Ryan Walters (17) Dominic Zombo (14) and Josh Archibald (15) react to Walters' goal at 6:02 of the second period to give UNO a 3-0 lead.


Captian Brett Gwidt skates off the ice with 'The Spirit of the Mavericks' Cup as another captain, Matt White, looks on. Though the teams split the two games UNO led in total goals 8-7 and retianed the trophy.

But Friday Zombo, Walters and Archibald were a minus -1 on the stat sheet.  Saturday that line bounced back for a plus +4.

“Tonight I felt good,” Stolarz said.  “Everything has been good and [I’ve] been working hard in practice.  The competition with Faulks (Faulkner) and Belly (Dayn Belfour), it’s great.  We push each other in practice, and I’ve really gotten prepared for whenever my name was called.

“Winning tonight was just huge because we lost last night,” Blais said.  “We would have liked to win two games but you gotta give Minnesota State credit, too.  They’re a good hockey team, they’re probably gonna have a chance for home ice in the first round of the playoffs.  That’s a good hockey team.”
