Michigan-Boston hockey preview
Michigan (21-14-3) is entering its first NCAA Tournament since 2015-16, and its 37th ever, which is tied with Minnesota for most all-time. The Wolverines have won a Division I record nine national championships.
The Wolverines made it to the Big Ten Tournament semifinal before falling to Ohio State, 3-2, in overtime. The teams were tied at 1 after two periods, and after both Ohio State and Michigan scored in the third, Buckeyes senior forward Matthew Weis scored the game-winner 32 seconds into overtime. The Buckeyes went on to lose to Notre Dame in the conference championship game.
Now the Wolverines look to claim a 10th national title.
“I’m extremely proud of them,” Michigan coach Mel Pearson said. “They’ve done a lot of heavy lifting. We had to improve on some areas — it started with our goaltending. We got good goaltending down the stretch. We had some of our younger players step forward and are getting a lot of contributions from different players. … Once you get in, anything is possible. I’m extremely proud of these guys, especially since they stuck together.”
Michigan earned a No. 2 seed in the Northeast regional and will play No. 4-seed Boston University in the quarterfinals. Boston University defeated No. 1-seed Cornell 3-1 to get to the quarterfinal round.
With the Wolverines’ berth, Pearson has become the the first coach to lead two different programs to NCAA Tournament appearances in consecutive years; he took Michigan Tech to the tournament last season.
Pearson and the Wolverines aren’t content with merely participating, though. Michigan is one of the most decorated hockey programs in Division I history, with a 52-29 record in the tournament all-time.
If Michigan beats Boston University, the Wolverines will go to their first Frozen Four since 2011. In the 2011 postseason, Michigan lost to Minnesota-Duluth in the national championship game, 3-2 in overtime. That Frozen Four took place in St. Paul, Minn., as will this year’s Frozen Four.
Junior forward Cooper Marody leads Michigan with 48 points (16 goals, 32 assists). Marody scored two goals — including the game-winner — in the Wolverines’ first-round matchup against No. 3 Northeastern.
