ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Western Michigan’s six-game winning streak came to an end as the Broncos fell to Michigan, -0, at Yost Ice Arena on Saturday night.
Frank Slubowski was spectacular in net, making 31 saves for the Broncos but the team was unable to generate a goal against Wolverine goalie Adam Janecyk, who earned his first career win on the night.
It took until the third period for either team to score and the Wolverines drew first blood at 1:18 in the final stanza. The Wolverines had a four-on-two rush and the first two attempts were blocked by Garrett Haar but the puck bounced to Brennan Serville and he found the net for his first career goal.
Jacob Trouba gave the Wolverines a 2-0 lead with power play goal at 7:31. A pass meant for A.J. Treais was deflected to Trouba and the freshman defenseman fired it into the net for his fifth goal of the season.
Western Michigan is off until Dec. 29 when they head to the Great Lakes Invitational to battle Michigan State at 3:35 p.m. on Saturday afternoon.
