The Michigan State hockey team scored three unanswered goals to rally from a 3-1 deficit and top No. 11/12 Michigan, 4-3, on Saturday night at Munn Ice Arena. Will Yanakeff turned away all 24 shots in a relief effort in goal, while Mackenzie MacEachern broke a 3-3 tie with 12:13 to play in the third period.
One of the main reasons Michigan State has had a chance to win almost every game it has played this season is solid, efficient defense. The Spartans have won three games by one goal, played seven ties, lost four games by one goal and five by two. The defensemen and forwards have combined to give MSU consistent team defense.
