Sophomore forward Michael Regush scored twice and freshman defenseman Sam Malinski scored his first collegiate goal to put the finishing touches on the Cornell men’s hockey team’s 6-2 rout of Michigan State on Saturday night at Munn Ice Arena.
The Big Red scored three times on the power play to wrap up a weekend series in which it went 5-for-14 on the man advantage to power a sweep of the Spartans – effectively returning the favor after Michigan State stunned Cornell with a pair of victories to begin last season at Lynah Rink.
Junior goaltender Matthew Galajda made 21 saves to earn the victory, only conceding a pair of Michigan State power-play goals after Cornell had built a five-goal lead. Malinski, who also had two assists to lead the Big Red offensively with three points, then essentially iced the game by scoring with 6:50 left.
