MTU struggles in Alaska

By Andy Bourdeau/ MTU Beat Writer

Michigan Tech (10-12-4, 6-9-3) went into the weekend, with 2 games in hand, and three points out of 4th in the WCHA, but all they could muster was 1 point from the last place Anchorage Seawolves. Still with 2 games in hand on the two teams tied for 4th (Wisconsin and UMD) the Huskies goal at of home ice is not out of the question, just not as attainable after this weekend.

Tech came out of the gate sluggish and gave up two goals in the first period. The defense looked slow and Michael Lee Teslak could not come up with the saves when needed. Teslak only lasted half the game, as Robbie Nolan replaced him after the third goal was scored. Teslak made 15 saves, while Nolan make 12.

Saturday, the Huskies look much better, but could not find the back of the net early. AA jumped to a 2-0 lead early in the second, and looked as if a repeat from the night before was in the cards. That is until freshman Jordan Baker was able to get a goal in the second half of the third. Derek Kitti followed suit 3 minutes later, tieing the game at 2, where it would end after a 5 minute overtime.

Nolan was in net again and made 20 saves on the night.

Michigan Tech returns home for a Winter Carnival weekend series with Wisconsin.
