lead to records
By Mark Snyder
Daily Sports Writer
DETROIT - The organizers of the
College Hockey Showcase hoped for a
successful weekend for all four teams
competing in it.
And it was Michigan which left smil-
ing the most.
Both Bill Muckalt and Brendan
Morrison were named to the All-
Showcase team. Morrison added the
Showcase MVP honor to his long list of
collegiate accolades. Jason Botterill
recorded three goals to assume the
career Showcase record.
And most important for the team,
Michigan came away from the weekend
with two victories.
The Showcase is not just another
weekend series for any of the players -
especially those who have been around
since its inception.
"There's a lot of pride on the line this
weekend," Botterill said. "Not only for
the CCHA but for Michigan."
That pride translated into effective
hockey for the Wolverines. In a 4-3
overtime victory Friday against
Minnesota, Michigan showed its ability
to win close games.
That wasn't necessary Saturday
Leading 4-1 after one period and 7-3
after two, Michigan was in an unfamil-
1 iar position.
"We're not used to being here and
having a big lead," Michigan coach Red
Berenson said. "When you look at most
of the games we've been in, they've
been close. We got into a few bad habits
and let up a bit. Fortunately, we had a
The eight-goal total was Michigan's
top goal output against a Division I
opponent this season.
Three of those goals came off the
stick of Muckalt, who credited his team-
"I'm glad (the goals) went in. I was
just putting it on net and it was going in
for me,' he said. "Brendan (Morrison)
and (Michigan forward Matt Herr)
made some good passes, and (I was)
going wide and driving to the net."
While Michigan was setting a
Showcase record with 12 team goals in
the two games, the future of the exhibi-
tion was being decided.
With the Showcase in its last year of
a four-year contract, representatives
from all four schools met and decided to
continue the tournament.
While no details were ironed out on
the specifics of sites or format, the con-
sensus was that the event must go on.
Despite disappointing attendance,
Berenson was pleased with the four-
year run of the existing Showcase.
"We were a little disappointed in the
crowds and the numbers, and that's
something the administrators will have
to talk about," he said.
"There was a I t of dialogue about the
Showcase. The o ly thing I can tell you
for sure is that there is a strong feeling
of agreement in the spirit of this tourna-
ment. This will continue."
This was the first time in the four sea-
sons that Michigan has won both of its
games at the Showcase. That dominance
is reflected in the record book.
Seniors Morrison and Botterill closed
out their Showcase careers tied for the
points record at 15, and Botterill is tops
in the record book with seven goals. But
when it comes to records, Botterill is
more than willing to share the spotlight.
"It's a nice stat to have, and I'm trying
to help out the team. Our team looks at .
these as big games."

game at Lake Superior. He turned away
27 of the Gophers' 30 attempts.
Saturday, Michigan trounced the
Badgers 8-4 in a game that was not as
close as the score indicated.
Michigan's power play overwhelmed
Wisconsin as the Wolverines bolted to a
4-1 lead at the end of the first period.
Berenson reverted to the initial
power-play unit and the results were

having converted on every power-play
opportunity and killing ott its lone
"We tried a lot of different combina-
tions and mixed things up (in the past
few weeks)," Michigan right wing Bill
Muckalt said. "When you get put back
with the guys you've been with, you
start to feel comfortable."
Muckalt netted two of the scores in
the period as Michigan came out firing.

Daubenspeck faced 18 shots in the peri-
od, and it was downhill from there for

Michigan didn't let up. Assistant -cap-

seconds into the period gave Michigan
its fourth power-play goal of the game.
Botterill scored his second goal

Berenson agreed that the power play
was the overriding factor in the v\ictory.
"We needed our power play t

that's discouraging for another team.
Our power play was the difference in
the game, no question."
