Bowling Green has one of the highest-scoring teams in the Western Hockey Association.
The Falcons are fourth in the league in scoring at 3.06 goals per game, but they've fallen on hard times offensively of late.
BG's scored three or fewer goals in six of its last eight games. And in three of the last four games, the Falcons have scored just two goals and had 26 shots or fewer.
The Falcons are 2-4-2 in those eight games, including an 0-2-2 record in their last four contests.
"It's a combination of things, but it starts with individuals needing to play better," BG coach Chris Bergeron said.
BG's top nine forwards have combined to score just six goals in the last four games, including two each by Matt Pohlkamp and Brent Tate.
"It's been one line a night (playing well) over the last four games. That's not enough," Bergeron said. "We've got other players not playing to their capabilities and not consistently for sure. I can't tell you the last time we had three of our four or even two of our four lines going at the same time."
NEXT: The Falcons host the U.S. National Under-18 team tonight in an exhibition at 7.

Toledo’s Rian Pearson hit a 14-foot jumper from the left baseline with 3.2 seconds left in the game to lift the Rockets past Bowling Green, 60-58 at the Stroh Center Thursday. PHOTO GALLERY
‘‘My hat goes off to Justin Drummond. He made a great play. He drove and brought my defender over, leaving me open,’’ Pearson said. ‘‘It felt pretty good. You had to be confident. I was confident in myself, and just let it go.’’
Toledo head coach Tod Kowalczyk said Drummond did the right thing by advancing  the ball up the floor quickly with no time outs and only 11.5 seconds left on the game clock.
‘‘He found a wide-open Pearson, who is a really good mid-range shooter,’’ Kowalczyk said. ‘‘It’s a nice way to win the game.’’
BG’s Jehvon Clarke had a long 3-pointer rim out at the buzzer.
‘‘It’s a tough, tough game to come up two points short in,’’ BG head coach Louis Orr said.
‘‘We were a play short; a free throw, a layup,’’ Orr added. ‘‘They get a shot at the end. We got a decent look at the end. It was close, but that’s baskets.’’

Babers against change that will slow down offenses PDF Print E-mail

Dino Babers, who was hired as Bowling Green's head football coach just over two months ago, is known for his high-octane offense.
And even before Falcon fans can see his offensive scheme in action, the NCAA is moving to slow it down.
The NCAA Football Rules Committee has proposed a change that will allow defensive players to substitute within the first 10 seconds of the 40-second play clock, except for the final two minutes of each half.
After the football rules committee met earlier this month, Air Force coach Troy Calhoun, the committee chairman, said pace of play had been discussed in recent years and committee members felt it was "time to act in the interests of protecting our student-athletes."
Alabama coach Nick Saban and Arkansas coach Bret Bielema, who run more traditional offenses, met with the committee and voiced their support for the proposal.
Asked why coaches who might oppose the proposal didn't meet with the committee, Calhoun said he would encourage those coaches to come forward.
That change would force the offense to wait until there were 29 seconds left on the play clock to snap the ball. If the ball is snapped prematurely, the offense would be hit with a 5-yard penalty.
''Why do they want to change the rules at all? It's the most exciting time in college football,'' Babers said. ''If I'm not mistaken we had more attendance in college football last year than ever before.

You can try to put it aside as just another game.
But it hurt when Bowling Green lost a double-digit lead at Central Michigan on Jan. 18, and the Chippewas rallied for a 82-79 overtime win.
The Falcons got a chance to show their mettle Wednesday. They avenged the heart-breaking loss, beating the Chippewas, 67-55 before 1,854 fans at the Stroh Center.
‘‘It makes a statement (in) our integrity that we aren’t going to fold,’’ BG senior Jill Stein said. ‘‘It shows the character of our team, that there is no one specific thing that’s necessarily going to make us fold. We can fight back in a lot of different situations.
‘‘It’s good going into the rest of the season, just to let people know that one loss at Central Michigan isn’t something that’s going to intimidate us or scare us, but that we’re going to keep on pushing.’’
