Friday, 7:35 MT
Minnesota State at Colorado College
Minnesota (21-6-5) is 1-1-1 in its last three games, coming off a recent overtime tie with Minnesota-Duluth on the road. And even though they've been stammering over the past few match-ups, the team is in great shape going forward. The Golden Gophers consistently put a good team on the ice, and the team is in good hands with Don Lucia.
The Gophers will look to pickup some steam against Denver this evening.
Minnesota-Duluth (10-17-5) has faltered as of recent, going 0-1-2 in its past three games. Duluth is well below .500 at this point, struggling to win on the road and at home. Fortunately for them, Alabama-Huntsville (3-19-1) is considerably worse than they are.
The Bulldogs have a good chance to topple the Chargers and collect some wins in back-to-back games on Friday and Saturday.
Minnesota State (20-9-3) has been just has dangerous as Minnesota this year, and are the hotter team at the moment. Minnesota State is 3-0 in the team's last three games, with a below .500 Tigers team on the horizon. If they carry this momentum forward, the Mavericks could be competing for a National Championship this year.
