ANCHORAGE, ALASKA - Brian Halonen, Jake Jackson and Alec Broetzman each tallied two points and Matt Jurusik stopped 18 shots to lead Michigan Tech to a 3-0 win over Alaska Anchorage Friday.

Brian Halonen caught a puck out of the air in front of the net, dropped it to his stick and scored on the back hand at 1:28 of the first period.

Jake Jackson put the Huskies up 2-0 when he sent a centering pass that deflected off a player for a power-play goal with 22 seconds remaining in the second.

Brian Halonen scored on a breakaway at 16:22 of the third period.

Alaska Anchorage finished 0-6 on the man-advantage, including a five-minute major penalty midway through the second period.

"We left a lot out there on the man advantage which was ultimately our undoing," said head coach Matt Curley. "5-on-5 I thought we played a real nice game and expect the same effort tomorrow, hopefully with a better result."

Tech led 22-18 in shots and finished 1-for-5 on the powerplay.

Kris Carlson made 19 saves for UAA.

The two teams will close out the weekend series Saturday at Sullivan Arena.
