Arnold, while on the other side of
the rink Gibby James and Ridgeway
Baker will try to outskate one anoth-
er as the battle rages.
The Heyliger-Fabello-James line is
certainly as good as Minnesota's for-
midable combination, but it is a
question whether they can stand up
under the charges of the Gophers
three lines and still have enough left
to outlast the veteran first stringers.
Lowrey, while planning to make
use of his second line as much as
possible, will nevertheless depend on
his starting trio to work the great-
er part of the game.
Merrill At Centerl
Jack Merrill will play center on
the alternate Michigan line, flanked
by the speedy George Cooke and Ed
Chase. The outcome of the game
may depend to a large extent on how
much of the time this second line can
Minnesota's second line is another
all veteran trio made up of the high
scoring Jimmy Carlson at center,
with Joe Schwab and Wally Taft on
the wings. Carlson is leading the
Gopher scorers and Taft is second-.
Around the Minneapolis Arena,
hockey fans speak of the Norsemen's
third combination as the pony line,
but that is misleading. Kenny An-
derson, Kenora, Ont., sophomore, is
the only youngster on the line. The
others are Loane Randall and center
Ray Wallace, both members of the
squad last season.
Varsity Outmatched
Though outmatched nine to six in
the front ranks, it will be on defense!
that Michigan will be most severely
outmanned. The highly competent
Bud Wilkinson, seasoned Gopher
goalie, will have Johnny Ganley,
Dick Kroll in front of him as starting
defensemen with Bob Carlson and
Bill Bredeson for frequent relief.
Michigan's sophomore net minder.
Bill Wood, who has stepped into the
breach like a veteran this season is
perfectly satisfied however and so
are all the Michigan fans. Bob Simp-
son and Bert Smith are the only two
rear guardsmen Michigan has, but
they are one of the best defense com-
binations the Coliseum ice has ever
seen and will be perfectly capable
of matching the hoisting activities of
the four Minnesota huskies at the
other blue line.
Meet In February
Tonight's clash will be the first of
the four-game series that the two
clubs play annually to determine the
Western Conference championship.
The second will be played Saturday
night and the final series at Minnea-
polis late in February.
In the last seven years of this bitter
rivalry Michigan has triumphed three
times and the Gophers four. Last
season the Wolverines won a great
overtime victory, 2-1, but fell before
superior power the second night to
drop any chance for recovering the
title which they last held two years
