NCAA Hockey Tournament: North Dakota vs. Western Michigan Line Combinations

Hello from the Xcel Energy Center where the University of North Dakota Fighting Sioux and the Western Michigan Broncos are about to face off in the first of two West Regional games today. The game starts at 12:30 p.m. CT and will be broadcast on Fox Sports North in the Twin Cities and ESPN3.com elsewhere.

North Dakota features the same lineup which won them the Broadmoor Trophy while the Broncos enter the game on the heels of winning the CCHA conference championship.

Aaron Dell is in net for the nickname-less UND team and Frank Slubowski will be starting for Western Michigan.
