said. "If we would've went 3-0, then game over."
The goal was Michigan's first of the game, nar-
rowing North Dakota's lead and setting the score at 2-
lrom the onset, it looked as though the
Wolverines were going to be in for a long night.
After giving up two goals in the first period and hav-
ing center Andrew Merrick ejected for checking
from behind, the Wolverines found themselves in an

maintained it for much of the game. Even after the
Her goal - which cut the lead to one - the Sioux
came back and scored five minutes later from the left
wing on a shot by Adam Calder.
Muckalt answered with a power-play goal at 8:38
on an assist from Mark Kosick to cut the lead back
down to one. Michigan forward Greg Crozier's power-
play goal 56 seconds into the third period tied the
score, and the Michigan rally was almost complete.

"It's a pretty emotional time, the last game at Yost,"
Muckalt said. "At least we did it in style. Our team
overcame a lot of adversity. We found a way to win
and that's character. It's just a tremendous team effort."
Home ice proved to be an important factor in
Michigan's victory on Saturday night. And similarly, on
Friday night,Yost was an advantage-but not just from
a crowd perspective. The actual surface of the ice played
a role Michigan's 2-1 victory over Princeton (18-11-7).
At 41 seconds into the period, Michigan center
Mark Kosick dumped the puck in from the side boards
toward Princeton goalie Erasmo Saltarelli. The puck
hit a groove in the ice, bounced over Saltarelli's stick
and into the net.
"I just blindly threw, trying to get it to Muckalt,"
Kosick said. "It bounced about 10 times and managed
to get into the net. It's the luckiest goal I've ever
The Wolverines also dodged a bullet late in the
game. Michigan defenseman Mike Van Ryn was whis-
tied for a hooking penalty with 1:20 left in the game.
With a pulled goalie and a man advantage already, the
Tigers had a golden opportunity to tie the game.
"They kept us hanging on for the last 10 minutes,"
Berenson said. a
But Michigan managed to kill off the penalty and
advance to the regional finals the next day.
This victory over North Dakota marks the fourth
straight final four appearance by the Wolverines, and
the sixth in the past seven seasons.

Angel of death' causes hospital scare
LOS ANGELES - As police tried to determine whether a self-proclaimed
mercy killer was a mass murderer or a fraud, people came forward Saturday to tell
police their relatives died mysteriously at a hospital that employed him.
"Their loved ones seemed to be OK one day and gone the next," said Rick
Young, spokesperson for the Glendale Police Department, which is heading t
investigation into the claims by the former respiratory therapist at Glenda
Adventist Medical Center.
Police were still unsure if Efren Saldivar, who is in his 20s and lives in Los
Angeles, told the truth when he admitting killing 40 to 50 terminally ill patients
during the last decade.
"We must establish that a crime did in fact occur," Young said.
Saldivar hasn't been charged with a crime and remains free while police, prose-
cutors and medical regulators continue with their investigations. His license was
suspended March 13, regulators announced Friday.
News of the confession shocked patients' relatives. Ana Spann went to the hos-
pital Saturday with questions about her 95-year-old grandmother, Juana Souza
who died Jan. 10, 1996, while undergoing respiratory treatments for pneumonia4
"I want to know: Did she die in her sleep, did she feel pain, or did somebody
murder her?" said Spann, of Alta Loma.

obstructs tax reform
WASHINGTON -This year, almost
a fourth of all individual tax returns will
claim the home mortgage interest
deduction, a highly lucrative tax benefit
that will cost the federal Treasury bil-
Because of that cost, and the deduc-
tion's huge popularity, it constitutes an
extremely expensive but politically
volatile obstacle to tax reform.
"This is the sacredest of sacred cows,"
said Stephen Moore, a tax specialist at
the Cato Institute, a libertarian think
Gregory Jenner, national tax partner
at Coopers & Lybrand LLP, observed: "I
don't think they can do tax reform with-
out, in some way, shape orform, dealing
with that issue.'
In 1996, 29.4 million of the 116 mil-
lion individual retums claimed the mort-
gage interest deduction, which lets most
homeowners write off their federal
income tax as mortgage interest expens-
es. Congress' Joint Committee on
Taxation estimates the benefit will cost
$232.6 billion between 1998 and 2002.
The real estate lobby has campaigned
strongly to keep the mortgage interest
deduction in place, arguing its removal
would create disruption and uncertain
in housing and other property markets.
