Western Michigan Wins 2-0 on Friday Night Over Miami

Western Michigan's 2-0 win moved the Broncos into first place in the CCHA.

Despite missing three key players, including two defenseman, Western Michigan was able to hold the potent offense of Miami scoreless, and win 2-0 on their home ice on Friday night, to pass the RedHawks and regain first place in the CCHA.

Western Michigan opened the scoring early at 3:31 of the first period when defenseman Jordan Oesterle fired the puck towards the net, through traffic, and it trickled past Miami goalie Jay Williams. Chase Balisy added a second goal as insurance in the third period. Western Michigan goalie Frank Slubowski was strong throughout, stopping 32 Miami shots. Jay Williams made 21 saves for Miami, including stopping a Mike Leone penalty shot in the second period.

The Broncos should get a boost tomorrow evening when Dennis Brown and Justin Kovacs return from one-game suspensions.They'll come into the game with a two point lead over the RedHawks, and a chance to take a commanding lead in the CCHA standings with another win.
