Bulldogs Travel East to Face Miami

Split in November in Duluth is Precursor to Big Matchup in Oxford

UMD is looking to get back on track in NCHC play after a split last weekend against SCSU in Duluth.

Picks by @afiskness.  The NCHC has a full schedule this weekend with all eight teams in action.  Currently there is a three way tie for first.  How that plays out will be the story on Sunday.  UMD fans will want to see the teams above them fall and the lower seated teams pick up some wins.

#7 Minnesota Duluth at  #6 Miami:  This is the biggest series of the weekend a sweep by the Bulldogs would move them ahead of the Redhawks in the standings.  UMD plays well on the road and Miami plays good at home, so I am looking at split for the series.

#1 North Dakota @ Western Michigan:  North Dakota goes to Kalamazoo to face the Broncos and the Lawson Lunatics.  Westerns slow down style of playand being on home ice will be enough to get a split against the more skilled North Dakota Men's Hockey team.

#5 Nebraska Omaha @ Saint Cloud State:  Both teams have been playing great hockey the last few series making this a great matchup.  This looks like a split but something tells me that the Huskies will pick up a sweep.

#9 Denver vs Colorado College:  This home and home series is the final two games for the Gold Pan trophy.  I know that the Tigers are playing some better hockey, but the Pioneers have their number this year and will sweep the series.
