Michigan State hockey loses at Lake Superior State, 3-2

US Presswire

The Spartans couldn't pull off the third period magic they did against Niagra last week, falling to 1-3-1 on the season.

Michigan State coach Tom Anastos was quick to give credit to the Spartans' opponent Friday, Lake Superior State, for their 3-2 victory in Sault Ste. Marie, Mich.

But that doesn't mean Michigan State made the plays they needed to earn a victory.

"We preached all week about keeping things simple, but we failed to do that and it's why we gave up some of the goals we did today," Anastos was quoted as saying on the school's web site.

The Spartans fell to 1-3-1 on the season despite goals from sophomore forward Tanner Sorenson and senior forward Anthony Hayes.

Michigan State scored three goals in the final period to edge Niagra 3-2 in the first game of the weekend series Oct. 19. Down 2-0 midway through the second period, the Spartans scored their two goals, but allowed a third LSSU goal, the game-winner with one second left in the second period.

The Spartans and Lakers square off again at 7:05 p.m. ET Saturday in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan.
