Two things, CCHA fans:
1. A big apology to Ryan Dzingel, who is clearly not Danny Dzingel, as I originally wrote in today’s column. Dzingel is a freshman forward for Ohio State. I am a middle-aged columnist-slash-teacher living in Flint. I hope that clears things up.
2. There’s a game tonight, so there must be a pick.
St. Lawrence at Michigan, Thursday only, 7:35 p.m.
The Saints — a sentimental favorite of mine — were swept by Ferris State in Big Rapids last weekend, 4-2 and 5-1. Sophomore Matt Weninger was in net for the Friday game, senior Robby Moss for Saturday’s loss. Three different SLU players netted their first goals of the season in the series.
UM has played and won three games since Oct. 4, outscoring opponents 14-2 so far this season. Last weekend, it was a home sweep of Bentley. There are five Wolverines with two goals each, and senior Shawn Hunwick has great early numbers: .070 goals against average and .972 save percentage.
Michigan has seven straight wins against St. Lawrence. The Wolverines and Saints last played Oct. 10-11, 2008, in Ann Arbor; UM swept 4-3 and 5-3.
Pick: UM 4-2
