It's a Michigan hockey team tradition to sing "The Victors" in the locker room after sweeping a series. Earlier in the season, Michigan coach Red Berenson joked that he might forget the words during this season.

Berenson got a refresher course on Saturday as the Wolverines defeated Ohio State 6-3 in Columbus. It was the second sweep of the season for the Wolverines, who swept Michigan State earlier this month.

Phil Di Giuseppe had a pair of goals and Alex Guptill scored one -- his third of the series -- in the win. Steve Racine picked up the win in net for the Wolverines (12-18-2, 8-15-2-2 CCHA), who entered the third period tied with Ohio State 3-3.

Nice job fellas but a little late to the party. I would love to be confident that you can win the CCHA tourney but based on performance this season it is unlikely.
