Not a whole lot of substance here.... My guess is that people, like myself, don't know what to even begin to say about this game.

WMU comes off a road sweep at tUMD... A feat achieved by many this year but wins convincing enough to make the argument the Broncos might finally be peaking at the right time. I think the seniors are really driving everyone on this team to keep grinding out wins to keep putting games on the schedule. The Broncos are dangerous... They deserve to be in the frozen faceoff. We're 4-0-1 this year on neutral Ice and I know of a few Lunatics who will be in attendance.

DU beat the Broncos 3x this year before Western got some puck luck in the third period of the last game. The played a tough UNO team to get to the Frozen Faceoff and they're looking to put more games on the schedule just like te Broncos.

Game could go either way, I think think the fact the Site is neutral tips the ice in favor of the Broncos. But our record against DU is keeping me grounded. Maybe Balisy and the rest of the Broncos can figure out how beat this team again. I have nothing against Denver, but if we lose I want Miami to take it all. CCHA brotherhood lives on!

So you tout the ButtHurt Conference in one thread in a feeble attempt to troll former CCHA opponents and then come in here and are all "CCHA sisterhood" nonsense?

Also ... you live in Detroit.

I like Miami, they're not goons like Ferris. Miami would probably be a one seed if they played the same schedule Ferris did, infact they'd probably beat out Minne for the overall number one seed because they have the talent to win the games Ferris couldn't. Your argument is weak.

Also ... I live in Detroit, Palmer Woods neighborhood. Whats your point?

With 2 wins this weekend, Denver could keep its 12 year 20 game win streak intact and That would mean another trip to the NCAAs.
:):cool:

DU has played only 1 game on neutral ice and lost in OT 3-2 to UAA in Fairbanks back in October.

DU and WMU last met 2/28 and 3/1 in Kalamazoo.
Pios won Friday 4-2. Broncos won Saturday 3-1.
Series total score 5-5

Does this portend a close game?

Good game, only 3 penalties, lots of goals and hits, changes in momentum galore. Neither team gave up and WMU's last minute flurry in the 3rd had my stomach in knots.

Good luck Broncos unril we meet again.
