Series Preview: Omaha at Alaska Anchorage, Oct. 31-Nov. 1, 2019

#HockeyHalloween! Following a bye week, the Mavericks made the long trek to Alaska on Tuesday to prepare for their unusual Thursday/Friday series versus Alaska Anchorage. Both games begin at 10:07 p.m. Omaha time.

The Mavs last played Ohio State University Oct. 18-19, splitting the series with the 12/13 OSU. The Mavs lost in a close Friday game 3-2 but won Saturday night’s game 2-1. Isaiah Saville had a stellar weekend, making 24 saves Friday and 37 saves Saturday. 

Omaha is 3-1-0 on the season so far, while Alaska Anchorage is 1-3-0. Last weekend, the Seawolves split a series with in-state rival Alaska. The Mavs have a long history with Alaska Anchorage — UNO is 8-2-1 all-time against the team. UNO swept Alaska Anchorage last December in a series in Omaha. The team is 3-1-1 in Anchorage.

Two Mavs will be returning to play in their home state: Saville is from Anchorage and freshman forward Josh Boyer is from Wasilla, Alaska.

There was no Weekly Media Availability posted again this week.
