When most of us look for gifts for mom, we spend time at the mall or online browsing for that one perfect item.  Some of us are better at it than others.
But despite your ability to surprise, it would be wise not to try and compare yourself to Zahn Raubenheimer.  Collector's items, all day trips to the health spa or tickets for an exotic cruise are no doubt impressive.
But those all seem considerably mediocre compared to a zebra.

Purslow brings consistency, tenacity

Leadership was a priority for the Mavs coming into the 2010 hockey season. There was the move to a new conference, the addition of 10 freshmen to the lineup and a five-year gap since the team last played in the NCAA tournament.

Stolarz leaves Mavs for Major Junior Hockey

Monday afternoon head coach Dean Blais announced that the Mavs will lose freshman goaltender Anthony Stolarz to Major Junior Hockey. Stolarz is leaving UNO to play with the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League.

WCHA Weekend Roundup

UNO had played Bemidji State 16 times before the 2012-2013 season.  Series-wise the two teams are pretty close with the Beavers holding a 7-6-3 all-time record against the Mavs.
But as UNO fans well know, Bemidji has had the best of the Mavs ever since the two teams joined the WCHA in 2010.  In 10 conference matchups prior to this season UNO had won a grand total of one game, a 5-1 victory in Bemidji on Nov. 12, 2011.
It took eight tries before Omaha won a WCHA game against the Beavers.  Their best results before that were two ties.

Hockey to face North Dakota outdoors at TD Ameritrade in 2013

After months, perhaps years of speculation, an announcement was made Tuesday afternoon confirming an outdoor hockey game at TD Ameritrade Park in 2013.  On Saturday, Feb. 9, 2013 the Lincoln Stars will play the Omaha Lancers and the University of North Dakota will play UNO at an ice rink that will be constructed on the field of the downtown ballpark.

Gopher holed

For the first time since last season's WCHA playoffs, an opponent came to Omaha and skated away with a sweep of UNO.  After seemingly solidifying home ice with a split last week at Colorado College, back-to-back 3-2 losses to Minnesota have home ice in jeopardy heading into the final week of the regular season.
