Madden's penalty-killing keeps
Wolverines' foes on their toes

Daily Sports Writer
BOWLING GREEN - Someone
once said, "a tie is like kissing your sis-
This weekend, Michigan's sister was
Repeatedly, the Michigan hockey team
had its hands tied, and repeatedly, it over-
came the obstacles.
And there was no greater challenge
this weekend than a shorthanded situa-
tion while the Wolverines were down a
goal to Bowling Green.
Forty seconds after Michigan forward
Matt Herr scored to bring Michigan
within one, he put Michigan in a difficult
Herr was sent to the penalty box for
tripping, and senior center John Madden
seized the shorthanded opportunity. He
drove up the middle of the ice, received a
centering pass from center Bobby Hayes
and knocked home the equalizer.
"(The goal) wasn't much on my part,"
Madden said. "It was all (Hayes) and
(forward Chris Fox's) doing."
While modesty is Madden's nature,
Bowling Green coach Buddy Powers did-
n't cut corners with his praise for the
"He's one of the best players in the
country," Powers said. "He scores big
Michigan went from having its hands
tied to having the game tied.
For Madden, the late goal was not an
aberration. After leading the nation in
shorthanded goals with 10 last season, he
is off to a quick start once again.
He has been scoring shorthanded all
season long. Madden leads Michigan
with four shorthanded goals - a crucial
statistic for Michigan.
"Any game you look at, shorthanded
and power play (goals) make a differ-
ence," Herr said.
Michigan coach Red Berenson agrees.
"Our team's not going to lie down and
die because we're shorthanded,"
Berenson said. "There may be times
(when) it can work to your advantage.
The other team thinks it has an edge and
all of the sudden a guy like Madden
scores a shorthanded goal.'
The Falcons fell into that trap, and
Madden made them pay.
"We don't want to rely on shorthanded
goals, but just because you're a man
down, doesn't mean you give up,"
Friday night's 5-1 victory over
Michigan State was also a direct result of
Michigan's efforts when it was a man
"We drew some penalties because of
our (style of) play," Michigan State coach
Ron Mason said. "But we couldn't put it
away on our power play."
Eleven times, Michigan handed the
Spartans an extra skater, and 10 of those
times, Michigan killed off the penalties.
And on one of those kills, Madden
made a statement.
Michigan's top penalty-killing unit
connected at 18:29 of the first period to
give Michigan a two-goal lead. Once
again, it was Herr and Madden doing the
damage. Herr slid a pass in front of the
net that Madden banged home.
The goal gave Michigan a 3-1 lead, a
cushion it would not relinquish.
But Michigan would not have to be so
concerned with shorthanded situations if
it could keep its men on the ice.
The Wolverines tallied 20 penalties for
the three periods and racked up an
astounding 70 minutes in the penalty
"(The Wolverines) were doing the
things they want to do" Mason said.
Michigan captain Brendan Morrison
feels that the special teams spark the rest
of the squad.
"When we're working hard it shows up
in our special teams,' Morrison said.
"We feed off the penalty kills.... And it
was contagious to the whole team.
Even if their hands were tied.
This weekend, Michigan's John Madden continued his Inexplicable tear on the
penalty-killing unit, scoring two more shorthanded goals.

XXX4 fj .C .Y ¢ fJtfp h' Falcons fold,

BOWLING GREEN - Rarely do things work
out the way they're supposed to.
This past weekend was no exception.
After last weekend's melee between the
Michigan and Bowling Green hockey teams,
Saturday's rematch at Bowling Green had the
potential to get out of hand.
On Friday night, the Wolverines hosted Michigan
State in what should have been a clean game
between two top-10 squads.
Surprise, the complete opposite occurred.
The Michigan-Michigan State game turned into
another episode of Fight Night at Yost with 122 total
penalty minutes, while the Wolverines and Falcons
played a hard-hitting, but disciplined, game with
only 28 penalty minutes.
"I think the fans and the reporters might have
been the only ones expecting problems (Saturday
night)," Bowling Green coach Buddy Powers said.
"We talked in our meeting (Saturday) about that:
No bull. Just play hockey."
Michigan coach Red Berenson was encouraged
by the behavior of the teams.
"Both teams played with better emotional control
and realized that it's not worth it to do something
stupid," Berenson said. "I think our team has real-
ized it, and hopefully more teams will realize it. It
was a better hockey game tonight (compared to
The Spartans evidently had not reached the same
conclusion as of Friday night.
Midway through the second period, Michigan
right wing Justin Clark got cross-checked into the
Michigan State goal by Michigan State's Sean
Berens. No sooner did the three come to a sliding
stop when Michigan State's Richard Keyes came up
whaling away on Clark with punch after punch.
Meanwhile, Michigan State goaltender Chad
Alban was standing out near his blue line, motion-
ing toward Michigan goaltender Marty Turco, who
had skated out to center ice, to come over and drop
"Originally, the only reason I did come out of my
net was cause I saw (Alban) out of his net:'"Thrco
said. "Emotions were running high, and I didnt
want to get in there unnecessarily.
Michigan State coach Ron Mason expressed his
disappointment with Alban.
"I didn't like it. I don't think that's part of the
game," Mason said. "And as far as I'm concerned,
Turco didn't have to come up to the red line either.
He stays down in the goal and nothing happens?'
Following the brouhaha, referee Matt Shegos dis-
qualified four players - Michigan's Justin Clark
and Chris Frescoln, and Michigan State's Richard
Keyes and Brad Hodgins - for Saturday's games.
Turco received a two minute unsportsmanlike
penalty while Alban got the same time for roughing.
"Both teams played hard. They played with a lot
of emotion:' Berenson said. "I thought it was
uncalled for - the skirmish at the end down near
Michigan State's Richard Keyes and Michigan's Justin Clark were both tossed from Fiday's game
because of this skirmish. They both had to sit out Saturday's games.
