Huskies Open Weekend Series Against UMD Tonight in St. Cloud
The #3 St. Cloud State Huskies men's hockey team (25-6-1) hosts the UM-Duluth Bulldogs (11-14-5) tonight and tomorrow night here in St. Cloud at the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center -- in the second to last weekend in the regular season. Go Huskies!
This is the final regular season home weekend of hockey for the Huskies in St. Cloud, but SCSU has clinched home-ice throughout the NCHC playoffs -- so additional home playoff games are a guarantee in St. Cloud, leading up to the Frozen Face-off at the Target Center in Minneapolis. The Huskies closeout the regular season next weekend with a series at Colorado College.
Tonight the puck drops at 8:08 PM, and can be seen on the CBS Sports Network (Charter 807, DirecTV 221 and Dish Network 158) -- all fans are encouraged to wear black.
Saturday night beer will be available (cash only) with a puck drop at 7:07 PM; with the game televised on Fox Sports North Plus (Charter 227/827, DirecTV 668-2 and Dish Network 443/9581).
#3 St. Cloud State is tied with #4 North Dakota for first place in the NCHC. The Huskies lead the nation in goals with 140, and wins with 25. (ND plays at UN-Omaha this weekend.) The NCHC Frozen Face-off trophy will be on display this weekend at both games.
