It's A Stalemate So Far
The Defense Doesn't Rest
BIG RAPIDS - The defense, in the early stages of the first period, has been solid for both the Bulldogs and Broncos in Ewigleben Ice Arena.
Coming up on the nine-minute mark, the two teams have combined for just five shots on goal. Both teams have had power-play opportunities, but were unable to convert on those chances. The Bulldogs have had a couple of odd-man rushes against Western netminder Riley Gill, but have not been able to drive one past him. On the opposite side, Bulldog sophomore Pat Nagle has also been solid when he has needed to be against Western.
It's still early, and you can expect higher-grade chances.
