This is billed as a joyous time of the year, especially when there is no joy for the Alaska Nanooks hockey team. Saturday night’s dismal 6-4 loss to Bowling Green State University at the Carlson Center, ended a nine-game losing streak for the Falcons.
The 19th-ranked Nanooks aren’t going home for the holidays with happy faces. Instead, they’re heading on a two-week break with losses in three of their last four games and with a 5-4-3 league and 7-5-4 overall mark for a sixth-place tie with Ohio State in the Central Michigan Hockey Association standings.
The Nanooks visit Alaska Anchorage at Sullivan Arena on Dec. 29-30 for the final two games of this season’s Alaska Airlines Governor’s Cup series.
The Seawolves’ eight wins are two more than they had all of last season and half of this season’s wins came against nationally-ranked Western Collegiate Hockey Association opponents.
