Opinion: Lack of Star Power Nothing New for Izzo

Anastos: “Can We Turn the Corner?”

It has been a rocky road for Michigan State men’s ice hockey since making an appearance in the NCAA Tournament in 2012. Two subpar seasons have put Michigan State in a re-tooling phase, but coming into this season, coach Tom Anastos was feeling very optimistic about the capabilities of his team when he spoke at Media Day last Wednesday.

“I thought it was our best offseason,” Anastos said. “We challenged the guys when our season was over to go home. We didn’t have guys come back early given the renovations at Munn. We also wanted to get a nice fresh mindset before the season started. Based on our physical testing, it’s been the best in three years.” Read More…

Three Up, Three Down: Tigers’ 2014 is Done

Chris Tillman’s first inning started with three strikeouts in Game 1 to a standing ovation. Tillman was on the field two games later, jumping and celebrating to a standing, shocked Detroit.

A sweep. Baltimore over Detroit. Three games to zilch. Barely enough time to order a Detroit postseason shirt before it was over. A Vegas favorite in April tripped up and fell over the orange and black leaves in October….or were those feathers? Read More…

Men’s Hockey Ties Windsor, Falls in Shootout

In Michigan State’s opening exhibition match against the Windsor Lancers, Matt Beaudoin tied the game at two for Windsor with a power-play goal midway through the third period, which eventually forced overtime Tuesday night in front of a crowd of 3,683 at Munn Ice Arena. Nobody scored in the five-minute extra session and Windsor would win the shootout 1-0 on a goal by Spencer Pommells. The game goes in the books as a 2-2 tie.

“That was an ideal exhibition game for us,” said fourth-year head coach Tom Anastos. “It’s an experienced team. It’s an older group. A lot of those players have a lot of high-level hockey experience. As a step to get ready for our first game, I wish we could play one more like that.”
