MINNEAPOLIS — Mel Pearson preached discipline throughout the week. After Friday’s game against Minnesota, the Michigan coach preached it even more.
“We have to stay out the penalty box,” Pearson said after Friday’s 4-2 win over the Golden Gophers. “Most of our penalties were not saving goals. They were all down in the far end, in our offensive zone, so we have to clean that up.”
Despite the emphasis on clean play, the Michigan hockey team failed to execute, and it cost them in a 4-3 loss to Minnesota on Saturday.
