The ISU hockey team traveled this weekend to take on the No. 1 team in the nation with coach Al Murdoch behind the bench once again. Unfortunately, the Cyclones were swept in a two-game set by Lindenwood.

The Cyclones lost Friday night by a final score of 6-2. Freshman forward Marcus Malmsten scored on the power play in the first period, and freshman forward Jake Flynn scored in the third period in a losing effort.

The Cyclones lost Saturday by a final of 2-0. The Cyclones gave up a goal in the first and second periods and kept Lindenwood scoreless in the third. The Cyclones had multiple power play opportunities but couldn’t get the puck in the net.

This was the last series of the regular season and the Cyclones are now looking forward to the Central States Collegiate Hockey League Tournament Feb. 18 to 20.
