INJURY RIDDLED BLUE FA
By KATIE BLACKWELL
After a mid-season skid of nine straight losses, the 11-14-1
Western Michigan hockey team is hoping to use this
weekend's series with Michigan (12-13) as a turning point.
The first step in the Bronco road to recovery came with a 4-2
victory over Northern Michigan last Saturday in the final
game of the split series.
"Our players were down after losing (8-7) Friday," said
WMU head coach Bill Wilkinson. "But they channelled that
disappointment into momentum, momentum that could
carry over to the Michigan series."
IF MOMENTUM COUNTS for anything, the Broncos have
this year's edge going into the weekend's double bill. In the
pre-season Battle Creek tournament, Western topped the
Wolverines in overtime, 6-5, the only meeting of the two
teams this season.
Both teams are battle-weary, a fact that could be a deter-
mining factor in this late-season match-up. Michigan will
still be without the services of injured right wing Frank
Downing and defenseman Mike Neff.
According to Wolverine head coach John Giordano, the
defense will remain somewhat weakened by the abscence of
sophomore Greg Hudas who is "having complications with
grades," and will not dress against the Broncos.
- THE GOOD NEWS for Michigan is the return of senior co-'
captain Kelly McCrimmon at right wing. McCrimmon has
missed seven regular season games, as well as the Great'
Lakes Invitational, with a shoulder injury.
The Broncos however, are not taking the wounded

"They're banged up physically," said Wilkinson, "btd I
can't imagine them being any less ready to come at ug."
Western's assistant coach Tom Newton echoed the sen-
timent, "We~dave a lot of respect for how hard this team
(Michigan) works. Besides, we're a little bit banged up our-
A KEY INJURY for Western is that of center Chuck Chiat-
to. The Cranbrook alumnus and former Red Wing dr4ft
choice left last Friday's contest with a knee injury and is ""ot
expected to see action against Michigan.
The Broncos' offense is paced by Dan Dorian, a sophomore
right wing. Dorian tops Western and is ranked among CCIA
leaders with 27 goals and 24 assists. Complimenting his out-
standing season, Dorian holds a 29-game scoring streak that
dates back to the final three contests of last season.
The man responsible for cracking Dorian's streak is
Michigan goalie Mark Chiamp. But Chiamp stressed the in-
portance of the series to the CCHA standings. With third-
place Northern Michigan travelling to take on difficult first-
place Bowling Green, the Wolverines could well move up in
"If we could win both our games, we could move up to four-
th place," said the junior goaltender. "All the guys are ex-
cited about it.'
The Wolverines head to Kalamazoo for tonight's opening
contest at Lawson Ice Arena, but the action will be back' in
town tomorrow night at Yost Arena. Both games start at 7:30

MONTREAL (AP) - The Montreal
Expos have called a press conference
for 1 p.m. EST today at which time it is
expected the National League' baseball
club will announce the signing of
veteran free agent Pete Rose, the for-
mer Cincinnati Reds' star who was
released by the Philadelphis Phillies
following the 1983 World Series.
A spokesman for the Expos declined
comment on the subject of the news
conference. Rose, on a Cincinnati radio
talk show Wednesday, refused to
specify which team: he expects to
join, but said he held discussions with
Montreal last week and would enjoy
playing with the Expos.
