The Chargers’ Movember campaign was a success, raising $1,140 toward the fight against prostate cancer and promotion of men’s health. The team’s goal this year was $1,000.

Talbot watch: Former Charger Cam Talbot made his second straight start in goal for the New York Rangers on Monday. No. 1 goalie Henrik Lundqvist wasn’t happy, but said he supported coach Alain Vigneault’s decision. Unfortunately, Talbot followed with his first off game of the season, allowing four goals in the Rangers’ 5-2 loss at home to Winnipeg. “I have to do a better job,” Talbot said afterward.

The loss broke a streak of six victories for Talbot. The sixth came Saturday in New York’s 5-2 win over Vancouver, Talbot’s first start at Madison Square Garden.

New commitment: Tyler Poulsen, a forward for the Topeka Roadrunners of the NAHL, has committed to UAH for next season, according to Chris Heisenberg’s recruiting list.

Poulsen, 20, of Arvada, Colo., has 21 points in 28 games with Topeka so far this season. He had 13 goals and 19 assists last season with Topeka, his fourth full season in the NAHL.

Update: The Topeka Roadrunners have announced Poulsen’s commitment.

Literal one-goal games: Saturday’s 1-0 loss to Western Michigan in the third-place game of the Shillelagh Tournament was only the seventh 1-0 game in UAH’s varsity hockey history, dating back to 1985 — also the sixth of this season (UAH lost to Bemidji State 1-0 on Oct. 26). Actually, all seven games occurred since 2004. UAH is now 2-5 all-time in 1-0 games.

Around the WCHA: Ferris State just keeps rolling. The Bulldogs won and tied at Northern Michigan at home to remain undefeated in WCHA play at 8-0-2. FSU stayed at No. 6 in the USCHO.com poll and No. 7 in the USA Today/USA Hockey poll. One big reason the Bulldogs keep winning: goaltender C.J. Motte.

Bemidji State remained in second while tying and losing to Miami in non-conference action at home. But Lake Superior State and Minnesota State were able to leapfrog Bowling Green after series sweeps. The Lakers, who took two from Bowling Green, rose two spots to No. 14 in the USCHO.com poll.
