MSU wins meaningless shootout
Spartans win warm and fuzzy feelings after defeating Niagara in the completely meaningless shootout 1-0.
So both teams agreed to do a shootout for the hell of it?
Yes. In non-conference games with CCHA teams, if both teams agree to do a shootout prior to the game, they can. Officially though, in the record books, it's a tie.
