MSU begins important stretch of WCHA games


"They've banked some points," Hastings said.

The Mavericks were swept at Minnesota last week, scoring just one goal in the series. Bowling Green got one WCHA point in a series at Ferris State, blowing two-goal leads in both games there. Ferris State scored two goals in the final two minutes to tie Friday's game and two goals in the final four minutes to win on Saturday.

"I know (Bowling Green is) going to be excited about the opportunity to play in front of their home crowd, and we're excited now that we're back in league play," Hastings said. "They're good."

McInnis said he was encouraged by how the Mavericks played against Minnesota on Saturday, although it was a 3-0 loss.

"For the first time our compete level was where we wanted it," he said. "Even (the 1-0 overtime win over Bowling Green on Nov. 9) I don't think it was at the same level as it was last Saturday night. Hopefully, things will start falling into place. The results we've been getting is not due to a lack of effort."
