Miami Shuts Out Michigan State In Second Game Of Series

Rick Osentoski-US PRESSWIRE

Michigan State’s offense was nowhere to be found in game two. The Miami Red Hawks shut out the Spartans 2-0.

Miami’s first goal came midway through the first period. Senior forward Curtis McKenzie tipped in a shot by freshmen forward Riley Barber.

Sophomore forward Alex Wideman notched the second Miami goal towards the end of the third period.

While Miami freshman goalie Jay Williams did not allow a single goal, he can credit that to his defense. The Red Hawk defense allowed just 13 shots on goal, while Michigan State’s defense allowed 36.

Michigan State freshman goalie Jake Hildebrand had another strong outing, stopping 34 out of 36 Miami shots. It was his third straight start.

Both teams were ineffective on the power-play. The Spartans went 0/2 and the Red Hawks went 0/3.

Senior forward Lee Reimer will have to sit the first game of the Ohio State series. He earned a major penalty and a game disqualification for a hit from behind on Miami freshman forward Alex Gacek midway through the second.

Michigan State will have next weekend off. They take the ice again November 30th against Ohio State.
