By The Numbers: First Period

Score: MSU 1, FSU 0
Shots: FSU 12, MSU 4
Power Plays: FSU 0-2, MSU 0-2
Penalties: FSU 2-4, MSU 2-4
Saves: FSU's Taylor Nelson three saves, MSU's Jeff Lerg 12

Comments: Obviously, MSU got off to the hot start with the goal just 36 seconds into the game to take some of the air out of the Ferris fans in the Ewigleben Ice Arena. But, the Bulldogs did bounce back to play some solid hockey against a talented (even if struggling) Michigan State hockey team. Once again, MSU goaltender Jeff Lerg has been solid against the Bulldogs' snipers through the first 20 minutes. Out of the 12 Bulldog shots, several have been decent looks at Lerg, but the MSU goaltender has gotten some help from his blueliners and forwards. At the opposite end, FSU's Taylor Nelson bounced back from the early goal and look solid for the duration of the period. Ferris has to work hard to get at Lerg with some rebounds and second-chance opportunities to push one past him. But, it won't be easy.
