The Big Red Rewind:

• Cornell started its regular season last weekend with a pair of non-league losses to Michigan State, marking the program's first 0-2 start since 2010-11 (which ended with an ECAC Hockey championship game berth). • Max Andreev's goal tied Friday's opener at 1 heading into the third period before the Spartans rattled off four straight goals in the final frame to secure a 5-2 victory. Matt Cairns capped the scoring with his first goal on Lynah ice. • Michigan State then scored four straight again in the rematch, then held off a frenetic Cornell rally for a 4-3 victory. Yanni Kaldis scored twice on the power play, the second of which followed Cam Donaldson's unassisted goal to cut Cornell's three-goal deficit to one with five minutes to play. • It was the first time Cornell surrendered nine goals in a two-game weekend since Jan. 22-23, 2016, when it dropped games to Harvard and Dartmouth.
