Here is The Free Press story on Friday's game. Also the Wisconsin State Journal and the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
The question now is, can the Mavericks put this game behind them and win two games?
"That's going to be the tough part," goalie Mike Zacharias said after Friday's 7-1 playoff loss to Wisconsin.
Zacharias stopped a career-high 47 shots before being pulled at 4:46 of the third period. Wisconsin ended up with 66 shots on goal, the most an MSU team has ever given up in the D-I era.
Coach Troy Jutting wouldn't elaborate as to why he pulled Zacharias in a 3-0 game. However, it seemed at the time that he was living to fight another day, resting his goaltender for Saturday and -- the Mavericks hope -- Sunday.
"We were down 3-nothing and I’d already seen 50 shots tonight,” Zacharias said. “(Jutting) basically told me I needed to get rested up and shut them down tomorrow. That’s what I plan on doing.”
Said Jutting: “(Backup goalie Dan Tormey) has battled hard all year. It seemed like maybe a chance to change things up.”
