Western Michigan hit the road last weekend and came up short with two losses at Minnesota-Duluth.
Friday night, the Broncos went down, 5-2. Chris Clackson and Patrick Galivan scored for WMU and Riley Gill stopped 28 shots in goal.
Freshman Derek Roehl assisted on Galivan's goal for his first NCAA point.
Then Saturday night, a wild game ended in heartbreak as the Bulldogs eked out a 6-5 win in overtime.
Galivan (pictured) tied the game at 5-all at 19:41 of the third period before MacGregor Sharp won it for UMD halfway through the OT.
Roehl scored twice to go along with singles from Ryan Watson and Greg Squires. Tyler Ludwig had two assists and Jerry Kuhn made 50 saves for WMU (1-3-0).
