Recap |  Notes

Michigan Head Coach Red Berenson
On tonight's game ... "You have heard me say it before, usually I will tell you we got a good start, and we did not. Last night, I think we got four shots in the first period, tonight we got five. The second period both nights we came back and got our game back with the help of five power plays. I thought our team was playing harder and better. Now it is a one-goal game going into the third just like last night. We give up the next goal, and our team is playing hard. We had good chances and loose pucks. We are not putting our chances in, and we are giving up goals we shouldn't give up. We can't make any more excuses, that is the way it is."

On special-teams play ... "Our power play finally scored a goal, but theirs scored two. We were beaten on special teams both nights. Everybody in our lineup is on special teams. Either on the power-play unit -- first unit or second unit -- or they are on the PK, and they are just not getting it done. That is the way it is."

On the team's current mentality ... "I think we are fragile. In years past, we would lose a game, but we would bounce back the next night. I can't remember being swept like we were have been this year. Our team is fragile there is no question. They are feeling the heat; they are proud. They want to do well for Michigan, and they are frustrated."
