The Nanooks will play Ferris State again tonight at the Carlson Center.
There are 7 games left until the playoffs, and when asked if his team is thinking ahead at all, Head Coach Lance West had a very simple answer.
Lance West; Head Coach - Nanook Hockey>>: "No. We better not be. I mean, it's too tight right now. Five, six, or eight, whatever you want to call it. Lake State had a big win on the road at Bemidji which is a busy place, so we didn't gain any points tonight. So that's going to make these points even more important. If we're looking ahead that's a major mistake. We have to look at tomorrow night and tomorrow night only."
