According to Berenson, Michigan got
big breaks at the right time.

they would have taken their chances on

Berenson. "We just happened to get the
breaks and the goals that we needed."
Michigan also got a chanceto improve
upon its struggling power play with the
nine opportunities it was given.
Freshman Greg Crozier netted a pair
with the man-advantage, the first to open
the scoring at 11:06 ofthe firstperiod,and
again at 17:29 of the second to knot the
game at two.
Overall, the Wolverines scored on five
of their 15 power plays- a rate that will
do wonders for a team that ranked last in
the CCHA in that department coming
into the weekend.

offensive zone penalties.
"They were taking penalties in the of-

goal," Berenson said ahout the Bulldogs.
"You can't take penalties like that."

Ferris once again had a 5-on-3 advan-

period, and failed to capitalize.
"(Killing the 5-on-3) was big because
it could have easily gotten them back into
the game," Berenson said.
Harold Schock put home his third goal
of the season, tying a career-high, at the
17:09 mark in the second period, with a
slapshot from the left point.
