The Colorado College men's hockey team is still searching for consistency in 2020, having dropped six-straight games and 10 of their last 12.

"You need to hate to lose, that's he bottom line, you need to hate to lose," Head Coach Mike Haviland said. "I think if we had a couple of bounces, those games go a different way and we're not having this conversation. But we are."

It has been a tough stretch for the Tigers, having been swept by Western Michigan, Omaha and North Dakota in recent weeks. The losses have dropped CC to 8-15-1 on the season.

This weekend, St. Cloud State comes to the Broadmoor World Arena for a two-game series. Colorado College swept the Huskies earlier in the season but needs to re-discover how to finish hockey games down the stretch.

"I think that's just the next step a lot of good teams take," senior forward Nick Halloran said. "Either stepping on throats or when we're down we get back in the game. Momentum is huge, momentum is the little things too, blocking shots and getting the puck out or regardless of what it is. As long as we celebrate the little things it will add up."

Puck drop is set for 7:30 p.m. Friday night and 6 p.m. on Saturday.
