Greetings from the shores of Lake Bemidji.
Sounds like it's his back. Don't have a lot of info.
Leitner is a scratch for the first time in his college career.
Once again, the Mavericks are dressing seven defensemen. Flanagan is the LW on the fourth line.
Interesting pregame on the big screen with an interview with Serratore.
BSU starters: Walsh, Rendle, Windle, Mattson, Ward, Harms
This will be a much more physical series than we saw last weekend in Mankato, it already appears.
Scoring chance for MSU with Margonari on a rebound of a Palmquist shot. Decent save. Good work along the boards at both ends of the rink by Casey Nelson and Teddy Bluger.
First penalty of the game goes against BSU. Tripping on Hartmann.
MSU's PP: Casey Nelson, Pamquist, LaFontaine, McInnis, Blueger
First TV timeout. MSU has a 6-1 shot advantage. Best scoring chance during the PP came from LaFontaine with a little spin move at the right post. After the penalty, Chase Grant had a nice move and stuff that was saved on the left side.
Herndon with a gift turnover right in front. Walsh saves, and Herndon puts the rebound off the post.
Another Bemidji penalty as MSU is really buzzing.
Penatly over, and MSU is buzzing. Shots are 10-1
But now an MSU penalty as Jordan Nelson goes for tripping
Williams on the spot after a turnover gives the dangerous Ward a chance right in front. He intercepted a clearing attempt by Gervais.
Penalty over. Good kill, save the one turnover
8:01 left in the first period. Still scoreless.
Big, clean open-ice check by Jordan Nelson. Textbook. Nice.
Another BSU penalty, a cross-check in the corner by Hansen, his second penalty of the period.
Nice glove save on Gaede late in the PP. He was so snakebit last season. Always seems to get good chances though.
Shots are 12-4 with 2 minutes left
Now another save on Margonari point-blank. Walsh has been really good. Steady. In position.
Around the WCHA: Bowling Green up 5-1 against Anchorage in the third ... Ferris State leads Huntsville 4-0 in the second ... Lake Superior is winning 3-1 at Wisconsin after one period. Michigan Tech and Michigan are tied 2-2 after two.
Walsh continues to stop everything and not give up much after the initial shot. 15:55 left in the period. Shots are 19-4
MSU penalty coming. Slashing on Margonari. Game was getting a little loose.
