The more threads the merrier.

I also have a feeling we might see some new NMU posters coming out of the woodwork as the week goes on.

I'm just hoping I get time off so I can see this game in-person.

Can't say that I know much about St. Cloud but I'm smart enough not to chalk this one up for NMU quite yet. Making plans to attend and hope NMU represents much the same they did in Detroit this past weekend. :D

By taking second? There is no "good job" for second this weekend.

Mildly optimistic the huskies can just pound away while scoring on the flaming cooters.

Note to the SCSU training staff: keep the antibiotics on hand for this game.

I bought my ticket package to all 3 games back in December, and lucked out that my team gets placed in this regional :) Pricing kinda sucks though for the more casual fan, I bought the 3-game package for $90 (plus tax/INconvenience fees), but a single game ticket is $50+?! Brutal to have the cost of 2 single game tickets be more than the 3-game package. the Midwest regional has single game prices of 35-45 and a 3-game of 85.

I haven't checked up on NMU very much, so i guess that'll be a task for the next few days. Hopefully SCSU can get the NCAA monkey off their backs and advance, if they do, i'd get to watch them in the regional final on my birthday :) That'd be an amazing birthday present

Meh, that just means i'd have to drink more on my bday, which is usually how it's spent. But at least I won't be buying!

Hopefully Roe recovers quickly and fully from his injury vs. Wisconsin, we'll need him back to make a strong push. Sounds like he's pretty much OK from what I heard, but the coaches kept him out of the WCHA title game to be on the safe side. We'll need him and his 47pts!

Not exactly what Motzko said to Allenspach....

"Motzko said Roe, who suffered a neck injury during Friday's 2-0 semifinal win over Wisconsin, could not have played -- even though the team said a decision on his status wasn't going to be made until shortly before gametime."

Hmmmm wasn't privy to that info. But here's hoping he makes a good recovery this week and can play on Friday. Would be a shame to see him sidelined after such a good season.

This is probably one of the best matchup's of the entire tournament. Both teams are perennial disappointments!

I'm beyond thrilled that NMU is back in the limelight after an 11 year hiatus. I'm not expecting much from then, but beating SCSU sure would be sweet!

NMU has a strong alumni base in the Twin Cities, so there should be a few thousand fans decked out in the green and gold.

Both teams have some serious playmakers and decent goaltending. Should be a great game!

Also, ESPN 360 sucks. I wish it was on the U.

Is it accurate to say NMU has good size? I counted 13 guys on their team roster over 6' and six guys 6'3"+. St. Cloud is on the small side, we really only have two big guys in Marvin and Lauridsen.

Yes, NMU is a big team. Wait til you see Olver (not really big, but very fast/quick and crafty), he's the best player in the CCHA (non-goalie).

Almost 20 years ago NMU won their only National Championship in St. Paul. Hopefully we can get some of the magic back!
