'M' searches for go-to scorer
By ZACH HELFAND
Daily Sports Editor
Michigan hockey coach Red
Berenson did something slightly
unusual for a Tuesday practice.
At the end of the
session, he had St.Lawrence
the middle of
the ice cleared at Michigan
by a Zamboni Matchup: St.
and puthis team Lawrence 0-2;
through a simu- Michigan 3-0

out rule was
years ago, soit's
highly unlikely they'll encounter
one against St. Lawrence (0-2) on
Thursday. Still, Berenson always
runs the team through a simu-
lation in the practice directly
preceeding a game, so the team
will gain confidence if the situa-
tion ever should arise. There was
another reason Berenson wanted
the extra reps in Tuesday's prac-
tice, too - he needed to evaluate
the talent. Right now, he has no
idea who would take the shots
with the game on the line.
"I'd like to find who those play-
ers are," Berenson said. "That's
another reason we do it - we're
The choice would've been clear
last season. Michigan would've
invariably gone with a top scorer,
like Carl Hagelin or Louie Capo-
This year, the Wolverines don't
have such players. Sure, forwards
like senior David Wohlberg and
junior Chris Brown will light the
lamp with relative consistency,
but they're just not the natural
goal-scorers that Michigan has
had in the past.
"We don't have those guys,"
Brown said. "We have a couple
of guys who can really put the
puck in the net, but we don't have.

those guys who are going (to go)
out on the ice and probably get a
That supposed lack of elite
goal-scoring talent has translat-
ed to 14 goals for Michigan (3-0)
this year. Not too shabby.
The Wolverines' offense didn't
skip a beat in the opening week,
partially due to the strength of its
opponents - Niagara and Bentley
are not exactly Miami (Ohio) or
Notre Dame - and also because
the whole team has contributed
to the scoring.
Nineteen players have record-
ed points through only one week
of play, including fifth-year senior
goalie Shawn Hunwick, who
picked up an assist in the first
game against Niagara. Michigan
had just five more players tally
a point all of last year. And nine
players this year have scored the
Wolverines' 14 goals.
"I think we're getting some
balanced scoring," Berenson
said. "But this is good. How pro-
lific we'll be offensively remains
to be seen, but I think we're
going to get more goals from
our defense as we get going, and
(junior forward) Kevin Lynch
hasn't played yet and (freshman
forward) Zach Hyman's going to
score, and so on. So we'll see, we

Michigan will face a St. Law-
rence team limping into Yost Ice
Arena on Thursday. The Saints
finished 13-22-5 last season, good
for second to last in the ECAC.
They dropped their first two
games this season to Ferris State
by a combined six goals.
Berenson said that St. Law-
rence will still be an experienced,
gritty team. Its physical play
could make goals hard to come
"Typically they're hard to play
against," Berenson said. "They
don't give you much and you've
got to earn it. So when we do
our man-on-man drills, that'll
go right into the game. You'll see
that on Thursday."
There will be an extra empha-
sis on defense in Thursday's
game, with scoringexpected to be
at a premium. That style matches
the Wolverines' approach to the
season - Brown said that prac-
tices this year have placed extra
stress on defense.
"We did lose a lot of guys,"
Brown said. "We've got to make
sure we're not giving up more
than two to three goals a game
since we know scoring is going to
Hunwick said that until scor-
ers emerge, Michigan will have
to be an opportunistic team that
plays solid defense. Through
three games, the defense has
done its part. And the offense
has gotten it done, too, even if the
goals were sometimes what Hun-
wick described as "ugly."
The Wolverines did pump a
lot of shots on goal without much
to show for it early in games last
week, and Berenson said that
the team needs to do a better job
finishing. Still, they capitalized

"When we looked at our team
last year, we were in the top
maybe five or six offensively, but
we were number one defensive-
ly," Berenson said. "That's why
we finished in first. And that's
what we're going to have to really
focus on with this team."

The No. 20 Michigan women's
after the 25-14 loss in the first set
to No. 1 Illinois. It wanted to put
five more points on the board.
The Wolverines tacked on
five more MICHIGAN 1
points but ILLINOIS 3
losing the set, 25-19. In the locker
room they joked about how they
should have set their sights a lit-
tle higher - so they came out and
won the third, 25-21.
Going into the fourth set, they
decided to do it again. They were
neck-and-neck the whole way to
20 points, but their momentum
could only carry them so far.
Michigan lost the final set 25-20.
On Wednesday night, the
Fighting Illini (7-0 Big Ten,
18-0 Overall) added the Wolver-
ines (2-5 Big Ten, 14-5 Overall)
to the long list of teams left in
their undefeated wake. And the
loss was the fourth straight for
Michigan in its current Big Ten
The Wolverines lost the first
two sets due to a combination of
errors and an inability to mount a
serious offensive run. Senior out-
side hitter Alex Hunt, the hard-
hitting lefty, was having some
success going around Illinois's
front line down the side, but it
wasn't enough to pull out a win.
One set away from being
swept by Illinois, Michigan
looked to its middle blockers,
senior Courtney Fletcher and
sophomore Jennifer Cross, for
some momentum - they deliv-
ered in spades.
"We really wanted to establish
our middles in the third set," said
Michigan coach Mark Rosen.
"Jen and Fletch were doing a
great job of getting up quick and
swinging fast, and that's what
we needed them to do. Once
our middles got going, then that
opened up opportunities for
(redshirt junior outside hitter)
Claire (McElheny) and Ithought
that changed the game."
The Wolverines rode the
momentum from the third set
into the beginning of the fourth,
leading Illinois 9-5 at one point.
The Fighting Illini eventually
tied the set at 13 points apiece,
and Michigan kept the margin
within two until the very end.
But the Wolverines were never
able to retake the lead. The Wol-
verines were charged with the
task of toppling the top team in
the country on the road after
a surprise loss at home to an

While Rosen sees the game
only in terms of winning and los-
ing, he is admittedly proud of his
team's performance, despite the
fact that he knows it will need to
improve a great deal in order to
fight out of this slump.
"I think we took some pretty
big steps from three days ago to
now," Rosen said. "But we are in
the zero sum business, you either
win or you lose. There is no con-
solation. What we need to do is
