Recap |  Notes

Michigan Head Coach Red Berenson
On the game ... "I think it was important, the way the game started, that we scored the first goal. Shawn (Hunwick) made a couple of big saves early and then we finally got one and I think coming in here and playing on the road, with a good crowd, against a good team -- one of the top teams in the country -- I have to think we got a little lucky, but we played well. It was a good road game for us."

On Lee Moffie's play ... "I think it's important that the offense isn't always coming from the forwards and if our defensemen are getting their shots through, or jumping up, and Lee's very opportunistic. He sensed that loose puck, maybe a rebound, and those are timely goals for us. Usually when your defense is scoring, you're having a good game."

U-M Fifth-year Senior Goaltender Shawn Hunwick
On his improved road play as of late ... "I think with experience you're going to be able to play better in big situations. It was a big crowd tonight and Ohio State came out hard. I was able to gain experience playing in big situations in the Frozen Four and that stuff helps you go into a hostile environment and play well."

On the defense's ability to keep OSU's chances from the outside ... "If you look at Ohio State, they like to get the pucks on the net and after we got the lead I think they were shooting from a little bit further out than they would have liked. Our team was doing a tremendous job of keeping it to the outside and limiting extra chances."

U-M Junior Defenseman Lee Moffie
On how much easier it makes the defensemen's job when Hunwick plays like he tonight ... "I think it's a two-way street; helping out each other. We're trying to keep shots to the outside and when they do get good opportunities we're getting a stick on the puck and blocking shots. When we do make a mistake and there's a guy loose, Shawn's going to make up for it."
