The Husky men’s hockey team posted their first sweep of the season at the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center over the Bulldogs this weekend. SCSU defeated Minnesota Duluth 5-3 on Friday then finished the weekend with a close 4-3 victory on Saturday night.
On Friday the Huskies got out of the gate early scoring four goals in the first period against the NCHC Goaltender of the Week, Aaron Crandall. The Huskies took advantage of a power play chance early in the game when Nic Dowd scored at the 2:03 mark to make it a 1-0 game. Other goals in the period came off the sticks of Joey Benik, Kevin Gravel and Jimmy Murray. SCSU held the lead 4-0 after the first period. The second period featured UMD swapping goaltenders, putting in Matt McNeely and then starting off on the score sheet, just 22 seconds after the faceoff to slash SCSU's lead to 4-1. The Bulldogs would add another goal before the buzzer signaled the end of the second period. The third period was all St. Cloud State as the Huskies added to their 4-2 lead 39 seconds in when Murray scored his second goal of the game. Austin Farley would make it a 5-3 game with about three minutes left. UMD pulled their goaltender in hopes of magic but the Huskies held on for the win.
On Saturday night things teams seemed to be more evenly matched, trading goals before the Huskies scored late for the eventual victory. Much like game one of the series, SCSU got on the scoreboard early when Murray notched his third goal of the weekend 30 seconds into the game. The Huskies held a 1-0 lead until late in the period when the Bulldogs scored to make it a 1-1 game heading into intermission. In the second period Ethan Prow extended his point streak to seven goals with a goal that made it 2-1. Five minutes later Ryan Papa added to the lead now a 3-1 game. The Bulldogs were not going to give up as easily as Friday and came back in the period to make it a one-goal game. It was 3-2 after two periods. In the third UMD scored on the power play about five minutes into the game thanks to a five on three advantage. The Bulldogs would continue to get opportunities as the teams skated up and down the rink with a 3-3 mark on the scoreboard. Ryan Faragher stood tall between the pipes for the Huskies making every save that came his direction. With less than two minutes to play SCSU's sophomore sensation, Jonny Brodzinski netted a goal that put the Huskies up 4-3. The nail biting continued at the final minute and a half played out, SCSU once again held on for the victory and earned their first home sweep of the season.
Of note in the series, sophomore Jimmy Murray scored three goals, Ethan Prow had a goal and an assist to stretch his point-streak to seven games. David Morley also has a seven game point-streak thanks to his helpers both nights, Morley had two assists on the weekend. Nic Dowd added a goal and two assists on the weekend to extend his point streak to five games. Goaltender Ryan Faragher notched his 48th career victory on Saturday night, he is now second in the record book for the most wins in a career. The only person ahead of him is Brian Leitza who has 66 victories. The Bulldogs continue their ways in St. Cloud, MN where they have not won a game since March 9, 2011.

St. Cloud State University’s men’s hockey team took their skills on the road over the weekend for a conference battle with the Mavericks of the University of Nebraska-Omaha (UNO). It was the first conference series between the two teams, who had a previous fourteen game history that slightly favored SCSU 7-5-2. The Mavericks and Huskies will quickly build more history as they both play in the new National Collegiate Hockey Conference.
The two game series that had a variety of lead changed found St. Cloud State on top Friday night then falling Saturday. SCSU scored the first goal of the series eight minutes and two seconds after the puck dropped. It was a Kalle Kossila goal assisted by Jonny Brodzinski and Ryan Papa. Teams would head to the locker room after the first period with the Huskies leading 1-0 assistant SCSU coach, Mike Gibbons noted after the period “we can play better.”
Friday’s second period was the most-offensively charged period of the game. Both teams took their turns respectively scoring goals. Nebraska-Omaha got things started at the halfway mark when Brainerd, MN native, Josh Archibald scored, making it a 1-1 game. The Huskies responded about a minute later when Joey Benik gave the Huskies a lead again. It was Benik’s first game back in the line-up since suffering an upper body injury in Denver on January 10. The scoring didn’t end there, the Mavericks tied things up again at the 14:04 mark off the stick of Dominic Zombo. The Huskies wanted another helping and got it when Benik scored his second goal of the game with three minutes and fifteen seconds left in the second period. Benik admitted he was “a little nervous” heading into the game but also “got more comfortable in the second period.” The score was 3-2 after forty minutes of play.
Three more goals would be added in the final period of regulation. Nebraska-Omaha got things going just twenty-eight seconds into the game. The Zahn Raubenheimer goal tied the game at three each. Teams engagingly tangled up and down the ice for a majority of the period until SCSU co-captain Kevin Gravel got the game-winning goal with just under four minutes remaining. The Mavericks pulled their goalie and Brooks Bertsch added an empty-net goal to seal the deal for the Huskies 5-3. Head coach of St. Cloud State University, Bob Motzko said “it was a good road win for us” but also added the team would need to manage the puck better. The win also catapulted SCSU back to the top of NCHC standings.
Saturday’s contest found fans, players and coaches perplexed after 14 goals were scored in the contest that featured little defensive play in both ends and a roulette table between the pipes. The game was a showcase of offensive style where the last goal wins. The Mavericks took just over two minutes to get the scoring sequence started when Justin Parizek made it a 1-0 game. About two minutes later UNO would strike again when Brock Montpetit scored. The Huskies would answer soon after when Kalle Kossila scored on the power play to cut the Maverick lead in half. Mike Gibbons felt “ that power play turned the game around.” SCSU had more in store for the first period, Jimmy Murray scored to tie the game then Kossila scored again to give the Huskies a 3-2 lead before intermission.
The second period would bring four more even-strength goals but it left the Huskies trailing 5-4. It was also this period of play that began the revolving door of goaltending. Nebraka-Omaha started their freshman goaltender, Reed Peters over Kirk Thompson to begin the period. SCSU began the period with veteran Ryan Faragher in net but pulled him after he allowed two goals. The pipes then belonged to SCSU’s freshman netminder, Charlie Lindgren. Lindgren would allow just one goal before the end of the second period. The lone SCSU goal of the period belonged to David Morley. Following the second period assistant coach Mike Gibbons said the team had to “take care of the front of the net” in order to find success in the third period.
Executing coach Gibbon’s advice would prove difficult for the Huskies in the third period. St. Cloud State’s Kalle Kossila scored the first goal of the period, earning him a hat trick for the evening. Ironically, it was the first Husky hat trick since the December 7, 2012 when David Morley earned a hat trick in a 6-5 SCSU loss to the UNO Mavericks. Nebraska-Omaha would promptly respond in a big way as Zahn Raubenheimer scored. That goal would end SCSU goaltender Charlie Lindgren’s service for the evening; Ryan Faragher entered the pipes again. Dominic Zombo added to the chaos with his third goal of the night, this one on the power play, making it a 7-5 game at the halfway mark of the period. Brock Monpetit scored again for UNO with about seven minutes remaining in the game, giving the Mavericks an 8-5 lead. Cory Thorson would score with just under three minutes remaining to wrap-up the scoring in the contest. Nebraska-Omaha earned a win in the second game of the series 8-6 UNO had 44 shots in the contest compared to the Huskies 32.
The loss moves the Huskies to 14-6-4 overall with an 8-4-2 NCHC record. St. Cloud State still remains in the top spot in the conference. St. Cloud State dropped one spot in the USCHO poll this week, now ranked sixth. The Huskies will return home this upcoming weekend Feb. 7-8 for another conference series, this time against the University of Denver. Listen to this weekends action on the KVSC Sports Stream.
