Michigan struggled to generate
offense, posting only 22 shots on goal.
"Northern checked well and worked
hard," Berenson said. "I thought were on
top of us for most of the night. We never
really generated a lot of offense."
Michigan's best scoring opportunity
came five-and-a-half minutes into the
second period, when Bill Muckalt broke
in alone on Northern goaltender Duane
Hoey. Muckalt tried to beat Hoey up
high, but his wrist shot missed, grazing
the top of the cross bar.
"We had a couple of chances to bury
the puck, and we didn't do it," Michigan
forward Dale Rominski said.
One reason for Michigan's scoring dif-
ficulties was its performance on the
power play. It went 0-6 with only three
shots with the man advantage.
On Friday night, however, the
Wolverines made good on their chances,
scoring five goals, including three power
play tallies. The biggest goal of the game
came just two seconds after a Northern
penalty expired. Twenty seconds into the
third period, Muckalt slammed a Josh
Langfeld rebound into the open side of
the net to give the Wolverines a 4-3 lead.
"It was 3-3 going into the third period,
so the next goal was a huge goal,"
Turco s 100th win
not soiled by loss
MALLORY SE. FLOYD/Da Iy
Greg Crozier and the Michigan hockey team split the weekend series with Northern Michigan, 5-3 and 0-1.
Four minutes later, Bobby Hayes
added a short-handed tally, giving the
Wolverines a 5-3 victory. The victory was
Turco's 100th, making him the second
goaltender in NCAA history with 100
wins. Former Wolverine Steve Shields
holds the NCAA record with 112 wins.
The Wildcats pressured Michigan
from the start, taking an early 1-0 lead
when Brad Frattaroli scored on a break-
away six minutes into the game.
But the Wolverines evened the score at
1-1 five minutes later on a power play
goal by Mike Van Ryn.
"We knew they would come after us
and they did" Berenson said. "They were
right on top of us from the start."
After Frattaroli's second goal gave
Northern a 2-1 lead in the second period,
Michigan answered with power play goals
by Mark Kosick and Chris Fox.
Northern's Mike Sandbeck then tied the
game at three going into the third period.
"We won three games on the road,"
Rominski said. "It would have been nice
to finish out with four, but they pulled
one out in the end."

MARQUETTE - The paradox.
Many elements of life boil down to
statements that seem to contradict them-
Without law, there can be no freedom.
You're damned if you do, damned if you
don't. Marty Turco is goaltender for the
Michigan hockey team.
As plain as it may seem, the last state-
ment is one of the most complicated
paradoxes in hockey.
it. No member'
of a hockey team
relies more com-
pletely on the t4
support of his
does a goal-
tender - to
clear the puck
from the zone
and to prevent
odd-man rushes, just to name a couple
But at the same time, no one bears
more individual responsibility for his
team's success. When it comes down to
it, the goalie is the last thing between
opponents and the net. When a puck gets
through, the goalie ultimately has
nobody to look at but himself.
Turco faced both extremes of the
goalie's paradox this weekend when the
Wolverines split a two-game series at
In both games, Turco played phenom-
enally, giving the type of performance
his teammates, fans and the opposition
have come to expect from the senior.
During Friday night's 5-3 victory over
the Wildcats, Turco had 21 saves en
route to his 100th career win, placing
him second behind Steve Shields (112)
for Michigan career victories.
It was definitely a team win for
Michigan - Turco would be the last to
say it wasn't. But as goaltender - as the
anchor of his team - the victory held
more significance for Turco.
All night long, Turco had been chal-
lenged by the Wildcats. The three shots
that got by Turco were the result f
Michigan defensive breakdowns.
Turco put up a solid performance, and
Northern couldn't take his 100th win
away from him. He knew that Michigan's
defensive inexperience would give up
some plays, but he also knew it was his
responsibility - his job - to stop the
puck, to get the win. lis 100th, no mat-
ter what kind of situation he faced.
After the game, Turco gave the game
puck and his stick to his parents. T'y
were his to give. A goalie relies or ,s
teammates, but the 'W' goes under his
name, as well as that of his team.
Then there's the other side of the coin.
The loss as opposed to the win; Saturday
night as opposed to Friday night.
In Saturday's 1-0 loss to Northern,
Turco had a better performance than he
did on Friday, stopping 21 of 22 shots.
But the Wolverines had given
Northern many opportunities, and it ks
only a matter of time before the Wil es
capitalized. Michigan, with its lack of
offensive production, squandered a great
game by Turco.
Turco faced the other side of the para-
dox. In his mind, it's his job to stop puck,
and it's his job to make sure that
Michigan wins. When Michigan doesn't
win - even if he does his part - it's not
enough for Turco.
When it comes down to it, even more
than his impressive 100 career vict s
is the way Turco handles the goaltender's
paradox that truly marks his success. He
expects the best from his teammates
because only a combined effort can win
But he expects more than the best
from himself, because he's the team's
last defense, and ultimately - win or
lose - it all rests on his shoulders.
