own with the Wolverines both
Friday and Saturday. Both teams ex-
changed blows which reverberated
throughout Goggin Arena, and pro-
vided excitement for the crowd.
However, Michigan's speed and size
were too much for Miami, particu-
larly when the teams were not both
skating at full strength.
Friday, Denny Felsner opened the
scoring with a Gus Macker goal (3-
on-3). Brian Wiseman, in a 4-on-4
situation, grabbed a loose puck,
faked out the Redskin defenders and
bested goalie Mark Michaud for
Michigan's second score.
Redskin Dan Carter beat goalie
Steve Shields for Miami's only
goal, after which defenseman Aaron
Ward, in yet another 4-on-4
situation, countered with a shot
from the point that was partially
blocked but still jumped over
Despite the respect due a first-
place team, the outcome of the game
was anticipated by the Wolverines.
"Well, they came out tough,"
David Oliver said. "We knew it
would be a battle, but we came out
and outworked them and the result
showed on the scoreboard."
Ward, who had one goal and
three assists for the weekend, was a
little less complimentary of the
"The goaltending was a little
shaky. They haven't played anybody
who was really good," he said. "We
had to take away the idea that they
thought they were really good, and
they realized that in the second
period when we started skating
While Michigan followed the
first period with identical three-
goal outbursts in the second and
third periods Friday, it was the play
in the second period which presented
a microcosm of the weekend's
In the second, the Redskins held
the Wolverines in check for nearly
17 minutes, but could not capitalize
on their own opportunities because
Shields stopped all their shots.
"Shields made some big saves
that kept the score down," Mich-
igan coach Red Berenson said.
Another representative theme
evident in the second period was the
Wolverines squandering chances but
using their tremendous speed advan-
tage to overcome Miami.
'We had to take away
the idea that they
thought they were
"They are a very strong, fast,
physical team," Gwozdecky said.
"After they scored (the fourth
goal), boom, the next shift they
scored again. .Our mental level
dropped a lot."
Saturday night, the Redskins
showed much more resolve, result-
ing in a 1-1 score after one period
and a 5-4 Michigan lead after two.
In the second period with the
score still 2-2, Wolverine Mike
Knuble picked up the rebound from
Cam Stewart to score the next
Wolverine goal. Felsner and David
Roberts followed with power-play
goals, apparently icing the game.
However, the Redskins did not
quit. Led by defenseman Joe Cook,
who scored his second power-play
goal of the night on a rebound,
Miami pulled to 5-4.
"Last night we were just too hy-
per," Cook said. "Tonight we play-
ed a lot better game, as the score
Wolverine goalie Chris Gordon
had a lot to do with the final score.
Replacing Steve Shields, who was
suffering from a nagging pulled
stomach muscle, Gordon stopped all
seven shots he faced.
"I thought the key to the game
was the third period when Gordon
came in and stopped us," Gwoz-
OXFORD - My high school soccer coach called it "twisting the
knife." As in, "Team, once you plunge the knife, you can't pull it out.
You've got to twist the knife." The Wolverines twice dug the blade into
Miami, once Friday and again Saturday. Michigan knocked the Redskins
down, and wouldn't let them up. The Wolverines exhibited the drive in-
lrinsic in a winner.
Michigan is not merely a good or great team. It is a team that knows
very well how to win games.
Friday, with Michigan leading, 3-1, and Miami holding close, the
Wolverines exploded for three goals in 2:47 to close the second period.
or the remainder of the game, the Redskins appeared slightly flatter
than the state of Nebraska. The Redskins were trying to open the door,
but Michigan slammed it shut, and got Miami's fingers caught in the
Saturday, a similar situation arose. With the score tied, 2-2, goals
from Mike Knuble, Denny Felsner and David Roberts elevated Michigan
to a 5-2 advantage. Apparently embarrassed by its social faux pas from
the night before, host Miami decided to offer competition for the
remainder of the match.
.The Redskins struck twice to close the period, and suddenly, at 5-4,
Michigan had a close game on its hands.
0 "They had us reeling from time to time," Michigan coach Red Beren-
This was one of those times.
The Redskins finally brought the capacity crowd into the game, Mi-
ami had momentum, and because Michigan goalkeeper Steve Shields had
suffered a stomach muscle pull, Berenson had to throw Chris Gordon
into the midst of a tight match.
