Two things pretty amazing things stuck out to me after Minnesota State's 2-0 win over Alaska-Anchorage late Saturday night.
First of all, Mike Zacharias' shutout was the first time MSU recorded a shutout on the road since Jason Jensen shut out North Dakota 6-0 on December 1st, 2001 to complete a weekend sweep at the brand-new Ralph Englestad Arena. If you're a North Dakota fan, you may remember that has the year that sucked.
Second, when Mick Berge scored MSU's second goal, midway through the second period, he was the first upperclassmen on MSU's team to register a point on the season. That means that the Mavericks, who had only scored 4 goals prior to that point, had gone 209 minutes and 26 seconds without an offensive contribution from a junior or senior. The good news for the Mavericks is that four different freshmen and five different sophomores have already found their way onto the scoresheet.
