The St. Cloud State men’s hockey team remains undefeated on the road this season after a weekend sweep in Duluth. The Huskies played the Bulldogs for the first time in NCHC play.
Friday night the Huskies narrowly escaped with the 4-2 victory forced to battle back the first two periods. Nic Dowd notched the Huskies first goal of the game on the power play in the first period to make it 1-1. The Bulldogs got a power play goal of their own by Justin Crandall in the second to regain the lead. It was short lived however, as Kalle Kossila scored another Husky power play goal to tie things up again. Jonny Brodzinski struck just under four minutes into the third period to give the Huskies their first lead of the game. His goal proved to be the game winning goal as UMD was held off the scoreboard. Brodzinski added an empty-net goal with less than a minutes left for good measure. SCSU fought with the Bulldogs coming out on top 4-2.
Saturday’s game belonged to SCSU from the start as they scored early and often skating to a 5-1 victory. Jimmy Murray got things going for the Huskies with his first goal of the season half-way through the opening frame. SCSU kept the throttle down as Brooks Bertsch and David Morley added goals in the second period to extend the Huskies lead. Charlie Sampair scored for UMD to cut the lead to 3-1 before the buzzer sounded to end the second period. SCSU came out flying in the third as Cory Thorson netting a goal just 33 seconds into the period, extending SCSU's lead to 4-1. The final goal of the game came off Husky freshman Ryan Papa's stick to seal the deal and make the final score 5-1. The Huskies were outshot 27-20 in the contest. David Morley had a goal and two assists for three points in the game.
SCSU's defense gave up just three goals over the weekend. Senior, co-captain Kevin Gravel and goaltender Ryan Faragher both played a large part in that feat. Both have been named NCHC players of the week. Gravel is the NCHC Defenseman of the Week after blocking a pair of shots and notching three assists. He had a +5 rating on the weekend, it's the second time this season Gravel has earned the Defenseman of the Week award. The first coming after the opening weekend of play (Oct 7-13). Goaltender Ryan Faragher has also been honored this week as the Goaltender of the Week, like Gravel it's the second time this season. The first time Faragher had the honor was the week of Oct. 28-Nov. 3. Faragher posted 55 saves on the weekend, averaging 1.5 goals-against with a .948 save percentage. He played all 120 minutes in net for the Huskies during the series.

Every season we ask our Twitter followers who they think will score during the SCSU men’s hockey games. This season we’ve added a new twist to our “Picks to Click” segment.
We encourage fans to follow KVSC Hockey on Twitter and play along each game that we cover. The rules are simple and it’s for bragging rights to find out who the real ‘expert(s)’ might be at the end of the hockey season.
For each men’s hockey game that the KVSC Sports Department covers (see complete list of scheduled games here) fans can submit their picks via Twitter. Each fan is allowed to select one player as their own "Pick to Click." We’ll call for picks about two hours prior to puck drop; fans can join the fun by mentioning @KVSCHockey via Twitter letting us know what player you think will score.
Each night we’ll tally the fan votes to see what Husky has the most ‘picks.’ Whoever the fans vote for the most will be the ‘fan choice’ for the night. The fans will play against the KVSC Sports Department crew for the entire season. Each time the “Pick to Click” player scores during the game whomever selected that player during the given game will receive one point. Shoot out goals do not count towards points in the “Pick to Click” challenge, only regulation and overtime goals will count for points.
After the first weekend in the “Pick to Click” challenge Assistant Sports Director, Declan Goff, has a 2 point lead.
