Michigan Head Coach Red Berenson
On the game ... "I thought we got lucky in the first period. I can't tell you we were better than they were, but the puck went in for us. Our power play scored two, and then we scored the shorthanded goal. It was a period of special teams. In the second period, we were on our heels for the entire period. I didn't like the way we played, and they really came after us. And then the third period was anyone's period. We were playing with a one-goal lead, and we didn't give them much in the third period, and probably it was our best period of the game."

On the special teams' goals ... "There weren't many penalties in the game, but it turned out in our favor, and we'll take it."

U-M Junior Defenseman Jon Merrill
On Steve Racine's play recently ... "We've been kind of unsure all year about goaltending, and now it's good to have somebody back there who's got some confidence in him, and he's stepping up and playing pretty well."

U-M Senior Forward Kevin Lynch
On the game ... "We found out tonight that no matter how big of a lead you have early, you're not safe."
