DE PERE - St. Norbert College will face UW-Superior in a key Northern Collegiate Hockey Association series a day earlier and at a different venue than planned. The Green Knights and Yellowjackets will now play at the University of Minnesota-Duluth's new rink, Amsoil Arena, at 8 p.m. Thursday and 2:30 p.m. Friday. The games were originally scheduled for 7 p.m. Friday and 4 p.m. Saturday but could not be played at UWS' Wessman Arena due to continued refrigeration problems.

St. Norbert (15-2, 9-1 NCHA) and Superior (11-5-1, 8-2 NCHA) currently occupy the top two spots in the NCHA standings. St. Norbert head coach Tim Coghlin needs just one win to become the winningest coach in Northern Collegiate Hockey Association history. Coghlin is tied with retired Bemidji State coach Bob Peters, the namesake of the NCHA's post-season trophy Peters Cup, with 370 wins.
