GAME NOTES:
Through goals from freshmen Bryce Gervais and Jon Jutzi, MSU scoerd on both of its only two shots on goal in Friday’s third period…UNO’s Matt White scored on UNO’s first shot of the game, coming 53 seconds into the first period…MSU freshman center Teddy Blueger picked up three assists in Friday’s game, good enough to see him named the second star of the night…UNO head coach Dean Blais temporarily pulled goaltender Anthony Stolarz with more than six minutes left in the third period with the red Mavericks on a power play, and at one point fielded five defensemen, but the hosts were ultimately unable to find a way back into the contest…Friday’s announced attendance was 6,125.
