Mavs 5, Beavers 1

Another good Friday night for the Mavericks ...

They break a 1-1 tie by scoring three times during a five-minute major in the third period and add a power-play goal to help freshman goalie Phil Cook (30 saves) get a win in his first career start.

Jerad Stewart scored two goals and assisted on another and Ben Youds had three assists. Tyler Thompson, Kael Mouillierat and Tyler Pitlick also had goals for Minnesota State.

With the game tied 1-1, Bemidi's Matt Read was called for elbowing Eli Zuck in the head, and Stewart, Mouillierat and Pitlick all scored during a two-minute stretch of the major. Cook stopped a short-handed breakaway (photo above) in that stretch as well.

Now, can the Mavericks put back-to-back games together?

"We've already had that conversation," coach Troy Jutting said.

Ok great, they win Friday. HOPEFULLY the guys can remain consistent and take the momentum into Saturday and not come out flat like has happened so often this season thus far.

GO MAVS!

Ian is right on.

We don't need another Alaska or Golfer

The extra players (fresh and hungry) should be inserted in the line-up for added freshness.

We need to call in these players to contribute.
