Air Force Junior Andrew Volkening shuts out stunned Michigan
An amazing performance from Air Force and Junior goalie Andrew Volkening as they have shut out Michigan 2-0 in the first game of the NCAA tournament! In fact this improbably win came as Volkening’s third consecutive shutout running up a string of 218 minutes now without allowing a goal.
Shots on goal – UM 43-AF 13

Michigan falls to Air Force in opening round of NCAA Tournament from Michigan Daily
Air Force beats Michigan 2-0 for first-ever NCAA hockey win from Colorado Springs Gazette who wrote:
“Had it not been for goalie Andrew Volkening, however, the Falcons would be heading home with their season over. While Air Force managed just 13 shots, Michigan poured 43 on Volkening – more than he had seen in any game this season.
But the 6-foot-2 junior was unbeatable, turning away every shot he faced – including many on Michigan’s seven failed power plays – and recording his third consecutive shutout.”
