Denver will host Colorado College. The Pioneers have an at-large bid for the tourney booked. As much as I would love to see Denver send the Tigers home for the season, a bye week would be nice too. I think back to 2003-2004, CC beat Denver in the playoffs, Denver won the title.

CC has to play desperate.

I have CC in 3.

Well, after seeing this matchup, Atlas shrugged.


Whoever sends more fans to the F5.....that's who I hope wins.

I think we'd send more, but in reality this Denver team could probably use a break more than playing in the F5.

So you're basing who you want to win upon 10 or less fans?

No reason for me to spend hundreds to fly to Minnesota for the F5. Especially when I'm 6 months into being married and we're broke as s***. :D

Yeah, pretty much. That's about how much I care who wins this series.

I'm not surprised given DU had to resort to giving tickets away for the game today. If DU fans can barely be persuaded to go to a free game less than 30 miles away, why the hell would they pay a bunch of money to go to games 900 miles away?

11am start on the same day as the daylight savings time switch. Everyone was too hungover probably. I had to work today.

There were some gaudy statistics for several Denver players this weekend against Alaska-Anchorage.

Scott Mayfield was 1-1-2 and +4
Paul Phillips was 0-3-3 and +5
Ty Loney was 0-6-6 and +6
Shawn Ostrow was 3-1-4 and +7
Zac Larraza was 3-0-3 and +7

Nice to see seniors Shawn Ostrow and captain Paul Phillips enjoy a productive series in their final regular season games in Magness Arena.

Certainly the biggest concern for Denver is defenseman Josiah Dider's availability in the post-season. With 7:38 remaining in the third period of today's game Didier and several Alaska-Anchorage players were tangled in a mass in the faceoff circle to the glove side of goalie Chris Kamal. Didier had his right knee/leg hit as several players tumbled to the ice. Didier rose under his own power, skated to the bench while keeping his right skate off the ice and immediately went to the lockerroom. He did not return to action nor was he on the ice for the post-game handshake line.

So, more posts in this thread by gametime, or more fans at either game?

Discuss.

As a UNH/Norwich hockey fan living in Denver, I've been to several DU hockey games this season and have been surprised at the lack of attendance. With the NHL lockout and DU's strong program, I figured the place would be filled at least until the lockout was over but it didn't really happen (except for the usual rivalry games). Given the 11am start I wasn't surprised to see the student section nearly empty today but it never seems to be filled to capacity otherwise (again, except for the usual rivalry games).

Anyway, regarding this weekend, I say DU in three.

Good match up for DU. Gwoz said in the post-game interview that sometimes the motivation is hard to find in the first round of WCHA playoff series. Playing the arch-rival should take care of that. Hope everyone is healthy, and stays healthy. I pick DU in two.

As to attendance--a bigger crowd today than I expected, but a noticeable lack of students. Students won't be around next week, due to spring break. I'd expect a tame crowd of about 5000 next weekend, but the hockey should be good! Looking forward to this match up.

DU fans care more about complaining of tired jokes than they do about going to games for free.

Ahhh, but that is the brilliance of it! Think about it and what I was replying to. I am a comedic genius. I am the Vizzini of this board, except I'm not dying from iocane powder.
