Michigan Hockey
Veteran Wolverines on quest for
* eighth national championship

by Brett Forrest
and Tim Rardin
Daily Hockey Writers
The Michigan hockey team
reached the NCAA semifinals for
the second straight year with a 4-3
overtime victory over Wisconsin
Saturday. Heading into Milwaukee,
the Wolverines have already made
this season one to remember.
With the victory over the Bad-
gers, Michigan has now reached the
30-victory plateau three straight sea-
sons. Michigan coach Red Berenson
also earned his 200th victory at
Michigan against Ohio State March
6. Berenson is only the third
Wolverine coach to achieve this feat.
The Wolverines, who have been
ranked No. 2 in the country for most
of the season, also won their fifth
straight Great Lakes Invitational
with an 8-3 victory over Northern
Michigan at Joe Louis Arena Dec.
27. (top right)
Goaltender Steve Shields won
the CCHA's Best Goaltender
Award, and has a goals against aver-
age of 2.17 so far this season.
(center) Shields and defenseman Pat
O Neaton were named to the CCHA
first team this season.

Senior left wing Dave Roberts,
who earned a spot on the CCHA
second team along with junior David
Oliver, leads the team in points (64),
and scored the overtime game-win-
ner against Wisconsin. (center left)
The Michigan defense gives up
an average of 25 shots per game and
the team leads the nation in goals
against average (2.32). (second from
However, the Wolverines were
again thwarted by Lake Superior in
the CCHA playoffs, losing to the
Lakers, 5-3, in the league semifinals
March 20. (bottom)
This year's scoring attack is de-
cidedly more balanced than last
year's, when Denny Felsner led the
team with 94 points. Five players
boast 50 points or more, and two
others have more than 40 on the sea-
son, as the Wolverines were first in
the league and are second in the na-
tion in goals per game (6.02) In ad-
dition, five players have scored at
least 20 goals, and seven different
players were named CCHA Players
of the Week.
The Wolverines have improved
their NCAA tournament showing in
the last two years, making it to the

quarterfinal round in 1991, and the
semifinals last year. This year,
Michigan will face Maine, who has
lost just once in 43 games this sea-
son, in the semis Thursday.
Though Michigan has the most ti-
tles in the history of the NCAA
hockey championships, the Wolver-
ines have not won since 1964.
Michigan last reached the final game
in 1977.
