Lakers split at Bemidji
The Lake Superior State Lakers continued their 'Jeckyl and Hyde' ways over the weekend, shutting out the Bemidji State Beavers 2-0 on Friday, before falling 0-5 on Saturday.
Friday nights game was a net minders duel right until the end. The score was 0-0 until Laker forward Chris Ciotti scored an un-assisted power play goal with only four minutes left in the game. BSU would pull their goalie, but that gave captain Dominic Monardo the chance to score his second goal of the year into an empty net. Defenseman Andrew Perrault would earn the only assist. In net, Kevin Kapalka made 27 saves for the win and shut-out.
Saturday night the Lakers scoring woes continued, but the Beavers found the net in the second and third periods to cruise to the 5-0 win. The Lakers were 0 for 2 on the power play, and Kapalka made 24 saves.
Lake State (2-2-0) will have to find their offense in a hurry, as they host Michigan State next weekend for homecoming.
