"I didn't like Billy last night, and I pulled him, and he struggled the last
time we played Ohio State," NMU head coach Walt Kyle said. "He didn't
play well then. I went with Stewie ... and we'll see him tomorrow."
In other CCHA playoff action:
- The Lake Superior State Lakers forced a Game 3 with a 4-3 win over Ferris State in Sault Ste. Marie. Dominc Osman had two scored for LSSU, including the game winner. Trent Campbell notched a shortie for the Lakers while Jeff Jakaitis made 23 saves in the win.
- The Western Michigan Broncos chased Alaska netminder Wylie Rogers from the net after scoring three times on five shots in a 6-2 beating of the Nanook to force a Game 3. Riley Gill made 37 saves in net for Western. Paul Szczechura has two goals for Western.
- Nebraska-Omaha gladly disposed of the Bowling Green Falcons with a 7-5 win Saturday to complete the sweep. BGSU took the Mavericks to overtime Friday night and I think the rest of the CCHA is glad to see the pesky, last-place Falcons eliminated. James Unger had a hat trick for Bowling Green and Brandon Scero had a hat trick for UNO, one of which was the game-winner. The No. 5 seeded Mavs were the only team to advance to the second round and will travel to No. 4 Michigan State next week.
