Michigan defense as

Impressive
By John Loroi
Daily Sports Writer
The crowd at Yost Ice Arena looked
pretty clueless at 8:03 of the third period
in the Wolverines' 9-3 win over Illinois-
Chicago Friday night. That's because they
had no idea how to react to an opponent
actually scoring a goal.
The Flames snapped Michigan's 126-
minute streak without allowing a goal
when Illinois-Chicago freshman Chuck
Mindel flipped in a rebound during a
flurry in front of Michigan netminder
Marty Turco.

iaye of t e Week
MIchigan junior forward Jason
Botteril had 10 points in the
Wolverines' sweep of Illinois-Chicago
this weekend. Friday he had two
goals and two assists Saturday he
scored four goals and two assists,.
including three power play goals.
This marked the third-straight week
a Michigan player won the award.

this weekend. In fact, Michigan's defen-
sive dominance was so strong that.
Berenson even put third-string goalie
Greg Daddario into the game in the third
period Saturday.
That may just seem like a classy move
by Berenson, but, heck, the first-year
walk-on goaltender has a 0.00 goals
against average in two appearances.
HE SHOOTS, HE SCORES ... AGAIN: With
all the pucks hitting the back ofthe net this
weekend, it would be hard to miss the
accomplishmentsofJason Botterill. The
junior scored 10 points on the weekend,
but lost in the fray were his careerachieve-
ments. He scored his 100th career point
and notched his 50th career goal against
the Flames. Botterill's linemate Brendan
Morrison also tallied his 100th assist.
MONKEY IN THE MIDDLE: Part of the
reason Michigan has blown away their
opponents recently has to do with their
success in the middle of games. In their
last three contests, the Wolverines have
scored 16 goals in the second period
including 10 during the middle period
against Illinois-Chicago.
"We really put both games away in the
second period," Berenson said. "It's not
like I'm giving some huge motivational
speech (during the intermission, it's just
some little adjustments."
HIT THE SHOWERS: Michigan's offen-
sive surge forced Illinois-Chicago coach
Larry Pedrie to yank netminder Adam
Lord in the second period of both games.
This year, the Wolverines have be-
come pretty accustomed to seeing back-
ups between the pipes. Michigan has sent
starting goalies to the bench early in 10
games this season,including fourstraight.

been coming up big as well. Michigan has
allowed more than three goals in a game
only four times this season.
Turco's goals-against average is drop-
ping as the weeks roll by as well, hovering
around 2.00 after the weekend sweep.
"I really like the way Marty's playing
right now," Michigan coach Red
Berenson said. "But we're playing well
defensively, with the exception of the
third period Friday night. But, other than
that, you can't ask for much more from
your defensemen."
Berenson was able to play all eight
defenders he keeps on the active roster

Michigan's Matt Herr was tightly checked this past weekend, just like he was against the Spartans Nov. 28.

they took eleven penalties on the week-.
end. The Wolverines took advantage of
Illinois-Chicago's mistakes, cashing in
on all three power play opportunities Fri-
day and converting 5-of-8 Saturday-
good for 73 percent in the series.
Meanwhile, the Michigan penalty-kill-
ing team held the Flames scoreless in nine
opportunities. Wolverine John Madden,
who leads the CCHA in shorthanded
scores with seven, scored Michigan's only
shorthandedgoal intheseries Friday night.
Already facing a 5-on-3 disadvantage
after an elbowing call to Matt Herr and a
five-minute-majorto Blake Sloan, Pedrie
pulled Lord for a sixth attacker. The
Wolverines killed off a minute of the 6-
on-3 when Madden dug the puck off the
boards, skated around an Illinois-Chi-
cago defenseman and scored into the
empty net from his own blue line.
"This weekend was a good confidence
booster, not only for the top lines, but for
everybody," Botterill said. "Whoever
came in the lineup were dominate players
out there. This is the time we've got to
start building momentum."
Michigan scored three goals in three
minutes to start off the scoring Friday.
Morrison,'who had two goals and five
assists against the Flames, started the
offensive onslaught, netting his 14th goal
of the season. Freshman Sean Ritchlin
followed, knocking in a rebound of Harold
Schock's slap shot fromthe point. Botterill
made it 3-0 two minutes later tapping a

