The Alaska Nanooks are rocked by Michigan Tech

By  | 

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - The Alaska Nanooks had a rough time against the Michigan Tech Huskies in a conference matchup this past weekend.
The Nooks got a great start from Gustavs Grigals in the game despite the loss.
The Nooks fell 2-1, but Grigals was on fire.
He only allowed 2 goals on 46 shots, finishing the night with 44 saves.
The Huskies' goalie only faced 20 shots, showing the disparity between the two offenses.
Ryker Leer scored Alaska's only goal in the first period off of passes from Antti Virtanen and Sum Ruffin.
The Huskies then found the back of the net late in the second on a power play to put themselves up for good.
But Game 2 was a different story.
The Nanooks were rocked by Michigan Tech 7-2 to close out the series.
Alaska looked like they were in it during the second period when they got a goal from Virtanen, but that all fell apart in a span of 5 minutes.
They gave up three goals, and one of them was even unassisted.
The third wasn't much better, as the Huskies got 3 goals, two of them coming off of power plays.
By this point the Nooks were down 7-1 to Michigan Tech, and Tristan Thompson scored 13 minutes in to the final frame, making the score 7-2.
The Nanooks drop to 2-5-1-1 with 8 points in the conference which is good enough for seventh.
Their next series is this weekend against the Ferris State Bulldogs at the Carlson Center.
