Mavericks 5, Seawolves 2

Freddy's three thoughts (from afar):

1. Crisis averted: The Mavericks trailed 1-0 after one period and 2-1 early in the third after giving up a short-handed goals. Seemed like, despite a lopsided shot advantage, it was going to be one of those games. But MSU came to life big-time in the third period, scoring four unanswered goals to pull away from the one-win Seawolves. C.J. Suess scored two of the goals, the game-winner and an empty-netter to continue his torrid pace. He now has 28 points, including 12 goals, in 21 games.

2. Powerful stuff: Minnesota State scored three power-play goals, one each from Parker Tuomie, Jake Jaremko and Ian Scheid. They finished 3 for 7 with the man advantage, although did give up the shorty. Daniel Brickley had two assists on the power play, and Scheid also had a power-play assist. Anchorage also had a power-play goal, one that gave it its 1-0 lead. Scheid, a defenseman, and Tuomie each have five power-play goals this season, leading the Mavericks.

3. Gerads returns: Mavericks freshman Dallas Gerads returned to the lineup after missing two games after the nasty elbow to the head against Alabama Huntsville. Didn't hear his name much in the third period on the radio call (the feed was out), but the fact that he was on the line chart again was encouraging. The box score had him with three shots on goal, playing on the fourth line with Jerad Spooner and Max Coatta.

Around the WCHA: Bemidji State 3, Lake Superior State 0 ... Alaska 3, Alabama Huntsville 2 ... Michigan Tech 4, Boston College 3 ... Arizona State 7, Northern Michigan 3
