WCHA Games

Wisconsin @ #5 Colorado College
Last weekend the Badgers split with the Gophers in Madison and the Tigers lost one game to the Pioneers in Denver.

The Tigers are averaging just over 4 goals per game in league play, whereas the Badgers are just over 3gpg. So with those types of offensive numbers these games could turn into some shoot outs. Wisconsin in winless this year away from the Kohl center but will look to end that streak this weekend in C-Springs. The Tigers are 2-0-0 at World Arena this year. TIGER’S 3-POINTS


#1 Minnesota @ St. Cloud State
Last weekend the Gophers split with the Badgers in Madison and the Huskies split with the Mavericks in Mankato.

The Gophers are rolling right along this year with only a few little bumps on their road, they are 10-2-0 overall. The Huskies are off to a solid start going 5-5-2 overall, and are undefeated at the NHC, 2-0-2. The Huskies will be up for this series along with the “Dog Pound” I’m sure. Since these schools are located about 60 miles apart, they are neighbors, but don’t count on them being very neighborly. SPLIT


#19 Nebraska-Omaha @ #11 Denver
Last weekend the Mavericks took 3-points from the Beavers in Bemidji and the Pioneers took a win over their rival CC in Denver.

The Mavericks continue on their road trips this weekend taking a road trip across I-80 and I-76 to Denver. UNO has fared well on the road this season going 2-2-1 away from Omaha. The Pioneers are almost perfect at Magness Arena owning a 3-1-1 record at home. DU has given up a lot of goals this year, (not typical for a Gwozdecky a team) so they will need to limit the Mavericks scoring chances if they want to get some points and gain on UNO in the standings. SPLIT


North Dakota @ Bemidji State
Last weekend the Sioux enjoyed a free weekend and the Beavers got 1-point against the visiting UNO Mavericks in Bemidji.

The Sioux ruined the opening of the Beavers new stadium last year by sweeping them in Bemidji. I’m sure that will serve as motivation for this year’s squad. The Sioux have a young team this year and are still learning as they go. UND will need to find ways to score some more goals if they want to get some wins. The Sioux have only scored 12-goals in 6 league games, ugh. The Beavers will need to get the crowd into it this weekend, that means scoring first and playing with the lead. If UND can find the back of the net more than twice a game they can win this weekend. SPLIT


Minnesota State @ #8 Minnesota-Duluth
Last weekend the Mavericks split with the SCSU Huskies in Mankato and the Bulldogs swept the Seawolves in Duluth.

The Bulldogs are leading the WCHA in scoring differential, they are a +14 this year, while the Mavericks are a -7. The numbers point to a Bulldog sweep, but we all know that numbers don’t predict the future. MSUM has had a rash of early season injuries and is learning how to adapt and over come, so don’t look surprised if the Mavericks leave Duluth with a point or two this weekend. BULLDOGS 3-POINTS


#15 Michigan Tech @ Alaska-Anchorage
Last weekend the Huskies enjoyed bye and the Seawolves were swept by the Bulldogs in Duluth.

The Huskies are 6-1-1 in Houghton this year, but they are 0-2-0 away from the upper peninsula. The Seawolves offense this year has been offensive, they have scored only 4 goals in 6 league games, ouch. MTU has scored 24-goals in 8 WCHA games. It goes without saying , if you don’t score, you can’t win, period. UAA has to bury some pucks if they want to erase that goose egg in the wins column. SPLIT
