The Michigan State State Spartans captured the GLI crown with an easy win over RPI. Brett Perlini was named tournament MVP with a goal and an assist in the game. Perlini, Gazley, Petry, and Palmisano were named to the all-tournament team. With the win, the Spartans moved to 14-6-2 overall.
All I can say is that the Spartans did not lose any momentum over the Christmas holiday. They came back strong and crushed two pretty good hockey clubs. Perlini really deserved the MVP award with his performance in the two games. He is a guy that made the most of his opportunity to play in the tourney. Scoring came from all lines in the two games, which is a great sign. Palmisano's two games were overshadowed by all the goals, but he played two excellent games in net by only allowing a goal in each game.
