The Michigan hockey team has chalked up its sweep to Ohio State as a learning experience for the season.

During the upcoming off-week, the Wolverines expressed that they would be working on ironing out the kinks of what fans saw as a stagnant offense and an underperforming defense.

Sophomore forward Jake Slaker admitted that Ohio State outworked the Wolverines through two games.

For two straight nights, the Wolverines had been dominated in every facet of the game and run off their home ice. They didn’t try to deny it, either.

A disappointing weekend for the Wolverines came to an end with a 5-1 loss to the Buckeyes, which followed a 3-2 defeat the night before.

Freshman forward Josh Norris scored with 15 seconds remaining, but Michigan was still down by one goal.

The 17th-ranked Wolverines conceded two goals less than a minute apart in the third period, and it cost them dearly in a 3-2 loss to No. 15 Ohio State.

Sophomore forward Nick Pastujov tallied one of Michigan’s signature comeback goals this weekend.

Such has been the storyline for the majority of the season – a firm Wolverine front that comes from behind and gives its opponents no reason to feel comfortable.

Freshman defenseman Quinn Hughes and his fellow blueliners failed to help Michigan's potent offense against Wisconsin.

Each time he commends the offense, Pearson seems to conversely critique his blueliners ability to step up in the big moments, especially when down a man.

Junior forward Cooper Marody scored the opening goal, but his shootout goal mattered more.

Fighting through a fast-paced, nail-biting overtime, the Wolverines came out alive Saturday, after taking their largest blow of the season the night before.

Senior forward Tony Calderone scored two goals Friday night, but they weren't enough to save Michigan from a blowout.

Despite finding success playing from behind last weekend against No. 7 Minnesota, the 17th-ranked Wolverines didn’t have the same fortune Friday night against No. 9 Wisconsin.

Michigan coach Mel Pearson believes the Wolverines must improve defensively against Wisconsin this weekend.

The No. 17 Michigan hockey team (2-1-1 Big Ten, 6-3-1 overall) travels to Madison to face off against No. 9 Wisconsin (2-2, 7-5-1) in the Wolverines’ second top-10 matchup in two weeks.

Junior forward Cooper Marody has notched 15 points in the last six games.

Three weeks ago, Michigan hockey coach Mel Pearson called Cooper Marody into his office for a conversation about his practice habits. Since then, the junior forward's production has soared.
