Diagnosing the Michigan hockey team’s identity has become nearly impossible.
Are the Wolverines a team that can erase three-goal leads at the snap of a finger? Or are they a team that will allow three-plus goals in a single period? What about nights where the nation’s top offense can muster only one goal against a much-lesser opponent in Dartmouth?
No one really knows the anatomy of the Wolverines (2-1-1-1 Big Ten, 9-3-3 overall). Even this far into the season. And not much is clearer after Michigan’s 3-2 loss to Minnesota on Saturday.
