Straight From the Coach's Mouth:
"We came out with a lot of jump and created a lot of opportunities," said head coach Mykul Haun. "Once the game got settled in it seemed like we just didn't get the lucky bounces. Colby came out with a great puck possession game which allowed them to control the pace and tempo."
- The Panthers have a short turnaround as they host Trinity College tomorrow night (Jan. 6) at 6:00 p.m.
