The Michigan Wolverines scored two power-play goals in the first period Thursday night and held on for a 2-1 win over host Bowling Green.
Matt Rust (pictured) and Chris Brown scored during a five-minute power play with goals at 12:05 and 13:16 of the first period, while Bryan Hogan made 12 saves for the win in goal.
"It was another close game," said Michigan head coach Red Berenson. "Last time we were in here, it was a 1-0 game. You knew it would be a close game again and it was. I don't know what it is about Michigan or Bowling Green, but when they play in this building it's an exciting game. There were a lot of turnovers and a lot of chances. I can't tell you much more. It was mostly a shinny game more than a hockey game."
Up next for the Wolverines (16-12-1, 11-9-1-0 CCHA) is the outdoor Camp Randall Hockey Classic on Saturday inside Camp Randall Stadium against the No. 3-ranked Wisconsin Badgers at 5:07 p.m. CST. The game will be televised by the Big Ten Network and a crowd of over 50,000 is expected.
Michigan and Bowling Green will complete their season series at Yost Ice Arena next Tuesday at 7:35 p.m.
