The Bulldogs have scored three goals in the last 15 periods of play and have gone 1-4 over that mark.

Ferris is averaging 1.43 goals per game this season, and their powerplay is working at a 1-30 clip.

Fortunately the defense has been glowing. The penalty kill is strong at 90 percent overall. CJ Motte has a .943 save percentage and a 2.01 goals allowed average on the season, and has kept the Bulldogs alive this season.
