College hockey gameday: Minnesota State at Bemidji State

(Continued)

5. The coaches’ view: Hastings says the defensive-minded Beavers won’t make life easy for the Mavericks. “They’re frustrating to play against,” he said. “They’re extremely well-coached, from the goal out. I think their goaltender (Walsh) is probably their best player. We need to be prepared for that.” Said BSU’s Tom Serratore: “There’s no question (MSU’s) the most talented team in the league. ... They’re very deep up front. They’re a team that can put up four goals on any given night.”

Around the rinks

Minnesota State women: The Mavericks (3-5-0, 0-4-0 in WCHA) play a home-and-home series against No. 1-ranked Minnesota (8-0-0, 6-0-0), starting tonight in Minneapolis.
