The Chargers are 2-3-1 all-time against the Lakers. Last season in Sault Ste. Marie, UAH won the first game 2-1 before falling 0-4. This is LSSU’s second visit to Huntsville: The Lakers won a pair of one-goal games at the Von Braun Center to start the 2011-12 season.

The Lakers have split their last three series (at Bowling Green, home vs. Alaska-Anchorage, and at Northern Michigan), winning the first game and losing the second in each. They are in ninth place in the WCHA, one point behind Northern Michigan for the eighth and final playoff spot, but only sixth place behind third-place Alaska-Anchorage.

Lake Superior’s leading scorer, Alex Globke, is tied for sixth in the WCHA in points with 29 (leading all league freshmen), and tied for fourth in assists with 18. Kevin Kapalka leads the WCHA in save percentage at .931.
