After a bounce back weekend at Michigan Tech, UNO sits tied for fourth in the WCHA standings. A 3-3 tie then a 4-0 win plus struggles by Colorado College and Denver have the Mavs in fourth place, and within just five points of the top spot.
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.
In 34 games this season, UNO has scored the first goal almost as many times as they've given up the first goal. Last weekend against Minnesota, the Gophers scored first on Friday, and then UNO came back and scored first on Saturday.
