The back of the Canadian five-dollar note depicts children taking part in several winter sports including, of course, hockey. The image is accompanied by a quote from Roch Carrier's short story The Hockey Sweater: "The winters of my childhood were long, long seasons. We lived in three places – the school, the church and the skating rink – but our real life was on the skating rink."
Head Coach Dean Blais and several of his players often call hockey a funny game. A week ago Blais and the Mavs were swept for the first time all season, on the road at no. 5 Quinnipiac.
Seven days later UNO completed a conference sweep of Colorado College and found themselves atop the WCHA standings.
The 8-4 victory on Friday and the 3-1 win on Saturday pushed the Mavs from 17 conference points to 21. UNO jumped out of a three-way tie with Denver and North Dakota and past second place St. Cloud State.
