Thread: 2012 WCHA Final Five

  1. #1

    2012 WCHA Final Five

    Minnesota, North Dakota, and St. Cloud State have all punched their tickets to St. Paul. The Gophers will play Friday night. The Sioux can play either Friday Afternoon, Thursday Afternoon, or Thursday Night, and the Huskies will play on Thursday, but could be either in the afternoon or evening.

    Duluth, Tech, and Wisconsin have chances to secure a spot in the Final Five tonight, but Duluth is in 2OT w/Mankato, and Tech and Wisconsin are each down a goal in the third out in Colorado.

    Agreed. Now if Wisconsin and Tech could make it, that would be just about the perfect mix of teams for a Final Five.

    Tech is currently in Overtime with CC, while Denver and Wisconsin will play in a decisive Game 3 tomorrow night.

    Good call, Im hoping the Badgers can pull out the W tomorrow, that would make the perfect crowd at the X

    I couldn't call the winner if I tried. All are playing very well

    Michigan Tech wins in overtime, and will advance to St. Paul.

    What does that mean?

    If Denver wins:
    Thursday Afternoon - Tech vs. Denver (winner plays Duluth Friday Afternoon)
    Thursday Evening - SCSU vs. UND (winner plays Minnesota Friday Evening)

    If Wisconsin wins:
    Thursday Afternoon - Wisconsin vs. UND (winner plays Duluth Friday Afternoon)
    Thursday Evening - Tech vs. SCSU (winner plays Minnesota Friday Evening)

    Congratulations to Michigan Tech for punching their ticket to St. Paul.

    Agreed. If Wisconsin can win, the Final Five could set attendance records. It reminds me of the 2007 tournament with Wisconsin, Tech, Minnesota, SCSU, and UND...throw in Duluth and it will be even better (hopefully a slightly better outcome as well ) Of course, it also reminds me that this will be the second to last year of the Final Five...sigh...

    Agreed across the board. Even if Denver wins, it will be nuts, if Wisco makes it, look out.

    And definitely a bummer that we've only got two of these left. I started back in 97 for the last time at the civic center, missed 98 in Milwaukee, but have been at every game since. I'm going to miss this Last year before the championship game, I was talking with some Sioux fans who asked me what I though was going to happen with the B10, and I said I thought it was unforunately inevitable. I just wish I'd beeen wrong.

    Great point and it's a shame really, this is the premier tourney in the country IMO and to see it go away is pretty sad.
