EAST LANSING - Michigan State's January surge, an undefeated 5-0-3 month of disciplined hockey, is a distant memory. They have dropped three of their last four and suffered a stinging blow last weekend, losing to Northern Michigan twice.
The Broncos of Western Michigan could be what cures the Green and White's ills this weekend. The Kalamazoo icers are last in the CCHA and have won a single game in their last 15 matchups, one of which was a 4-2 exhibition loss to the USA Junior Team.
Friday will mark the first of three final home games for the Spartans.
WHITE OUT THE WOLVERINES
Fans will get a chance to help their Spartans build momentum for the postseason with a white out Feb. 22 against Michigan. MSU faithful are encouraged to coordinate their wardrobes by wearing all white. Against the Wolverines, Michigan State hopes to break a 2001 Munn Arena attendance record of 7,121, also against UM.
SHOOT FOR A CURE
This Friday and again on Feb. 22, MSU fans can purchase $1 pucks to be entered in a contest to win a prize package donated by the Spartan hockey family. Proceeds from the sale of 200 pucks each night will benefit an initiative, started by Spartans Justin Abdelkader and Dan Sturges, to raise money for the fight against children's cancer.
The Spartans will celebrate their seniors in their final home game of the season against Bowling Green Feb. 29.
Friday, Feb. 15, 7:05 p.m. - East Lansing, Mich. (Munn Arena)
Saturday, Feb. 16, 4:35 p.m. - Kalamazoo, Mich. (Lawson Arena)
