OXFORD, Ohio - This weekend was a Wolverine hockey fan's dream
come true. Friday, the defense gave up only one goal, the offense racked up
eleven goals, and the rookies were awesome. Saturday, they clobbered Mi-
ami again, 9-3.
The first five goals Friday were all scored by first-year players - two
from David Oliver, two from Brian Wiseman, and another by David Wright.
Mike Stone later added an assist to contribute to the game highlights.
"It's good for our freshmen to break that bubble," Michigan hockey
coach Red Berenson said after the game.
Maybe they didn't know they were supposed to be that good on opening
After the explosive start, the veterans kicked into high gear. Junior
Denny Felsner scored two and had an assist and sophomore Dave Roberts
also scored two with an assist. Defenseman Patrick Neaton even contributed
a goal and an assist.
"He's a very offensive-minded defenseman," Berenson said.
He's also a very defensive-minded defensemen. The Redskin offense only
had eleven shots on goal the entire game. Of them, only one went in, and
that was late in the game.
The Wolverine defense was so dominant over Miami's offense that, from
two minutes left in the first period to five minutes into the third, Miami
didn't have a single shot on goal. That's twenty-seven minutes. Michigan
goalie Steve Shields should have brought a book onto the ice with him.
When Berenson was asked how long it's been since there was a shotless
period, he shrugged and said, "I don't know if there's been a last time."
Saturday night's game seemed like an anti-climax compared to Friday.
Michigan didn't play as solid a game, but they still crushed the Redskins, 9-
3. With the exception of a power-play goal by Oliver, the veteran
Wolverines dominated the ice. Senior Don Stone had his first goal and his
first hat trick of the season, and Felsner put two more in the net.
Shields, who played well Friday, was replaced in the goal by senior Tim
Keough. Keough seemed uneasy at first, letting the Redskins take a 2-0
lead. But a three-on-five shorthanded goal by sophomore Chris Tamer,
' icers dominate
Redskins in every way
seemed to lift the team's spirits.
The only question mark for the Wolverines is who will be the regular
starting goalie. Before the season, Berenson seemed to favor rookie Chris
Gordon. That didn't seem to be the case, though, as Shields and Keough
split the chores Friday and Saturday.
Miami coach George Gwozdecky seemed to be in the dark on his team's
inability to do anything against the Wolverines.
"Our upperclassmen did zero," he said. "We couldn't get out of our zone,
our offense couldn't get going - they were non-existent. Call it a lack of
poise, call it a lack of leadership, call it whatever you want."
What the Wolverines call it is a sweep, and a great start for the season.
the team can keep this level of play consistent, the goalie controversy wi
be nonexistent. Who's going to care who's in the goal if the opposing team
never takes a shot?

Ouimet and Patrick Neaton created a
five-on-three power-play advantage.
The opportunity was wasted when
Wolverine Chris Tamer connected
with the net on a pass from Don
Stone, who also netted a hat trick to
contribute to the victory.
After the score, Miami's earlier
difficulties reappeared for the remain-
der of the game.
But the Redskins' problems
should not undermine the ability
shown by the Wolverines in their
season debut. With expectations for
this year running high, Michigan
failed to disappoint last weekend.
Questions surrounding the abun-
dance of team youth, particularly at
goaltender, were answered with an
exclamation. Michigan's first five
goals of Friday night were made by
first-year players, putting to rest
doubts about their ability to adjust
to collegiate hockey.
"It's good for our freshmen to
break that bubble," Berenson said,
"and get the feeling that the nets are
the same size in this league."
Though a permanent player be-
tween the pipes has yet to be estab-
lished, both frosh Steve Shields and
junior Tim Keough got a chance to
provetheir worth, allowing only one
and three goals respectively.
"I was pretty nervous to start, but
then the defense took over and I re-
laxed the rest of the game," Shields
said. "It was good to get a win t
start the year."

Miami was only able to muster 24
shots on goal in the series, 56 less
than the Wolverines.
