    That should be more than enough I would guess. I know they blew leads both nights against St Cloud but all in all taking the number 1 team in the nation to overtime both nights has to give the boys a shot of confidence going into the playoffs. What is concerning is how they have a hard time keeping leads this season

    It would be close. If they sweep UNO, they likely move up to 14th, but I don't believe they will jump Minnesota. If they split in St. Paul, that might be enough to push them past the Gophers for the 13th position depending on who they beat (and obviously, highly dependent on results elsewhere). At that point, it would depend on who wins conference tournaments. Sitting at 13th, they could only afford 3 below-the-bubble winners. The NCHC and the B1G will likely have above-the-bubble winners. However, Atlantic Hockey won't, and the WCHA, Hockey East, and ECAC have a combined 5 teams above-the-bubble, so there are decent chances that those conferences will take up a 1-3 more spots.

    Ultimately, this team must make it to St. Paul to have a shot. If they play with the effort and intensity from this past weekend, there is no reason why they can't sweep the Mavs...unless they hit a half-dozen posts each game again. My main concern though is that this year's squad has played to the level of its competition and has struggled with consistency from game to game. I have my doubts, but obviously will cheer the boys on so long as there is a game to play.

    Yeah, it seems like maybe 13 is the high water point for us after this weekend, even if everything broke right. But even then we wouldn't be ahead of Minnesota.

    In an ideal world, Mankato wins the WCHA with the NMU and Bowling Green series going 3 games this weekend, Northeastern wins the Hockey East championship with Providence, BU and BC all losing this weekend, Clarkson and Cornell meet for the ECAC championship, and Notre Dame and OSU win in the B1G. Would then be in pretty good shape if we can make St. Paul, although might still need one win or a tie, which we are particularly good at this year.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    Couple statements in there that said "not career threatening." So that is good news. Probably shut down for the rest of the year though.

    Fit to be tied

    Saturday's tie was UND's 13th overtime
    game of the season, topping the school
    record of 12 set in 2000-01. The NCAA record
    for most overtime games in a season is 19, set
    by Colgate in 2008-09.

    UND is 1-2-10 in extra time this season.

    I saw Brad's post on this, so I went back and looked at that 2008-09 Colgate schedule. They only had four OT games before Christmas that year, but 15 after Christmas, including their final seven games.

    Dang where has that team been? Fun to watch a dominating win because they have been few and far between this season. No room to relax. Need to get it tomorrow and go into the X feeling real good about themselves

    Classic snatching victory from the jaws of defeat. What happens next weekend? How about just for grins win it all?
    Believe it. Earn it. Raise it.

    It was a nice weekend of hockey...first sweep in some time. I just wish the players hadn't given up on Berry.

    That being said, this squad is capable of winning some hardware...but they just have such razor thin margins. Here's to hoping they get a horseshoe stuck up their rear, ala Yale 2013, and ride it all the way to an NCHC Title and #9.

    Ya never know. That’s why they play the game. Looking forward to being at the X next weekend.
