College hockey roundup: Bemidji, UMD postponed by power outage


College hockey fans in Bemidji and Duluth are a little disappointed.

University of Minnesota Duluth officials have announced that a power outage at Amsoil Arena in Duluth has forced tonight's season-opener to be postponed.

The Bemidji Pioneer reports the status of Friday night's game had been in doubt since mid-afternoon. Power was cut around 2 p.m. Officials said a contractor bored into an unmarked underground cable at the arena.

The schools were scheduled to meet in a non-conference home-and-home series this weekend. Saturday's game at Sanford Arena in Bemidji remains on as scheduled.

Nebraska Omaha 3, Minnesota State 2

No. 11 Nebraska Omaha defeated No. 9 Minnesota State 3-2 in the season opener for both squads.

UNO built a 3-0 lead before Jimmy Mullin got the Mavericks on the scoreboard midway through the second. C.J. Mullin pulled MSU within a goal early in the third, but they couldn't tie it up.

The same two teams will meet up again Saturday night in Mankato.

St. Cloud State 3, Alaska-Fairbanks 0

Charlie Lindgren stopped all 14 shots he faced as St. Cloud State beat Alaska Fairbanks 3-0 on Friday night in Alaska.

Joey Benik, Blake Winiecki and Judd Peterson lit the lamp for the Huskies.

St. Cloud controlled the ice, outshooting the Nanooks 30-14.

The Huskies will meet up with Alaska Anchorage on Saturday.
