Switcheroo sparks Legg
Hayes to practice today; Berenzweig gets redemption

By Mark Snyder
and Dan Stillman
Daily Sports Writers
Michigan coach Red Berenson
was not getting the productivity he
wanted from senior center Mike
Legg.
So last week, he swapped Legg
and sophomore wing Greg Crozier to
shake things up.
The combination of Legg, center
John Madden and wing Warren
Luhning gave Michigan the boost it
needed this past weekend.
The results were immediate. Legg
was on the ice when defenseman
Bubba Berenzweig's first shot of the
game flew past Notre Dame netmin-
der Matt Eisler for a goal. Four min-
utes later, it was Legg who scored a
goal of his own.
"I thought we had a number of
players who played better than they
had been," Berenson said. "We put
Legg on that line with Madden and
Luhning, and they scored the first
two goals for us. That's a senior line,
and they should be as good a line as
we have."
The first two scores sparked a
five-goal first period and gave
Michigan the necessary cushion to
coast home with a victory.
Including Saturday's game at
Michigan State, the three seniors
combined for two goals and five
assists for the weekend.
A HEALTHY SQUAD?: Almost 100
percent healthy. Sophomorescenter
Bobby Hayes' charley horse is the
only injury on the squad, but even he
is expected to practice today and his
status will be day-to-day.
"We expect him back on the ice
(today) for a full practice," Berenson
said. "Outside ofd that, everybody's
healthy."
TICK-TOCK, TICK-TOCK: Inter-
mission is usually a down time as far
as penalties are concerned.
But in a season in which the
Wolverines have accumulated more
than their fair share of penalties,
they took one more at the end of the
first intermission on Saturday, giving
the Spartans an unexpected man-
advantage.
Just before the second period
began, the Michigan bench received
a delay-of-game penalty for coming
out of the lockerroom late - accord-
ing to referee Duke Shegos.
Michigan coach Red Berenson
took some issue with the call.
"We have a little clock that we

have in the lockerroom, and we're
suppose to be out on the ice when
that comes down to zero," Berenson
said.
"We left the lockerroom when it
had 20 seconds left on it," he said.
"Maybe our clock wasn't the same as
their clock, but (Shegos) said we
were 15 seconds late, so we gave
ourselves a minute cushion (before
the third period), and maybe it takes
that long to walk out to the arena."
Fortunately for the Wolverines, the
Spartans did not convert on that two-
minute power play.
"It didn't affect the game, fortu-
nately, or I would be really disap-
pointed," Berenson said.
LOSING STREAK: With Saturday's
loss to Michigan State, the
Wolverines are in danger of losing
two consecutive games for the first
time since February.
Last season, Lake Superior defeat-
ed the Wolverines twice in one week-
end (Feb. 23 and 24).
Michigan had not lost since that
weekend until Saturday's game.
"We have to put (the Michigan
State game) behind us," Berenson

said. "Hopefully we'll be a little bet-
ter team this next weekend, not just
because of the loss, but because of
the time and the game experience.
MAKING HIS MNARK: Michiga
defenseman Bubba Berenzweig
wanted to prove himself. Not only to
his coach, but to his family and
friends as well.
When he scored on his first shot
early in the first period against Notre
Dame, he felt redeemed.
"I was real pumped up for the
game," Berenzweig said. "Coach:
(Berenson) was on my case, telini
me I needed to be ready for th
beginning of every game. So I want
ed to go out there and show I could
do it early on."
Berenzweig, a native of Arlington
Heights, Ill., had many friends at tlie
Joyce Center, though they weren't all
there to see him play.
"Part of my motivation was that 1
knew half of the guys on the Notre
Dame team. A couple of them were
from Illinois, and a couple of the
played with (in juniors). I had some-
thing to prove to them."
