WESTERN HOCKEY LEAGUE
Vancouver 3 vs. Portland (Dubinsky) 6
There's no rest for the wicked (hot)! The Portland Winterhawks have spent their holiday week on the job, and center Brandon Dubinsky has been lighting it up like nobody's business. The Hawks forward collected a goal and two assists last night as his club topped Vancouver, 6-3. It was the sixth straight contest that Dubinsky has collected points in, and also represented the fourth time in his last five games that he has recorded a multiple-point game. Over the latest hot streak, Dubinsky has registered 11 points (four goals, seven assists). The 18-year old forward now has 14 goals and 18 assists for 32 points in 37 games, ranking tied for third on the club in scoring. Portland, which snapped a three-game losing skid with the victory, now stand at 16-18-3-4 and third place in the U.S. Division. Last night's game was the team's fifth game in six days (2-3-0).

Medicine Hat (Psurny) 5 vs. Calgary 3
Looks like the Medicine Hat Tigers have figured things out. After enduring losing streaks of four- and five-games since Thanksgiving, the Tigers have gotten healthy and are now unbeaten in six outings (5-0-1) after beating Calgary, 5-3. Roman Psurny charted his 12th marker of the season, along with two penalty minutes in the contest as the Tigers increased their Central Division record to 22-12-3-1 and currently sit in second place. Psurny ranks fifth on the Tigers with 25 points in 35 games, and is currently second among all rookie scorers in the WHL.

NCAA
Rensselaer 1 vs. Notre Dame (Walsh) 2
Notre Dame's Tim Wallace tally at 9:09 of the third period to snap a 1-1 tie and give the Fighting Irish its first win ever over the RPI Engineers by a 2-1 score on Sunday. The win gave the Irish a weekend split with the visitors from Troy, N.Y., and improved them to 5-10-4 on the season. Irish captain Mike Walsh was held scoreless, but did record two penalty minutes in the contest. Notre Dame returns to CCHA play next weekend when the Irish travel to Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., on Jan. 7-8 for a two-game series with the Lake Superior Lakers.

Minnesota 2 vs. Boston University (Roche) 1
Two of the nation's most storied programs were battling each other with national ramifications on the line. One of college hockey's great old venues was staging its final game in a history that dated back to 1971. The only thing that did not go the way the Boston University Terriers had hoped for on Sunday night was the final score as the 13th-ranked Terriers dropped a 2-1 decision to top-ranked Minnesota. Forward Ken Roche was held off the scoresheet in the game.
It was more than a game, though. It was an event as it marked the final time the Terriers would play a home game at Walter Brown Arena. Since opening the doors of Brown Arena on November 27, 1971, the Terriers had gone 362-129-37 in 528 outings.
