Michigan hockey outmatches Bentley in 6-3 victory

Gregory Shamus

The Wolverines moved to 2-1 during the season-opening home stand.

The Michigan Wolverines hockey team defeated the Bentley Falcons 6-3 on Friday night in front of a sell-out crowd of 5,800 fans at the Yost Ice Arena.

The No. 5 Wolverines fell behind 1-0 after one period, but an onslaught of goals in the final two periods led to the big victory. Senior forward A.J. Treais fired in a goal just 30 seconds into the second period, and scored again later that frame on assists from Phil Di Giuseppe and Mac Bennett.

Sophomore forward Alex Guptill also scored two goals in the game, both in the third period. Also scoring for Michigan were Andrew Copp and Zach Hyman. The Wolverines overwhelmed Bentley with a barrage on goal, out-shooting the Falcons 56-25 on the night.

The win moves Michigan's record to 2-1 on the young season following a split of two games with Rochester Institute of Technology. The Wolverines hit the ice next on Fri., Oct. 26 when they host the Miami Redhawks in a two-game set.
