Game Recap

Kaleniecki Helps Wolverines To Sweep, 5-1

Saturday, October 19, 2002

Ann Arbor, Mich. -- Brandon Kaleniecki netted a pair of goals to lead No. 6 Michigan (3-1-0) to a 5-1 victory over Merrimack (0-2-1) in front of 6,430 at Yost Ice Arena.

Freshman Derek Kilduff scored the lone goal for Merrimack and Joe Exter made 31 saves as the Warriors were swept in their first trip to Ann Arbor, MI. For a second straight night, the Warriors were whistled for 13 penalties and Michigan took advantage, scoring a pair of power play goals in the win.

Dwight Helminen got the Wolverines started 3:37 into the game, netting his first of the year with an assist going to Jeff Tambellini. Kaleniecki followed with his first of the season, giving the Wolverines a two-goal lead at the 13:15 mark of the first period directly off a face-off won by David Moss. The sophomore directed the draw straight left to Kaleniecki, who immediately beat Exter with a wrist shot. As they did on Friday night, the Wolverines dominated play early, going into the first break with a 13-3 advantage in shots.

Moss connected with Kaleniecki again 1:51 into the second period. With 20 seconds remaining on Michigan's fifth power play of the game, Moss carried the puck up the left boards before sliding it across the crease to Kaleniecki.

Defenseman Danny Richmond put the Wolverines up 4-0 at the 4:05 mark when his shot deflected off the skate of a Merrimack defenseman and went between the pads of Exter. Forty-five seconds later Andrew Ebbett blasted a slapshot over the left shoulder of Exter, giving the Wolverines a comfortable five-goal cushion after two periods.

Kilduff scored the first goal of his career at 6:35 of the third period. The freshman carried the puck into the Michigan zone, releasing a shot just after crossing the blue line that beat Montoya on his glove side.

Michigan finished 2-for-9 on the power play while the Warriors went 0-for-6.

Merrimack opens Hockey East play Tuesday, October 22 at home against Boston University.
