UNLV is having a phenomenal season at 18-3-0 but is not taking San Jose State lightly Greener said.

“When I played with coach Rob (Pallin) it always seemed liked San Jose State was a Top 5 club. So for me this is a big rivalry series (Friday, Saturday) and we need to treat the games that way. We need to finish off this semester and get two wins. If we play our game, follow the game plan and play our systems we will be fine.”

UNLV’s top line Friday will be Tristan Mayer, Cody Williams and Viktor Brask. Cody, a dynamic high-speed skater who blasts towards enemy nets, leads the Rebels with 19 goals this season. Brask has 17 goals.

“We are sticking with our same lines. We’re not messing with much because all is working very well right now,” Greener said.
