Frozen Diamond Faceoff Score Update: Michigan Takes 4-1 Lead Into 3rd Period

The first part of the second period of the Frozen Diamond Faceoff was all Ohio State. The Buckeyes scored just 50 seconds into the period, and they were carrying the play. Then, halfway through the second, Michigan flipped the momentum and took back control of the outdoor game with two quick goals, making it 4-1 after 40 minutes of play.

Ohio State's first goal of the weekend against Michigan came on a nice feed from Max McCormick. Chris Crane put the puck past Shawn Hunwick for the first goal ever scored on him in an outdoor game. (Hunwick shut out Michigan State 5-0 in The Big Chill at the Big House last season.)

Michigan responded in a big way midway through the period. Near the halfway mark, Derek DeBlois redirected a pass from David Wohlberg into the net. The goal came after a turnover by Ohio State and once again made this a two-goal game. Then, only 28 seconds later, Wohlberg scored a goal of his own by taking the puck hard to the net. Cal Heeter simply misplayed the shot, and the puck went past him.

Ohio State decided to replace Heeter after the two quick goals. Brady Hjelle is now in net for the Buckeyes, and although he hasn't allowed a goal yet despite some close calls, Michigan has a commanding 4-1 lead with only 20 minutes to play.
