Lighting The Lamp: Michigan Sucks


Bowling Green 4, Michigan 2: Sucks might be a little strong, but something is definitely not right in Ann Arbor. Michigan had a 2-1 lead after 2 periods thanks to Louie Caporusso and Robbie Czarnik, but Bowling Green scored 3 times in a 2:22 span gave Bowling Green the upset. Kyle Page scored on a 5 on 3 power play, and then Tommy Dee got one of the 5 on 4 variety.

Cornell 5, Princeton 2: Cam McIntyre scored twice for the Tigers, but Cornell has seemingly reinvented themselves as a high scoring team this year. Blake Gallagher had 2 goals, while Riley Nash, who is one of my personal faves, had one. Joe Devin had 3 assists in the win. Ben Scrivens and Zane Kalemba each made 28 saves.

Ferris State 8, Ohio State 1: Blair Riley had a hat trick for Ferris and added an assist, as Jordan Barber and Taylor Nelson combined for 26 saves to give Ferris the upset. Zac Dalpe had the lone goal for the Buckeyes.

Canisius 7, AIC 0: AIC isn’t the stiffest opponent, but perhaps Canisius can break the stranglehold that RIT and Air Force have had on Atlantic Hockey for the past couple of years. Cory Conacher had 2 goals and an assist, and Dan Morrison made 42 saves. Canisius had 49 SOG.

Duluth 4, Minnesota 3: Duluth scored with just 11 seconds left in overtime, as Travis Oleksuk was set up by Justin Fontaine and Rob Bordson. It was not all bad for the Gophers however; Jordan Schroeder scored 43 seconds into the 2nd period, and he seems to be finding his groove. Maybe Gopher fans should start more rumors about him jumping to the pro ranks.

Denver 1, North Dakota 0: Brad Eidsness had a great game, making 33 saves, but he was one-upped by Denver’s Marc Cheverie, who made his return to the lineup with a 34 save shutout. I’d say he’s just fine. Freshman Drew Shore had the game’s only goal.
