ST. CLOUD, Minn. — The St. Cloud State men's hockey team is looking to snap a 1-4 stretch against Western Michigan that includes getting swept Nov. 19-20 in Kalamazoo. The Broncos (11-5-0 NCHC, 19-6-0 overall) have gone 13-2 in their last 15 games, which includes getting a split Jan. 28-29 at Minnesota Duluth. The Huskies (6-7-2, 14-9-2) are coming off a tie against the Bulldogs on Tuesday that included picking up the extra point with a shootout win at the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center.

This will be the fourth game that SCSU has played without head coach Brett Larson, senior forward Sam Hentges and senior defenseman Nick Perbix, who are with Team USA at the Olympics. Team USA plays Canada at 10:10 p.m. Friday (USA Network) in Beijing.
