Michigan swept at No. 7 Miami

By Matt Mackinder/Michigan Beat Writer

Hitting the road yielded two losses for No. 9 Michigan as the Wolverines scored just one goal in being swept by seventh-ranked Miami this past weekend.

Friday night, Billy Sauer made 25 saves, but U-M was blanked, 2-0.

Last night, Michigan killed seven RedHawk power plays, Bryan Hogan had 32 saves and Chris Summers scored Michigan's lone goal in a 2-1 defeat.

"I thought we played a great game (Saturday) night," Summers said. "I thought maybe Friday night we didn't play as well, but tonight we played a solid game and the difference is going to be that they capitalized on their opportunities and we didn't on all of ours."

Next week, the Wolverines (8-6-0, 5-5-0 CCHA) take a break from CCHA play to participate in the 16th Annual College Hockey Showcase. U-M plays the top-ranked Minnesota Golden Gophers on Friday at 7:05 p.m. CST in Minneapolis. The Big Ten Network will televise the Minnesota contest. Michigan then moves on to play the Wisconsin Badgers on Saturday at 7:05 p.m. CST in Madison, Wis.
