The Michigan State Spartans defeated Bowling Green, 6-1, on the road Saturday night to split the weekend series with the Falcons at one game apiece.

Michigan State's special teams established a big lead early with two first period power play goals and another power play goal in the second period, giving the Spartans a 3-0 lead. Michigan State scored four power play goals total in the win.

Friday's game and Saturday's game held completely different stories for Bowling Green goaltender Andrew Hammond. Only one night after Friday's marvelous 1-0 shutout of the Spartans, Hammond allowed four goals in two periods Saturday before being pulled. Michigan State did not let up, scoring two more goals before the final whistle sounded.

Michigan State center Matt DeBlouw led the way for the Spartans in the victory with two goals and two assists, while Matt Berry had one goal and three assists. Berry, along with Lee Reimer, Michael Ferrantino and Greg Wolfe scored power play.

The six goals was a season-high for Michigan State. The Spartans' next contest comes Friday in Ann Arbor against the Michigan Wolverines.
