Nanooks Take 4 Points Out of Ohio State Series

I have to admit, it's kind of hard to write a recap for a series that you didn't watch. Honestly, I couldn't even listen to the games, but if the box score and various recaps around the 'net are any indication, Friday's game was a mere 10 seconds away from victory, and Saturday was a come-from-behind triumph after scoring 5 unanswered goals.

Nanooks leading scorer Kevin Petovello has been added to the injured list. I don't have anything to report at the moment, but that's two skaters off the top line that have fallen to injury. The 'Nooks roster is deep enough though that some of the guys that have filled the lower line roles have stepped up to do quite well. Sophomore forward Nik Yaremchuk was one of those players, as he earned himself a CCHA player of the week honor this week for nabbing four assists and a shorthanded goal in the series.

The Nanooks handed Ohio State their first ever loss at Nationwide arena, who are now 7-1-3 all time in that venue.

Like I said, it's kind of hard to recap games you haven't seen. So here are a few links to some recaps around the net.

Again, my apologies for really dropping the ball in this series. I should be back in Fairbanks this weekend for the bye week, and I'll post some pictures and such of what I've been up to down here in Oregon.
