Michigan, Nagelvoort combine to blank No. 12 Ohio State

  Zach Nagelvoort came up huge with a 42-save shutout in Columbus.

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The University of Michigan ice hockey team defeated Ohio State, 1-0, to split the weekend Big Ten series on Saturday night (Feb. 25) at Value City Arena.

Michigan got on the board first at the 9:39 mark of the opening period when freshman forward Nick Pastujov deflected a Niko Porikos shot for the first goal in his collegiate career.

In the second period of play, both teams had opportunities on the power play but were unable to capitalize on the man advantage. The Wolverines earned a power play after OSU's Christian Lampasso was called for interference at the 5:48 mark. Despite holding the puck in the offensive zone for the majority of the two minutes, Michigan was unable to sneak one by Buckeye netminder Christian Frey.

The Wolverines withstood 20 shots from the hosts in the final period to hold on for the 1-0 victory.

Senior goalkeeper Zach Nagelvoort registered a season-high 42 saves while registering his fourth career shutout.

With the win, Michigan improves to 81-38-13 all-time in the series against Ohio State.

The Maize and Blue will host Minnesota next weekend (March 3-4) in its second-to-last regular-season series. Earlier in the year, Michigan dropped a pair of games to the Gophers in Minneapolis, 5-2 and 4-2.
