Top-ranked Falcons invade

Yost

By MIKE MCGRAW
Who's number one?
That's a question that sports fans all over the
country have been asking this week. But in
Bowling Green, Ohio, there's no question as to
which team is number one - the Bowling Green'
Falcons. At least in hockey, that is.
THE FALCONS have been the top team in
college hockey since they swept previously top-
ranked Ohio State on December 2 and 3, and
currently own a 16-game winning streak.
This weekend, Bowling Green carries its lofty
ranking and 19-1 record to Yost Ice Arena for a
showdown with the injury-plagued Wolverines,
who will have to shut down the Falcon's powerful
offense with a depleted corps of defensemen.
Blue-liners Mike Neff and Greg Hudas are still
sidelined with knee injuries, forcing coach John
Giordano to use converted forward Doug May and

inexperienced Tom Dolan on defense again: * this
weekend.
"WE STILL HAVE four guys out for this
series," said Giordano. "The biggest problem is
no depth at defense. We've got guys we can put in
at forward."
Michigan willuse many spare offensemen in the
series as well, because right wingers Frank
Downing and Kelly McCrimmon were hurt in the
Wolverines' exciting pre-vacation series against
Ferris State and are not yet healthy, and fresh-
man center Bruce Macnab may not see action
either after suffering a concussion last week in the
opening game of the Great Lakes Invitational
Tournament. However Chris Seychel, who was out
for two weeks with a thigh bruise, will be ready to
play.
But even with Seychel, last year's leading goal-

scorer, in the lineup, the Wolverines may have
trouble lighting up the scoreboard against a
Bowling Green defense that is tops in the CCHA
and led by the conference's leading goalie, fresh-
man Gary Kruzich.
"WE'VE BEEN getting some great goaltending
this season," said Falcon coach Jerry York. "But
we've had a lot of close games this year. We're
certainly not way above the rest of the com-
petition."
So far this season Bowling Green has struggled
against some weaker teams, but has been very
successful against some of its toughest opponents.
The Falcons have swept Ohio State, Michigan
State and Michigan Tech already this season,
while their only loss came at the hands of eighth-
place Lake Superior.
Bowling Green features a balanced scoring at-
tack led by junior center Dan Kane (11 goals, 19
assists) and the CCHA's premier defenseman.

Garry Galley (6-23). Jamie Wansborough (24 poin-
ts), Dave Ellett (24 pts.) and John Samanski (23
pts.) round out the top five for BG.
"We have a lot of depth on the team," said York.
"All our lines are capable of scoring, so you can't
concentrate on just one line."
Instead, Michigan will have to concentrate on
playing as well as they possibly can to have a
chance this weekend.
"What we're going to have to do is stop them
before they get started out of their own zone," said
Giordano. "We have to bump them every chance
we get and we have to get some shots off when we
have the puck because I don't think their goalie is
that good."
It will be a big job to stop the Falcon's 16-game
victory string, but the Wolverines have a streak of
their own on the line. Michigan has not been swept
in a series at Yost Arena since Michigan Tech did
the trick in February, 1981.

Wolverines flounder.. .
... action flourishes

Mich tex

By JOE EWING
So, Michigan didn't win a single game at the Great
Lakes Invitational over the winter break. Big deal, it
was still one heck of a tournament.
The Wolverines, tournament champion Michigan
State, Michigan Tech and Northern Michigan all
treated the two-night tournament record crowd of 40,344
that turned out at Joe Louis Arena to some bone-crushing
hits, pretty scoring plays and intense school rivalry -
the way college hockey was meant to be played -
proving once again that the GLI is the best college tour-
ney around.
Michigan looked great in it's opener against Tech,
despite the fact they were missing five key people,
taking the Huskies into overtime before losing the hard-
hitting contest, 5-4. Mark Chiamp had a super night
between the posts for the Wolverines, turning away 40 of
45 Tech shots and robbing the Huskies on two
breakaways.
The second night, however, was a different story for
the boys wearing the maize and blue, as they dropped
the consoliation game to Northern, 5-3. The Wolverines
looked sluggish allowing the Wildcats to dominate most
of the game. In the second period, Michigan managed
only two shots on Northern netminder Jeff Poeschl,
while Northern notched two goals and 12 shots against
Jon Elliott.
Michigan was obviously tired in the game, due mainly
to the recent rash of injuries, which forced healthy
players to take more ice time. Left winger Chris
Seychel was back from a leg muscle ,injury, but
Michigan was still without the services of wings Kelly

McCrimmon (shoulder) and Frank Downing (knee), as
well as defensemen Mike Neff (knee) and Greg Hudas
(knee).
But despite Michigan's impressiveness or unim-
pressiveness, depending on which game you watched,
THE 'game of the tournament did not involve the
Wolverines. Instead, it was the championship game
between Tech and Michigan State.
Both teams came out hitting. In fact, the hitting star-
ted before the game got underway when the Spartans
and Huskies went at it during the warmups. State
dominated the contest early but Tech managed to fight
back and keep dead even until the last half of the third
period when State exploded for four goals and a 6-2 vic-
tory.
Tech and State were playing for keeps, as was eviden-
ced by the 31 penalties called in the game. Things got
rough right off the opening faceoff as State lost its top
scorer Newell Brown barely one minute into the game
with an ankle and knee injury. But that was only the
beginning as the Huskies and Spartans squared off
numerous times.
The teams' dislike for each other sparked many of the
brawls, but hatred was not the only thing to keep both
squads hot. The North American record crowd of 21,402
was also a factor in keeping the teams fired up.
For a while it looked like the only people that would
survive the contest were the referees, but both the teams
and fans showed something you don't see an awful lot in
intense rivalries. When the game was over they shook
hands and left - the way college hockey was meant to be
played.
