Through one game against Vermont and two exhibition games, this season’s initial impressions are much of the same — Michigan has given up at least four goals in each game, and has allowed scores on five of 10 opposing power plays.
As senior right wing Will Lockwood glided around the right circle at the 3:30 mark of the second period, there was a moment, albeit a brief one, where there was nothing but clear ice between he and his second goal of the game.
Lockwood sized up the puck and hesitated, but by the time he was ready to shoot, the Catamounts had already taken possession. Once again, Vermont had pulled the rug out from under the No. 4 Michigan hockey team.
With the season on the line, the Michigan softball team stepped up and delivered a dominant performance against University of Illinois-Chicago and it all started with one person: freshman lefty Meghan Beaubien.
