Michigan Tech (6-7-1, 5-6-1) travelled to Minnesota and came away with two points on the weekend. MTU won on Friday night, coming back from a 2-0 deficit and winning in overtime, 3-2. Saturday saw the home team win, 3-1.
The Huskies went down 2-0 in the first on Friday night, but were able to battle back with goals from three different players, each with the first goal of season for them. John Schwartz scored the first goal, the first of his career. Freshman Deron Cousens tied the game with his first of his career.
Then in overtime, Alex Gagne scored his first of the season on a play that started with a strange bounce.
Michael-Lee Teslak was in the net and ended the night making 26 saves.
Saturday appeared to start well for the Huskies, but they had a goal disallowed. A minute later, Minnesota turned the momentum around and put the puck in the back of the net. Peter Rouleau (right) tied the game later in the first, when he tapped in a rebound. That was the only goal MTU could get, as the Gophers added a goal in the second and in the third to post a 3-1 victory.
Teslak in goal again, for the fourth straight game, came up with 34 saves.
MTU will have a week off, then face UP rivals Northern Michigan in a home-and-home series, starting in Marquette on Dec. 14.
