The Michigan Wolverines hockey team is legit. I thought they had something last week after the sweep of the Arizona State squad in victories of 8-1 and 3-0. However, the football team fandom has bled over, remembering the first and subsequently only win of the season against a Minnesota squad that was solid last year, but turned out to be bad this season.

Though Wisconsin started the first game of the series hot, pulling to a 1-0 lead and putting on tons of pressure throughout the 2nd period, Michigan found their comfort zone and it led to 3 goals after 40 minutes.
