Since splitting with the Badgers at Kohl Center in January, Minnesota has gone 6-2-0 with all of their games coming against ranked opponents. The Badgers have also gone 6-2-0, but played some unranked conference opponents in Michigan State and Michigan.

In conference play, both teams have been playing really well and getting strong performances from their top players. Both teams are in the top 2 for total O and D (Team O - Minnesota 1, Wisconsin 2; Team D - Wisconsin 1, Minnesota 2). Both teams have 2 players in the top 5 of scoring (1 - Sheehy, 3 - Kloos, 4 - Frederic, 5 - Kunin).

Both teams like to ride the momentum of scoring first. When that happens Wisconsin is 13-3-1 and Minnesota is 11-3-1.

Somewhat surprisingly, Wisconsin has a better record when playing somewhere besides Kohl Center (9-3-0) than home record (8-7-1). Minnesota likes to play at home where they are 9-2-1 as compared to 11-6-1 in away/neutral games.

Thanks KaMiGo for the research, and I hope you don't mind me stealing your post to start this thread! :D

Would it be safe to say that Wisconsin-Minnesota is the No. 1 rivalry in the Big Ten hockey conference? Not much argument at least this year, when they are battling for first place in the standings. I know I always get a little more pumped up than usual when the Badgers pay a visit to Mariucci. Really looking forward to the "Border Battle". :)

Nice try, tiggsy, but THAT is no classic! (Original in 1943 is THE classic!)

You do know that the reference you are making isn't correct, right? They don't actually say "badgers" in that one.

Gee, I didn't realize that. :rolleyes: Duh. Really, tigs? You seriously posted that?

Just making sure. I don't know what effects paint thinner has on recalling movie quotes. :D

Plus if stuff from the late 90's can be consider classic or retro these days, that movie easily makes the cut.

Exactly. And Penn State is the most overrated team in all of college hockey.
