Saturday
at Yost
Jim Rose -
ly Sports Writer
"The ref's lost control! The rf's lost
c4ntrol!"
The Yost Ice Arena crowd at
Saturday's Michigan hockey fight, er,
game, was right. The referee, indeed,
serried to lose control.
,Greg Crozier got his arm broken. Bill
Muckalt got speared in the neck.
Brendan Morrison got blasted from
behind. Bubba Berenzweig took six
*4nches in the face.
And Michigan won.
;The game, not the fight.
But never mind the 4-1 victory - the
repercussions for the Wolverines will be
se'vere. Greg Crozier is out indefinitely
with a fractured left arm, after Bowling
Green forward Dave Faulkner hit
Crozier from behind with a two-handed
swing of his stick. Jason Botterill,
ualt and Berenzweig all received
Vkme disqualifications, and will not be
elgible to play when Michigan State
visits Yost this Friday.
"It's kind of a bittersweet win,"
Michigan coach Red Berenson said.
"I'm-really disappointed in that kind of
hockey, and the way it was handled. I'm
not oing to point fingers, but I'd like
to:'
"The ref beats his wife! The ref beats
his wife!"
* With 1:30 to go, and the Wolverines
clinging to a 3-1 lead, it got ugly. After
Crozier left the ice, Botterill went after
Faulkner. Then Botterill went after
Johnson. Then Botterill went after the
Bowling Green bench.
"I just tried to put a little revenge on
Johnson, and next thing I know, I get
thrown out for fighting," Botterill said.
While Botterill was trading blows
with anyone and everyone wearing a
Falcons sweater, Muckalt charged into
the picture by literally diving into the
melee that was Bowling Green's bench.
"It all started when I got speared in
the front of the neck," Muckalt said.
"Just an absolutely gutless play. I'm not
gonna knock the (officiating), but you
can't let the game get out of hand like
that."
"Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey
hey ... "
*The.two teams don't have much time
o cool off - they meet again next
Saturday, when the Falcons host the
Wolverines. The game has already been
marked on the calendar as one to look
forward to.
"Faulkner's absolutely dead,"
Berenzweig said.
Muckalt was just as eloquent in his
assessment of next week's meeting.
"I'm not gonna lie - it's a war," he
Aid. "As far as I'm concerned, if you're
gonna play tough, drop the gloves."
Berenson wasn't as blunt, but he
made it clear he wasn't happy with the
Falcons:
"I don't have anything to say to them.
I was disappointed in them."

Hockeyland open

for weary
By Dan Stillman
Daily Sports Writer
Hockeyland would like to roll out the
red carpet to the masses of disheartened1
Michigan football and basketball fans.
Considering this weekend's events, its
may be tough for the park to accomodate
everyone wanting in. Nevertheless,1
Hockeyland won't turn away those in
need.
Admission isj
free, but first, a1
brief orientation
to avoid culture4
shock.f
Hockeyland is
basically a happy- '1
go-lucky kind of |
place. Football
fans having trou-1
ble picturing a
place like this in the wake of the 1
Wolverines' three-point effort againsti
Purdue need only imagine a world where 1
everyone feels the complete opposite ofs
the depressing, cynical shock you are
currently experiencing.
In Footballworld, the torture begins
when the schedule comes out. That's
when fans can first pinpoint which late-
season, cream-puff opponent the 1
Wolverines will choke on in any season.
Visitors from Footballworld will be
happy to know that Will Carr will not see
ice-time in Hockeyland. Why? Because ;
Carr did not make the Hockeyland
squad. More important, if he had, The
Giant Red Puck would not put Carr in
the game with post-season hopes on the
line - although he would make a great1
addition to a checking line.1
As for those entering the park from
from next-door Hoopsworld, here's an ;
important policy change: Hockeyland
requires all employees to establish resi-
dence within the park's gates no less than

'M'fans
two months prior to tourist season.
Now, a brief commercial announce-
ment. Hockeyland is offering a money-
balk, schedule guarantee. As if Albert
White's exploits weren't enough, visitors
of Hoopsworld were recently reminded
upon picking up their season passes of
the less than thrilling home slate, which
starts tonight with Australian Adelaide,.
another in a long line of international
juggernauts to open a new season of bas-
ketball at Crisler Arena, that Hockeyland
guarantees a jam-packed home schedule
of exciting conference and non-confer-
ence opponents.
WARNING: Attention Crisler regu-.
lars, or rather, every-once-in-a-whiles,
homework is not an acceptable excuse
for missing a game at Yost. Also, visitors
from Hoopsworld should not fear the,,
supportive cheering inside Hockeyland
headquarters. Yost fans not only show
up, but they actually try to create a
home-team advantage, probably a' for-
eign concept to those from Hoopsworld.
A sense of hospitality is also required in
Hockeyland, as it is polite to alert an
opposing goaltender of any phone calls
from his mom.
Hockeyland is ready to open its gates,
but lines may be long in coming days.
Following their most recent study,
Hockeyland researchers warned of a
sharp attendance increase. Subjects were
asked to pick from choice A, see the
Michigan hockey team raise its champi-
onship banner and beat Ohio State and
Bowling Green in one weekend, or B,
wave bye-bye to yet another Michigan
basketball defectee and watch the foot-
ball team blow a perfectly exciting Rose
Bowl push with a lackluster effort
against a team it should've beaten hand-
ily.
Results indicated that option B has
lost its novelty after a few years.

