Wolverines thumped by Terriers, 7-2

By Matt Mackinder/Michigan Beat Writer

Special teams were key Saturday night and No. 7 Boston University won that battle with five power-play goals in beating Michigan, 7-2, in Beantown.

The fifth-ranked Wolverines (4-2-0) got power-play goals from Robbie Czarnik (his first NCAA goal) and Louie Caporusso, but were stonewalled on their 10 other man-advantage opportunities by the Terriers (4-1-0).

"We had very little offensive rhythm," Michigan head coach Red Berenson said. "I can pinpoint two or three good scoring chances in the game and that was it. We can't win a game like that."

Billy Sauer started in goal and made 19 saves on 23 shots before being pulled after the second period. Bryan Hogan played the final 20 minutes and finished with six saves on nine shots.

The end of the game was marred by a fight between Michigan's Brian Lebler and BU's Vinny Saponari. Each received a five-minute major and game disqualification that will result in each player missing their team's next game due to the automatic one-game suspension that comes with the DQ.

Michigan returns home next weekend to host Ohio State Friday night and Saturday night.
