Senior Night was a Success and a Sweep!

Could the night have been any better? What a great way to end the 2006-2007 regular season at the John MacInnes Student Ice Arena. With a 4-2 win over #19 Wisconsin, Tech completes yet ANOTHER sweep this season.

This game started out to be a crazy one. The Huskies' first goal came from Tyler Shelast at the :49 mark of the first period on the first shot of the game. Less than a minute later at 1:41, Justin St. Louis notches his second goal of the weekend and third of this season. Brian Elliott was immediately pulled and replaced by Shane Connelly. Elliott didn't even last two minutes...

Each Husky senior earned one point tonight. Tyler Skworchinski and Lars Helminen each had an assist, while Mike Batovanja got his second goal of the season.

Sweeping UW came at the most crucial time. Home ice is not out of reach. Unfortunately, UMN stands between Tech and home ice (not to mention UND and/or CC losing). And seeing as how the SCSU Huskies swept UMN this past weekend, the Gophers are VERY hungry for points to clinch the MacNaughton cup. They need at least a win to seal the deal.

Here's to hoping the team can get the job done this weekend. Oh, and let's go DU and SCSU!
