Hats Off To Thee Seth Helgeson!
Gophers play one of their worst games of the season, and with the loss- and yet another SCSU win- need a miracle to keep MacNaughton Cup. Of more concern now is maintaining a top three spot finish in the WCHA and a 1 seed in the NCAA tourney.
The long-time WCHA foes meet for the final time in the regular season as 2nd place Minnesota hosts sixth place Denver. Friday night at 7pm on BTN and Saturday night at the same time over on FSN.
Scott McLaughlin from College Hockey News stops by to talk about the weekend match-up with DU, college hockey realignment, and who he thinks as the best rivalry in all of college hockey.
This likely cements Mike Eaves' demise as the loss virtually assures Wisconsin will miss the NCAA tourney for a third straight year. Oh and the Gophs' are still #2 in the Polls and Pairwise.
One point closer to the top. That's what Minnesota achieved with last night's 2-2 tie with Minnesota-Duluth in a three-point weekend. Mike Reilly and Tom Serratore scored for Minnesota while Adam Wilcox made a career-high 35 saves.
