So the third period will begin with 1:17 of 4x4 time, followed by 33 seconds of major power-play time for MSU -- barring any more penalties, of course.
Hastings is out of the locker room early. Wonder if he'd like to talk to someone.
Third period is underway.
Now Teddy Blueger is down on the ice. No penalty. Not sure what happened.
No. Hope to get an update after the game.
Blueger down on one knee with the training talking to him.
MSU is already down two guys. ... Blueger is skating off on his own.
Going back to the locker room with the trainer.
And Northern Michigan scores. Shot from the left point redirected in.
Siemer came off the bench to get a loose puck and take it to the net. Sounded like there was some worry that NMU had too many on the ice. No replay in the press box.
Also, Huggins appeared to make the stop on the breakaway, but the puck trickled in.
Blueger and Flanagan with assists.
The good news there is that Blueger is back for MSU
8:43. NMU just took its timeout
A fanned shot by NMU turns into a Wildcats goal. Shine all by himself in front of the net as the puck came out to him and Huggins was out of position after another chance.
Weird game. MSU just getting outplayed, it seems.
By the way, Margonari is back, too. That's good for MSU. He'll be sore.
NMU penalty coming. Cross-checking. 3:34 left
Huggins is out, and now there's another NMU penalty.
Huggins stays out and it's a 6x3 for 37 seconds
One penalty done. 1:34 left
Dahlstrom coming up big here for NMU
A shot appeared to get past Dahlstrom put just popped up in the air behind him.
Refs are reviewing something here. The clock, I believe.
And that'll do it. A 3/4 ice shot into the empty net with 20.1 seconds left. 5-2. NMU.
Thanks for checking in on the blog. Same time tomorrow night.
