The Crazy Weekend is Over!

Wow! I admit, I did stay up to watch GameTracker for the Ohio State/Alaska game. Just towards the end of the 3rd period of a 0-0 game I realized that there was a link to the radio feed. I switched to the radio feed from Alaska just in time to hear the game winner at 19:10. The Nanooks took the series and finished the season for OSU, and that is great news for UMD! With OSU now out, UMD moves up to 13 in the all important PWR. It is going to be a crazy week and this result made it more crazy and full of opportunity for UMD. Can't wait to break down more numbers all this week. On to Saint Paul!

Go Dogs!


  1. The Nanooks win was a big win for UMD.
    I have assmbled my Go Teams for this week other than the obvious one here they are:

    Princeton vs. Cornell -> Go Big Red!
    St. Lawrence vs. Yale -> Go Bulldogs!
    Boston College vs. Boston University -> Go Terriers!
    Mass.-Lowell vs. Northeastern -> Go Huskies!
    Alaska vs. Michigan -> Go Wolverines!
    Northern Michigan vs. Notre Dame -> Go Fighting Irish!
    Wisconsin vs. Denver -> Go Pioneers!

  2. If questions:

    If tDogs win on Thursday are they a near lock for an NCAA bid?

    If tDogs lose, they will likely drop at least one spot and be out, right?

  3. Sully,

    To put it bluntly: no and no. This is going to go down to what other teams do in addition to what UMD does. As we get closer to Thursday, USCHO will have their "PWR Predictor" running where you can pick conference tournament games to see how PWR is effected. I will post when the Predictor is running.
