The University of Michigan Ice Hockey Team beat Northern Michigan 2-1 in the CCHA Tournament Championship Game, Saturday at Joe Louis Arena, to win the tournament for the 9th time in the program’s history and also secure a seed in the NCAA National Tournament – a goal that seemed to have slipped through the Wolverines’ grasp not all that long ago. Junior centerman Louie Caporusso scored both of Michigan’s goals on the night and goalie Shawn Hunwick again came up huge at key moments to continue an amazing story in net.
Michigan is playing as well as anyone in the country right now and at just the right time. The national tournament seeds will be announced tomorrow, making the tournament appearance official. That’s now 20 consecutive appearances in the tournament – simply amazing. Hail to the Victors! Michigan is again, the champs!
