Michigan Tech remained unbeaten at home, taking three points from Minnesota-Duluth. The two teams skated to a 0-0 tie on Friday, the first time since 1968 at Houghton, and then MTU won 4-1 on Saturday.
Michael-Lee Teslak (pictured right) recorded his second consecutive shutout at home as he stopped all 16 shots faced on Friday. MTU outshot UMD, 27-16.
Saturday, Malcolm Gwilliam broke the stalemate, when he scored the lone goal of the opening period.
Tyler Shelast was able to put MTU up by two in the second, but three minutes later, UMD brought the game to within one.
Tyler Schworchinski was the thorn in the Bulldogs side as he scored a pair in the third, one on the power play and the other in an empty net.
Rob Nolan improved his record to 3-2-0 and made 20 saves on the night. MTU outshot UMD again, 27-21.
Next weekend MTU (6-3-1, 3-2-1 WCHA) travels to Denver to take on the Pioneers, who swept Wisconsin this past weekend.
