Call it shock therapy. After then-No. 6 Boston University gouged then-No. 5 Michigan for five power-play goals Saturday, the coaching staff has pulled out the defibrillator to revive the Wolverine penalty kill.

You could hear the deflation in sophomore defenseman Tristin Llewellyn’s voice as he tried to put the No. 5 Michigan hockey team’s 7-2 embarrassment into words. “Somebody shot your dog — it’s that type of feeling,” said Llewellyn, who was on the ice for two of No. 6 BU’s five power-play goals.

BY MICHAEL EISENSTEIN
