The Ohio State men's hockey team split its series with Alaska this past weekend, losing 6-1 on Friday night and following up that loss with a 3-1 win on Saturday evening. With just a few weeks left in the regular season, the Buckeyes sit at 11-7-4 in conference play.
Tanner Fritz, Brady Hjelle, and Ryan Dzingel all chipped in with goals on Saturday as Ohio State finished with 25 shots on goal. The Buckeyes are now a point ahead of Alaska in the CCHA standings. After receiving four votes in last week's poll, it doesn't look like Ohio State will move into the top 20 quite yet.
CCHA leader Miami split its series with Western Michigan, shutting out the Broncos 4-0 in the second matchup. The Hurricanes have 47 points overall, currently holding a point lead as well on second place Western Michigan.
Minnesota, currently the No. 1 ranked team in college hockey, splits its series with St. Cloud State.
