MSU hockey blows out Big Ten leading Minnesota, 5-0

A night after bounces seemed to fall in Minnesota's favor at every turn it was MSU who was on the receiving end of some puck luck en route to a 5-0 victory over first place in the Big Ten Minnesota. “Tonight we kind of got a few of the bounces that they took from us last night,” senior forward and captain Michael Ferrantino said.


MSU hockey defeats Wisconsin, 4-3

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.


Hockey season plagued with mixed performances

The Spartans celebrated as if they they had won an NCAA title, piling on top of each other on the boards adjacent to the Spartan bench. But they still had won a trophy: a 50-pound metal trophy called The Iron D. MSU laid claim to the newly inaugurated trophy in the hotly contested Duel in the D matchup. That harrowing effort was followed up with a 4-1 loss at the hands of U-M on Saturday. The Iron D might be the only trophy the MSU hockey team will have to show for their losing season.
