Not having won a game since the new year, the Dinos men's hockey team needed a victory against the University of Manitoba Bisons. The Bisons ranked ten points ahead of the fourth-place Dinos. The games took place on Dinos' home ice Jan. 21-22.
Friday's first period started slowly, with no real action until Manitoba broke the scoreless draw with a powerplay goal 6:41 into the first. Less than a minute later, the visitors added to their lead with a short-handed goal, putting them up by a pair.
