The Nebraska-Omaha hockey team finally returns to home ice after 5 weeks after going 0-2-2 on the road the last two weeks. Last weekend at Lake Superior State was especially frustrating as UNO let 2 hird period leads slip away both nights...turning a potential 4 point weekend into just 1.
The good news for UNO is that last place Bowling Green is coming to Omaha this weekend. Last month, UNO swept the Falcons on their home ice, winning 4-1 Friday and 7-1 Saturday. MavRick compiled the Saturday night carnage on YouTube:
UNO's 8-9-6 record is a little tough to stomach at this point; certainly this is a better team than the record indicates. Certainly better than #17 Niagara, who UNO throttled 10-1 back in October in a game that wasn't even that close. UNO is going to need to make up a lot of ground over the next few weeks to reclaim home ice for the playoffs. They can't continue to let games slip away.
