Michigan blanks Bowling Green Tuesday

By Matt Mackinder/Michigan Beat Writer

Michigan finished up their staggered home-and-home series with Bowling Green last night with a 4-0 win at Yost Ice Arena.

The win, which puts the Wolverines into fourth place in the CCHA, was also Red Berenson's 690th as a head coach, good for sole possession of sixth place all-time.

Louie Caporusso scored twice for his first multi-goal game of the season and Berenson praised Caporusso's game afterwards.

"Louie battled hard and he has played really hard in recent games," said Berenson. "I would say he has played well since Christmas or even before Christmas. He was one of our best forwards in the Notre Dame series (Dec. 11-13). You could see him battling. He is trying hard and not getting the bounces. Now you can see that he is getting the bounces to go his way. He has made some good plays and his linemates are the recipients and they are scoring."

Brian Lebler and Brandon Burlon also scored to go along with a 21-save outing from Bryan Hogan and two assists from Chris Brown.

"Bryan Hogan made some big saves," said Caporusso. "I thought we came back pretty well and played well defensively. We still gave them some chances where it could have gone the other way. Before we knew it we had a couple of goals in the net and that puts them on their heels. They lose their confidence and feel like they are not as much in the game."

The Wolverines (17-13-1, 12-9-1-0 CCHA) head to Nebraska-Omaha for a pair of league games this weekend.
