The men's hockey team hosted new conference opponent Western Michigan University in a pair of defensive games over the weekend. Friday's game seen an offensive explosion despite tough defense on both ends of the ice. The Huskies and the Broncos each scored five goals during the regulation portion of the game Friday. The game would need an overtime period and eventually a shoot out to determine who would get the extra conference point. No team scored in overtime and the Broncos scored the lone goal in the shoot out to earn the extra NCHC point. The game is recorded as a tie.
