--St. Cloud State was eliminated from the NCHC tournament Friday losing to Denver 5-4 in overtime. St. Cloud State never trailed in the game until Denver scored the game-winner in OT. In all likelihood, SCSU's season is over unless they somehow get an at-large berth in the NCAA Tournament when teams are picked on Sunday.


-- The St. Cloud Norsemen lost to the Bismarck Bobcats 5-2. Tyler Dysart and Rhys Wallin each had a goal for St. Cloud. The two teams play again on Saturday.
