BEMIDJI, Minn. — It took just one minute for the Bemidji State men's hockey team to show Michigan Tech they meant business on Saturday night. Kyle Bauman's goal off the rush — exactly a minute into the game — seemed to take goaltender Angus Redmond and the rest of the Huskies by surprise. It was just a sign of things to come.
BEMIDJI, Minn. — Three third-period goals helped the Bemidji State men's hockey team rally past Michigan Tech on Friday night, helping the first-place Beavers put some much-needed distance on the second-place Huskies in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association standings. Sophomore winger Mike Soucier scored twice and junior winger Leo Fitzgerald scored what proved to be the game-winning goal in the third period as the Beavers beat the Huskies 4-2 at the Sanford Center.
BEMIDJI, Minn. — When Zach Whitecloud was going through his college commitment process, he wasn't aware of the Bemidji area's large Native American population or influence. The 6-foot-3 freshman defensemen did know about the hockey at Bemidji State, though.
BEMIDJI, Minn. — The Bemidji State men's hockey team always seemed just a step behind Ferris State. Despite outshooting the Bulldogs 36-27 and dominating play for big stretches of the game, the Beavers never really found their footing. By the time they did, it was too late. The Bulldogs jumped out to an early lead, then closed the game with a pair of late third period goals to beat the Beavers 5-2 on Friday night at the Sanford Center.
BEMIDJI, Minn. — Following last Saturday's game at the Sanford Center, Bemidji State men's head hockey coach Tom Serratore took stock of all the nagging little injuries his Beavers' squad played through. "We got beat up during the game," Serratore said. "We blocked a couple shots. We had injured thumbs, wrists, knees... but our guys fought through it. They expended a lot of energy."
BEMIDJI, Minn. — The streak had to end someday. The Bemidji State men's hockey team came into Saturday night's game at the Sanford Center with a seven-game unbeaten streak against Minnesota Duluth. After a 1-1 tie on Friday night in Duluth, the Beavers even entered the third period Saturday in striking distance — another low-scoring, 1-1 game meant the Beavers were again in position for a good result against the top-ranked Bulldogs.
BEMIDJI, Minn. — Jay Dickman's celebration after scoring his second-period power-play goal on Saturday was a little more animated than usual. Bemidji State's sophomore forward had just put the Beavers up 3-1 on Lake Superior State after finishing a wraparound goal past LSSU's Gordon Defiel. It had been a tumultuous period, with eight combined penalties and plenty of testiness between the two teams. "I was fired up because we just got a two-goal lead," Bemidji State's sophomore forward said. "It gave us a cushion."
BEMIDJI, Minn. — The Bemidji State men's hockey team came into this weekend's series against Princeton riding an eight-game unbeaten streak — one in which they had barely trailed by one goal, much less by two. On Friday night at the Sanford Center, Princeton gave the Beavers what BSU senior winger Brendan Harms called an "eye-opener." The Tigers scored twice in the second period and held the Beavers to just a single goal as they beat BSU 4-1 in their non-conference series opener.
BEMIDJI, Minn. — Although the Bemidji State men's hockey team has, by now, perfected the defensive, grind-it-out win this season, the Beavers on Saturday were ready for slightly less stress. Behind a first-period offensive onslaught — four goals in less than 10 minutes — and another solid performance from junior goaltender Michael Bitzer, the Beavers steamrolled past Northern Michigan, 5-2, to earn the Western Collegiate Hockey Association series sweep Saturday night at the Sanford Center.
BEMIDJI, Minn. — The Bemidji State men's hockey team keeps finding ways to win. After tying and winning in overtime last weekend against Minnesota State in Mankato, the Beavers again found themselves in a close, defensive battle with Northern Michigan on Friday night. This time, though, the Beavers didn't need overtime. BSU scored two-first period goals and those held up as the Beavers beat the Wildcats 2-1 in their Western Collegiate Hockey Association game at the Sanford Center.
