Wildcats swipe three points against Alaska

The Northern Michigan Wildcats (6-4-2, 3-2-1 CCHA) took care of business at home over the weekend by grabbing three of four points from the visiting Alaska Nanooks.

Mike Santorelli and Darin Olver both scored on Friday as the 'Cats and Nanooks skated to a 2-2 tie at the Berry Events Center.

Bill Zaniboni stopped 21 of 23 shots in net for NMU.

After going 0-for-6 the previous night, the Wildcats' power play woke up on Saturday as Northern picked up a narrow 3-2 win.

Matt Maunu and Andrew Sarauer each scored with the man-advantage and Nick Sirota added an even-strength marker to lead the Wildcats.

Zaniboni had little to do in net, stopping just 12 shots for his fifth victory of the season.

The Wildcats are now unbeaten in three straight games and will embark on a busy week of action.

The 'Cats will host the Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs in non-conference action in Marquette on Wednesday night.

Then, Northern will pack up and head to the Lawson Arena in Kalamazoo for a pair of CCHA battles with Western Michigan on Friday and Saturday.
