The Sioux just finished their next page in the newest story of a Thursday Play-in winner going for the WCHA Championship in an exciting 4-3 win over Denver.
Highlights quickly were Evan Trupp scoring his second and third goals of the tournament breaking a 21 game scoring drought and another Sioux shorthanded goal as the game winner. That is the second straight night UND’s game winner was a shorty.
The opponent of the Sioux for tomorrow night's WCHA Championship will be Saint Cloud State who took care of the Badgers 2-0 earlier in the day.
Rankings. Right now UMD is hanging onto life at #14, but looking at the PWR Predictor things look dicey with the Michigan win. As of now, one of the key games to UMD’s last hope to get to the NCAA Tournament is to have Northern Michigan beat Michigan in the CCHA final. If Michigan wins, it is a sealed season for the Bulldogs.
