It was a relatively quiet first few minutes of the game for both teams, but the Marquette Redmen were having to fight through some laziness after not playing for more than days due to schedule changes. Lines were switched around to help balance players who were more worn out after the previous night’s contest that ended in a shootout. The Redmen were called for an interference penalty midway through the first period, but they played some great defense to prevent any scoring. The first period ended with little fanfare, and the game would be reset going into the second.
