The Rink Live's Kirsten Krull, Mick Hatten, Matt Wellens, Jess Myers, and Brad Schlossman meet to catch up on the second weekend of November college hockey action. Hatten recaps St. Cloud State's Jekyll and Hyde series against Western Michigan, Schlossman reviews North Dakota getting swept at home by Denver, Wellens tackles Minnesota Duluth's weekend split with Nebraska Omaha. Myers talks Minnesota's home split with Penn State.

Hatten and Wellens also discuss the Bulldogs sweeping the Huskies in women's hockey. Hatten talks about the historic win for SCSU over Minnesota in Andover. Myers gives a stick salute to St. Thomas for its sweep at Lindenwood.
