Bowling Green and Lake Superior are tied 3-3 in the third.
Second period underway in Mankato
Big hit by Carter Foguth leads to Anchorage icing the puck
Ummmm ... Foguth blatantly tripped and no call. He had the puck, had a step on a guy and just, uh, tripped.
Good fourth-line work there. Jordan Nelson hustling to chase down a loose puck. Mavs get a couple of shots.
MSU penalty coming, and UAA scores during the delay. There will be power play too.
Couple of quick back-to-back saves by Huggins
Mavericks kill the penalty
The Mavs went from dominating this game to being in an even, grind-it-out game. Just like the scoreboard says.
Margonari with a power move to get a shot on net. Rebound goes under Stepan and McInnis' shot is blocked. Great play. Some bad luck.
Lots and lots of in-zone time by the Mavericks there, and UAA ices the puck. Timeout here?
UAA penalty coming as Blueger gets his stick slashed in half.
Mavs have some momentum going and now a power play. Big chance here. Getting a media timeout to rest PP guys, too.
Kind of a meh power play there but one good chance late.
MSU gets a too many on the ice penalty. Oof.
Too many of those this year.
Leitner fires wide or goalie gets a piece after a pretty short-handed set-up.
UAA was coming hard at the end of that power play, t oo
2:28 to play in the period.
Great shot by Gervais with 26 seconds left. Knucked on Gunderson but the goalie gloved it. Yikes.
Huggins makes a save on a shot through traffic I don't think he could see. Just made himself big.
Lake Superior beat Bowling Green 4-3 tonight
Not sure how that went in. But a Flanagan shot from the wall somehow gives MSU the 3-2 lead. That line was gassed too. Needed to get off the ice but had a rush.
Gervais is going to go to the box for interference after fanning on a shot from up top. Prevented a possible breakaway.
And the penalty ends just like that as UAA's Friesen gets called for holding on the faceoff
Teams skating 4x4 for almost 2 minutes
Good work by Gaede to outskate an icing.
Huggins just got run over. Not sure if the guy got checked into him. But ... ouch
Good scoring chance by the Leitner line, trying to seal the deal.
Another good scoring chance and some heads-up play by Lehrke on the rush to use his D. Lots of health issues early on but was he as big a missing piece as it appears?
That was the last media timeout. 3:52 left
2:32 to play. Mavs ice the puck. Gervais needs to be aware of where he is on the ice there.
Leitner makes a nice no-stick slide to get the puck into the O-zone. Good play too because he turned it over in neutral
Huggins makes a huge save with 2 seconds left. Woah.
Mavs win 3-2. Tough, grind-it-out game.
Thanks for checking in. See you tomorrow.
