Quote from Jeff Jackson
(Michigan) They are probably as talented a team as I can ever remember in Michigan. From top to bottom, each position they are loaded. That is the biggest challenge their depth. They have four good lines in the front, and they’re not all that different in the back. They are as close a team as they are in college hockey.
(Keys to Win) You need to do a good job of staying disciplined as their power play is exceptional. You have to try hard to manage the puck because they are very good at transitioning. Those are important factors for us to stay out of the penalty area, to play with discipline, short shifts to handle the puck well.
(His team) were playing very well now. We have to get in there and play our game. We’ve gotten better since the Minnesota series. We have improved defensively. That was a big factor, especially against Wisconsin. We started to see some progress in the power play, but I don’t think we were over the bump yet.
