Michigan hockey shuts out Ferris State, 4-0, for weekend sweep

By Staff

The Michigan hockey team said it was going into its series against red-hot Ferris State with an underdog mentality.

When it ended, the No. 4-ranked Wolverines had a pair of decisive wins and their seventh-ranked visitors had their first two losses of the season.

Michigan scored three second-period goals for the second straight night and senior goaltender Shawn Hunwick made 24 saves in a 4-0 shutout win over the Bulldogs in front of 5,711 fans at Yost Ice Arena on Friday night.

"When we put our mind to it and score goals, we can play with anybody,” Hunwick told “They had only given up five goals coming in. It was a huge to get confidence offensively and it was huge to only give up two goals against."

The Wolverines beat Ferris State 5-2 on Thursday night.

Travis Lynch and A.J. Treais scored goals 102 seconds apart early in the second period to give the Wolverines (6-1-1, 2-1-1-1 CCHA) a 3-0 lead and some breathing room against the Bulldogs (6-2-0, 2-2-0-0).

Chris Brown scored the game’s final goal late in the second period. Alex Guptill opened the scoring with his first collegiate goal at the 5:38-mark of the first period.

Ferris State went 0-for-7 on power play opportunities. Michigan was 0-for-4.

Michigan hosts another CCHA series next weekend, facing Western Michigan on Friday and Saturday night at Yost. Both games start at 7:35 p.m.
