series before Christmas," said Ferris State
coach Dick Bertrand, "and we'd like to go home with a .500
record."
That would take a sweep over the home-ice Wolverines,
which Bertrand says won't be easy.
"We have the book on their goaltending and size, and they
,have a lot of individual talent. If Michigan comes out hitting
our young, inexperienced club (15 freshmen and sophomores
could see action), we'll probably resort to that style.
"WE CAN take the rough style of play as long as it's legal.
We're going in prepared to skate, but we won't back down if it
borders on roughness."
Bertrand got a look at the Wolverines early this season in
the Battle Creek Classic (the schools didn't,face each other).
Though Michigan didn't play particularly well in the tourney,
the second-year coach was impressed.
'Michigan was like a sleeping giant. They looked slow at
Battle Creek, (but) now they've been nudged and they've got
" oneeye open."
One Wolverine who has really come alive is goaltender'
Mark Chiamp. The junior has allowed only five goals in the
last three games and is keeping Michigan in most games.
"WE'LL TRY to penetrate Chiamp and keep the pressure
on," said Bertrand, pointing out that Michigan has been out-
shot in most league games, only to be saved by Chiamp's ef-
forts.
In his own net, Bertrand said he plans to go with junior Rob

(6-2, 190) and can handle the rough going. But just when we
got Craig back from an injury we lost Seaver. Seaver was a
key to our power play and best face-off man."
Randy Merriweather is the top scorer for Ferris State,
having registered twelve goals (six on the power play) and 23
assists. Defenseman and captain Jim File also is a scoring
catalyst, showing three goals and 20 assists this season.
File is a two-time all-CCHA selection aid one of the top
power-play pointmen in the league. Last weekend against
Northern, File set up three goals, sparking a come-from-
behind win on Friday night, and then Saturday slapped in a
power play tally.
"JIM SHOWED us consistency last weekend," said Ber-
trand. "He was the Jimmy File of old. He has a cannon shot.
He just hasn't been consistent all season.''
The Bulldogs' power play may not be as effective against
Michigan. The Wolverines' penalty killing unit has allowed
just one goal each of the past five weekends, while compiling
a kill-ratio of .089 in 56 opportunities. On the season the
Wolverines have allowed 17 goals in 101 short-handed
situations (.168). Bertrand said that between .16 and .18 is
considered excellent.
All things considered, Bertrand is going into the series with
guarded optimism. "We've definitely not played a truly
physical club (like Michigan) and we've had difficulty on the
road. We'll have our hands full, but we're capable of doing
the job."
