Wolverines, Sauer blank Bowling Green Tuesday

Chad Kolarik's power-play goal 2:43 into the first period delivered Michigan the quick start it needed to defeat Bowling Green, 5-0, Tuesday night at Yost Ice Arena.

The Wolverines never lost the momentum, outshooting BGSU, 33-22, en route to a dominating performance.

Kolarik added a second tally in the third period and David Rohlfs also contributed two goals as Billy Sauer shutout the Falcons with 22 saves in net.

At the other end, Chesterfield native Jimmy Spratt stopped 28 for the Falcons.

Kevin Porter also scored for Michigan, who improved to 14-8-0 on the season and 9-5-0 in the CCHA.

"We haven't had our team together since early December and we haven't won a home game since late November," said U-M head coach Red Berenson. "It's a good feeling and we have to build on it. We don't have much time to enjoy it, we have to refocus for Northern Michigan (this Friday). It was a good step in the right direction."

Michigan will host Northern Michigan this weekend, starting with Friday's game at 7:35 pm. The game will be televised on Comcast Local. Saturday's game will close out U-M's lone series with the Wildcats and is scheduled to begin at 7:35 pm as well.
