Surging Mavs sweep Wisconsin

The Mavs had a chance to make some serious program history this past weekend given UNO's push for a sell out game and an arena packed with more than 25,000 fans in two games. The Mavs didn't disappoint, and took two important conference wins against the No. 7 Wisconsin Badgers.


Playoff hockey, get on board

For hockey fans, springtime is always the best time of the year.  Whether your team is in or not, the NHL playoffs are the best thing in sports.


UNO hockey: so close to something big

No matter the sport, every team that becomes a championship dynasty has that one heartbreaking loss just before its dreams are realized.


Michigan ends UNO season in overtime

St. Louis - After a summer of preparation, 38 games of competition and 2,352 minutes of game time, the UNO hockey season came down to a span of just 10 minutes and 21 seconds.  In that short time span, the hopes and dreams of a Frozen Four appearance and potential national championship were wiped away.


Redeem Team

Though a weekend playoff sweep to Bemidji State puts UNO squarely on the NCAA tournament bubble, Dean Blais and the Mavs returned to business as usual on Monday afternoon.  With conference tournaments this week and selection Sunday approaching, the team is hopeful they've done enough to earn a spot in hockey's big dance.


Dean of victory

When Dean Blais was hired as UNO's head hockey coach two summers ago there was an immediate shift in expectations.  In the 12-year history of the program, UNO had been to the NCAA tournament just once and finished with 20 or more wins only three times.


Mavs split at Duluth, lock up third in first season with WCHA

UNO's 5-2 victory Saturday night earned the Mavs a split in their final conference series at No. 11 Minnesota-Duluth and sole possession of third place in the WCHA.  It's the highest conference finish the team has ever had in the 14-year history of UNO hockey.


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.
