It's Tormey time

Just got the line chart for tonight's MSU game at Yale, and senior Dan Tormey will get the start in goal for the first time in more than a year. Mike Zacharias had started 48 games in a row for the Mavericks but lost 5-2 Monday at Princeton.

The Mavericks are trying to snap a five-game losing streak, and a goalie change just might be the shakeup they need right now. Listening to the radio broadcast, it sounded like Zacharias gave up a soft goal -- an open shot from the blue line -- that put Princeton up 4-2 only a couple of minutes after MSU made it a one-goal game in the third period.

Still, the Mavericks have to score, too, and they've scored just two goals in each of their five losses on the current streak. They are 1-5-2 when scoring two goals.

Although the lines are slightly different than last night, the only other lineup change is on defense where freshman Cameron Cooper will play for junior Nick Canzanello.

Here are tonight's lines:

Mouillierat-Bruess-Stewart
Mueller-Galiardi-Berge
Thompson-Harrison-Louwerse
Irwin-Sackrison-Wiley

Davis-Kilburg
Boe-Youds
Friesen-Cooper

Tormey
Zacharias

While I think a change is necessary. I don't think it's in net. Some of our D needs to sit down for a couple games until they remember how to play D.
