The BGSU Falcons bounced back in a home and home series against the Spartans last night. Up at State the Falcons lost 5-2 and just were not able to maintain the offensive pressure needed. Saturday night at home the Falcons went down a goal in the first period. The Falcons then came back to tie the game in the second on a power play goal. The third found the Falcons again with a power play goal to take the lead early, only to have the Spartans tie up the game late with an even strength goal.
The teams played the over time even and with out a score. This plays well to BGSU as they are over 80% time victorious since the adapting the shoot out. This night was no exception, and with style fan favorite Tomas Petruska, the final shooter, a senior on the home ice in front of his home fans for the last time did not leave empty handed. He scored and won the shoot out for the Falcons.
Falcon goalie Andrew Hammond was part of the victory making 34 stops on 36 shots, and stopping all shoot out shooters.
The Falcons are on the road for the CCHA playoffs, heading to Nebraska on 3-5-2010 and 3-6-2010.
