11/13 Recap: Adam keeps piling; Tropp cool at Yost

Luke Adam extended his point streak to 11 games on Friday with a pair of power play goals in Cape Breton's 6-3 loss at Val-d'Or. The marks raise Adam's season numbers to 15-19-34 through 23 games, good for fourth in the QMJHL in points, and third in goals. The 6'2 pivot also collected six shots on goal while taking 12 of 19 draws for the Eagles (14-7-2-2). In Chicoutimi, Jacob Lagacé scored a goal and an assist as the Saugueneens defeated Rimouski, 4-1. Lagacé continues his impressive 1.5 ppg clip (13-14-27), and now has points in four straight since missing a week with borderline concussion symptoms. Marcus Foligno posted an assist as Sudbury put forth a strong effort but came up short in 6-5 shootout loss to Missisauga. In the CCHA, Corey Tropp scored his ninth goal of the season as Michigan State edged rival Michigan, 3-2. Booed and taunted by the rambunctious Yost Arena faithful in his first game at U-M since last January's slashing incident, Tropp's marker came off a nice deke and drag move to open up enough room to pick a high corner. The defenseman beaten on that play was Steve Kampfer - the player who was on the receiving end of Tropp's act last season. In Grand Forks, Brad Eidsness continued his early season roll with a 21-save performance as #2 North Dakota defeated St. Cloud, 4-2. Eidsness' sixth win of the season extends the Sioux's home unbeaten streak to 17 games. Sophomore defenseman Corey Fienhage again did not dress for North Dakota, but is all but guaranteed a role in Saturday's rematch after senior Chay Genoway left the game in the second period with an undisclosed injury. Genoway, UND's captain, was taken out by a high cross-check and could be concussed. Fienhage needs to play a safe, simple game as he eases himself into playing time. Nick Eno made 24 saves as Bowling Green earned their first victory of the season over Alaska-Fairbanks, 3-1. Making his second straight start , the junior made several difficult stops in what was likely his best performance since his freshman year. All signs point to Connor Knapp getting back into the Miami nets on Saturday after watching the #2 RedHawks play to a 2-2 tie with Ferris State. Justin Jokinen was even as Minnesota State suffered a 1-0 OT loss to Colorado College. Alex Biega was -2 as Harvard lost at Quinnipiac, 5-1.
