Michigan; however, the Wolverines
can't always rely on that line - es-
pecially Felsner - to carry the
whole team.
"That line is so hard to match up
with," Ohio State coach Jerry Welsh
said. "Whenever they need it, it
seems like one of those guys comes
up with the big play."
That line teamed up for the final
two Michigan tallies. With the
Wolverines trailing, 2-1, late in the
second, Michigan was on the power
play. With a draw outside the
Michigan blueline, Wiseman drew

the faceoff forward to a streaking
Felsner. Felsner took the puck, beat
Buckeye defender Tim Green, and
had a breakaway against OSU goalie
Mike Bales. Felsner stickhandled
past Bales and put the puck into the
empty net.
"We saw a mistake in their de-
fense, and Denny knew what to do,"
Wiseman said. "I just put the puck
out there and Denny made a great
individual effort."
However, for the Wolverines to
succeed in the postseason, they can't
rely on individual plays. Instead,
they will need solid team play for 60
minutes. That has not been evident,
except for the series against Lake
Superior earlier this month.

we're coming off a tough loss to
Michigan State, so we need the vic-
tory - but so does Minnesota."
Fisher realizes his team lost a
good opportunity Saturday night to
move up in the standings.
"We knew it was gonna be a tight
ballgame," Fisher said. "We didn't
make the plays, we didn't catch the
breaks, we didn't have what it takes
to win the game down the stretch."
Despite the loss to Illinois, the
Gophers are performing beyond ex-
pectations and are the surprise club
of the Big Ten, holding down the
fourth spot in the conference.
"We're really excited about the
way we have played up to this
point," Gopher coach Clem Haskins
said. "You are always looking for
improvement both offensively and
defensively, but we're pleased with
our record up to now."
Minnesota (7-5, 15-10) has been

Michigan game), but he has played
as well, if not better, than he played
that evening."
Wolverine frosh Chris Webber,
who lived two houses from Lenard
in Detroit, is eager to welcome his
neighbor's club to Ann Arbor.
"I just wanna beat them because
they have a better record than us,
and they beat us already," Webber

least. The Gophers are 1-23 in Ann
Arbor since Crisler opened 25 years
ago. Their one and only victory was
a61-50 triumph in 1982.
"If you look at the players
Michigan has had over the years,
that's the reason we haven't won
many games there," Haskins said.
"They've had great players, great
fans, great coaching. But we don't
worry about the past."
One of the keys for the
Wolverines, said Fisher, will be lim-
iting Minnesota's opportunities at
the free throw line. Minnesota took
45 free tosses in that Jan. 11 contest,
scoring only six field goals in the
second half.
"We've got to defend without
fouling," Fisher said.
Fisher said he has not decided on
his starting lineup but is "leaning
toward" starting the five rookies
once again.
