Miami-U-M matchup is No. 1 vs. No. 2
David Goricki / The Detroit News
Michigan will be going after the No. 1 national ranking and CCHA lead when they play Miami (Ohio) in a weekend series in Oxford, beginning tonight.
This is the first meeting between the teams this season.
Michigan (22-3-3, 15-2-3, ranked No. 2) trails top-ranked Miami (25-3, 17-3) by one point.
Michigan held the No. 1 spot until losing to Michigan State 1-0 at Yost on Jan. 25, ending a nine-game winning streak. It was the Wolverines' first loss since Nov. 30.
Now, U-M will attempt to win its first game since Jan. 19. It tied MSU in East Lansing on Jan. 26 and Northern Michigan twice last weekend, giving it three straight ties for the first time in school history.
U-M and Miami will match two of the nation's top goal scorers and top goaltenders.
Michigan senior Kevin Porter (Northville) leads the nation in goals (23) and points (42). Miami senior Ryan Jones has 22 goals, including a nation-leading seven winners.
Miami junior Jeff Zatkoff (Clinton Township Chippewa Valley), a third-round pick of the Los Angeles Kings in the 2006 NHL entry draft, leads the nation in goals-against-average (1.50) and save percentage (.937) with junior Billy Sauer of U-M right behind (1.72, .935).
Tonight's game (8 p.m.) will be televised by CSTV with Saturday's game (7:30 p.m.) televised by FSN Detroit.
The Wolverines were swept by the Redhawks two years ago. The teams split the two-game series last season.
Michigan State, which trails Miami by three points, plays at Northern Michigan tonight and Saturday.
