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.

Michigan coach Mel Person emphasized that Michigan needs to break from the mentality that scoring goals is the most important aspect of games.

Mel Pearson emphasized that playing behind with three- or four-goal deficits will not be a sustainable practice moving forward.

 Fifth-year senior Alex Roos was responsible for an odd game-winning goal Friday, as Will Lockwood's shot deflected off his helmet into the net.

This weekend, all eyes turned anxiously to Ann Arbor to watch the Wolverines take on conference royalty. And the results proved that critics may have underestimated Michigan.

The Michigan hockey team celebrated after tying the game at six, but it couldn’t pull off another overtime win.

Coming off a league-shattering victory Friday against No. 4 Minnesota, Michigan had looked to complete a sweep of the top team in the Big Ten.

Fifth-year senior forward Alex Roos had the game-winning goal bounce off his head and into the net.

Following two straight weeks with devastating, come-from-behind overtime losses, the Wolverines finally overcame the overtime hump off an unconventional goal.

Junior forward Cooper Marody has combined with his front line for 24 points over the past two weekends.

A lot could go wrong this weekend for Michigan if the Golden Gophers’ scoring machine starts to churn. But a lot could also go right if the Wolverines’ system is synchronous.
