East Lansing, Mich. - Spartan senior captain Bryan Lerg (Livonia, Mich.) was named the CCHA Player of the Week on Monday, Feb. 4. Lerg scored three goals and added two assists in the split with Nebraska-Omaha last weekend. He scored the dramatic extra-attacker goal with 1:04 remaining to send Friday’s game to overtime (an eventual 5-4 loss) , then came back with a four-point night (2g, 2a) as the Spartans rebounded with a 4-2 victory on Saturday. Saturday’s output tied his single-game best for points, and he currently owns the team’s longest point-scoring streak (six games, 5-5-10).
On Saturday, Lerg tallied his third two-goal game of the season, and first since Dec. 1 at Lake Superior. His six-game point-scoring streak (5g, 5a) is three off his career best.
