Spartans Stay Tough, Upsetting UM Hockey

DETROIT (WWJ) A power-play goal made the difference for the Michigan State as they beat rival University of Michigan, 2-1 at Joe Louis Arena Saturday night.

One of the state’s fiercest hockey rivalries came down to a story of missed chances for the Wolverines, giving the team its fifth loss in conference play.

A great game between the two teams, hanging in the balance, the Wolverines were trying to stay in first place.

It was back and forth hockey for the first 40 minutes, when MSU scored first on a power-play late in the second period.

The Wolverines came back within minutes to score. But UM failed to take advantage of opportunities and the Spartans ended up scoring on a rebound goal to get the go ahead goal and go on to get the win.
