A deflected puck and a moment of
That's all it took for the Michigan
hockey team to lose to Ohio State, 4-3, in
overtime last night, before a crowd of
2,137 at Yost Arena.
JUST 2:43 into the extra period, Ohio
State's Bob Gruhl put a shot in front of
the Michigan net. The puck glanced off
Wolverine Frank Downing's stick
toward the Michigan goal, catching
goalie Jon Elliott off guard. The puck
slid slowly through Elliott's legs to give
the Buckeyes the victory in the second
overtime in as many nights.
"The puck was down in the corner,
passed across out in front," said Elliott.
"I was moving to the right to anticipate
the play. Unfortunately it went off of
one of our players, hit the post and went
Michigan head coach Red Berenson
was as frustrated as Elliott. "Last night
I thought we won and the ref took away
the goal. Tonight we lost on an even
more flukey goal. It's too bad.
"WE NEEDED this game to build on
last night," Berenson added. "It could
have been a great weekend."
Michigan had tied the game at 3-3 at
the 8:08 mark of the third period when
Brad McCaughey tumbled and slid
toward the OSU goal. From his back the
freshman knocked the puck past
sprawling Buckeye goalie Bob Kraut-
Doug May put the Wolverines on the
board first early in the opening period
when he skated in on Krautsak. The
senior left wing took a pass from Paul
Kobylarz and flipped in his first goal of
the season at 3:15.
MICHIGAN SET the pace of. the fast-
moving frame, controlling the puck
with sharp passing. Dan Goff recorded
the Wolverines' second goal on a pic-
ture-perfect play at the 5:50 mark. On a
three-on-two break, Downing fed a pass
to Ray Dries, drawing Krautsak to the
right side of the net. Dries promptly
slipped the puck to Goff out in front who
smacked it into the open corner to
record the short-handed goal.
But the second period was all Ohio
State. The Buckeyes ran up three unan-
swered goals as the momentum of the
contest took a complete turn. Perhaps it
was a sign of things to come when Gruhl
unleashing a blistering shot from the
left point at 9:30 to sparkthe comeback.
The Buckeyes then caught Elliott flat-
footed when what seemed to be an
errant shot was deflected into the net
off the stick of Dave Beaudin.
Ohio State scored again just over a
minute later when Michigan's defense
momentarily collapsed. Elliott came
out of the crease to clear the puck but
ventured out too far, giving Jeff Madill
an open target. The Buckeye freshman
fired a quick wrist-shot to notch the
"IT'S A gamble any time you do
that,"' said Elliott. "It's like being a
beached whale. You've got to get the
puck out of your zone. I got to the puck,
but I didn't get it out, and it just hap-
pened that one of their guys was there."
Coach Jerry Welsh's team went
ahead at 17:17 when Rick Brebant
found himself alone in front of the
Wolverine goal. Dan Rothgery centered
the puck for Brebant, who whistled a
shot over Elliott's shoulder. The
Michigan goalie barely waved a glove
at the puck as it sailed by him into the
"When the missed plays cost us a
game, it's frustrating," said Elliott. "If
I hadn't made the missed plays we
would have won the game in regulation
and wouldn't have had to worry about
"I'll just have to work hard and
hopefully the guys will still be behind
me, even though I screwed up this
A bucking shame
