The last time these teams met was a wonderful time. But enough about that, because the Falcons are itching to get rid the taste of that overtime loss just four weeks ago in Bowling Green.
Last week, the Falcons finished third in the Three Rivers Classic in Pittsburgh. BG lost to No. 7 Boston College 5-0 in the semifinals before beating host Robert Morris 3-2 in the consolation game. The Falcons’ last WCHA series was at Michigan Tech three weeks ago, earning a 3-2 win and a 4-4 tie. With 14 points, Bowling Green is tied with Bemidji State for third place in the WCHA.
The Chargers have lost four straight since the win, losing 4-1 twice at home to Minnesota state, and losing 5-0 and 3-2 at No. 14 Wisconsin.
The all-time series is 8-3-1 in favor of Bowling Green. The Falcons are 3-2 in Huntsville.
