Freshman goaltender Strauss Mann let in five goals as Michigan fell to Wisconsin in overtime.

MADISON –– With the score tied at four apiece in the first overtime period and a power play about to begin, the Michigan hockey team had a prime opportunity to clinch home ice in the first round of the Big Ten tournament.

Instead, the Wolverines failed to convert on the power play and seconds after the man-advantage ended, Wisconsin forward Sean Dhooghe had a breakaway opportunity. He finished on his opportunity to give Wisconsin a 5-4 victory in overtime. Now, Michigan will need to win on Saturday, in its last game of the regular season, to secure Big Ten Tournament games at Yost Ice Arena.

A mental lapse by everyone on the ice for Michigan resulted in the breakaway for Jobst when he exited the penalty box. He capitalized on the opportunity finishing past Mann on the breakaway to give the Buckeyes (19-8-5 overall, 12-6-4-3 Big Ten) a 4-3 victory.

Nick Pastujov has put forth career-high numbers in goals and points this season – notching 10 and 20, respectively.

Pastujov has quietly put together his most complete season to date. So quietly that Michigan coach Mel Pearson was unaware of his current goal-scoring drought – one that dates back to the championship game of the Great Lakes Invitational Tournament.

Sophomore forward Michael Pastujov learned from his time on the bench, and has supplied five goals for the Michigan hockey team since his return on Jan. 24.

There are few things that resonate more with an athlete than being benched.

It is a cut and dried message, forcing the player to do some self-reflecting while becoming an observer to the game. And it is one that Michigan coach Mel Pearson recently delivered to sophomore forward Michael Pastujov.

He sprinted up the right wing with no one to beat but goaltender Drew DeRidder. As he curled in toward the slot, the freshman went forehand, backhand and fired into the top of the net to push the lead to 3-0.

The goal from Moyle would prove to be the difference maker for the Michigan hockey team who went on to win 5-2.

Junior forward Jake Slaker is tied for second on the Wolverines with 10 goals, tied for third with 10 assists and is third with 20 points.

As Slaker and the rest of Michigan have their sights set on making an NCAA Tournament appearance for the second consecutive season, there is likely another thing that looms in the back of the minds many Wolverine skaters: their path to the NHL.

The Michigan hockey team needs more than a sweep against Minnesota this weekend.

If Michigan hopes to make an NCAA Tournament appearance, it will need to begin coming out of weekends with more than three points.

The Wolverines can start by sweeping the Gophers, who are in third place –– three points ahead of Michigan –– in the Big Ten standings. By picking up their first sweep, the Wolverines will leave the company of Penn State as the only Big Ten teams without one.

Senior defenseman Joseph Cecconi lost his footing, allowing a breakaway that led to a Penn State goal in Michigan's 5-2 loss.

Saturday’s 5-2 loss at Madison Square Garden was in complete contrast to the near perfect defensive performance put forth on Thursday by the Wolverines.

It was a tale of defensive gaffes.

Thursday, January 24, 2019 - 11:45pm
Junior forward Will Lockwood scored in the second period to help lift the Wolverines.

All it took was 52 seconds.

At the end of that stretch, the game was effectively over. The Michigan hockey team drained any momentum Penn State had left, scoring three goals in under a minute to extend its lead to 4-0 with 5:47 remaining in the second period.
