In the series finale at the Munn Ice Arena in East Lansing, it was the Gophers who came out on top in a 3-2 Saturday matinee.

In a game where Minnesota took double-digit shots in two periods, Michigan State had answers. The first two goals of the game went to Minnesota as Christian Isackson scored his first goal of the season at 11:47 off an assist from Gabe Guertler on even strength. Minnesota’s Seth Ambroz made it 2-0 on a power play goal at 18:25 with assists from Michael Brodzinski and Justin Kloos.

Mike Reilly scored the Gophers’ final goal in the second period at 6:05. Reilly’s seventh of the year came on even strength and Isackson as well as Jake Bischoff recorded assists.

Villiam Haag (15:17 of the second period) and Mike Ferrantino (19:59 of third with extra attacker and empty net) scored for the Spartans, but it wasn’t enough to hold off the Gophers, who had a 38-21 edge in shots. Minnesota went 1-4 on power plays while Michigan State went 1-5 in the finale.
