The credit for the 2nd Niagara goal goes to Hannan, his second goal of the night.....
End of the 2nd, 2-0 NU
After 40 minutes of play, Niagara with a 2-0 lead. NU with 27 seconds of PP time to start the third.
SOG: 19-16 NU. MSU has won 21 of 35 faceoffs.

Meanwhile, in Houghton: Michigan Tech is spanking No. 1 Minnesota. 5-2 after two periods.
Saw this posted on Twitter. Looks like there are quite a few empty seats.

Yep, I said it earlier.. lots of seats masquerading as fans tonight.
Game on. Puck is dropped to start the third.
Michigan State is back to full strength. Still 2-0 NU
Does Niagara still have a player named Carl Lehtola playing for them?
This is a Pallas’s cat. Their round pupils give them an odd human quality. They disturb me...deeply.
I know people don't like to lay blame, but it should be 0-0. Yanakeff should have made both saves. The guy has trouble with, literally, the routine shot. He's otherwise Hasek-esq.
We need to dump and chase with emphasis on CHASE. There D don't really handle the puck that well.
Spartans to get a power play chance here with 17:06 left in the third. 2-0 NU still
Anyone enlighten me as to what is up? Yank looking bad?
There's a time and a place for everything and it's called college.
By the way, I love Rhett Holland's game. He's good.
Lots of pressure and a few shots by MSU on that power play chance... but no goal. Still 2-0 NU with 14:37 left.
Well, they didn't score but that was a hell of a power play. Not once did we try to develop it from the half boards. Amen. We can go back to it later in the game or later when we get more confident coming at them from the point.
All right, going on another power play.
Yep, he has stood out today for me as well. And this is his first game in green and white.
Another power play chance for the Spartans as Forfar draws a call.
I've always complained about MSU playing the dump and chase. It's kind of a pointless strategy if you NEVER win the chase
Spartans are going to go 2 men up for 1:20 min.
MSU will have a two man advantage for 1:20 coming up here.
13:43 left in the third.
Ya know, this is ridiculous. Call me when you get somebody in front of the net. Otherwise, you can go 5 on 3 all game and you ain't gonna do shit.
Jake Chelios scores top shelf just after the penalties expire. 2-1 NU now. 11:32 left in the third.
Jake Chelios, 5-5, GOAL! 2-1.
We'd better put one in the back of the net on this 2 man advantage.
