LSSU drops opener to MSU

All twelve seniors for LSSU suited up for Thursday nights contest against Michigan State, as MSU’s dominance over LSSU continued, MSU is now 23-2-4 in their last 29 games against LSSU.

Lake Superior State fell behind early when MSU’s Chris Mueller scored an even strength goal at 1:43 of the first period. Despite dominating the first period, putting up 11 shots to Michigan State’s 3 shots, LSSU was unable to get a shot past freshman goaltender Jeff Lerg.

LSSU scoring leader Trent Campbell was able to tie the game at 1-1 when he scored a four on three power play goal at 6:40 of the second period with assists going to Alex Dunn and Derek A. Smith.

A lapse in defense in the 12th minute of the second period saw the Lakers let the game get away from them when they fell behind 3-1 with Bryan Lerg and Drew Miller scoring goals 23 seconds apart. Lerg’s goal came on the power play at 12:12 of the second with Miller’s even strength goal coming at 12:35.

Nathan Ward was able to score a short handed goal at 13:37 of the third period, with Campbell assisting, to pull the Lakers within 1 goal. LSSU goalie Jeff Jakaitis was pulled with 1:20 remaining in the game but the Lakers where unable to capitalize with the sixth attacker.

MSU went 1 for 5 on the power play while LSSU was able to connect on 1 of their 7 opportunities. LSSU also out shot MSU 30-22

Both teams head to Detroit for Saturday afternoon’s game at the Joe Louis Arena. MSU has a first round bye locked up for the CCHA playoffs while LSSU is trying to hold on to a home playoff series next weekend, that they have seen slipping from their hands the past four weeks.
