'M' hopes to stop mighty Gionta

By JDO sfith
Dy SportsEditor
ALBANY, N.Y. - In practice this
past week, the Michigan hockey team
didn't have to look very far when
preparing for tonight's NCAA semifinal
against Boston College.
lather, all it had to do was take a
loong hard look at itself.
"1f you look in the mirror of our team
you'll see their team quite a bit too,"
Michigan associate head coach Mel
Paxson said. "It'll be a good game and
we look forward to that in that respect."
Both Michigan and Boston College

are aggressive, offensive-minded teams
that are led by a Hobey Baker Award
Finalist, and both have a defense that is
often overlooked.
"I think they have the same philoso-
phy as we do in many areas," Pearson
said. "We like to play an exciting up-
tempo hockey game. It's both of our
styles and at the same time you have to
tighten up once you get in the NCAA
A low-scoring game is an irregularity
for second-ranked Boston College, who
enters the game with the highest-scoring
offense in the nation (4.10 goals per
game) and is paced by the three-time

Hobey Baker Award Finalist Brian
Gionta. At 5-foot-7, Gionta may not
seem like an imposing figure on the ice,
but his crafty puck-handling ability and
legendary scoring touch helps him
chaige the course of a game by himself.
"Brian is obviously the leader of this
club," Boston College assistant captain
Bobby Allen said. "Some things he does
on the ice are impossible for everyone
else. He's very humble and quiet.
"He plays like a guy that's 6-foot-2,
and it seems like he does everything."
This includes the senior tallying five
goals on just five shots in the first period
of a game against Maine in late January.

Who: Michigan (27-12-5) vs. Boston College
When: 7:30 p.m. tonight
latest Earlier this year, the Eagles defeated a
short-handed Michigan team, 8-5. The last time
the Wolverines faced Boston College for the
national title in 1998-Michigan won 3-2(OT).
"He's one of those type of guys you
can miss for two periods and all of a
sudden, he turns you on and can score
three in a hurry," Pearson said. "He's
very explosive. I think he's the straw
that stirs the drink for that team."
While the senior and three-time All-
American Gionta leads the way, it's the
Eagles' supporting cast that separates
them from most teams. Boston College
has four lines that can be counted on to
score when needed.
Michigan coach Red Berenson
regards the Eagles as the "most danger-
ous team" left in the NCAA Tourna-
ment because of their offensive
explosiveness. But the caliber of players
such as Mike Cammalleri and Hobey
Baker Award Finalist Andy Hilbert that
the Wolverines go to war with on a
daily basis gives the them an advantage
when developing a scheme to contain
the Eagles' high-powered machine.

Fraser has found new
life i NCAA playoffs

Daily Sports Writer

THIS WEEKEND IN Presented by:

ALBANY, N.Y. -- Brad Fraser sat
out against Ferris State.
The defenseman was a healthy
scratch against Bowling Green, against
Northern Michigan.
The junior donned his best suit for
the Michigan hockey team's momen-
tous season-opener against Merrimack,
for heaven's sake.
So it would make perfect sense that
the rarely-seen No. 7 cruised the blue-
line in each of Michigan's last three
playoff games, right?
"You never know, you can't say who
will be a part of your plans," coach Red
Berenson said. "We didn't know who

In filling in for the injured And

sive instincts the Wolverines des t
ly needed in a replacement.
"That's the tough part about playin
that role, you don't think you're impo
tant or adding that much to the tea
then all of a sudden a player goes do
and you're in there," Berenson said.
Burnes took a shot to the head at t
very beginning of Michigan's March 1
game against Nebraska-Omaha in t
CCHA semifinal game. The freshin
phenom defenseman suffered a ccu
sion on the play - the fifth conciio
of his hockey career.
Burnes said earlier this week that t
side effects of the concussion -- m i
headaches - have worn off anal

Berenson is not so sure.
"I don't think there are any issu
with his health, it's just an issue asto
he can stand in and play," Berens '
earlier this week. "We'll make thalec
sion in Albany."
The Wolverines are taking all t
necessary precautions with BurnesI
then some. Aside from his potential as
player, Burnes' history demands no le
than a kid's gloves approach.
"You see guys like Eric Lindros, pv
here with (Michigan volunteer assis
coach) Brian Wiseman, whose (prof
sional) career ended early. As mush
you want the guy in the lineup, 0'
got to take precautionary measured t
benefit him."
Fraser's hockey upbringing center
on acquiring an offensive defensenien
mentality. When Fraser walked-on l
season for Michigan, and especially
the last three weeks, he's been askod
tone down the offensive tendencies
"They said, 'if there is a widj-p
chance, take it. But play 'D' Wt,
Fraser said with a chuckle.
The biggest challenge Fraser; h
faced in filling in for Burnes consiits
shaking off the rust of weeks of watc
ing as a spectator, and preparing
sudden-death war.
"The biggest thing is timing and;g
- if you give the forwards too nu
room, you give them the shots and
you give them too little room, tly
around you.
"Game tempo is faster than prmcti
tempo, so you got to adapt."

consider starting hormonal contraceptives only

3. Laboratory tests

your doctor you are taking a hormonal contracep-
tive. Certain blood lests may be affected by hor-
monal contraceptives.
4. Drug interactions{
Certain drugs may interact with hormonal contra-
ceptives to make them less effective in preventingy
pregnancy or cause a change in bleeding pattems.
Such drugs include aminoglutethimide, ritampin,d
drugs used for epilepsy such as barbiturates (forI
example, phenobarbital), carbamazepine, and
phenytoin (Dilantin us one brand of this drug),
phenylbulazone (Butazolidin is one brand), herbal
products conlaining St JohnsWort (hypericum
perdoralum), and possibly certain antibiotics. Yout
may need to use an additional contraception
method when you take drugs which can make
hormonal contraceptives less effective. Drug inter-
action studies have not been conducted with d