beautiful pass from Kevin Hilton into an
open net.
Berenzweig, Herr and Madden scored
goals in the second, chasing Lord from
the game, forcing Pedrie to insert junior
Paul Spencer between the pipes.
Winless in four starts, Spencer didn't
fare too much better than Lord in the third
period. Bobby Hayes and Botterill both
scored to put the Wolverines up by eight
five minutes into the third. Illinois-Chi-
cago scored three goals in the next min-
utes before Dale Rominski knocked two
Flames to the ice with one check, allow-
ing Clark to skate in alone on Spencer for
Michigan's final tally.
"The first period, Chicago played re-
ally well," Berenson said, "The second
period we put some pressure on them
early, scored early and really got some
serious momentum and really dominated
the period."
Saturday, the Flames held Michigan
scoreless for the first half of the opening
period, but didn't have much luck after
that. Bill Muckalt banged in the Wolver-
ines first goal with nine minutes left in the
first. Michigan then netted four straight
goals in the second period, with scores
from Hilton, Morrison, Mike Legg and
Botterill.
Botterill scored a power-play goal five
minutes into the third period for the hat
trick and scored his fourth of the night off
a spectacular pass from Morrison, who
has lying on his back after a defenseman.
wrestled him to the ice. Madden closed
out the scoring a minute later with his
15th of the season.

By Danielle Rumore
Daily Sports Writer
The Illinois-Chicago hockey team
was not red-hot or on fire this week-
end as its nickname suggests.
The Flames visited Yost Ice Arena
for a weekend series with the third-
ranked Wolverines. Michigan man-
aged to reduce the Flames to a mere
flicker in its 9-3 and 9-1 back-to-back
victories.
Illinois-Chicago (4-12-1 CCHA, 7-
13-3 overall) is not the only team that
has been left gasping for air after a
recent match up with the Michigan
(14-3-0,19-4-0) squad.
In its past six games, Michigan has
outscored its opponents by a com-
bined total of 50-9, with a 6.8-goal
average margin of victory
Despite the two victories this week-
end, the offensive-minded Wolver-
ines were disappointed after giving
up three third-period goals in game
one.
"The third period was not a great
period because it was a little sloppy,"
Michigan coach Red Berenson said.
"We don't like that we gave up three
(goals). Our younger kids better get
the message that we don't play like
that at Michigan."
Five Wolverines are currently in
double-figures for goals scored while
eight have recorded 10 or more as-
sists.
Players like Brendan Morrison, Ja-
son Botterill and Kevin Hilton have
stepped up their play and stolen some
of the spotlight recently. This week-
end Morrison and Hilton scored a

combined three goals and 10 assists.
Botterill also had a big weekend,
dumping in six goals, including four
in Saturday night's game, and four
assists.
Yet, most of the scoring has been
evenly balanced and spread over a
great number of players, a situation
that pleases Berenson.
"our younger
kids better get the
message that we
don't play like that
at Michigan
- Red Berenson
Michigan hockey coach, on
giving up three goals in a
game against Illinois-Chicago
Friday night
"There is not just one person scor-
ing," Berenson said. "It seems that
since the Great Lakes Invitational,
Morrison has made a major impact
and Botterill has picked up the slack,
yet we're getting leadership and bal-
anced scoring (across the board)."
In the first game this weekend, eight
different Wolverines scored in the 9-
3 victory while six different players
scored in the 9-1 victory.
In the first game of the GLI Dec.
29-30, five different Wolverines
scored in the 6-1 victory and three

