Michigan Head Coach Red Berenson
On the game overall ... "One thing we don't have to worry about is a game tomorrow night. I think our team left everything on the ice tonight. I like their work ethic, and even though we got down in the game, I thought we played with a lot of patience and discipline and just a good overall team work ethic. Playing without (Jon) Merrill and (Kevin) Clare I thought (Brennan) Serville and (Mike) Szuma came in and did a real good job. That was huge and then to see the injured players, who didn't play last weekend, (Justin) Selman and (Andrew) Copp had really strong games. It was good to see Zach Hyman notch a goal; he has been snake bitten."

U-M Senior Forward A.J. Treais
On three-rebound goal ... "I don't know [if I've needed three rebounds before], but I'll take it. I was playing pass with that goalie's pads for a while and I finally got one to go in."

On difference between first and second periods ... "I think it was just a matter of the puck going in. I think what's good about this team is that when we go down a goal, everybody knows we're not out of the game. We just stick to the plan and things start going our way. If you put 56 shots on the net, you know some of them are going to go in."

On Bentley goalie Branden Komm ... "He was a good goalie. I have played against him my whole life, so it was just a matter of keeping at it and getting more shots on net and getting guys in the paint. Eventually, the puck started going in."

U-M Sophomore Forward Zach Hyman
On scoring first goal of the season ... "I guess after that semi-breakaway that I had it was a little frustrating not to see it go in, and then I ended up getting a bounce later on in that shift. It was pretty satisfying."

On importance of playing well tonight ... "I was a scratch last week, and I guess it lit a little bit of a fire under my butt. I had to play a better game than I did the week before, and I think I did that. Coach expects all the players to play well at both ends of the ice -- defensively and offensively -- and I think I did that tonight."
