The Wolverines jumped out to a 2-0 lead on goals from Luke Moffatt and Derek DeBlois 20 seconds apart in the first period.
Michigan went on to lead 4-1, before LSSU climbed back to make it a 5-4 game with 1:26 left. But forward Alex Guptill notched the empty-net goal with 34 seconds left.
Moffatt finished with a game-high two goals. DeBlois, Guptill, Jacob Trouba and Phil DiGiuseppe had Michigan's other goals. Dexter native Andrew Sinelli finished with two assists.
Junior Adam Janecyk started in goal, recording 29 saves.