Michigan's Jason Botterill hunches over after taking on the Bowling Green bench Saturday night. He went after Bowling
Green's Mike Johnson after he charged Michigan captain Brendan Morrison. But before hockey night turned into fight night,
Michigan used a 1:15 stretch to break a third-period tie and earn a 4-1 victory.
Third-period spurt keys victory

By James Goldstein
Daily Sports Writer
Before the fracas in the waning moments of Michigan's 4-1
victory over Bowling Green on Saturday, it was a hard-fought
game with few punches thrown.
It's not as if there weren't slashes, high-sticks, shoves after
the whistle and blatant hooking. This game had all of those.
But the game went at an intense back-and-forth pace that
was relatively clean - that is, until the final minutes of the
game.
Yet, the game wasn't decided by the brawls. Forgetting the
mayhem occurring at the end of the game, a stretch of 1:15 in
the middle of the third period with the game knotted at one
changed the tone of the contest from nothing-out-of-the-ordi-
nary to exciting to wacky.
Only 75 ticks on the clock, but so much happened. By the
end of that frame, the Wolverines took the lead for good. The
Falcons looked frustrated. And the roar of the sold-out crowd
at Yost Ice Arena grew to a crescendo.
It all started when Michigan center John Madden received a
long feed from his own blue line, and skated in for what looked
to be a breakaway.
Bowling Green defenseman Kelly Perrault hooked Madden,
dragging him down to the ice. Fans were screaming for a
penalty shot. The referees ruled Madden didn't have a clear
path to the goal.
The clock read 8:55.
"(Madden) goes in all alone, and you think a penalty shot is
going to be called," Bowling Green coach Buddy Powers said.
"It's not called, and when (Michigan) is on the power play, they
are dangerous."
On the Wolverines' sixth and final power play, Michigan
gained control of the puck in the Falcons' zone and did a good
job of keeping it there. Madden couldn't control the puck in
front of Bowling Green goaltender Mike Savard, and the
Falcons' defense poked it away.
Michigan left wing Jason Botterill was in the right place at
the right time and wristed the puck high with a logjam of play-
ers in front of Savard. The goal light went off, the crowd went
nuts, and the Wolverines celebrated.
But no.
Referee Roger Graff didn't signal that the goal had counted.
Graff huddled with both linesmen and still didn't makQ the
call. Meanwhile, Botterill and Bowling Green center Brad

Holzinger got in a little slash-fest. Both players were sent to the
penalty box with the decision on the goal still not made.
The referees consulted the goal-judge before finally waving
off the goal five minutes after the play occurred. Botterill, who
was seated in the penalty box, stood up and pounded his stick.
After the game, though, he felt the right call was made.
The clock read 8:05.
"I saw the traffic in front of the net so I tried to wrist it high"
Botterill said. "I wasn't at a good point to see it, bit I think the
referee made a good call now. I think it hit the crossbar and
came out."
Powers said there was no doubt in his mind what call should
have been made.
"From where I was, it hit the crossbar and came straight
down,' Powerssaid. "You could hear the pipe. If the puck hits
the lining on the net, it is not going to make that clang. To us, it
wasn't even a question mark. (The referees) made it a fiasco."
The craziness didn't end there, though. Fifteen seconds later,
with the Wolverines on a four-on-three advantage, Michigan
goaltender Marty Turco went after a loose puck outside the
goal crease:.
Turco went all the way to the blue line as the coaches and
fans' hearts dropped to their knees. Turco, who often plays the
puck outside the goal crease, chased the puck almost to the
Michigan bench and attempted a belly-flop to smother it. But
the Bowling Green forwards knocked it out of his reach, and
Turco had to hustle back to the Michigan net. Bowling Green
had several opportunities to grab control of the puck and knock
it in the empty net, but the Falcons couldn't do it.
The Falcons' failure to score on a gift from Turco immedi-
ately came back to haunt them. Ten seconds later, Michigan
center Matt Herr slid a pass from the left side of the goal crease
to a surging Warren Luhning on the right, and Luhning one-
timed it past Savard, giving Michigan a 2-1 lead - a lead the
Wolverines would not relinquish.
A breakaway, three penalties, a waved-off goal, an empty
Michigan net, the game-winning goal. It took more than five
minutes to watch the plays, but just one minute and 15 seconds
ticked off the clock.
When Powers looked up at the clock after Luhning's goal, it
read 7:40.
"Things were going on there that were really out of whack,"
he said.
Seventy-five seconds of mayhem.
