'M' icers hit peak...
... in season best streak
By PETE STEINERT
In recent years, spring break at Michigan has brought to mind two
things: fun in the sun for winter weary students and the end of another
not so memorable Wolverine hockey season.
This year, however, things may change. Rest easy though, Florida
is not predicting snow flurries for next week, but the hockey season
may not end as abrubtly as it has in the past for head coach Red
Berenson.
Unlike a year ago at this time when Michigan was losing eight
straight games heading into the Central Collegiate Hockey
Association playoffs, the third year coach has his team playing by far
its best hockey of the season. With the playoffs just two weeks away,
it could not have come at a better time.
The sixth-place Wolverines are 6-3-1 over the last five weeks and
riding a five-game unbeaten streak. In that 10-game span they have
outscored their opponents, 62-35.
Their recent surge should not come as a total shock to close hockey
followers. The players predicted back in October that the team would
start coming together around Christmas, and their prophesies have
proved accurate.
"Before Christmas with 10 freshmen in the lineup, they weren't
really sure what to expect," Myles O'Connor said. "(Now) from the
seniors on down to the freshmen, everybody's playing excellent
hockey."
So what does all this mean? It means that Michigan has a
legitimate chance of advancing past the first round of the playoffs,
something it has failed to do since joining the CCHA in 1981.
Forget the fact that its record is a modest 14-21-1. Like college
basketball experts say, it does not matter how your team starts but
how it finishes. You want your team peaking at post-season time, and
the Wolverines are indeed peaking.
"The important thing is we're improving, and this is a good time
of year to improve," Berenson said. "It's too late to reminisce about
should haves and could haves. The important thing is we've seen an
overall improvement during the season."
It is easy to see the team's improvement in all phases of the game
from the goaltending of Warren Sharples to the emergence of four
balanced forward lines.
Michigan's new found success has given the team a ne life, and
players have an air of confidence that has been missing in til, past.
"The way the team's going right now, if the score is lvk1, 3-3, in
the third (period), we know we're going to win," said senior right
wing Bruce Macnab. "We don't have doubts."
That's a switch. In the first half the Wolverines let so many games
slip away in the third period that the final frame had the same affect as
a wet bar of soap.
It does not appear to bother the team either that it will have to go
on the road for a best of three series most likely against Lake Superior
State. Michigan has shown this season that it can win away from
Yost Ice Arena.
"They're starting to get some genuine, not only individual
confidence, but team confidence," Berenson said. "If you look around
the room, we say, 'Geez, we can win. We can beat these teams.'
That's a good feeling."
"The way we're looking now, we're looking good for the playoffs,"
Macnab added. "We've got as good a chance as anyone."
So do not be surprised if when you return from your vacation
ventures, they are still playing hockey in Ann Arbor.

Blue wrestlers sweep
UDame and CMU

It turned out to be a very nice
Valentines Day weekend for the
Michigan wrestling team. The
Wolverines improved their overall
record to 9-5-1 with victories over
Notre Dame (31-7) on Friday night,
and Central Michigan (19-14) on
Sunday.
Michigan's rout of Notre Dame
was their largest margin of victory
this season. The Wolverines won
eight out of ten weight classes,
including 167 lbs. where unranked
junior Mike Amine surprised sixth
ranked All-American Chris Genesar
in a 9-3 decision. Amine won
again on Sunday to improve his
record to 22-12.
Also winning two matches this

weekend were Joe Pantaleo at 158
lbs., and Bob Potokar in thq
heavyweight division. Pantaleo, a
talented sophomore, raised his
record to 33-4 with two decisive
victories. Potokar is now 24-15 on
the season.
Most encouraging about this
weekend's victories were the
performances of Doug Wyland at
126 lbs., and John Fisher at 134
lbs. Michigan's two top wrestlers,
both ranked fourth in the country in
their respective decisions, returned
to action by winning two matches
apiece. Wyland, still recovering
from mono, improved his record to
23-3 with victories over David
Carlin of ND,18-1, and Harry
Richards of CMU, 6-4.,
