Bemidji is victorious, 5-1, and will face Cornell here tomorrow night. The Beavers put on a show as far as skating was concerned, but the Irish were not going to quit. After a shorty by the Beavers, ND finally got one off a defensive breakdown. After they made the scoreboard, they worked hard to get a shorthanded goal of their own. In other words, they kept taking penalties, but also pressed the power play unit hard, creating opportunities. As poor as the PP was for the Beavers, their PK was awesome, and if they could have stayed on the PK the rest of the game, they should have taken it. As it was, an empty net goal for Bemidji sealed it, and the game ended 5-1.
The Beavers face Cornell tomorrow night in Grand Rapids. I will not be able to make it. Back to East Lansing for me. I did get some decent photos, and hopefully some good audio. We’ll see when I get it posted.
