FAIRBANKS, Alaska - The Alaska Nanooks hockey program suffered another series sweep, this time falling to the Lake Superior State Lakers over the weekend.
In Game 1, the Nanooks got off on the right foot, getting a goal from Kyle Marino close to five minutes in the opening period but after that the offense went silent resulting in their 4-1 loss.
And while the offense fell off, the special teams seemed to take a deep dive off a cliff.
They first gave up a power play goal nine minutes in, but within 13 they messed up on an advantage, allowing the Lakers to score a short hander to put themselves up 2-1.
The Nanooks then gave up two goals in the third, as the Lakers hit another short hander to close out the night.
The Nooks had six power play chances, but they couldn't seem to find the back of the net.
Game 2 wasn't much better as Alaska's issues on special teams tripped them up in their 5-2 loss.
It didn't look pretty as the Lakers scored power play goals in the first, but the Nooks responded with one of their own as Max Nexton scored off passes from Tristan Thompson and Sam Ruffin.
Then Chris Jandric hit a sweet one timer to tie up the game at 2 apiece.
But the special teams fell through again, giving up another two power play goals in the second.
And the Lakers closed out the night with a goal in the third to finish off the series.
The Nooks drop to 4-7-1-1 in the WCHA, and currently sit in seventh in the league.
Alaska will now go on a long break till they face the Northern Michigan Wildcats on January 4-5.
