Schock gives Notre
Dame cold shoulder
By Mark Snyder

Daily Sports Writers
EAST LANSING - Neither player
involved thought the hit was anything
out of the ordinary.
Unfortunately, for Michigan defense-
man Harold Schock, the officials didn't
see it through his eyes.
Midway through the second period
against Notre Dame on Friday, Schock
leaned in with his shoulder and crushed
into the boards. 13'
crumpled to the ice. Notebook
While he wasn't
injured, Schock did
not get off lightly.
Immediately, he was
slapped with a five-
minute major penalty for hitting from
behind. He also received a game mis-
conduct - an automatic ejection from
Schock initially asked the official
whether he would be allowed to play the
following night at Michigan State. The
referee said he would - if Schock left
the ice without further incident. The
defenseman bit his tongue and vented
his frustration by cracking his stick
against the wall as he left the ice.
Dhadphale did not feel Schock
intended to hurt him.
"I turned, and he hit me," he said. "It's
my fault, though, I shouldn't have
turned (away) like that."
Schock also saw nothing wrong with
"I definitely don't think the penalty
deserved a major," Schock said. "It
looked a lot worse than it was. I was
going to bump him off the puck. I'd do
the same thing if the situation came up
The penalty didn't end up hurting
Michigan too much. It killed off most of
the shorthanded time, allowing only one
goal in the five-minute span.
As for Dhadphale, he returned to the
game to record a goal and an assist,
showing no ill-effects of Schock's

last-minute, game-winning goal by
Michigan State's Bryan Adams ended
the Wolverines' quest to set the school
record for consecutive victories.
Michigan tied the record of 15 with its
6-3 win over Notre Dame the previous
Ironically, it was Michigan State that
ended the winning streak that estab-

Overall, the Spartans have played
well against the nation's top teams.
Since 1981, Michigan State has a record
of 11-6-1 when playing the NCAA
champions from the year before.
SPECTACULAR SPECIAL TEAMS:
Michigan came into Saturday's game
13-of-41 on the power play (31.7 per-
cent), while Michigan State came in
with a remarkable penalty-killing per-
centage of 94.1. For the season, the
Spartans had killed off 32-of-34 power
When the two teams locked horns, it
was the Spartans who won the battle
early, killing off the Wolverines' first
four man-advantages of the game.
On the fifth, early in the third period,
Matt Herr ended the Spartans' streak of
20 straight successful penalty kills with
Michigan's only power-play goal of the
"We had our chances (on the power
play), and they weren't going in,"
Berenson said. "But they're a good
penalty-killing team, just like we are."
The Michigan State hockey team caught up to Brendan Morrison and the rest of the Wolverines on Saturday, winning, 54.

EAST LANSING - Michigan State's Tony Tuzzolino
couldn't contain himself
But after Michigan State came away with a thrilling 5-4 vic-
tory over the No. 1 Michigan hockey team Saturday night -
in front of the largest crowd at Munn Ice Arena in seven years
- who can blame him?
The Spartans had just beaten the Wolverines for the first
time in the past five tries. Once again,
Michigan State had prevented
Michigan from winning its 16th con-
secutive game, a mark that would
have broken the school record. The
Spartans also stopped the Wolverines' iX
last 15-game streak in 1990-91. And,
Michigan State had beaten its intra-
state rival on its home ice.
There was cause for jubilation.
Music was blaring outside the
Spartans' lockerroom. Even parents of
the players were slapping each other f
five. And there was Tuzzolino, in the
middle of it all, being interviewed by a local television station.
A few questions into the interview, players shouted, "Way to
go, Tuzz," and then shouts of elation streamed out of the lock-
Tuzzolino, who scored a goal and had an assist on the game-
winning goal, responded with a yelp of his own. It was a
release of emotion that was not to be bottled up after this game.
There was no way he would hold in his emotions after an
intense, down-to-the-wire victory. There was no reason to.
"It was unbelievable" Tuzzolino said. "The fans were in it.
We were in it. It was a great game to watch even when you are
not playing in the game."
It sure was. Even in the waning moments of the game with
the score tied at four, you had the feeling that somebody was
going to score. If the game went into overtime, somebody was
bound to knock in the winning goal.
But the game never made it to the extra session - thanks to
sophomore left wing Bryan Adams. The puck seemed to
appear on his stick as he was trailing the play into the Michigan
zone. He knocked in the winning goal with 52 seconds on the
clock, sending the 6,731-strong crowd into a frenzy.
"I was just hanging back in case (Michigan) broke the play
up so I could be the third forward back," Adams said. "It just
happened that two guys followed York and Tuzz, and the puck
was there for me. I thought to throw it at the net for a screen
shot, and the puck just went in the corner (of the net)"
Adams said he felt he redeemed himself after Michigan cap-
italized on his high-sticking penalty early in the third period.
But luck also went his way, too. Adams stated after the game
that he was aiming for the left corner. But his shot was deflect-
ed by Michigan defenseman Blake Sloan and was redirected
into the right corner of the net.
"I'll take it" Adams said.
While it wasn't Sloan's fault for having his stick up in the air,
the Wolverines could have done a better job of clearing the
All night long, Michigan had trouble getting rid of the puck
in its zone. Three of the five Michigan State goals could have
easily been prevented had Michigan poked the puck away,
made crisper passes from its zone, or smothered the Spartans
on the boards.
On the other hand, Michigan State defensemen pounced on
the puck or poked it away every opportunity they had. And then
there were the lucky breaks and awkward bounces.
In addition to Adams' deflected goal, Michigan State got a
gift from the boards behind the Michigan goal, 4 1/2 minutes
into the second period. Turco attempted to clear the puck from
his right, slapping behind the goal. But like a boomerang, the
puck hit the boards and caromed right in front of Turco.
Tuzzolino was there for the easy scoring chance and after
rebounding his own shot, he lifted the puck into a wide-open
Easy score, lucky bounce. Just like the game-winning goal.
"Sometimes you get the bounces," Tuzzolino said. "And that
was one bounce we are loving right now."
A bounce that gave Tuzzolino reason enough to release a
shout of jubilation during the post-game interview.

The Wolverines had no such worries
Friday night against the Fighting Irish.
Michigan scored the way that
Chicagoans vote - early and often.
It only took the Wolverines 1:19 to
grab the lead, and they never looked
back. John Madden skated down the
right wing and found Bubba
Berenzweig alone in the middle.
Berenzweig snapped a shot over goalie
Matt Eisler's shoulder for his second
goal of the year.
Mike Legg, Sean Ritchlin, Jason
Botterill and Matt Herr also scored in
the first period to give Michigan a 5-0
lead going into the first intermission.
But Michigan penalties early in the
second period allowed Notre Dame
back into the game.
Benoit Cotnoir's slapshot from just
inside the blue line found the net at 2:52
of the second period during a 5-on-3
Notre Dame power play.
Another Notre Dame power play,
3:40 later, resulted in Joe Dusbabek
following his own shot and scoring on
the rebound. Aniket Dhadphale's goal
off Madden's stick at 12:19 of the sec-
ond period reduced Michigan's lead to
But a pretty goal by Bill Muckalt, set
up by Sloan, at 14:03 of the period
secured Michigan's lead and the victo-
"The penalties really hurt," Berenson
said. "You just knew they were going to
come, and you knew we were going to
get them. You knew (the Fighting Irish)
were going to get a chance to get back
in the game.
"I don't know why, I just knew it was
going to happen."
By picking up only two points on the
weekend, Michigan is now in third
place in the CCHA with six points_1-
trailing Michigan State by two points
and Miami (Ohio) (5-0, 7-2) by four.
