Michigan State Dominates UNH 5-0
Adam Clark, who had backstopped UNH's last two wins, was out of the lineup with a shoulder injury sustained in practice this week. Danny Tirone faced a barrage of 42 shots and 5 pucks got past him. At the other end of the ice, UNH only managed 22 shots on goal and All-American goalie Jake Hildebrand had no difficulty stopping them all.
As brutal as it might be to watch, here are the video highlights of Michigan State's shutout of UNH.
