THE ORIGINAL SIX
What you need to know about Spartan Hockey
• Michigan State hosts Long Island University on Friday and Saturday for a pair of non-conference games. LIU is in its third season playing Division I hockey, launching its program in the 2020-21 campaign. Brett Riley was named the inaugural coach of the Sharks in May 2020, and has guided his program to a 14-33-4 mark over the first two-plus seasons. This will be the first-ever series between MSU and LIU.
• The Spartans have split each of their first two weekend series against RV Bowling Green and No. 16/16 UMass-Lowell. Last weekend, the Spartans faced both prosperity and adversity – MSU took an early 3-1 lead and held on for a 4-3 win on Thursday, but fell behind 3-0 in Friday’s game before a third-period rally fell just short in a 3-2 loss to the River Hawks. MSU’s four games have all been essentially one-goal affairs, with only the empty-net goal by Bowling Green in the opener deciding a game by more than one score. MSU’s scoring defense, (2.50 goals per game) is third in the Big Ten and 19th nationally.
• Daniel Russell shared the team’s scoring lead with defenseman Matt Basgall last weekend against UMass-Lowell, each with a goal and two assists. Russell has a point in every game this season, is tied for eighth in the B1G with five points, and his three goals is tied for fourth. Basgall leads the Spartans with a +3 rating and seven blocked shots (T-sixth, B1G), and is the team’s top-scoring blueliner through four games.
• Senior Nicolas Müller is second on the team in points (4), more than halfway to his total of six a year ago. Muller played in his 100th career game against Bowling Green, and has a three-game point-scoring streak. He had two assists in the most recent game vs. UMass-Lowell and is tied for fifth in the Big Ten in assists (4).
• Senior graduate transfer Miroslav Mucha had a pair of first-period goals in the first game against UMass-Lowell, his first two goals as a Spartan and his second career multi-goal game. He previously had two last January in a game at Northern Michigan.
• Dylan St. Cyr has played in all four Spartan games this season, and owns a 2.29 GAA (fourth, B1G) and .906 save percentage (fourth, B1G). He picked up a win last Thursday behind 19 saves, and stopped 26 in Friday’s 3-2 loss. St. Cyr did stop a penalty shot early in the Friday contest. Among active Division I netminders, St. Cyr ranks sixth in career goaltender wins (28), sixth in GAA (2.10) and save percentage (.924) and fourth in shutouts (10)
