Greetings again from downtown Mankato.
Mavericks will try to make it a sweep and five wins in a row.
UAH starters: Guerriero, Reinhardt, Strukoff, Allan, Reid, Vanderlugt
MSU starters: Williams, Stern, Palmquist, Stepan, Margonari, McInnis
Not too shocked that Williams is getting the nod for MSU. Need to see what he can do, get him a game, in case they need him down the stretch and in the playoffs.
Riley Means, daughter of MSU women's coach Eric Means, just sang the national anthem. Sixth-grader. Awesome job!
Rough shift for Zach Stepan. Took a few licks.
UAH moved freshman Brandon Carlson from defense to left wing on the top line (on the chart anyway). Carlson is from Huntington Beach, Calif., the only USHL player on the roster
Guerriero is in goal for UAH. Freshman, as was Larose last night. They've split time all year but Guerriero's numbers are better.
LaFontaine scores on the delayed penalty. Snipe. That's his 100th career point.
Nice pass through the crease from LaFontaine to Palmquist. If Palmquist handles it, it's a goal.
But there's a goal. Johnny McInnis between the has marks
Awfully quick timeout for UAH. But the shots are 10-1
Lehrke with the lone assist on the goal
I think a case can be made either way, Brian.
Both teams changing lines. Pushing and shoving each other.
8 minutes left in the period. Shots are 14-1
Mavs going back on the power play
Mavs have over a minute of in-zone time with the puck. UAH finally gets a freeze by the goalie.
LaFontaine with a wraparound try that the goalie covers
20 shots for MSU with 1 minute left. Still 2-0
Leitner has a great look and sends it over the to pot the goal
Second period is underway. Time for some action at the other ennd of the rink.
Leitner just misses LaFontaine on a 2-on-1. Seriously, this game could be 6-0 right now. Probably should be.
Penalty coming on MSU. Stern for roughing.
Shots are 22-4. Mavs can't really afford to give this team life right now. They need to put the game away, not let them hang around. That being said, Guerriero has been decent.
Good kill. Nary a sniff for UAH.
Williams bopping his head to the pep band right now. Been awhile since we've seen that.
Another good save by Guerriero
Another fine save by Guerriero on a rush from Margonari, Stepan and McInnis
3:14 left in the period. Shots are 33-5.
UAH penalty coming. Mavs have a chance during the delayed penalty.
