Snapped at Seven

Mavericks trample Huskies after going 7 unbeaten
The Huskies unbeaten streak is snapped at 7 games as they lose to Mankato State University Saturday night. Friday night the Huskies and the Mavericks played in an exciting game that resulted in a 3-3 tie. Drew LeBlanc stayed hot by opening the scoring on Friday night. The Mavericks quickly evened things up 1-1. Husky forward Jared Festler added a goal in before the end of the first period to make the score 2-1 at the end of the first. Garrett Roe's assist on the Festler goal was his 105th career assist. Roe now owns the assist team record, beating Ryan Lasch's ('06-'10) 104 career assists. (Congratulations Garrett Roe!) Early in the second, the Mavericks added two goals to make the score 3-2 in favor of MSU. Drew LeBlanc scored the game-tying goal at 13:16 of the second period making it 3-3. Both goalies then shut out the offense for the rest of the night. You can read more about the game here:

Additionally, Philadelphia Flyer star player (and former St. Cloud State and Sioux Falls Stampede player) Andreas Nodl was at the game Friday night. You can read more here and see the video below:

On Saturday, the Huskies looked to keep their unbeaten streak going and revive their winning ways. However, things did not work out the way they should have. The Mavericks dominated the Huskies, winning 6-2 Saturday night. Aaron Marvin and Cam Reid were the only two goal scorers for SCSU. Goalie Mike Lee was pulled about half way through as Dan Dunn took over for him. You can read more about the game here:
All I can say is that the time is now for the Huskies to come back and prove they have some great hockey left in them. It is going to be tough and the spotlight will be on senior players like Garrett Roe, Aaron Marvin, and Brett Barta. Time to shine guys!

Spotlight is on senior leadership to take the Huskies to the playoffs!
