After Denny Felsner put the
Wolverines up 1-0 Friday, Ferris
stormed back with two third period
goals in three minutes to go up 2-1.
Then, with two minutes 36
seconds left in regulation, Ferris
rightwinger Justin LaFayette was
called for a five minute 'drawing
blood' roughing penalty involving
first-year Michigan defender Aaron
Ward. The ensuing power play set
up a David Oliver goal with less
than two minutes remaining that
sent the game into overtime.
"I can't find a drawing blood
penalty in the college rule book,"
said Ferris coach Bob Mancini, "but
I'm sure that, if the referee called it,
it must be in there somewhere."
The nightmare 'for Mancini
wasn't over, however, as Felsner
used the remaining time on the
penalty to score the game winner 17
seconds into overtime.
"It was a great goal," Berenson
said, "a great individual effort. You
could see what he wanted to do; he
came right out and jammed it in. It
was a great Denny Felsner goal, and
you can't coach that."
"I saw the defense cut to the left
and that's when I decided to go to the
net," Felsner said. "Those are tough
goals to cover because I wasilying."
The Wolverines had 38 shots on
goal Friday, compared to only 16 by
the Bulldogs. In the second period
alone, the Bulldogs were forced to
turn away 17 Michigan attempts.

35 saves on the evening.

Officials lose control,

The roar of the crowd was thunderous in Yost Ice Arena, but it was
almost drowned out by the sound of bodies slamming into the boards,
hitting the ice, and getting slapped with sticks.
When the Michigan players hit the ice against Ferris State Friday
night, they literally hit the ice. The game was filled to the brim with
bumps and grinds, but almost void of penalties. The referees allowed the
players to take control of the game, and may have let them go a bit too
"The referee didn't call anything, he was just letting us play,"
Michigan's Denny Felsner said. "That's good in some ways, but some
people are going to get hurt out there. It was kind of brutal at times."
On one occasion late in the third period, one of the many minor
skirmishes of the matchup turned major. After a bump from Wolverine
defender Aaron Ward, Ferris State's leftwinger Justin Lafayette proceeded
to jab his stick into Ward's neck.
The incident resulted in a two minute cross checking until Ward
motioned to the referee and showed him the blood covering his neck.
Moments later, Lafayette was brandished with a five minute 'drawing
blood' penalty. Ward received several stitches after the game.
"They had to call that one," Wolverine sophomore defender Chris
Tamer said. "It was a blatant cross-check, so he had to call that one and
It was this penalty that left the Wolverines with a five-on-four player
advantage that allowed them to tally two goals in just over two minutes,
one in overtime, to capture the victory.
Some feel that, for the most part, the play in college hockey should
go relatively unchecked by the referees.
They feel that the game then becomes more exciting and more
And it is true that Friday's game was one of the more exciting
played in Yost this year. But, while referees shouldn't penalize players
for every little bump or shove, they do have a responsibility to control
obvious attempts to harm or intimidate an opposing player.
"I thought some penalties should have been called as the game went
on," Michigan coach Red Berenson said. "Both teams were taking
liberties, but, on the other hand, sometimes if you let the teams play
they keep in control, but I think in this game you needed to keep your
eye on blatant, obvious penalties."
Though contact for the most part went unchecked, some of the few
calls were dubious if anything. Of the nine penalties called on Friday,
both Ferris and Michigan got the short end of the stick on a few
occasions. The Bulldogs had a Daniel Chaput roughing penalty and a
Dave Karpa hooking penalty during the first and second periods
respectively that were questionable calls at best compared with the trend
of contact which the game had been following.
Late in the third period, Wolverine goalie Steve Shields skated
forward from the net in order to shield the goal from an oncoming Ferris
offense. He was charged with tripping as he put his stick out to push
away the puck and, in turn, pushed away the feet of a Bulldog.
"I was surprised. He (Shields) did not seem to have a penalty,"
Berenson said. "I thought he came out to play the puck."
seconds left in the second period
when Ferris center Aaron Asp
slipped the puck past Shields. The
goal gave Ferris a 3-2 lead they
would never relinquish.
"That last five second goal was a
very big goal," Berenson said. "It
gave them the momentum and the
lead. We were never able to get that
goal back. First and last minute
goals are always very big."
Shields gave up four goals on
ten Bulldog attempts and was pulled
by Berenson in favor of senior Tim

dominated the game, but was
frustrated by the hot goaltending of
Pat Mazzoli. The Wolverines had 51
shots on goal Saturday while Ferris
had just 17, seven of which made it
into the net.
"The sad thing is that we got the
shots," said Berenson. "We have to
capitalize on those scoring
opportunities. They didn't give up a
lot. We can't make the opposing
goalie look like a star every time we
Mazzoli chalked up 48 saves and
was the deciding factor in the game.
"We're getting very good goal-
tending," Mancini said. "Felicio and
Mazzoli are two very good goalies

like nothing better than to have one
have a great game Friday and one to
have a great game Saturday."
