Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
Hockey: Michigan Advances
Dominating victory for Michigan today, winning 3-1 in a game that was scoreless until about the halfway point when Brandon Kaleniecki scorched a bullet past Wylie Rogers. Jeff Tambellini followed that up at the end of the second with a "where-who-what-how?" shot that was past Rogers before he even knew it had left Tamby's stick. Michigan outshot UAF 44-15-ish. Rogers played out of his mind or this oculd have been another 10-1 annihilation.
The lone moment of concern was the UAF goal. A horrific unforced Nick Martens turnover sent a Nanook in on Montoya. Montoya unwisely attempted a poke check, missed it, and conceded his now-familiar weak five-hole goal. He was largely a spectator for the rest of the game.
Michigan plays the winner of MSU-OSU tomorrow.
