GAME NOTES:
UNO forward Zahn Raubenheimer, the Mavericks’ offensive dynamo last weekend at Michigan Tech who scored a goal in each of his team’s two games against the Huskies, was neutralized Saturday by UMD. Raubenheimer finished the game with no goals, two shots on target and one blocked shot…UNO, which has struggled so far this season while on the power play, now has three such goals in its past two games…UMD forward Adam Krause is the brother of UNO’s Joe Krause, who was a scratch on Saturday. Adam picked up a five-minute major penalty and a 10-minute game misconduct call in Saturday’s third period, which may have made for an interesting dinner conversation if the Krause family went out together after the game…The announced attendance Saturday at Centurylink Center was 6,022.
