    2012 West Regional: North Dakota vs Western Michigan; Minnesota vs Boston University

    Sioux-Broncos in the early game on Saturday.
    Gophers-Terriers in the late game Saturday.

    This should be a very good regional, and the crowd should be fantastic.

    Pssh, there's a couple 1st round games that are always "Where the f did that come from?"

    Hope the dice come up snake eyes.

    West Regional = Bracket of Death? East Regional = UMD's regional last year?

    At least you guys won't have to play on Friday, that has to be a major relief.

    And a potential BC-UND F4 matchup is possible.

    If MN doesn't go.......I want to see BC feed on UND's trail of tears yet again.

    There is always a potential BC-UND Frozen Four matchup it seems. That being said, this North Dakota team should not be seen as the favorite. They are playing 17 guys, and have zero depth. The only way we get to Tampa is if Dell stands on his head.

    Yeah this looks like the thread that will win out.

    I'm really glad the Gophers don't have to play on a Friday, although the 1st and 2nd period Gophers weren't too shabby the other night.

    That's what I was thinking. I fully have no expectations, even as a one seed, of anything. I'm just gonna watch, and pray to God I like the outcome.

    I've never seen a game like that. Minnesota absolutely killed North Dakota for 35 minutes, and then Hakstol took a timeout. The difference in the game was that Dell kept UND in the game when Minnesota was dominating, and Patterson was the biggest sieve in the world when North Dakota started to control play. IF (big if) these two sides meet up in the Regional Final, I think we'll see a significantly closer game...something along the lines of the Saturday game at Mariucci or the Friday game at the Ralph.

    That being said, I just hope UND can keep their focus on Western, play their game, and make it to the Regional Final.

    Yeah I was at the game and after UND took the timeout it was like a light switch turned on for them and turned off for us, when it was 3-0 Gophers I really didn't think Patterson would give up 4 goals. Ugh

    BU will give us all we can handle I'm sure, if Patterson and the D can play like they have been for most of the year the Gophers have a great shot at playing Sunday.

    Western Michigan is a **** good team. Got to watch their CCHA tournament games on TV. They are on a roll and I hope that UND will be ready for them. Go Sioux!

    I would think Fox Sports North would pick up these games.
