Bowling Green's hockey team faces a difficult mental challenge this weekend.
The Falcons host winless Alabama-Huntsville in a Western Collegiate Hockey Association series tonight and Saturday.
The Chargers are 0-14 overall and 0-8 in the league. They've scored just 13 goals and allowed 63 in those 14 games, and have been out-shot by an average margin of 37-19.
"Our focus is us," BG coach Chris Bergeron said. "We've got to find a way this week to prepare properly mentally.
"We're hoping Huntsville is going to get a very angry (BG) team, a team that is coming off getting off swept for the first time this year in a series where we had leads in both games again."
The Falcons can't afford to look past UAH.
BG is in a three-way tie for fifth place in the 10-team league with records of 6-7-3, 4-5-1,  The Falcons are 1-5-1 overall in their last seven games.
Even though the Chargers are winless, they've lost five one-goal games - to No. 6 Ferris State and Bemidji State, in the WCHA, and No. 2 St. Cloud, No. 19 Northeastern and Western Michigan in nonleague contests.

Spencer Parker is emerging as a scoring threat for the Bowling Green State University men's basketball team.
A 6-foot-7 sophomore, Parker is coming off a career-high 20-point performance in BG's 74-62 win over Western Kentucky Monday. The Falcons, 3-4, play at Xavier Saturday at 2 p.m.
"He was always going to be a confident guy, who was going to be aggressive and attack (the basket),'' BG head coach Louis Orr said. ''He has a knack of getting to the basket, and scoring around the rack.
''In this day and age, he's an attack guy, so he's going to draw fouls,'' he continued. ''He's a guy who has a lot of confidence in his ability to score.''
Parker leads the team with 45 free-throw attempts, and he was 9-of-12 from the line against WKU.
Also in the win over WKU, Parker scored the first seven points of the second half, to expand BG's lead from two to nine points in less than two minutes.
With Chauncey Orr sidelined with a knee injury, Parker has started the last six games.

While the NFL tends to dominate on Sundays at this time of the year, Bowling Green State University women's basketball fans have a month full of Sunday games to enjoy in December.
The Falcons opened December last Sunday with a 71-48 win over Monmouth in the finale of the four-game Basketball Hall of Fame Challenge.
This Sunday the Falcons, 7-1, play at home for only the second time this season, hosting UW-Milwaukee. BG also hosts Massachusetts on Dec. 15 and St. Francis (Pa.) on Dec. 29 while playing at Purdue on Dec. 22.
''It's nice to be back in Bowling Green after having seven of eight games on the road. It's nice to return to the friendly confines of the Stroh Center,'' BG head coach Jennifer Roos said. ''We have become some tested road warriors.
''Overall, I'm pleased with where we stand,'' Roos added.

The boundary cornerback is the loneliest player on the football field.
He’s out on an island in the secondary, usually matched against the opposition’s top receiver.
While some would shy away from the stress, Cameron Truss thrives on the demands of the position.
Truss is a fifth-year senior for the Bowling Green State University football team who has made 42 starts in his Falcon career.
‘‘There is a lot of pressure being there, but it’s a challenge and I love competing,’’ Truss said. ‘‘I love being there on the island, and knowing that the coaches have faith in you.’’
