Michigan State welcomed the UMass-Lowell River Hawks to Munn Ice Arena for their home opener of the regular season last night and came up short, losing 4-1.
The Spartans kicked off their season last weekend against Massachusetts and came up short in both games. Friday’s contest ended in a 3-1 loss, followed by a 5-2 loss on Saturday.
Head coach Tom Anastos said the team played much better on Saturday, but special teams did not have a good showing. The Spartans lacked discipline and that resulted in four power play goals by Massachusetts.
