Sometimes getting a weekend off in college hockey is a good thing. Injury-riddled teams are able to take an extra week to heal, downtrodden teams are given time to regroup or, at the very least, teams are able to flat out rest. But, in Michigan State’s eyes, last week’s bye may have come at an inconvenient time.

No. 15 Michigan State heads out on the road to Minneapolis for a two-game series at No. 2 Minnesota.

MSU brings Minnesota products Justin Jallen (St. Paul) and Gavin Best (Richfield) to play in their home state.

When Adam Nightingale took over as Michigan State’s head coach in early May, he didn’t do too much analysis of senior forward Jagger Joshua. After all, he was a holdover from the previous regime, one that scored just eight goals in three seasons and far too often made more of an impact in the penalty box than he did on the scoresheet.

When putting together a top forward line, most people would expect a combination of skill and experience, pairing skilled goal-scorers with veterans that know where to find them. Most wouldn’t expect two freshmen and a senior with eight goals in his first three years to mesh well. For Michigan State, however, it’s worked beautifully.
