Nice night for Penn State freshman forward Casey Bailey of Anchorage, who had a hand in all his club's goals in a 3-2 victory at Michigan State.

Bailey served up the game-tying goal in the third period and then the primary assist on the game winner to wrap a 1-2--3 night. He is tied for first on the team in goals with 12 and owns the team lead in points with 23 points in 23 games.

Goaltender Steve Summerhays of Anchorage helped No. 7-ranked Notre Dame end a five-game losing streak by stopping 22 shots in a 5-2 win over Ferris State,

On the women's college side, Zoe Hickel of Anchorage furnished Minnesota-Duluth with a power-play strike in a 3-2 win at Ohio State. With 10-10--20d totals in 23 games, she leads the Bulldogs in goals and is tied for the team lead in points.

On the minor-league pro side, former Alaska Aces winger Scott Howes scored for the third straight game for AHL Springfield, which fell 3-2 at Connecticut.

Tim Wallace of Anchoragae scored his ninth goal of the season for AHL Charlotte in a 5-4 win over Abbotsford, which got a goal from former Aces winger Tyler Ruegsegger. Wallace owns 9-10--19 totals in 41 games. Ruegsegger is 4-2--6 in 35 games.

We'll note one game in the ECHL because it was so full of Alaska connections.

For Orlando, former Aces center Ryan Cruthers had one goal and one assist before getting the gate for a boarding major in the third period. Former Aces blueliner Derick Martin, one of the real good guys, went -3 and former Aces defenseman Alain Goulet was -1.
