Sun Devil Hockey was unable to get on the board in the series finale against No. 5 St. Cloud State, falling 7-0.
"That is a great hockey team," head coach Greg Powers said. "We know what we need to keep building towards and that series just prepared us for a huge home week of hockey. We are looking forward to finally being able to play some NCAA games in front of our fans this week."
Junior Robert Levin and freshman David Jacobson split time in net, combining to make 44 saves on the night. Offensively, the Sun Devils 29 shots on goal were their most since they had 31 against Lake Superior State Nov. 14.
St. Cloud State scored twice in the first period on the power play then had three even-strength goals in the second. The third period saw the Huskies' final two goals to bring the game to its final score.
ASU has a quick turnaround, facing UCONN Tuesday, Jan. 5 at Oceanside Ice Arena. The Sun Devils will then play its opening round of the Desert Hockey Classic Jan. 8 against Yale at Gila River Arena.
