Michigan Hockey: Icers Tie with Bulldogs — Win Shootout

Michigan probably played it’s worst first period of hockey (at home) this season against Ferris State, but managed to only surrender one goal and score a fluky one of its own.

GBMWolverine...Hockey SticksThe Wolverines took a 2-1 lead on an Alex Guptill snipe in the second period and turned the tables on the Bulldogs. FSU took advantage of a poor clear and poor positioning by freshman netminder Zach Nagelvoort to tie the game with a little more than 3 minutes left in the 3rd period. Both teams threatened but did not score in overtime, so officially the game ended in a 2-2 tie.

Michigan won a dramatic shootout which served no real purpose.

Michigan finishes the first half of the season 10-2-2 and 6-1-1 at home. They will not play at Yost until January 31st when Wisconsin visits for a pair of games.

The Wolverines will have 16 days off until the GLI tournament and will be shorthanded as sophomore Alternate Captain Andre Copp along with freshmen JT Compher and Tyler Motte will be selected to play on the USA U-20 World Junior Tournament team.

Michigan will take on WMU and then either MSU or Michigan Tech at Comerica Park, the site of this year’s GLI. (It will give reserves like Max Shuart, Andrew Sinelli and Justin Selman a chance to fill in up front.) The real concern will be on the blueline where Michigan has suffered one season ending injury and off and on injuries to other defensemen.
The six on the blueline should be: Bennett- Downing, Clare- Serville, DeJong- Chiasson and possibly Spencer Hyman or Mike Szuma.
