Greetings from downtown Mankato, folks! Big weekend for the Mavs!
MTU starters: Copley, Watson, Sweeney, Johnstone, Pietila, Sturos
MSU starters: Huggins, Jutzi, Foguth, LaFontaine, Leitner, Gervais
After 2 periods, Ferris State leads Lake Superior 2-1
After two periods, Bowling Green leads Bemidji State 5-3
Looks like a lot of MSU students already took off for spring break. That's too bad. Marketing folk needed to shake the bushes and get locals to the series.
Interesting to see Leitner get thrown out of the face-off circle to start. Don't see that often
Couple of chances early for MSU.
Intense game from the first shift.
Shots are 2-0 for MSU with 15:37 left in the period.
First penalty will go to Tech.
Hyland for interference on Grant
So-so. Spring break begins.
Feels like a lively bunch though.
MSU can't get anything going. Tech has had 3-4 clears through 90 seconds
Penalty over. No shots, I don't think.
12:07 left in the period. Media timeout. Shots are 3-0 for MSU. Is this the game the Huskies want to play?
Going to add the MavHockey twitter feed tonight and see how that goes.
Possible shot on goal by Tech with 11:32 left. May have been blocked.
Nice setup to Chase Grant fired wide.
Great chance out front by Huntebrinker!
Another good shift by the fourth line. They've provided energy and scoring chances over the course of this streak.
8:34 to go. Shots are 5-1
Another scoring chance ... this one by Blueger after a high shot by McInnis
Big collision between Max Gaede and Tanner Kero. Gaede will go to the box for elbowing. Boy, don't know about that one.
Double minor for Gaede. Two for elbowing, two for unsportsmanlike.
Penalties over. One shot on goal maybe.
Final minute of the period.
Bemidji's in trouble with that loss. Down to ninth (likely, if NMU beats Huntsville, and they're up 2-0) now.
