Michigan Hockey: Minnesota vs. Michigan — Game 1 Recap
I thought Michigan played one of its better games of the season, but just couldn’t bury the third goal when they needed it.
Two mistakes cost them: giving up the tying goal in the last two minutes of the second period. They allowed the forward to come in with speed and push back the defense enough to get a really good shot off. The second was the penalty kill coverage breakdown on the game winner in OT.
Now, one can debate the call that led to it- the look that Berenson gave the official as he walked off the ice said it all- as he basically swallowed his whistle and let stuff go the entire 3rd period. But, the fact is, the guys were gassed and couldn’t hold on. A tie would have at least given them a chance.
This all but ends their at large chances as they slipped to 16th in the PWR. They have to win tonight and at least make it to the B1G Ten tourney championship game to have a chance at an at large. I think they left it all on the ice last night and don’t have much to offer tonight.
