Bad 3rd Period Leads to 4-3 OT Loss at UAA

The Huskies lost their second game of the season against the University of Alaska-Anchorage at the Kendall Classic on Saturday night. The Huskies had a two goal lead going into the 3rd period. While this is very disappointing, this is the kind of thing that happens early in the season. For UAA, Mickey Spencer  (now leading the nation in goals) was the difference maker. Spencer scored 3 of the 4 UAA goals. The University of Alaska-Anchorage ends up as the official Kendall Classic Tournament winner with their win against Clarkson and OT win over the Huskies. Despite not being crowned tournament winners, SCSU fans still have plenty to be proud of. The All Tournament team consisted of:
Matt Bailey, Alaska Annchorage
Colton Beck, Alaska Fairbanks
Jared Festler, St. Cloud State
Mike Lee, St. Cloud State
Travis Novak, St. Cloud State 

Mark Pustin Alaska Anchorage
The Huskies have a lot to work on and this past weekend should be an important lesson for them.
"I liked us a lot early in the game, and this is a good lesson. We were in (Anchorage’s) building. It was their tournament and they turned up the intensity. We have to give them full credit for scratching back into it and putting the game away." ~Coach Motzko
One of the first things the Huskies will need to work on is shooting the puck. For the second straight night, the Huskies were outshot.  St. Cloud State was outshot by the Seawolves 32-24 in the game. With the Huskies significant scoring threats, they need to start putting more goals on net. Here is your scoring for Saturday nights game:
