Mavericks 4, Seawolves 1

Freddy's three thoughts (from afar):

1. More power: After scoring three power-play goals on Friday, the Mavericks added three more on Saturday to take control of the game. Jake Jaremko, Daniel Brickley and Marc Michaelis scored the PPGs, with the latter two getting assists as well. Minnesota State finished 6 for 12 on the power play against the Seawolves for the weekend, and impress percentage against any team.

2. Suess still going: With a short-handed goal to make it 4-1, C.J. Suess extended his point-scoring streak to eight games. In that stretch, Suess has nine goals and four assists. He now has 29 points in 22 games, failing to score in just four of MSU's games. Parker Tuomie also extended his point streak to eight games with two assists. He had a five-point weekend against Anchorage.

3. One-sided game: Friday's 5-2 win was probably closer than the score indicated, considering the Mavericks had to come from behind in the third period. Saturday's 4-1 victory wasn't that close. MSU outshot Anchorage 46-11, including a 20-2 thumping in the third period. That made for a relatively easy night for goalie Connor LaCouvee, who got his 10th win of the season and lowered his goals-against average to 1.94.
