Who plays when on Friday?

In other words, does St. Cloud play in afternoon or evening on March 19th?

Evening, I'm pretty sure. The top seed team gets the evening game.

The top seed would be Denver.

I really don't see anybody beating them this year.

I really don't see anybody beating them this year.

Wisconsin took 3 of 4 points in Madison in the only two games the two teams faced each other. Not sure it's that clear cut that Denver will walk over this tournament.

Me either, but I didn't see Duluth winning it last year either.

UND-UMD should be a great game Thursday night.

When does everyone starting singing Hey, Hey, Goodbye Don Lucia? It is about time the Gophers get someone new in the program.

I didn't buy Final Five tickets this year because I was counting on the Gophers not to make it. Anybody want to sell me a couple of tickets in the cheap seats at face value? 8th row on the ends would be awesome.

I know you disagree but I just don't see anybody beating DU. They are by far the best team in the conference. If they continue to get great goaltending look out for another National Championship.

Empty seats? ND, UMD, Duluth, and Wisconsin should all fill seats.

UMD/UND Thursday evening fills well.

So, having St Cloud and Wisconsin helps with the Friday afternoon, which only fills when MN plays someone interesting.

Evening of UMD/UND vs Denver should fill with package holders and various fans.

St Cloud and UMD/UND should do alright Saturday afternoon.

Outside of Minnesota not being there and Denver not having many fans in the area, it could have been a lot worse with Mich Tech, CC, and Alaska.

All except Denver bring mucho fans. There will be empty seats, but I'm guessing it'll be more full than not. I will be at all games except the 3rd place game.

Yeah, it won't be record-breaking, but it won't be empty either - I bet a lot of Minnesota fans were planning to show up no matter what. Still though, face value or less is the order of the day.

Empty seats? You must be talking about the upcoming Ferris State/Miami CCHA final. :D

All the teams in have loads of talent but I give the nod to Wisconsin. Just my opinion though.

I agree. My group usually goes no matter if MN is playing or not.

This year we are not going because a buddy of ours decided to get married on sat. :(
