Huggins makes a save on a Mercier partial breakaway. But in the ensuing scramble, Palmquist gets called for a penalty.
Bowling Green doesn't last long on the power play, though, as Williamson called for hooking on a short-handed chance by MSU
Final minute of the period
Period is over. Third period will start with 23 seconds of 4x4 before a short PP for MSU
That's too bad, VoR. I really like Jeff.
I can't use the word crowd to describe attendance today. A smattering of ticket holders, perhaps.
Second period is underway
Leitner tripped. No call. BG player's blade stayed stuck in Leitner's skates for several seconds..
Both teams are back to full strength. I wish they'd announce it.
Another big save by Huggins. Both goalies have been solid.
Alaska, Huntsville and Sault Ste. Marie make that tough, Jeff. I would have had no problem if they'd said Mankato and Bemidji are going to be the host buildings until a better solution can be found.
And there's a beautiful goal for MSU with the top line. Grant finishes the play from Leitner and Gervais
There's a huge video screen here but they didn't show the replay of the goal.
VoR, before the game they tested the horn and warned the building first as not to scare anyone.
Not a bad idea. I think they'd have to swallow some pride to go to a rink that size, a place where the MIAC has held playoffs in the past.
Unfortunate icing for Bowling Green as Williamson loses an edge and tumbles backwards as the puck slides by at the red line
Jutzi puts one on net there. Thru traffic. Good stop by Burke
Ice does not appear to be very good.
9:51 left in the second. MSU leads 1-0. Shots are 19-18 for Mavs.
There is a pretty enthusiastic group of Bowling Green fans here. About 20 bunched together.
