The Michigan Wolverines men's hockey team came up short against the Cornell Big Red, 5-1 in the Frozen Apple game played at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

A night after Michigan's men's basketball team won the NIT Tip-Off Tourney by beating Kansas State at MSG, the Wolverines hockey team fell behind the Big Red and were never able to recover in the game played before a sell-out crowd at the Garden.

After Michigan failed to score on several power play opportunities in the first period, Cornell's Joel Lowry scored a power-play goal giving the Big Red a 1-0 lead at the end of the first period.

Cornell took control in the second period with a pair of goals. Teemu Tiitinen and Greg Miller scored the goals for the Big Red to extend Cornell's lead heading into the final period. Miller also scored the final goal of the game for Cornell.

Michigan finally put a shot in the net in the third period when Mac Bennett scored his fourth goal of the season. Jacob Trouba and Andrew Sinelli assisted on Michigan's only score.

The win improved Cornell's record to 4-3-2 overall while Michigan dropped to 5-7-1 on the season.
