The Huskies dropped an elbow on Alaska Anchorage, lighting them up for five goals on Friday and 10 goals on Saturday. Eleven different players scored with junior Alex Petan recording his 100th career point with a third–period goal on Saturday, joining teammates Tanner Kero and Blake Pietela in the Century Club.
The Wildcats got swept by Bemidji State, including a nail-biter on Friday where they scored late only to see the goal be disallowed. NMU is on a four game losing streaking and sit below .500 with a double header at Bowling Green coming up this weekend. Here’s reaction from the Wildcats.
“There was things I didn’t like… I didn’t like our inability to convert our power plays. I didn’t like some of the turnovers we had in the second by our defensemen that created goals. But the message we sent to our guys was we need to put some pucks into the net. Let’s get some opportunities and we did that,” coach Kyle said.
“We had some turnovers and good teams take advantage of other team’s mistakes and that’s what they did tonight. I was really proud of our effort. I thought throughout the majority of the game that we dictated the pace which is something we’ve looked to do. And the way we responded in the first period was really well and in the second period, they capitalized on the chances they had and we didn’t,” Kesti said.
