The MSU hockey team (0-4) will welcome Princeton University (0-0) this weekend when the two teams face off at Munn Ice Arena. The Spartans will be looking for their first win of the season after they were swept the weekend before by then-No. 6 University of Denver.
When the final horn blew and the play clock struck zero, the MSU hockey team headed to its locker room again, heads down in a losing effort. Against No. 6 University of Denver, it was that exact story of when the Spartans dropped both games during the weekend series.
During a chilly October weekend just a week before Halloween, the MSU hockey team (0-4) hosted No. 6 University of Denver (4-2) as it looked for its first win of the season. While it played two competitive games, the team dropped both matches to the Pioneers, 2-1, 3-1.
When the puck dropped between MSU and Lake Superior State University, it signified the start of a new season, as the team kicked off its 76th campaign as a program. While the results weren’t pretty — they lost both games, 6-1, 7-3 — head coach Tom Anastos said he wanted to use the games as building blocks.

MSU hockey released it’s schedule for the 2016-17 season yesterday and after a season ripe with top tier opponents, many of them on the front end of the schedule, MSU hockey again will face a tough non-conference slate.
Nearly two weeks after bowing out of the Big Ten Hockey Tournament to Ohio State University in overtime in the quarterfinals, a relatively quiet offseason for MSU hockey was offset by the departure of junior forward Mackenzie MacEachern.
MSU hockey (10-23-4) headed to the Big Ten Tournament looking to prolong its season. Facing a familiar foe in Ohio State in the quarterfinals it needed to string together a gutsy performance to have a shot at the NCAA Tournament.
With 1:37 left in the first period Saturday night, redshirt senior goaltender Nate Phillips checked into the game for the first time. To Spartan fans unaware of the occasion, seeing Phillips skate to the Spartan goal might have been cause for alarm. Phillips, the third string goaltender for MSU, had never recorded a save or a minute of action in five years on the Spartan bench until he stepped onto the ice on senior night in front of a nearly sold out arena.
Following an 11 goal barrage Friday night, MSU hockey (10-22-4, 6-12-2) and Ohio State University (13-17-4, 8-8-4-1) combined for two goals in Saturday’s contest officially tying 1-1 after three periods of regulation and overtime on MSU senior night in front of a crowd of 6,092. However, the Spartans didn’t send its senior class out without a gift as MSU won the shootout, 1-0.
Down 5-4 after leading the game three different times, MSU hockey’s final desperation attempt yielded a goal off the stick of junior forward Joe Cox knotting the game up with 1.6 seconds left in the period, sending the game to overtime. Nevertheless, Ohio State’s Matthew Weis played the role of hero, redirecting the puck into the MSU net with 26 seconds left in the overtime period giving the Buckeyes a 6-5 win.
A night after bounces seemed to fall in Minnesota's favor at every turn. MSU (10-21-3, 6-11-1) was on the receiving end of some puck luck en route to a 5-0 victory over first place in the Big Ten Minnesota (18-15, 13-5).
Tied up 2-2 with conference leading Minnesota (18-14, 13-4) , MSU (9-21-3, 5-11-1) had a chance to swing the puck luck into its favor. A streaking Mackenzie MacEachern raced out of the zone on a shorthanded breakaway. The junior forward who leads MSU in goals had faked a shot but handcuffed himself in the process sending a shot off target. Minutes later on the power play, senior forward Matt DeBlouw slipped into the slot and sent a shot jarring off the crossbar and out.
For much of the latter half of the season MSU head hockey coach Tom Anastos has been struggling to find answer as to why his team couldn’t string together two wins. In a season plagued with inconsistency, MSU found some steady play on the road in Madison Wisconsin.
In the opening segment of the broadcast of the game the word consistency was uttered multiple times as a key to victory tonight for MSU hockey (8-20-3, 4-10-1-0) and Wisconsin (6-14-7,1-9-3-1). With both teams struggling to string together wins throughout the year it wouldn’t be consistency that ultimately decided the back and forth contest.
Holding tight to a 2-1 lead over Penn State University on Saturday, MSU senior captain and forward Michael Ferrantino made a beautiful play. A Penn State defenseman was about to tee up a one-timer from the point, but a flying Ferrantino dove to the ice, swatted the puck off the defenseman’s stick and slid wrist-and-head-first into the boards. He got up, clutching his wrist, and skated straight to the bench.
Only a week removed from a series split with rival Michigan, MSU hockey (7-20-3, 3-10-1-0) fell to and tied Penn State (18-8-4, 8-5-1-1) in a weekend series at Munn Ice Arena.
