UNO Hockey Returns Home For Eight Straight Games
Hockey pollsters have the Mavs ranked twelfth in the country. The early simulations of the Pairwise rankings have UNO third in the nation, trailing only Mankato and Minnesota-Duluth. Very impressive considering this is a team that arguably is in a rebuilding season with 11 freshman, 7 sophomores, 3 juniors, and 5 seniors. And a completely different vibe after getting shut out in an exhibition game against a Canadian team.
With a run of home games, this should be an opportunity for UNO to make a move in the conference standings. A sweep this weekend against St. Cloud moves UNO within one point of conference leaders Miami and Minnesota-Duluth, who aren't playing conference games this weekend. I suspect North Dakota will be in first place by Sunday, though.
