Men's Hockey makes appearance in both national polls

For the first time since the third week of the season, the Concordia University Wisconsin Men's Hockey team is receiving votes in both national polls.

The Falcons are appearing in the USCHO.com poll for the third time this season and first since November 11. CUW is receiving one vote in that poll, while receiving two in the D3Hockey.com poll. The Falcons are in the D3Hockey rankings for the second time this year, also the first time since November 11.

The Northern Collegiate Hockey Association is well-represented in both polls as three teams find themselves in the Top 15, while CUW is of course receiving votes. Adrian College is ranked No. 1 in both, while St. Norbert comes in at No. 4 and St. Scholastica is No. 15.

CUW (8-4-3) is riding a school record six-game winning streak into this weekend's NCHA series against one of those three ranked teams, No. 4 St. Norbert. The Falcons will host SNC on Friday at 7 p.m. at the Ozaukee Ice Center before visiting the Green Knights on Saturday night at 7 p.m.
