UNO Hockey vs. Wisconsin

Feb. 11-12 UNO Hockey vs. Wisconsin Qwest Center Omaha, 455 N. 10th St. 7:37 p.m. on Fri., 7:07 p.m. on Sat. $19-$22, 280.5297, omahasteam.com. As the Mavericks continue their historic first season in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association, only a handful of hurdles remain as UNO jockeys for a postseason playoff run, including this weekend’s opponent, No. 7-ranked Wisconsin. The Badgers roll into Omaha fresh off a sweep of lowly Michigan Tech, while Omaha completed a comeback for the ages Saturday night (three goals in the final period) to sweep St. Cloud State. Captain Joey Martin leads the Mavs with 29 points, while teammate Matt Ambroz checks in with 27, as they help churn an offense that ranks third in the conference. Sophomore backstop John Faulkner has an NCAA-leading six shutouts on the season, including last Friday’s 3-0 whitewashing of the Huskies. This weekend's games could pack them to the rafters, as the program is pushing to “sell out Wisconsin” virally through SellOutWisconsin.com. With just eight regular-season games left before the conference playoffs start, UNO needs a strong showing against the Badgers to earn their second-ever trip to the NCAA Tournament, or the “big skate,” if you will.
