Minnesota State held high-scoring Minnesota Duluth to two goals, but the Mavericks still fell 2-1 in the WCHA game Friday night at the Verizon Wireless Center. The Mavericks have lost three games in a row and four WCHA games in a row.
Kael Mouillierat scored MSU's lone goal. He also had a shot on net just as the game ended.
Final shots on goal were 31-24 in favor of Duluth, who has beaten MSU three times this season. Austin Lee allowed two goals -- the first career goals for both David Grun and first-round draft choice Dylan Olsen.
The Bulldogs are now in a first-place tie in the WCHA with Denver, which was idle this weekend, while Minnesota State is tied for eighth with Alaska-Anchorage, which defeated Michigan Tech 6-2 on Friday.

Check out the replay of tonight's live blog below. Former Mavericks goalie Mike Zacharias chimed in to see what the Mavs were up to and even answered a few questions from MSU fans. Good to hear from him.
