MSU hockey wins Game 3, 4-2, for its first Big Ten tourney series win

SOUTH BEND, IN – Michigan State’s hockey program took a big step forward Sunday night.

The Spartans won their first ever Big Ten championship series, scoring three unanswered goals and a 4-2 victory over Notre Dame in Game 3 of the best-of-3 series.

“It was great, and the guys did a good job. It’s only the second time in Big Ten history that a road team has won, so to come down again and come back and hang on, it was huge for our program,” MSU coach Adam Nightingale said. “Notre Dame is a high quality program, and I thought that was their best game in the series. We had a little bit of a bend and not a break, but that’s what this time of year is about, you have to find a way to win.”
