MSU leads BSU 4-0 after Two Periods--Notes

Scoring:

15:10 Chase Grant from Teddy Blueger and Dylan Margonari (power play) 3-0 Minnesota State

Blueger won the face-off at the beginning of a power play, went behind the net, took a pass, and fed a quick pass to Grant in the low slot, who fired home the goal. A pretty tic-tac-toe play.

17:00 Matt Leitner from Tyler Elbrecht 4-0 Minnesota State

Leitner picked up the puck off a rush into the Bemidji State zone and fired a high wrist shot over the glove of Dugas.

Notes:

Shots on goal, or Bemidji State's lack of them, was the big story here. After getting two shots on net in the first two minutes of the game, Bemidji State's third shot didn't come until a relatively harmless Jake Areshenko shot from the point with 6 minutes left in the second period. Bemidji State finished the second period with a total of six shots, and after the those first two in the early first period, never really threatened.

As you'd expect with the lopsided shot total, MSU looked pretty comfortable. As much as they'd controlled the game, Bemidji was just a shot or two away from making it a really tight third period until MSU added those two late goals.

MSU leads BSU 2-0 after one period

Scoring:

5:59- Brett Stern from Eriah Hayes and Jean-Paul LaFontaine 1-0 Minnesota State

After Stern shot the puck from the right point, a scramble ensued in front of the net as Dugas couldn't control the rebound. Stern came in from the point, dug the puck out of the pile, and shot it over Dugas' shoulder for the first goal of the game.

12:21 Johnny McInnis from Teddy Blueger and Dylan Margonari (power play) 2-0 Minnesota State

Blueger brought puck into the zone and made a drop pass to McInnis who the slot, who fired a quick wrister over the shoulder of Dugas.

Notes:

Minnesota State looks like a team that has won three in a row, and is playing very confident hockey right now; completely different than how they looked earlier this season. On Stern's goal, that was a confident play by him to follow his shot in, pick it up and score. He looked like a guy that had done that dozens of times before, rather than someone scoring his first career goal.

Bemidji State's top line of Ben Kinne-Jeff Jubinville-Jordan George was very strong to start the game. They controlled the puck in the MSU zone for the first minute and a half of the game and nearly opened the game with a goal. BSU's only real pressure came with that line on the ice, while MSU controlled the play against Bemidji's other three lines.
