Hockey team prepares for Cinderella Three icers

hockey team promises it isn't
taking Bowling Green lightly.

Did they over- TV/Radio:
look streaking FSD+
then? As they admitted, they're
guilty as charged.
Senior forward David Wohl-
berg didn't sugarcoat it. The
Wolverines (15-9-4-1 CCHA,
23-11-4 overall) were underpre-
pared last time around, when
they lost their chance at a share
of the CCHA regular-season
crown at Bowling Green.
"I thought we walked into
that weekend thinking, 'There's
going to be two games that are
going to be somewhat easy,' "
Wohlberg said. "That (series)
really opened our eyes to how
good of a team they were."
This time around, it would
seem impossible for Michigan to
underestimate the CCHA's ver-
sion of Cinderella. But that's not
to say that the Falcons (5-19-4-3,
14-23-5) aren't talented enough
to advance to Saturday's title
game on their own merits.
"I thought after that weekend
(that) they were a much better
team than their record," said
Michigan coach Red Berenson
on a confprence call Tuesday.
"When they hired (coach) Chris
Bergeron ... it was just a mat-
ter of time before that team
would take a step, and obviously
they've taken that step."
Since Bowling Green's 4-3
victory over the Wolverinen, the
Falcons have proven that it was
no fluke and that they are legiti-
mately eyeing the CCHA Tour-
nament title and the automatic
bid to the NCAA Tournament
that accompanies it.

Senior forward David Wohlberg finished the 2011-12 retular season as Michigans second-leading scorer. Wohlhert and Michigan face Bowling Green tonight.
After the loss at Bowling
Green, Berenson noted that Fal-
con netminder Andrew Ham-
mond has the potential to steal
his team a playoff series. But
Hammond's done more than
that: he's earned two. Both have
come in similar fashion - on the
road, facing elimination.
"Every team seems to have a
good goalie this time of year,"
Berenson said. "They just come
in different sizes."
Last weekend, the Falcons
trailed regular-season champion
Ferris State after one period in
Big Rapids, 3-0.
Instead of being content with
reaching the quarterfinals,
Bergeron told his team some-
thing that completely tilted the
"We told the team that
they hadn't given up on them-
selves the whole year, and that
this wasn't the time to do it,"
Bergeron said on the conference
call. "If they would have quit on
that game and quit on each other,
they would have regretted it."
There's no reason to believe
that Bowling Green will pick
the semifinal game against
Michigan to do so, either. So
after watching the unbelievable
comeback on tape, Berenson has
stressed to the Wolverines that
if the early goal, or even three of
them, does come, the game is far
"We know that this time of
year, no lead is safe," Berenson
said. "You've got to play 60 min-
utes. It's always a little bit about
your opponent, but it's more
But Joe Louis Arena has been
kind to the Wolverines this sea-
son. Michigan has gone 3-0 there
so far. And for junior forward
A.J. Treais, Joe Louis was home
ice growing up, as a member of
Little Caesar's hockey teams.
"I've been fortunate enough
to have success playing at the
Joe," Treais said. "It's a comfort-
able place for me to play, espe-
cially in these big stages."
While Berenson doesn't think
that the arena dictates how
fired up his team is for a game,
he thinks the importance of the
game most certainly does. This
week, then, should have the Wol-
verines bouncing off the walls.
"Just like last weekend, we
knew playing Notre Dame in
the first round at home, the
motivation and incentive would
be there," Berenson said. "The
crowd was great. It'll be similar
down there. ... We'll feel some
comfort level playingthere."

finals will be televised on Fox

DETROIT - Three Michi-
gan hockey players took home
accolades Thursday night at the
CCHA awards show.
The event took place at
Detroit's Fox Theatre, where the
league's top players donned tux-
edos and gathered to be recog-
nized by their peers and coaches.
Freshman forward Alex Gup-
till, already named a member of
the CCHA's All-Rookie team,
earned the Rookie of the Year
Guptill led the entire Wolver-
ine roster in scoring.
The award was presented to
Guptill by Michigan assistant
coach Brian Wiseman. Wiseman
is a former Rookie of the Year
himself, being recognized early
in his storied career as a Wolver-
Senior captain Luke Glenden-
ing was honored as the league's
best defensive forward. Earlier
on Thursday, Glendening empha-
sized how he feels his defensive
efforts shape him as a player and
how Michigan coach Red Beren-
son doesn't expect, but demands,
that his forwards learn how
to play both ways. After being
handed the award, Glendening,
not known for his scoring prow-
ess, poked fun at himself.
"I think they showed my only
two goals (during the highlight
reel)," Glendening said. "And one
of them was an empty netter."
Junior forward Chris Brown's
through-the-legs goal brought
fans to their feet across the
league and won the fan vote for
CCHA Play of the Year. The mas-
sive screen above the stage prom-
inently displayed the highlight of
Brown's undressing of the Miami
Western Michigan's Danny
DeKeyser edged out Michigan
senior defenseman Greg Pateryn
for best defenseman.
Berenson fell short as a nomi-
nee for his third-ever CCHA
the trophy was given to Ferris
State's Bob Daniels, who coached
the Bulldogs to a regular-season
Though no Wolverine was
nominated for the award, Michi-
gan State defenseman Torey
Krug earned the CCHA Most
Valuable Player trophy.
