Updated PairWise, and BSU is up to #3, sure helps to sweep the #4 team in the country :). Not that the rankings mean anything in the end, but i wonder where the Beavers end up, were #14 last week, I would think we go into the Top 10 :D

I would guess as far as how the CCHA assigns points, probably like the NHL, where each team gets a point at the end of OT, and they play for the extra one. NCAA recognizes CCHA shootout results as ties because they are the only conference who uses it, i would hope all of D1 goes to SO, but we'll see.

Actually, the CCHA awards 3 pts for a win (as of this year) in regulation or OT, 2 for an shoot-out win, and 1 pt. for a shoot-out loss (http://www.uscho.com/news/college-hockey/id,17163/CCHAAltersPointsStructureOffers3PointsforRegulatio norOTWin.html). Also, the CCHA is considering going the oposit direction, and dropping the shoot-out (http://ndgoon.blogspot.com/2010/01/ccha-killing-shoot-out.html)...

That sure is an odd way to go with it. I like the NHL's shootout rules, each team gets a point for going to OT, and plays for the 2nd point in OT/SO. I know the Women's WCHA has a SO, do they award points the same way as the CCHA?

No, the WWCHA is like the NHL (http://www.wcha.com/sports/w-hockey/spec-rel/082808aaa.html). This issue was/is that some games are worth more than 2 pts (i.e. that the winner gets 2 pts and the SO loser gets 1, while in a game without a SO, that game is worth only 2 pts.) The CCHA's way, every game is worth the same (3 pts. to a winner, or 2 pts to a SO winner and 1 to a SO loser) no matter what...

Congrats to BSU on their takedown of Duluth! :)

We went to both BSU/UMD games this weekend. Good showing of Beaver Backers in Duluth, despite the weather. There was a pre-game Beaver Pride social at the Sports Garden, and you could definitely hear the Green during the game.

It was a blast to be at both games - the OT win in Duluth's barn was very sweet - and I'm glad I blew my BSU picks last weekend! Not too bad of a drive there and pretty easy drive home to Bemidji.

Hopefully, there won't be a let-down game vs Bob this weekend.

Would have loved to gone to either game this weekend. Can't imagine what the Glas was like with what, 2,400 i saw posted? For the haters of the BREC project and thinking that the place won't get full, are totally wrong. Fans realize what the good games vs good teams are and they will show up. Not to knock Niagara/RM/ALA-Huntsville, but the U, UMD, UND etc look a lot more attractive! When do tickets become available for next year again?

WCHA teams travel very well, and if the amount of Beaver fans at the DECC was considered "nice", you can pretty much double/triple that when other teams come to Bemidji the first few times...and the worse we are playing, the more they will come.

I was at Gophers/Huskies Friday night and Beavs/UMD Saturday. Very nice weekend for me to see (until Sunday around 5:40 pm). Beavs never quit! LOVE IT!
