Michigan Hockey Stunns Denver 3-2 Cold Club Semifinals

BOSTAN – It did not turn into a shootout that many expected. For three periods it failed to resolve.

But Michigan hockey’s chance to play in the next national championship ended where Wolverine won last, 24 years ago.

Carter Savoy regained the rebound of his strike, which was initially saved by UM goalkeeper Eric Partila with a score of 5:07 left in overtime, and gave Denver a 3-2 victory on Thursday night at Frozen Four at TD Garden.

“I just told them that one game doesn’t define who they are hockey players or people,” Michigan coach Mel Pearson said. “There were a lot of expectations from this group and they exceeded those expectations and then coped so well with all that pressure.”
