CCHA First Round â€“ Game 1, Best of 3
Western Michigan Broncos 0 @ Alaska-Fairbanks Nanooks 4
D Luke Witkowski  , WMU: 0-0-0, E, 4 PIM (hooking, cross-checking), 0 SOG
Season Totals: 30 GP, 2-4-6, -11, 65 PIM
WMU dropped the first game of a potential three game series with Alaska, getting outshot 44-16. Playing Alaska means we get to show you (again) AKFâ€™s pregame video. This polar bear does a lot of damage with a hockey stick (and F-16s). Maybe too much damage.