different players scored in the 3-1 win
in the championship game. Seven dif-
ferent players scored in the 10-3 win
over Ferris State while nine different
players scored in the 13-0 walloping
of Miami (Ohio), both earlier this
month.
The scoring has been shared by all
of the forwards and a few defensemen
and has not been restricted to tl
veterans on the squad.
Freshman right wing Justin Clark
became the last forward to make his
mark in the goals-scored column after
notching the first ofhis college career
Friday evening.
Clark scored his power play goal one
a breakaway resulting from a Michi-
gan and Illinois-Chicago player colli-,-
sion.
Clark drilled it past Flames' goalie
Paul Spencer at 16:07 of the thO
period in game one,
"(Scoring the goal) is a pretty big
monkey off my back," Clark said. 'I
thought a lot about it, so it was a huge
relief."
Freshman defenseman Bubba
Berenzweig also recorded his first goal
of the season in the second stanza of
game one.
Berenzweig's lack of scoring pro-
duction thus far may be a result @
transforming into a pure defenseman
at the college level.
"It's a relief (to have scored),"
Berenzweig said. "I've always been a
goal scorer until I got here. Over the
past few weeks, I learned to accept
the fact that I am here to play de-
fense."

FORWARDS
Continued from Page 11B
"It doesn't matter," Hilton says. "I
haven't gotten (attention) since I've
been here, so it's not going to affect the
way I play or anything."
It certainly hasn't. He has racked up
four assists in a game four times this
season, was named to the College
Hockey All-Showcase Team for his
performance in November, and led the
offense while Morrison sat out hurt for
the season's first six games.
Few outside the team noticed Hilton's
impact while Morrison was out. Most
fans were too concerned with
Morrison's impending return to realize
that Hilton, a senior, was helping carry
the club.
To make things worse, a week after
Morrison returned, Hilton had his gold
practice jersey taken away and had to
wear the second line's purple. Though
there are no "No. 1"or"No. 2" lines, the
symbolism was apparent-Hilton may
be an outstanding senior, but Morrison
is the golden boy.
What was your name again?
"It's expected that (Morrison) will
get the attention," Hilton says. "He led
the nation in points last year. It was only

playing the way he's capable of.
"I consider him a good friend. So it
doesn't bother me."
Muckalt isn't worrying about it ei-
ther:
"I knew that when I came here there
would be a lot of talent to compete
with;" Muckalt says. "That's why you
come to Michigan."
He competed well last season.
Muckalt, now a sophomore, had an ex-
cellent freshman campaign, scoring 19
goals and 18 assists for 37 points and
being a unanimous selection to the
CCHA All-Rookie Team.
"Coach (Berenson) told me that I've
got a chance to be a good player here,"
Muckalt says. "He told me to work hard
like I did last year. I've been getting
points, but maybe I was coasting a bit. I'm
working hard now, and things are going
well. I just want the team to do well."
It sounds so prepared, all this talk of
the team first, Either these guys are
good actors trained by their coaches, or
their real feelings are being suppressed.
If it were a different situation that might
be true. But, in Michigan's case, the
past makes it easy to believe they are
sincere.
"There are more important things to
think about," Hilton says.
Hilton admits he sometimes stays up
S i rht thinlkin bhi thnc hinc

those dreams he had when he came to
Michigan. He thinks about the goalhL
scored against Maine in last season
NCAA semifinal and asks himself why
he didn't score two.
Muckalt asks similar questions about
himself.
"I've got a lot to prove," he says. "-I
don't feel like I've done that much. And
I won't feel like I have until we win a
national title."
So that's it. Hilton and Muckalt don't
care if they aren't in the news becau
that isn't the kind of attention they
seeking.
"This year we know what we have to
do," Hilton says. "We know what the
No. 1 thing everyone thinks about is."
Any collection of talent like
Michigan's is begging for ego trouble.
However, the searing pain of last year's
failure is more than enough to melt
loaded agendas together in pursuit of a
higher goal.
"Personal sacrifice is a small price
pay for a national title," Muckalt says;.
Hilton and Muckalt don't care much
ifkids can't recognize them after games,
They know what would unmask thei
more than any feature article or inter-
view.

name again?" in April -from the cham-
