NOTES: No Miami fan should be surprised that former RedHawks assistant Chris Bergeron has built a successful program in the northwest corner of the state despite not having Miami’s resources or playing in a power conference.
That said, here’s a telling stat: The RedHawks are 10-1-2 vs. the Falcons in the Bergeron era.
Despite its record, BGSU is just 1-2-1 in its last four games, allowing 14 goals in that span.
Mark Cooper is the Falcons’ top goal scorer with 12, and he also is tops on the team with 19 points.
Brandon Hawkins (9-9) and Matt Pohlkamp (6-12) are tied for second with 18 each.
Chris Nell has been one of the top goaltenders in college hockey this season, going 12-6-6 with a 1.74 goals-against average and a save percentage of .933.
Miami won the earlier meeting between these teams, 3-2, but that game was in Oxford. BGSU is 8-3-5 at home this season.
