>Game #27 – Miami v. Western Michigan


#1 Miami held serve at home Friday night with the RedHawks knocking off CCHA basement dweller, Western Michigan 4-1. Four different Hawks scored goals for Miami while Cody Reichard delivered another outstanding performance in net making 18 saves as Miami dominated the shots on goal category outshooting Western 43-19. Miami retains its 7 point lead in the CCHA standings as Michigan State defeated Michigan 3-2.

Defensemen Cameron Schilling and Chris Wideman staked the Hawks to a 2-0 lead before Western’s Luke Witkowski would capitalize on a powerplay to pull the Broncos to within one early in the second period. However, Miami would receive goals from Reilly Smith and Carter Camper to ice the game.

Miami and Western Michigan return to the ice at 5pm this evening. The game will be televised on FSN Detroit as part of it’s doubleheader coverage of “Hockey Day in Michigan.” Miami head coach Enrico Blasi and the RedHawk program were followed yesterday by an FSN camera crew and they will be featured on “CCHA All-Access” on FSN Detroit immediately following the game. The late game will feature Michigan State and Michigan from Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, Mich.
