Wolverines dismantle the Irish

Michigan (11-4-1, 9-1-0 CCHA) put two touchdowns on the board last weekend against Notre Dame in a 6-1 win Friday night and an 8-0 shutout Saturday.

At Yost Ice Arena on Friday, six different Wolverines - T.J. Hensick, Eric Werner, Brandon Kaleniecki, Chad Kolarik, Milan Gajic and Brandon Rogers - scored to back Al Montoya's 21 saves in net. David Moss chipped in with two assists.

"Anytime there's a game like that where there's penalty after penalty, it's hard to get anything going," said Kaleniecki. "You don't know if you're going to get a regular shift; it's very difficult to get any flow going to the game."

"There were a lot of turnovers and scrambly play and the penalties in the game kind of take players out of the fold," added U-M head coach Red Berenson. "There was not much flow to this game."

Travelling to Notre Dame for Saturday's game, Kevin Porter and Jeff Tambellini each scored a pair and Montoya pitched a 16-save shutout. Porter also tallied two assists and Rogers registered three.

Hensick scored the first goal of the game for the second straight game. Kolarik, also with two assists, Werner and Jason Ryznar added to the scoring barrage.

Michigan finishes up its first half of the 2004-05 season when it faces Bowling Green in another home-and-home series on this weekend. U-M hosts first on Friday (Dec. 10) with a 7:35 p.m. face-off at Yost.
