Michigan enters Sunday 7-6-2-1 in Big Ten play, third place in the conference standings with 24 points. Michigan is two points ahead of Ohio State, both teams with five Big Ten games remaining. Michigan sits seven points behind Wisconsin for second place, but the Wolverines have one game in hand on the Badgers, who are idle this weekend. The top two teams in the Big Ten standings are automatically placed in the Big Ten Semifinals on March 21 in St. Paul, Minn.
Michigan will have the task of defending Ohio State forward Ryan Dzingel, who leads the Big Ten with 38 points (17 goals, 21 assists) on the season. Dzingel was held off the scoreboard on Friday, but had four points (two goals, two assists) in two games against Michigan earlier this season. The Buckeyes
have three of the conference’s top nine scorers in Dzingel, Max McCormick (11 goals, 15 assists), and Tanner Fritz (5 goals, 20 assists).
Freshman goaltender Zach Nagelvoort stopped 24 of 26 shots in net, the 12th time this season in 19 starts that he has allowed two goals or less, but the first time since Feb. 1 vs. Wisconsin (T, 2-2,) he has done so.
