First, a few basics:

Michigan State:

Adam Nightingale’s Spartans are red hot coming into this afternoon’s game, with an unbeaten streak that reached 7 on Friday night, as they tied Minnesota and picked up the extra point in the shootout. MSU is 10-3-2 overall, and 5-0-2 in Big Ten play this season. Freshman goaltender Trey Augustine made 44 saves in the exciting back-and-forth duel, while Joey Larson, Tiernan Shoudy, and Nash Nienhuis scored for the Spartans.


Usual Big Ten power Minnesota has underwhelmed so far this season compared to their typical standard of excellence, as they are 6-4-3 overall and 2-3-2 in conference play. The Gophers outshot MSU 47-28 on Friday night, playing an overall cleaner game than the Spartans, spending 15 fewer minutes in the penalty box. Bryce Brodzinski, the Gophers forward and Philadelphia Flyers draft pick, scored a notable goal late in a 5 minute Spartan penalty, while Connor Kurth and Rhett Pitlick added goals as well for Minnesota.
