Superior Lakers drown icers'
By RICK KAPLAN
One month ago, RPI hockey coach
Mike Addesa called Michigan the best
offensive hockey team in the country.
Last weekend, the same offense
scored only four goals, as Lake
Superior State College swept a series
at Yost Ice Arena, 6-3 Friday and 7-1
The explosive offense which scored
17 goals against RPI was drowned by
the Lakers close-checking style.
Michigan (12-20 overall, 10-18 con-
ference) managed just two shots on
net in the third period Friday, and
only 20 all game Saturday. Lake
Superior goalie Joe Shawhan became
the first netminder to hold the
Wolverines under two goals this
"THE THIRD period (Friday
night) was a terrible period," said
Michigan coach Red Berenson. "I
thought the first two periods we were
right there, but the third period was
the poorest we've played in some
Lake Superior (20-13-1, 17-12-1) led
4-3 after two, but it completely
dominated the final frame. Both of
Michigan's shots on net came in the
last minute, long after the game was
decided. "We're known for our defen-
se," said Laker coach Frank An-
zalone, "but two (shots) is a little
Things got lower Saturday, as
Shawhan was barely tested after
Michigan left winger Jeff Urban
scored in the first minute of the game.
"We moved the puck much better
three weeks or a month ago," said
Berenson, who has now lost all ten
times he has faced Lake Superior.
"We're just not moving the puck with
the same confidence.
"WE'RE NOT scoring with the
same consistency. When (Brad) Mc-
Caughey misses his chances, you
know your offense is not going well."
Berenson thought Lake Superior was
going well. "There were times in the
(Saturday) game when it was like an
NHL team playing a college team,"
said the second-year coach.
Anzalone refused to disagree. "Red
knows the game," he said. "If that's

"I think because we were trying to
play catch-up, we stopped playing
smart hockey," said Wolverine defen-
seman Myles O'Connor.
THE MICHIGAN defense smarted
Saturday night, as the Lakers blitzed
goalies Tim Makris and Mike Rossi
with 46 shots. "We totally let down de-
fensively," said O'Connor. "We had
tunnel vision towards their net. We
weren't paying attention to what was
happening behind us, and they got a
lot of long passes to guys behind us."
"We wanted to make short crisp
passes," said Anzalone. "If you stay
with short passes and the opponent
steps up, then you can make a long
pass once in a while. We opened it up
for two long passes and two
breakaways." And two goals.
Lake Superior broke away from the
pack at the middle of the Central
Collegiate Hockey Association to clin-
ch home ice in the playoffs with the
Saturday victory. Eighth-place
Michigan will have to win at least
three of its four remaining games to
move up in the standings.
ANZALONE WAS standing proud:
after wrapping up one of the top four.
slots. "We're starting to come out of
our slump," said the Laker coach,
whose team lost six in a row in
January. "Our people are starting to
get happier. They feel better about
their performance, and the work.
ethnic is coming back."
"I don't think strategy or technique
mattered as much as plain old-
fashioned hard work," said Berenson
"Our team should learn something
from the effort that (Lake Superior)
came in here and showed."
Urban believes his team puts on a
better show against the top teams. "It
just seems like we play to the level of
our opponent," the freshman said.
"But we can't use that as an excuse
anymore, because all of the opponents
are above us now."
the way he felt, we'll go with it."
THE LAKERS went with a different of-
fensive style than usual to exploit
Michigan's weaknesses, and it paid
off. Lake Superior scored two fluke
goals in the opening game on scram-
bles in front of the net. "We usually
don't go to the net well," Anzalone
said, "but (Friday night) we did to
keep the pressure on. Pressure,
pressure, pressure, and you get a
cheap goal once in a while."
Michigan could not score goals,
cheap or otherwise. The offensive
problems were caused primarily by
playing come-from-behind hockey.
"When you get behind," said Mic-
higan captain Frank Downing, "you
get so disappointed, and you say,
'Damn it, I'm going to do it myself.'
That's when you make stupid
