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.

Junior forward Evan Allen skates after a Robert Morris player during Michigan's 4-0 loss October 31.

It has been the same old story for the Michigan hockey team. Not the one where it scores five goals a game, but the one where it has multiple defensive breakdowns.

And unlike previous games, the offense couldn’t bail out its sloppy defensive play.

Saturday, in their series finale against Robert Morris, the 10th-ranked Wolverines fell to Robert Morris, 4-0.  Most of the Colonials’ chances stemmed from defensive breakdowns that led to multiple odd-man rushes and grade-A scoring chances.
