Michigan Tech's long season came to an end this past weekend at the hands of the No. 1-ranked North Dakota Fighting Sioux in the first round of the WCHA playoffs.
MTU was beaten 8-0 and 3-1 on the weekend, with the lone goal coming from Ryan Furne.
Friday was dominated by the Sioux, with chances few and far between for the Huskies, but Saturday was another story as MTU had the lead 1-0 after one period and within one going into the third. MTU and UND both had chances and the game was a one-goal difference with minutes to play. The final goal for UND was a empty-netter with seconds to play.
Both Kevin Genoe and Josh Robinson played Friday night between the pipes, while Robinson played all game on Saturday.
“I was very proud of our performance (Saturday) night,” said Michigan Tech head coach Jamie Russell. “After our last three games, we picked ourselves off the mat. We played in our systems and gave it everything we had. A couple of bounces was the difference tonight.”
