Trevor Bruess scored the game-tying goal wtih 2:02 remaining in regulation, despite playing with a deep cut on the top of his foot that required three stitches to close.
"I honestly don't know if there's a tougher kid in our league," MSU coach Troy Jutting said. "They would have to cut his foot off for him not to go back in the game."
Bruess leads the Mavericks with five goals and 11 assists.
The one point put the Mavericks at 10 for the WCHA standings, but they're in ninth place, one point behind Minnesota, Michigan Tech and Wisconsin, two behind St. Cloud State and six behind Duluth.
