The MSU men's hockey team has broke into the top ten of the national rankings following last weekend's sweep at Minnesota Duluth.
The Mavericks opened up with a 4-2 victory over the Bulldogs on Friday, and capped off the series with a 5-1 win on Saturday.
Coach Hastings says the team was well rested for U-M-D after having the prior weekend off.
He says it was necessary since the Mavs hadn't had a weekend off since late December.
MSU is now getting prepared for a weekend with Michigan Tech visiting Verizon Wireless Center.
The Huskies are coming off a split with Alaska-Anchorage in Houghton (Hoe-tin).
Tech has scored 18 goals in its last 3 games, so coach Hastings knows they can be a very dangerous opponent.
He says after getting swept by Wisconsin with two overtime losses in Mankato back in January, his team knows they have to be ready to take full advantage of being at home.
