Wolverines battle Buckeyes to - tie
By CHRIS GERBASI
Many of Michigan's hockey players
kissed their parents in a pre-game
ceremony for Parents' Weekend last
night. Little did these players know that
they would later kiss their sisters.
The Wolverines and Ohio State
played to a 4-4 tie before a crowd of
2,544 at Yost Arena in one of the more
exciting and well-played games the
fans have seen this year.
The teams were even at 2-2 going into
the third period. Each team scored
twice in the third, with a goal by
Buckeye freshman Darcy Gryba at
10:50 setting up the overtime.
Both Michigan and Ohio State had
numerous scoring chances during the
rest of the third period and into over-
In the overtime the Wolverines had
apparently won the game at 1:43, but
the referee ruled that the puck was
kicked in by Joe Lockwood. The puck
clearly went in off his skate.
The Buckeyes' closest threat came
midway through the overtime when
defenseman Mike Rousseau rifled a
shot off the post to the right of Michigan
goalie Mark Chiamp.
With just three seconds left in the
game a face-off was held in Michigan's
zone. Buckeye coach Jerry Welsh
pulled his goalie, Bob Krautsak, from
goal for the extra attacker. The
Wolverines' Frank Downing got the
puck off the face-off and sailed it down
the ice about two feet wide of the aban-
Ohio State jumped out in front at the
four-minute mark of the first period
and it looked like another typical slow
start for Michigan. Gryba got the puck
in the corner and skated in front of
Chiamp unmolested. Chiamp made the
initial save on Gryba but the freshman
got his own rebound and flipped the
puck high over Chiamp, who was on his
back. The goal was Gryba's eighth of
year, and he has notched a point in
Just two minutes and 44 seconds later
another freshman, Jeff Madill, picked
up a loose puck behind the Wolverines'
net and put it past Chiamp on the short
side. Gryba drew the only assist on the
Michigan outshot OSU 14-7 in the
"We knew we outplayed them that
period," said senior captain Ray Dries.
"But things just weren't going our
Michigan continued to apply pressure
throughout the second period and its
work finally paid off at 3:17. Center
Bruce Macnab took a pass from
Downing at center ice and put on a bur-
st of speed to get past the defense. Mac-
nab was then all alone in front of the net
and went to the backhand to score past
The Wolverines tied the game at 2-2
late in the period on a persistent effort
by Brad McCaughey. The freshman
right wing was stopped on a pad save by
Krautsak and fanned on a second at-
tempt. The third try was a charm,
though, as McCaughey finally slid the
puck under Krautsak. Tom Stiles and
John Bjorkman assisted on Mc-
Caughey's eight goal of the season.
There was little action in the third
period until the eight-minute mark.
Then Michigan seemingly broke open
the game with two goals in 17 seconds.
First, Dries skated in over the blue
line and drew Krautsak to one side of
the net. Dries backhanded a pass to
Lockwood, who had a wide open net for
his fourth goal.
Mike Neff then fired a shot from just
inside the circle to beat Krautsak and
put the Wolverines up by two goals.
But the Buckeyes answered with two
goals of their own in a span of 49 secon-
ds. The first was backhander by fresh-
man Rick Brebant and the second was
scored by Gryba.
"When they got the third goal we said
'Oh no, here it comes again,"' said
Dries. "We have to get out of that
"When it was 4-4 we picked it up
again. We dominated toward the end
and in the overtime I thought we out-

DETROIT (UPI) - Doug
Wickenheiser scored two goals and
teammate Bernie Federko added a goal
and an assist last night to lead the St.
Louis Blues to a 5-3 victory over the
Detroit Red Wings.
Federko broke a 2-2 tie at 3:10 of the
second period when a shot by Joe
Mullen deflected off his skate into the
net. The Blues made it 4-2 with 4:28
remaining in the middle period when
Brian Sutter pounced on a rebound for
his team-leading 12th goal.
DETROIT'S Ron Duguay opened the
scoring at 1:24 of the first period when
he knocked his own rebound past goalie
Rick Wamsley. Wickenheiser tied the
score while the Blues were short han-
ded at 7:05 and Kevin LaVellee put St.
Louis ahead 2-1 on an unassisted effort
at 9:24. Detroit pulled into a 2-2 tie on
Bob Manno's short handed goal at
12:14 of the first period.
Detroit outshot St. Louis 10-3 in the
third period and the Red Wings cut the
Blues lead to one goal when defen-
seman Brad Park scored from a goal
mouth scramble at 10:11.
Wickenheiser sealed the Blues vic-
tory with an empty net goal with 1:03
The victory was the fifth in six games
for St. Louis, 11-9-1. The Blues trail'
Norris Division leader Chicago by one
point. Detroit, which has only two vic-
tories in its last 10 outings, fell to 6-13-3.
Rangers 3, Maple Leafs 3
NEW YORK (AP)-Rick Vaive's 25-
foot wrist shot from the right faceoff
circle went between New York goalie
Glen Hanlon's legs with 1:24 left in
regulation, and the Tornoto Maple
Leafs skated to a 3-3 tie with the
Rangers last night in the National
Defensenian Reijo Routsalainen
scored two goals, including the
Rangers' first power play goal in 21 at-
tempts as New York took a 3-1 lead only
to see it disappear in the third period.
ROUTSALAINEN'S power play goal
came at 12:20 of the second period and
gave the Rangers a 2-0 margin. His 50-
foot slapshot appeared to be deflected
by teammate Christ Kontos, but Rout-
salainen was credited with the score.
Routsalainen had given the Rangers
a 1-0 lead 5:50 into the contest when he
took Mike Allison's lead pass and
scored on a breakaway. Allison also set
up the Rangers' other goal, by Goerge
McPhee at 2:42 of the third period.
Allison skated down right wing and his
pass across the goal crease was perfect
as McPhee tapped the puck past goal
