Willmar cools off Hutchinson


WILLMAR - Don't get too excited, but the Willmar Cardinals have won two in a row for the first time since the season opened in early December.

The Cardinals beat Hutchinson 2-1 Saturday 24 hours after dropping a 4-1 loss on Sauk Rapids.

Beating the Tigers with 52 minutes of all-out skating and smart playmaking is just what the Cardinals need heading into a rough week -- albeit at home -- when Alexandria (No 8 in Class A) and Brainerd invades the Civic Center.
