This is it - the final weekend of the regular season for the Bemidji State men's hockey team. The opponent? BSU's biggest rival in College Hockey America - Alabama-Huntsville. The task ahead for the Beavers is clear. A glimmer of hope remains for a top two regular season league finish and a first round bye in the CHA tournament. To get there, the Beavers have to sweep Huntsville by a three goals or higher differential. Following last weekend's action UAH (18-10-2, 12-5-1 CHA) stands in first with 25 points.
For the second consecutive game the Bemidji State women's hockey team went down to the wire with national power Minnesota-Duluth, falling 4-3 Saturday at The Glas. The teams were tied 1-1 after the first period with the Bulldogs taking a 2-1 lead after the second. UMD looked to put the game away for good with a goal with just under five minutes left in the third.
It was time ... The Bemidji State men's hockey team broke out of a mid-season funk with a convincing 6-2 win over visiting Wayne State at The Glas Saturday. It was a perfect way to end a streak that saw the Beavers averaging less than two goals a game over their last nine. Six different players scored for the Beavers on a night when BSU dominated all phases. Goalie Layne Sedevie surrendered a pair of virtually meaningless third period goals after the Beavers had built a 4-0 lead.
