Both semi finals games and the championship are on CBS Sports. The consolation game on Saturday is not televised.
I think one win will be enough to keep them in the overall #1 seed. I ran some numbers in the pairwise predictor and it appears that North Dakota, even win just win, will remain at #14 in the pairwise. Since 15 (WCHA) and 16 (Atlantic) are already taking those bottom 2 slots, any other upsets would bump the Green Plague out.

That's just not how they play. A heavy, physical game is not suited for this team. This team relies on speed, creativity, and depth, especially at home on the big ice. I think that's partially why they have trouble against WMU. The Broncos are generally a bigger team that plays a more physical brand of hockey. If they run into a team like that in the NCAAs on a smaller rink it could be trouble (I don't know who that team is).
I like this team to beat North Dakota later today and advance to the final on Saturday. Gonna be tough opponents both games regardless of who it is.

Hardware would gave been lovely but we have won that one before. Hard enough to rattle off four in a row, seven would have been super tough. Hope we had our slip up yesterday and roll on from here. Getting back to the X is way more important than sweeping at the X this weekend. One game st a time... #JWF
Kind of a BS regional we got stuck with but the boys were gonna have to beat some very good teams to win a title anyway.
Its pretty obvious they moved Duluth and Mankato there for attendance purposes and traded them with some eastern teams. I'm ok with that and I like the 3 local teams playing there. It would be a great regional to attend too. Denver played such a good, structured, defensive game last night. They deserved to win. St Cloud is a deep, talented, offensive team and they really couldn't generate much because of how well Denver played their scheme. Focus and prepare for Air Force now. We do not want a repeat of what happened against Ferris State two years ago.
They've never cared about the butts in the seats before...just the money and those seats are already sold. They say it's travel cost but they royally screwed bracket integrity for this.
Either way, it's like they've resurrected the old North Star Cup, minus Minnesota, and with the more colorful of the Serratores. Win-win!
So we got #6 (Mankato) and #12 (UMD) instead of what we should have got in #8 (Michigan) and #9 (Northeastern). First glance, didn't care that much. Closer look, yes, Mankato's RPI is considerably higher than the two #2 band teams behind them. I just can't see this happening to Minnesota, North Dakota, BU or BC if they were #1 overall seeds. Think you could have swapped UMD and Northeastern but Mankato should have went out east to Cornell's bracket.
Maybe the only positives are: we are familiar with both teams if/when we get by Air Force and both of those teams are coming off two losses. They better not look past Air Force.
BTW, was at the tournament this past weekend. Thought the Huskies moved the puck pretty well both nights, especially early on against Denver. Denver took advantage of their opportunities, the Huskies couldn't put them in the back of the net. Wasn't a momentum draining loss at all. Don't take the bad penalties (looked like frustration penalties) and they should be just fine this weekend.
