Ohio State is a very good hockey team.

The Buckeyes are ranked sixth in the nation in both the USCHO and USA Today polls, and fourth in Pairwise. They’re 11th nationally in scoring and fourth in goals against. Their power play percentage is better than that of all but seven teams, and their penalty kill is second to none. They’ve won 23 games, lost eight and tied five.

The Michigan hockey team defeated Michigan State, 3-2, Friday night to claim the Iron D Trophy.

DETROIT, Mich. — Over the last two months, Hayden Lavigne has asserted himself as Michigan’s starting goaltender, and has often had to stand on his head to bail out his team.

Saturday night, it was Joseph Cecconi’s turn.

With under three minutes to play and the Wolverines leading Michigan State, 3-2, Spartan forward Cody Milan jumped on a rebound after two Lavigne saves and sent the puck towards the net with the sophomore goaltender out of position.

The adage “three strikes and you’re out” may have originated with baseball, but it works fairly well in hockey too.

One minute into Saturday’s game, Michigan defenseman Sam Piazza motored around to the left circle, where his shot rebounded off of Kyle Hayton’s pads. The puck then bounced to a wide-open Cooper Marody with the Wisconsin goaltender nowhere near the play. Marody, a Hobey Baker Award nominee, normally puts away chances like those in his sleep. His attempt flew past Hayton — and the pipe.
