leers Dominate Competition In Quest lor Championship A he Michigan hockey team looked to its core group of seniors and talented sophomores to defend their CCHA title and to return to the NCAA Tournament in the 1994-1995 season. Led by captains Mike Knuble, Rick Willis, and Steven Halko, as well as experienced defensemen (untouched by losses due to graduation), Michi- gan ranked high in preseason polls. However, due to the losses of three high scoring seniors and two outstanding goalies, the team focused on the freshman class, rated by the Central Scouting Service as the " top incoming class in collegiate hockey, " to provide the returning veterans with support as the team attempted to fill goaltending and scoring voids. The season started off well with an 8-0 win over York University with the Wolverines scoring five goals in the first period alone. Michigan led a balanced attack, as seven different players scored a strong indication of great depth up front. " It was a good game for the freshmen to get their feet wet, " said senior goalie Al Loges. " It was a game we dominated and played well, but that ' s how we have to play every night. It ' s a game to build on and learn from. " The leers did indeed build and learn as the season progressed, from both their successful performances and close calls. After losing one of a pair of games to Colorado College, the Wolver- ines ' record stood at 1-1. Another loss to the Tigers would have given the team their first losing record in seven years. However, with seconds left in the second game of the series, a Michigan power play, initiated by Brendan Morrison, Kevin Hilton, and Jason Botterill, sealed the 5-4 win and a huge early-season victory. " The good thing about Brendan is that he can keep his head when a lot of others are losing theirs, " said Michigan coach Red Berenson. " He ' s got an unbelievable knack for the pass, " added teammate Botterill, " putting it though skates, putting it through sticks, and getting it around to his linemate ' s stick. " Later in the season, the Wolverines ' hoped to advance a five game winning streak against arch-rival Lake Superior State. With Knuble, Hilton, and Morrison on scoring streaks as well, the team thrashed the Lakers 5-1 with confidence on Friday night. However, the next night, in front of a record crowd of 3,7 1 1 at Norris Arena, the Lakers fought back. " We knew in the first five minutes that the game would be a dog- fight, " said freshman goalie Marty Turco. Bill Muckalt clinched a come-from-behind victory 194 Sports and weekend sweep with 2:09 elapsed in the overtime period. " I knew if the puck came across, it was going in, " said Muckalt. The star of the weekend, however, was Turco, who stopped 34 of Men ' s hockey team takes regular season opponents by storm while striving toward an national title. the Lakers ' 35 shots on Friday, and accumulated 42 saves on Saturday. " Turco kept us in the game with save after save, " said coach Red Berenson. " You have to take your hat off to him. " Although at times the team played as if it was asleep on the ice, the Wolverines still man- aged to maintain a month-long winning streak i January. In that time, the team also successfull defended its seventh consecutive title at the Grea Lakes Invitational. Last minute scoring drives overtime victories, and the team ' s incrediblt talent and depth landed Michigan the No. spot in the WMEB college hockey poll in Feb- ruary. " Our team is not on a roll right now, even though our team is on a roll (in terms of its recent record), " said Berenson. The squad had much higher playing standards for itself. Cap tain Rick Willis added, " We expect to play wel all the time. " Shortly following their first place na tional ranking, third-period explosions landed the leers sole possession of the top spot in the CCHA for the first time all season. They en tered the CCHA tournament as the top seed. InJ the first round they swept Ohio State at Yost.