"In the third period, we were where we wanted to be," Miami coach
George Gwozdecky admitted.
But Michigan responded with two goals and solid defense to win, 7-4.
This type of response will take Michigan far - being certain of vic-
tory, and knowing what is necessary to obtain it. Miami doesn't have that
knowledge. A team's memory on how to win games tends to become a
little fuzzy when it only wins five times in a season, as the Redskins did
But Miami is improving. It came into the series with a five-game
winning streak, and was ready to take on Michigan.
"We feel it is payback time this time around," Miami defenseman
Bobby Marshall said earlier in the week. But Michigan cane into town,
and showed Miami what a winning team is all about.
"For them to split with Michigan would have been a fantastic suc-
ess," Helber said. "For us to split would have been a very big disap-

OXFORD - When Michigan battles Miami
of Ohio in hockey, Wolverine center Mark
Ouimet has a different type of confrontation.
His brother, Terry Ouimet, plays for the
"Well, I played against him last year, too,"
Mark Ouimet said. "I don't really like it. I keep
an eye on him to make sure no one hits him and I
eally can't fully concentrate on the game as
well I could."
The brothers' mixed feeling were pale in
comparison with Dani Ouimet, their mother.
"I have to remain neutral, I kind of wished
they would have split the games," she said.
"When they are both out there I am kind of
The two brothers did play on a junior team
together, but never played well together on the
ame line. However, they were both scouted by
olverine coach Red Berenson.
"I saw (Terry) play. I liked him ... he was
good," Berenson said. "I think they both were
centers when we saw them. We only took one
center that year. We really liked Mark's style
and he was a year younger."
BACK IN'THE RING: Wolverine defense-
,"man Chris Tamer was involved in a fracas with
Redskin Steve Wilson at the 18:09 mark of the
second period. The fight resulted in game sus-
pensions for Tamer and Wilson.
"I was disappointed with the call," Tamer
said. "But it's at the discretion of the referee and
I can live with it."
Niether player dropped his gloves, usually
the accepted rule for disqualifications.
SHHH. WE'RE WATCHING A HOCKEY
GAME: Despite a crowd numbering 800 over ca-
pacity, and a conference rival in town, the Gog-
gin Arena faithful did their best impersonation
of the Crisler Arena partisans. The Redskin fans
participated in no cheers, rarely taunted the vis-
iting Wolverines, and generally remained very
well-behaved. In fact, the biggest uproar was re-
served for the occasional updates of nearby Ta-
lawanda High School's football playoff game.
RECORD CROWD?: The Goggin arena
record crowd of 3,248 set Nov. 21, 1988 is safe.
Although capacity is 2,200, Miami can no longer
count past 3,050, without being at risk from the
A Goggin Arena official, who wished to re-
main nameless, said that there were over 3,400
people in attendance Friday. The standing room
only crowd lined up three and four people deep
from one blue line, around the goal and to the
other blue line on both ends of the rink. The
crowd of 3,050, was the same for both nights and
are the sixth and seventh highest crowds.
THE END OF THE LINE: After an amazing
showing last weekend against Minnesota last
weekend, the line of Denny Felsner, Brian
Wiseman, and David Oliver had no goals in
which they all contributed a point. Also,
Oliver's personal goal streak against Miami
ended at five games.
FROSH FIRSTS: Rookies Ron Sacka and
Mike Knuble racked up their first career goals
for Michigan. Sacka's shorthanded tally came at
the 11:07 mark in the third period of Friday's
contest. After knocking the puck away from
Redskin Trent Eigner at the Michigan blue
line, the Brooklyn, Mich., native skated in on
goaltender Mark Michaud and beat him to the
Knuble put the Wolverines ahead to stay Sat-
urday night when he fired a rebound past backup
netminder Richard Shulmistra.
GOODBYE, GILBERT: Michigan left
wing Denny Felsner continued his assault on
the record books. With his three goals this
weekend, Felsner broke his tie with Gilbert Bur-
ford for Michigan career goal total, and moved
into third place with 106 goals.
On the career points chart, Felsner's linemate
David Roberts brought his total to 131 and a
tie for 30th with John Matchefts. Six points
ahead in 27th is Berenson.
