LU hockey’s win column remained stagnant between terms, as they were defeated three times. An away-home series with the conference-leading Milwaukee School of Engineering brought little happiness to the second-place Vikings. Losses of 7-1 and 2-1 forced Lawrence to wait until to the second-to-last series of the year for another shot at pole position. This past weekend, the Vikes fell to strong competition from UW-Stevens Point 6-3. UWSP is a strong competitor from the neighboring NCHA, a consistently strong conference. This weekend LU hosts the yearly doubleheader against St. Olaf College. In an attempt to gain more diverse support, this scribe is billing the series between the two highest academically-ranked and musically-oriented Midwestern hockey schools as “The Meeting of Music and Minds.” Games are at 7:30 on Friday and 2:00 on Saturday. Conservatory students attending the game will be given a prize at the door. Go on, I dare you.
