Michigan Tech showed a little life this weekend against ECAC foe St. Lawrence, reaching out and getting a 4-4 tie on Saturday, but then found their way back to their struggling ways, losing 6-0 on Saturday.
Captain Brett Olson made his return on the weekend, playing at about 75 percent, but it was enough to give the team a bit of energy for Friday night. Milos Gordic, Steven Siego, Ryan Furne and Dennis Rix found the back of the net for the Huskies and Josh Robinson stood strong in net, all aiding in the tie.
In OT, it was Olson that nearly won it for them on a partial breakaway, but the St. Lawrence goalie was too much.
Saturday was one of the worst games the Huskies skated all year. They struggled getting out of their zone all the way to getting shots on net. It was a one-sided affair.
It has been a difficult time on players and coaches, but MTU (3-16-3, 1-12-1 WCHA) hopes to turn it around this weekend with another home series against the No. 4-ranked Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs.
