The Wolverines came up just short of a weekend sweep against their rivals from Ohio, as Michigan and Ohio State played to a 3-3 tie Saturday evening at Yost Ice Arena. The tie comes one night after the Wolverines recorded a 4-2 victory over the Buckeyes on Friday. Despite OSU earning an extra point with a shootout win (and a B1G regular-season title), the weekend gave crucial points to the Wolverines. Michigan now needs just one point in their regular-season closing series with Wisconsin next weekend to secure home ice in the Big Ten quarterfinals.
Michigan said ‘thank you’ to seniors Nick Boka, Brendan Warren and captain Joe Cecconi in a ‘Maize Out’ Senior Night at Yost. Cecconi scored the middle goal for the Wolverines, while Nick Blankenburg and Nolan Moyle also scored in the contest. (Photos by Andrew Knapik/MiHockey)
