Spartan Hockey Reclaims No. 1 Spot in National Polls
MSU entertains No. 5 Miami this weekend
EAST LANSING, Mich. — For the second time this season, Michigan State has ascended to the top spot in the national college hockey polls.
The Spartans (21-3-3 overall, 13-3-2 CCHA) were No. 1 for three weeks in November and December of this season before falling to Bowling Green Dec. 7. Since that loss, Michigan State is 7-1-1 and is currently working on a six-game unbeaten streak. Meanwhile, last week’s No. 1 team, North Dakota, split a weekend series against St. Cloud State.
Prior to this season, Michigan State had not been ranked No. 1 since the final polls of the 1989-90 regular season. The Spartans host a key weekend series Jan. 30-31 against No. 5 Miami at Munn Ice Arena.
