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.
