HUSKIES DROP WEEKEND SERIES WITH #2 Illinois State

 
The Saturday afternoon contest saw the Huskies play ISU in the US Cellular Coliseum, with the Redbirds wearing pink jerseys in honor of Breat Cancer Awareness month.  The Huskies came out with vengeance as they score 13 seconds into the game, with a goal by Chris Bednarek.  The game was very much back and forth, with both teams having many power-play attempts.  Going into the third period it was a 4-3 ISU lead.  Despite playing the Redbirds close the Huskies could not take advantage of their opportunities in the third, and the Redbirds defeated the Huskies 6-3.  Alex Alessi was in net for the Huskies, stopping 26 of the 31 shots he faced.
 
The Huskies this week will play a home game on Thursday evening vs. University of Wisconsin at 8:45pm, and then travel Friday evening to Bensenville to play RMU-Black.
