Huskies Win 1st Game of the Season; SCSU 4-UAF 1

Huskies Beat the Nanooks 4-1 in Season Opener

The Huskies started this season off right with a win over the University of Alaska-Fairbanks Nanooks. The Huskies beat the Nanooks 4-1 in the season opener. Despite being pleased with the win, Huskies coach Bob Motzko said, "We made a load of a mistakes". One of those mistakes is failing to shoot the puck. The Huskies were outshot by the Nanooks 24-15. I don't think the Huskies registered a shot on goal until half way through the third period. In that same time period the Nanooks had put 7 or 8 on Mike Lee. The Huskies will have to shoot the puck more and NOT let up if they are going to have this same type of success against WCHA teams.  Some of the good news includes Mike Lee's strong performance in net. It doesn't seem like the off-season surgery has slowed him down any. I've hear that good things happen when goal-scoreers score. That most certainly happened during this game with Dowd, Novak, Hanowski, and LeBlanc all netting a goal. The scoring looked like this:

1st Period:
SCSU — Nic Dowd 1 (Jared Festler, Jarrod Rabey) 9:30
UAF — Cody Kunyk 1 (Aaron Gens) 13:38 (pp)
2nd Period:
SCSU — Travis Novak 1 (unassisted) 9:59 
SCSU — Ben Hanowski 1 (unassisted) 12:14
3rd Period:
SCSU — Drew LeBlanc 1 (Festler) 17:18 (en)
The Huskies will return to action tonight against WCHA opponent University of Alaska-Anchorage in the Kendall Classic finale. The game starts at 10:07 PM (CST) and can be seen at the UAA Seawolves website at


Go Huskies!!!
