BIG RAPIDS - Western Michigan silenced the crowd in Ewigleben Ice Arena with a second goal to quickly follow its first near the midway point of the second period.
J.J. Crew was credited with the second goal of the game as he scored off an assist from Patrick Nagorsen at the 9:30 mark of the middle period.
The crowd in the Ewigleben Ice Arena which had some energy, early in the game, has some of that wind knocked out of its sails as the Broncos seized a 2-0 lead.
Western, which entered the game with a record of 3-12-5 overall has looked like a far better squad than that in the second half.
