OT Win Puts Michigan Past Wisconsin

Michigan Wolverines

A slick backhand from freshman Thomas Bordeleau in OT gave Michigan the win over Wisconsin Friday night. Michigan, now 4-0, took the win in the five-minute, three-on-three overtime – a new NCAA format this season.

The number 38 overall pick by the San Jose Sharks, Bordeleau’s toe-drag had the puck around the defenseman and sniped one past goalie Robbie Beydoun with a slick backhand for a 2-1 victory in Madison.

The Wolverines took five of the six Big Ten points in the two-game sweep over the Badgers (2-2) and are 4-0 for the first time since the 2011-12 season.

The team’s highly regarded freshman class continues to lead the way offensively. Forwards Kent Johnson and Matty Beniers, both projected top-15 NHL draft picks next year, each assisted on sophomore Nick Granowicz’s goal that tied the game at the 13:59 mark of the second period. Johnson is tied with Bordeleau for the team lead with seven points, while Beniers has five points.
