Detroit Fighting Irish goalie George Hill was stopping pucks and setting up goals on Friday.

Richard Pinkowski, Nolan Jakrzewski, Aaron Robinson, Chase Tackett and Christian Ramage all scored solo goals as Detroit held off a late Motor City surge to post the win over its arch-rivals.
Anthony Wojciechowski tallied twice to lead Motor City.
