Michigan defenseman Alex Roberts sets his sights on the Ohio State goal during Saturday night's 3-3 tie at
Yost Ice Arena. Buckeye goalie Todd Fanning was solid in goal, notching 36 saves on the evening, including
several crucial stops in overtime.

Mike Moes, Roberts was in front of
the net for the rebound and scored a
decisive goal to put the game into
overtime with 20 seconds to go.
"Stoney (Don Stone) had the
puck and his shot came off and
rebounded and I tried to go to the far
side with it. I guess I had some luck
with me," Roberts said of his
emotional goal.
However, while Roberts' goal

with a tremendous amount of mo-

the penalty box.

A major factor in the Buckeye
comeback was the outstanding play
of goalie Todd Fanning. "To be in a

Fanning had 36 saves in the

Berenson expressed his frustration
with the series after Saturday's
