Huskies get point at Minn.-Duluth

By Andy Bourdeau/Michigan Tech Beat Writer

The Michigan Tech Huskies scored two goals on the weekend and it was enough to come away with one point against a very good Minnesota-Duluth team.

It has been three weekends since the Huskies scored more than one goal on the weekend and five weekends since their last point (a 2-2 tie against Minnesota on Nov. 15).

Jordan Baker scored the lone Husky goal on Friday night in the second period and Rob Nolan made 19 saves in the 3-1 loss.

"We played much better than last weekend," MTU skipper Jamie Russell stated. "We created much better chances offensively."

Saturday, it was Brett Olsen notching the lone goal for Tech in a 1-1 tie. Freshman netminder Josh Robinson played a solid game in net, stopping 24 of 25 shots.

Russell was pretty happy with the way the team played on the weekend.

"We played good smart hockey," said Russell. "We took some good steps this weekend."

The Huskies (2-14-2, 1-11-2 WCHA) will play a home-and-home series with Northern Michigan this upcoming weekend starting at home Friday night.
