GAME NOTES:
Stolarz can consider himself unlucky opening his first year at UNO with an 0-2 record. The freshman netminder justified the decision to start him, making 21 saves in a decent performance…Both UNO and NMU watched their power play units struggle this weekend. The Mavericks went 1-for-7 over the two games, and the Wildcats were a dismal 0-for-11 when playing with a numerical advantage.
