Victory is Spelled H-U-S-K-I-E-S

This past weekend, the Michigan Tech Hockey Huskies went to #10 Vermont to not only to play hockey, but win. So they did.

Friday night's score was 4-3 OT, while Saturday was another close one at 2-1. Goaltender Robby Nolan received his first collegiate win on Saturday night. It has definitely been an exciting weekend for Michigan Tech Hockey.

Not only has Coach Russell been talking about how this team is going to be more aggressive this year, but he has been talking a lot about how much more depth this year's team has than in the previous years. This past weekend is a great example of exactly what he was talking about. Each of the 6 MTU goals scored against the Catamounts were all scored by different Huskies. Tech racked up 16 points in Vermont, which were distributed among 12 different Huskies. Each line is making a contribution.

After this past weekend, the Huskies are now at 3-1-0, all of which have been against ranked opponents. Michigan Tech will open their WCHA schedule at home this weekend against the UAA Seawolves (2-0-2), who are coming to Houghton after a win and tie at rival UAF. This should be a great series, and not to mention Tech's third week in a row against opponents with the colors of green and gold.
