Going into last weekend, the Husky Hockey team was looking for any sort of momentum they could and they found it. The Huskies hosted a Nebraska-Omaha team, which was ranked 6th in the nation. SCSU knew they had to start fast, and they did just that. Ethan Prow would rip a shot past Ryan Massa just 8:16 into the game. 4 minutes later, Patrick Russell would tip a Prow shot in front of the net, redirecting it past Massa, and the Huskies had a 2-0 lead on 2 power play goals. The Huskies would hold a 2-1 lead until the 3rd period, then things got interesting. Tyler Vesel and Austin Ortega would score for UNO and SCSU found itself down 3-2. Then the comeback started. Blake Winiecki angled a shot between Massa's shoulder and the crossbar to tie the game and just 16 seconds later, David Morley would score to make the score 4-3. Every game that Morley has scored in, the Huskies have won, and that would prove to be the case in this game as well as Huskies win 4-3
Saturday night featured a slow start by both teams as neither could really gain any advantage. It wasn't until midway through the 2nd period that Nathan Widman fired a harmless shot that Ryan Massa misjudged and was allowed in for a goal. The Huskies would hold that lead until 13:18 in the 3rd period that Jimmy Murray would get his 3rd goal of the year. They would hold off a barrage of shots in the final few minutes of the game and killed off a 6-on-4 power play, winning 2-0. It was also the first time that Omaha had been swept all year.
The Huskies have now won 3 games straight and 6 games out of their last 8. They are also over .500 for the first time since Late October, checking in at 15-14-1. They will be on the road at the Ralph Englestad Arena this weekend.

The last time that SCSU played Nebraska-Omaha, they were swept 3-2 and 5-3. That was the last series before Christmas. Since Christmas though, the Huskies are 7-5 and trying to finish the season strong. In the last three weeks of the season, they play 3 top-ten teams, including Omaha, which is ranked 5th, North Dakota, who is 2nd, and Denver, who is ranked 9th. The Huskies are chasing Denver and Duluth for the potential of a home playoff game, but Denver is a more reasonable opponent to catch. The Huskies are 1 game back of Denver and at this point, any points they can get will help.
UNO comes in having scored the most goals in the conference at 56 while only allowing 44. The Huskies have 54 goals on the year and are 2nd in the conference in fewest goals allowed in conference played. Puck drop is set for 7:37 on Friday and 7:07 on Saturday games can be heard on KVSC 88.1 or follow along @KVSCHockey for updates.

The Huskies went to Duluth over the weekend needing to generate offense and needing to get themselves going heading down the stretch of the season. Friday's game started with a goal by Blake Winiecki with just 1 minute left to go in the 1st period. That would be the margin heading into the 3rd period when the game really broke open. Duluth would break the shutout with a goal by Jared Thomas. The Bulldogs would score again just 2 minutes later with Derik Johnson lighting the lamp and before the Huskies knew it, it was 3-1 after a Power Play Goal on a too many men penalty. Joey Benik would score at 17:52 in the 3rd, but Adam Krause would add an empty netter and the Huskies fell 4-2. Coach Motzko at the time said it was like "dying slowly by 1000 paper cuts".
Saturday night would be a different story entirely for the Huskies. David Morley would break open the scoring at 10:09 of the second period. He would also add a 2nd goal five minutes into the 3rd period. The Bulldogs would break the shutout with a goal by Austin Farley, but the Huskies would light the lamp with Patrick Russell and an empty netter by Joey Benik and upset UMD 4-1, more importantly though, they earned the split. The Huskies will welcome #5 UNO this weekend.
