Michigan State enters its rivalry week against Michigan. This is the most-played (and perhaps most passionate) rivalry in college hockey – the teams will play games 343 and 344 this weekend. The Wolverines own a 179-139-24 edge in the series all-time. The Spartans own a 70-55-12 mark in games contested in East Lansing, and are 47-85-5 in Ann Arbor. Three of the four games played between the rivals last season were one-goal affairs. MSU won 2-1 at home, Michigan had 2-1 and 4-2 wins at Yost, and Michigan won a 4-3 affair at LCA with 0.6 seconds remaining in OT.
