Lakers salvage one point in Alaska trip

Lake Superior State University was only able to earn one point in their trip to Alaska this weekend, tying 2-2 on Friday night and falling 3-1 in Saturday's finale.

The Lakers are now 3-4-0 in Saturday contests, with wins against Wayne State and American International, but are only 1-3-0 in CCHA play, including losing their past three CCHA games played on Saturday evenings.

Friday night, the Lakers jumped out to a 2-0 lead on the Nanooks with Josh Sim and Derek A. Smith each scoring on the power play. Senior goaltender Jeff Jakaitis allowed two Alaska even-strength goals 41 seconds apart just after the midway point of the second period by Ryan Muspratt and Darcy Campbell to give the Nanooks a 2-2 tie.

Lake Superior State found themselves down early in the game Saturday night with the Nanooks' Kyle Greentree slipping a goal past Jakaitis just 52 seconds into the game.

Greentree added a second goal just past the midpoint of the first period and then completed the hat trick with under four minutes remaining in the second period on the power play after a frustrated LSSU team was called for three consecutive penalties.

The lone bright spot for the Lakers was Sim scoring his second goal of the weekend and sixth of the season.

LSSU went 2-for-13 on the power play and held UA to 1-for-11 with the extra man on the weekend.

Next weekend, the Lakers play a home-and-home series against Northern Michigan University.
