Freshman forward Boo Nieves was experiencing flu-like symptoms, and the line chart for the series finale included four skaters on Nieves’ line. In addition to usual linemates sophomore Phil Di Giuseppe and senior Kevin Lynch, senior Lindsay Sparks was included as well.

Once the game began, however, Nieves looked like his usual self. On one play in particular, he drove to the net and drew a penalty. With the man advantage, junior defenseman Mac Bennett rifled home a power-play goal.

“(Nieves) was sick, but he really played well,” Berenson said. “For a kid that was sick, he’s a pretty good player.”

Berenson said he was surprised that Boo Nieves (8G, 21A) wasn't selected to the CCHA's All-Rookie team. Nieves was given honorable mention.

The Michigan people compare Nieves to Pacioretty who was a freshman at 19. He had 15 goals and 39 points in his only season at Michigan.
