What's that popular saying about everyone loving a comeback? In UNO's four road games, the Mavs have fallen behind every time.
Four times they have fallen behind 3-0, and three of those times they have failed to mount a comeback. But winning, as John Madden said, is a great deodorant.
Terry Broadhurst continued his assault on the UNO record book, and the Mavs skated away from a weekend series against Saint Cloud St. with three out of four points. Broadhurst's late goal on Saturday propelled UNO to a 4-3 lead, and the two teams ended the series with a 2-2 deadlock Sunday afternoon.
The announcement of the NHL and the Players Association reaching an agreement to end the lockout in the early hours of Jan. 6 came with quite a few sighs of relief. It also came with a lot of fists clenched in frustration.
The problem is, none of us knows exactly where to direct that frustration. While it's undeniable that some of the frustration will be pointed towards Commissioner Gary Bettman (who gets booed at arenas across the league), the rest is not as clear.
Whenever any sport goes through a lockout, or a strike, it comes down to millionaires versus billionaires. The easy target is owners and the league.
There's nothing like raining on someone else's parade to start a late-season run. A week after Bemidji St. came to Omaha and ran their record at the CenturyLink Center to 5-0-1 all-time, UNO traveled to Houghton, Mich. and ruined the celebration.
