Comments from BC head coach Jerry York about MSU and tonight’s game:

Â
“I like this club. Watching on film, both Lerg’s (Brian and Jeff) are instrumental in their success. Te forward (Brian), we tried very unsuccessfully to recruit him, it was one of our ventures into the Michigan area. He is a dynamic, creative player. I think their goaltender (Jeff) is a very good competitor and has played very well for them over the long periods of time. I like their size and strength. I like Justin Abdelkader. I think Rick has got a real fine team for Michigan State in the championship game.” “

“Of course, Rick and I go back a ling time and we’ve battled not only in coaching, but in the recruiting area. I admire the way he runs a program, whether at Lake State, Northern Michigan and now at Michigan State. He presents a lot of challenges to us because he is behind the bench.”
