The zero still looms in the win column as the St. Cloud State Women’s Hockey team again came up winless in a road series at the University of Minnesota. The Golden Gophers beat the punchless Huskies 8-0 on Friday and 4-1 on Saturday.
The Huskies were without the services of some key players with Brittany Toor and Jaclyn Daggit both missing Friday’s game.

Minnesota scored first but SCSU’s Molli Mott tied the game with her fourth goal of the season in the second period. However the Gophers pulled away for the 4-1 win. The Huskies sit at 0-28-1 on the season.
With time winding down to get a win, St. Cloud State returns home this weekend to play host to Minnesota State. SCSU sits at eighth in the WCHA and MSU seventh, so this is likely the Huskies best chance to get a victory.

Just when things were looking up for the St. Cloud State Men’s hockey team, the tides have taken a turn for the worse. Two weeks ago the squad was the hottest team in the country riding a six game win streak. Today they sit winless in their last four and losers of three straight after getting swept by the #18 Nebraska-Omaha Mavericks.

FRIDAY-UNO 3, SCSU 0
Friday saw St. Cloud State fall apart in the second period allowing three goals to the Mavericks in a span of 1:40.

SATURDAY- UNO 4, SCSU 3
The Huskies took the ice Saturday with vengeance and quickly regained their scoring touch. Given a five minute major powerplay, David Eddy opened the scoring for St. Cloud State with the extra skater to give the Huskies a 1-0 lead. Eddy wouldn’t be finished as he added an assist on Garrett Roe’s tally just over halfway through the period. The period finished with Drew LeBlanc deflecting a Taylor Johnson shot in for the goal to put SCSU up 3-0 after the first frame.
The Mavericks added a second period goal to cut the deficit to only two, and in the third period the wheels came off for the Huskies again. Lee faced 55 shots on the night and the SCSU goalie did all he could, but couldn’t stop the barrage. The Mavericks scored three goals in just under four minutes midway through the period to turn the tables on the Huskies and went on to win 4-3.
With the loss St. Cloud falls to 11-13-3 and drops to ninth place in the WCHA. St. Cloud returns to action this weekend in Duluth against the #3 UMD Bulldogs. For updates on these games follow us on Twitter.

FRIDAY- OSU 6, SCSU 1
The Huskies hung with Ohio State for two periods as they entered the second intermission down 3-0. OSU’s Natalie Spooner scored two of her three goals in the game in the final frame in leading the Buckeyes to victory. Despite the lopsided final score, the Huskies matched the Buckeyes with 32 shots on goal, and broke a scoring drought that had reached 298 minutes when Julia Gilbert scored her fourth goal of the season late in the third period to keep SCSU from being shut out.
SATURDAY- OSU 3, SCSU 2

St. Cloud State was riding a six-game win streak; Minnesota State hadn’t won in six games and was going into a tough road matchup against the Huskies. On paper, this series looked to be tilting SCSU’s way but Husky fans were harshly reminded that in the WCHA, nothing is guaranteed as the Huskies tied MSU on Friday 3-3 then were blown out Saturday 6-2.
Friday night saw a great hockey game as both teams went back and forth on the scoreboard. Leading scorer Drew LeBlanc opened up the scoring for SCSU in the first period and after a Maverick goal, St. Cloud’s Jared Festler lit the lamp to make it 2-1 after one period of play. Garrett Roe picked up his 105th career assist on the goal, putting him in first place on the all-time assist chart in SCSU hockey history. Two goals by Minnesota State and another goal by LeBlanc made it a 3-3 game and that’s how it would end.
Saturday it was all Mavericks as SCSU was blown out 6-2 in front of just under six-thousand fans at the National Hockey Center. The Huskies saw their seven game unbeaten streak snap as the Mavericks led 4-0 after two periods. SCSU got goals from Aaron Marvin (his first since November 6th) and Cam Reid but it wasn’t enough. Maverick netminder Phil Cook made 29 saves in the victory as MSU moved to 5-11-4 in the WCHA.
SCSU is now 11-12-3 overall and 7-9-2 in conference play. The Huskies will hit the road this weekend to take on 15th ranked Nebraska-Omaha. For updates on that series check out KVSC hockey’s twitter page at twitter.com/kvschockey.

Brett Putz showed up to play for SCSU on Friday as he led all scorers with 23 points in the victory over WSC. Andrew Bernstetter fell a rebound shy of a double-double as he notched 12 points and nine boards as St. Cloud extended its win streak to five games.

A new year continues to be kind to the St. Cloud State Men’s Hockey team.

St. Cloud beat the Beavers by scores of 2-1 in overtime Friday, and 5-1 on Saturday from the Sanford Center in Bemidji.
FRIDAY- SCSU 2, BSU 1- OT
Friday’s game saw the teams trade goals in the second period to knot the game at 1-1 and regulation would end in a deadlock. Late in overtime SCSU’s Nic Dowd collected a Jared Festler rebound, and fired a turnaround shot the found the back of the net to give SCSU a 2-1 win with only 28 seconds on the clock.
SATURDAY- SCSU 5, BSU 1
Saturday’s game was nothing but close as SCSU brought out the brooms for the second straight weekend as the Huskies scored the game’s first five goals. David Eddy tallied twice, and Garrett Roe, Cam Reid, and Jordy Christian also scored as SCSU rolled to a 5-1 win and evened their record to five-hundred on the season at 11-11-2.
In the streak, Mike Lee has started every game in goal and only allowed nine goals in the six victories. St. Cloud has notched 23 goals in the winning streak that has pulled them to eighth in the WCHA and only one point out of sixth, which would land them home ice advantage for the WCHA playoffs.
