Feb. 10, 2006
ANN ARBOR--The Lake Superior State hockey team sailed past the University of Michigan Friday night by winning 3-2 in overtime at Yost Ice Arena for its first victory over the Wolverines since March of 2002 in the playoffs.
Laker captain Steve McJannet silenced the U-M crowd when he put his team in the lead at 6:28 of the first period. McJannet scored his sixth goal of the season on a pass from Jeff Rainville. Defenseman Kory Scoran also assisted on the goal.
Michigan's Jason Dest revived the crowd at 10:40 of the first period when he scored just his second goal of the season, tying the game 1-1. Danny Fardig and Tyler Swystun assisted on the goal.
T.J. Hensick gave the Wolverines (17-11-3 overall, 12-8-3 Central Collegiate Hockey Association) their first lead of the game at 12:52. Kevin Porter assisted on the goal.
The Wolverines entered the second period with a one-man advantage over the Lakers (15-8-6, 11-8-4). U-M failed to score on two power-play opportunities of the period.
LSSU junior forward Trent Campbell tied the game at two at 9:19 of the second period. Campbell's eleventh goal of the season set up by a brilliant pass from freshman Troy Schwab and junior Dominic Osman.
The Lakers and the Wolverines ended the second period tied at two.
Despite the Lakers outplaying the Wolverines in the third period, the two teams ended regulation in a 2-2 stalemate.
LSSU and U-M battled back and forth during the first two and half minutes of overtime.
LSSU senior defenseman Kory Scoran threaded the needle to McJannet, who rifled a shot past Michigan goaltender Noah Ruden to score the game-winning goal with 1:59 left in overtime.
This was the first win over the Wolverines for any of the current Laker players. LSSU also snapped a 10-game losing streak against U-M that included six straight losses at Yost.
The Wolverines outshot the Lakers, 38-36. The Lakers were 0-for-2 on the power play, while U-M finished 0-for-4.
McJannet was named the Perani Cup first star of the game and Jakaitis was the second star.
The Lakers and Wolverines will meet again Saturday night at 7:35 p.m. in Ann Arbor at Yost Ice Arena. The game will be televised on FSN Detroit.
