Time for a pep talk, or for a little inspiration? With UNO having lost five straight home games during a 2-5 slump when the only wins were at last-place Alaska-Anchorage, who better to check in with than the senior co-captain? The Mavericks entered last weekend tied for third in the WCHA, one point out of second, but slid to sixth place, one point ahead of Denver, after being swept by Wisconsin 4-3 and 6-2. UNO tries to secure one of six home-ice berths for the first round of the WCHA playoffs during a series this weekend at Minnesota-Duluth and the leadership of Gwidt, a forward from Minocqua, Wis., should be a focal point.
Q: Could you have imagined going into the weekend that things could have turned this much?
