  • Crazy ending to yesterday's game!



    Heading into the third period, both ASU and MSU were knotted at one thanks to an early goal from Sun Devil forward Dom Garcia and a response from Spartan forward Tommy Apap.

    Garcia’s goal came on the first shift of the game and 13 seconds in, while Apap’s goal came 36 seconds into the second period. That set the stage for a wild third.

    In the final frame, ASU got a big late goal from forward Chris Grando that looked like it would be the game-winner. Off a turnover in MSU’s defensive zone, Johnny Walker rifled a pass over to Grando, who tipped one home in front of the Spartan net.

    Despite a late onslaught and push from Michigan State, it appeared ASU closed the game out as the final horn sounded and the Sun Devil bench emptied to congratulate freshman goaltender Cole Brady.

    However, the officiating crew retreated and put on the video review headsets and told both teams to remain on the ice. They were going to look something over.

    With just over a minute left, the Spartans had a 6-on-4 advantage due to an extra attacker and a Sun Devil in the penalty box. The crew was looking at one play.

    On a one-timer from the right circle, MSU forward Mitchell Lewandowski let loose a rocket that was sent into a number of bodies and havoc in front of the goal. The puck appeared to ricochet off something.

    When slowed down on video replay, it was clear that Lewandowski ripped his shot and beat Brady on the glove side.

    The puck hit the back bar of the goal and bounced in and out in the blink of an eye, and the shot was in the net and past the goal line.

    “It was a unique experience,” Powers said. “You think you win a game and then we were walking off the bench and then were told it went in. We knew it went in before they called it on the ice but (when it happened) live, it happened so fast.”

    After what looked like a happy celebration due to a closeout victory, ASU was forced to head back on the ice. They didn’t let the momentum last long. The game clock was reset to 1:06.

    On the very next shift, a shot was fluttered toward Spartan netminder Drew DeRidder, and he brushed aside a rebound. Activating on the play was Semik, who came diving in and won a race to the puck.

    He proceeded to inch it over DeRidder’s pad and past the goal line to give ASU new life just 25 seconds after Michigan State had tied it. It was his second goal of the season.

    “To be honest, I just caught it from Johnny and I just wanted to get it to the net with the time remaining. It was kind of a swing and miss but I chip shotted it with an 8-iron and there we were,” Semik joked of the goal sequence.

    It would prove to be the game-winner and a sense of relief for a group that has gone through a lot this season on the road.

    • Very interesting interview with the Big Ten commissioner Kevin Warren.

      I didn't realize he had such a connection to ASU.

      • Nice update on arena construction. I stopped by it last Sunday, all the old ASU Packard baseball stadium appeared to be demolished except for the sign - a lot of great national championships history there but baseball moved over to the former "A's" & Giants spring ball stadium in 2014, progress continues.....

                • Interesting "fact"? Almost like an oxymoron......

                  Oceanside Ice Arena opened in 1974 and has been home to Sun Devil hockey since its inception in 1985. Known as one of the coldest rinks in the country, Oceanside offers a colorful history of hockey in the desert.

                  Several factors combined truly make Oceanside one of the coldest rinks in the country. Some say the extraordinary cold is caused by the extreme temperature differences between the weather outside and the temperature inside the rink. The main science behind the cold is due to a low ceiling and energy efficient block wall construction.

                      It is on the team website: https://iamasundevil.asu.edu/sports/hockey
                      Which is why I put fact in quotes, didn't see any data provided to support the claim.
