UMD Pregame...Just In Time

Bulldogs Face Michigan for National Championship

Michigan is on a run that no one expected…at least in the USCHO bracket Challenge. This will be the Wolverine’s fourth NCAA Tourney game this season and all have been against WCHA teams.

The Frozen Four was heralded as an all West grouping and that was amazing and exciting on its own. Now put in the streak of teams that Michigan has gone up against and it becomes ridiculous.

So are the Bulldogs the WCHA team to stand up to the maize and blue and put a stop to their winning streak? We humbly say, “Yes.”

Tonight’s game will again tilt on the play of special teams and UMD has that edge.

After following the Bulldogs all year, and for many years prior, it is exciting and nerve wracking to be at the game tonight. But it also an honor to bring the stories of this team to our readers and to be at a part of UMD Hockey history. We predict it will be history on a new page, the one titled “National Champions.”
