Yesterday, I released the video for the Michigan Wolverines 3-1 victory in the first game of the two-game series against the winless Nittany Lions. After that game, one might thing that game two would be more of the same. I was likely with you in that assumption. Instead, Michigan left Pennsylvania with a split series and a game 2 loss of 9-5.
How exactly did Penn State get to NINE goals against Michigan? After all, Michigan had given up a total of ten goals in their first seven games, so nine within one was quite the shocker. Michigan had a healthy dose of penalties, poor goaltending, and an out of character Strauss Mann. Eventually, Mann was pulled for the young-gun Erik Portillo, but that was past the point of the game looking conceivable for the Wolverines.
