Friday night, the Wolverines put the game away in the third.
Michigan scored four goals in the final 20 minutes to pull away from RIT, 7-2 Friday night at Yost Ice Arena, and salvage a weekend split with the Tigers.
The Wolverines recorded goals from seven different players. Phil Di Giuseppe and A.J. Treais each recorded a goal and an assist. Freshman defenseman Jacob Trouba recorded his second goal in as many nights, and fellow freshman Cristoval "Boo" Nieves recorded two assists.
Freshman Steve Racine made his Michigan debut in net, recording 19 saves on 21 shots. He took over for Jared Rutledge, who started Thursday's game and gave up five goals.
Michigan never trailed, but led by just one following an RIT goal at 5:18 of the third period.
Treais recorded a goal less than a minute later, and the Wolverines tacked on three more in less than six minutes to secure the win.
Lee Moffie, Andrew Sinelli, Travis Lynch and Lindsay Sparks had the other markers for the Wolverines.
Michigan will host Bentley next Friday at Yost.
