What's worse than a season-ending surgery in just your second year in the NHL? Try another one barely a year later.
UNO scored nine goals in a WCHA series against #2 Colorado College, but could only manage a weekend split with the Tigers. The Mavs won a back-and-forth, 7-5 game Friday, then got behind by two goals and lost 5-2 on Saturday.
Ryan Walters got his first two goals of the season, scoring the game winner on Friday and putting the game in a temporary 2-2 tie on Saturday. Assistant Captain Matt White had two goals and two assists in the series, and Captain Terry Broadhurst added three points of his own.
After blazing to a 4-0 lead on Friday night and holding on for a 4-2 victory, the 6-1 Maverick loss to Michigan on Saturday night was something of a disappointment. Yet despite the loss, the UNO coaches have to have been pleased with the Mavs' 5-1 start.
