After a scoreless first, Michigan received two quick goals by Andrew Copp (one shorthanded) to take a 2-0 in front of a large Michigan crowd. Not too long later Luke Moffatt made it 3-0 Michigan before captain A.J. Treais stretched the lead to 4-0 chasing Miami goaltender Ryan McKay.

Alex Guptill would add the last two Michigan tallies in the third ensuring the Wolverine victory.

U-M goaltender Steve Racine made 33 saves in the win while as a team Michigan accounted for 27 total shots.

On the power play Michigan was 1 for 6 while Miami was 1 for 5.
