The Colorado College men's hockey team looks to get back on track at Princeton (Friday-Saturday) after being swept by the University of Minnesota-Duluth last weekend.

Having taken two games at St. Cloud State in their previous series, the Tigers dropped 4-3 and 5-0 decisions to the Bulldogs, falling to 4-5-1 on the season.

Mike Haviland's team now heads to New Jersey for two key games on the road against a (1-6-3) Tigers squad that has struggled, winning just one of their first 10 games.

For a young team, the chance to get back to winning hockey is crucial with an NCHC weekend series against No. 4 Denver on tap next weekend.

"Listen, if I would have looked at it and said going into St. Cloud and Duluth we'd be 2-2, I might have taken that, I don't know," Haviland said. "I think we played really well at St. Cloud and if we threw the first period out against Duluth I thought we played OK, for the penalties we took. We want to get back to our winning ways, that's the bottom line."
