Michigan scored four goals in the third period to highlight a 7-2 win over Rensselaer Institute of Technology on Friday in Ann Arbor.

RIT defeated the third-ranked Wolverines 5-4 in overtime Oct. 10, but Michigan (1-1) slammed the door on another comeback opportunity, getting even-strength goals from A.J. Treais, Andrew Sinelli and Lindsay Sparks, and a power-play goal from Jacob Trouba, in the third period.

The Wolverines got two points each from Treais, Phil Di Giuseppe, Cristoval Nieves and Derek DeBlois in their first win of the season.

Steve Racine made 21 saves in the victory. Jeff Smith had two goals for RIT.

The Wolverines led 2-0 after the first period, owning a 19-5 shots on goal advantage over the Tigers. Smith scored his second goal to pull RIT within 3-2 in the third, but Michigan took control of the game for good after that.
