The Spartans split on their long trip to Alaska. They lost the opener 4-1, but played fairly well, the score was not indicative of the game. They persevered through some injuries and won the second game 6-2. Palmisano got the win for Michigan State.
The Spartans will host Bowling Green this weekend in the last series of the regular season. A series sweep would be a great confidence boost heading into the CCHA playoffs.
