Icers take a breather
from conference play
by Andrew Gottesman
Daily Hockey Writer
Michigan's hockey team will take a break from CCHA competition and
the road tonight when it takes on Western Ontario in an exhibition game.
While it may be a breather from league play, the "exhibition" (Yost Ice
Arena, 7:30 p.m.) is hardly being looked upon as such by Michigan coach
"It's like any other game," Berenson said. "It goes on our record and
counts in determining NCAA bids at the end of the season."
Berenson is not looking at the game as a sure-win. "They've played
more games than us so they might have more of a game readiness," he
said. "But we might experiment a little with some things like line
"As far as Canadian University hockey goes, it's pretty good," added
senior forward and Alberta native Ryan Pardoski. "Most of their kids have
played junior hockey. Expect a good game."
The ice at Yost will be a welcome sight for Michigan (1-0-1), who is
coming off a road trip to Miami (OH) and will play its next five games
away from Ann Arbor. "It breaks up the road mentality," Berenson said.
Admission is free to all students.
HOLD THAT LINE: When Miami tied Michigan, 2-2, Friday, it rep-
resented a major defensive achievement for the Redskins. Miami held the
opposition to under three goals only twice in 32 league games last season.
STANDING ROOM ONLY: Miami's Goggin Ice Arena has a listed
capacity of 2,200. But the Redskins, who have finished last in the CCHA
the past four years, led the conference in percentage of capacity in
attendance for home games in 1988-89. They averaged 2,450 fans, or 111
percent of capacity.
HANGING TOUGH: The Wolverines successfully killed all seven
powerplays the Redskins mounted last weekend. Michigan itself converted
on three of eight powerplays.
UNLUCKY RANKING?: Michigan was ranked 13th nationally in the
WMEB-Media poll. CCHA counterparts Michigan State, Lake Superior
and Bowling Green were 1st , 6th and 10th, respectively.

OXFORD - In last weekend's
hockey games between Michigan and
Miami, Ohio, there was one
ingredient which stood out above all,
even above sophomore sensation
Denny Felsner's four goals.
Both Warren Sharples of Mich-
igan and the Redskins' Mark Mi-
chaud played spectacular in Friday
night's 2-2 tie, before a sellout,'
standing room crowd of 3,068.
Sharples came up big stopping
25 shots only allowing a screened
shot and a tip in to get by. "Theyr
were tough goals," Sharples said,
but he was able to stand tall to all
the other attacks.
However, it was Redskin goalie
Michaud who stole the show, foiling
a plethora of good opportunities for
the Wolverines, turning away 46
saves in all.
"Goaltending kept them in the
game both nights," Sharples said.
Michaud, a walk-on last season
with a 7-12 record and a 5.07 goals
against average, became the starting
goalie this year when senior Steve
McKichan left to the Vancouver
Canucks organization this summer.
"(Michaud) made us look bad or
we made him look good," said
Michigan coach Red Berenson in
reference to the many scoring
opportunities the Wolverines squan-
dered on the night.
"We've got an outstanding goalie
in Mark Michaud," added Miami
coach George Gwozdecky.d"(Mich-
igan) had some good chances, but
Michaud was there. If it hadn't been
for (Michaud), the game would have
Goaltending shines in
series against Miami
been over earlier."
"I made the big save and the
defense was ablebto clear it," said
Michaud. "There's more pressure on
me because McKichan left to the
pros, but I just try to keep (pressure)
Two of the biggest saves of the
night came against Jim Ballantine's
shorthanded breakaway 11:48 into
the third period to keep the score
even at one and a Mike Moes shot
from the slot at the 20:00 mark to
send the game into overtime.
Continuing with Friday night's
performances, Sharples again dis-
played consistency and solid goal-
tending in front of the net, but
Michaud was unable to duplicate his
heroics from the night before.
Michigan capitalized its chances
this night, responding for four goals
within five minutes in the first
period. As the first period buzzer
sounded, Michigan walked to the
lockerroom with a 5-1 lead and
Michaud did not return.
Wolverine defenseman Todd
Copeland summed it up: "Maybe
(Michaud) didn't eat the same thing
as he did Friday night."
However, frosh Vito Mazzoli
replaced Michaud at the beginning of
the second to mark his first
collegiate action and it was deja vu.
"I was very nervous," said the
rookie goaltender. "I give the coach a
lot of credit for showing some
confidence in me," Mazzoli added.
Mazzoli responded to his entrance
by turning away 23 of 24 shots in*
his 40 minutes of work only
allowing Don Stone's unassisted
goal to penetrate across the goal line
with 1:16 to go into the game.
Michigan's last goal by Jim Bal-
lantine was put into an empty net as
the Wolverines won, 7-4.
"I thought I played exceptionally
well and I expect to receive some
more time in the future," Mazzoli*
"Every team reacts differently
when a goalie change occurs,"
Sharples said. "And I think they
rallied around him."
Berenson believes that if yot
hold your goals-against-average
under three, a team will be suc-
cessful in the conference. And it is
just this area in which Miami needs
improvement, as they held a team
under three goals in only 2 games
As far as the Wolverines,
Sharples continued his play of late
last season and if he continues like
this, the Michigan team may be
skating in front of the best
goaltender in the nation.
"Every game might come down
to one shot or one play," Berenson
These games proved that.
