Michigan 5 – Penn State 2


================================================================================

Less than twenty-four hours after the nine-time NCAA men’s ice hockey champions had suffered one of the most embarrassing defeats by shutout on home ice in the school’s storied history, the hosts bounced back decisively with a strong defensive effort of its own in the return match as the # 10 ranked MICHIGAN WOLVERINES saw off the visiting PENN STATE NITTANY LIONS 5-2 to at least salvage a humbling split of the two-game Big Ten Conference weekend series in Ann Arbor.

After swooping in to receive the fancy, behind-the-back and through-the-legs feed from Wolverines linemate ANDREW COPP (18), opportunistic Michigan left wing TYLER MOTTE (foreground), the 18-year-old homegrown freshman from St. Clair who was the fourth round choice (# 121 overall) of the Stanley Cup champion Chicago Black Hawks at the 2013 National Hockey League Draft last summer, fires the puck past Penn State goaltender MATTHEW SKOFF (31) in the eighth minute of the Big Ten Conference men’s ice hockey match at the sold out Yost Ice Arena in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
