Red Berenson returns to his first hockey home for Michigan's NCAA tournament
Michigan hockey coach Red Berenson is back in St. Louis for today's 5:30 p.m. NCAA tournament game against Nebraska-Omaha.
Just three weeks ago, Berenson and four other St. Louis Blues who wore the No. 7 jersey "with distinction" were honored outside the Scottrade Center, where the Wolverines will play their NCAA West Regional.
"It's out of our hands where you end up playing," Berenson told reporters Thursday. "I was hoping down deep that our team could come back here and have some success. So here we are, we've got to prove it."
Friday's game will be shown live on Comcast Local (channel 900) in Southeast Michigan and ESPN3.com will provide a free live web stream. It will be shown on tape-day at 11:30 p.m. on ESPNU.
