The Hockey Guys:
By Andrew Weiss (@WeissFC)
In terms of toughness, the Midwest Regional is hand in hand as tough as the deep Northeast Regional to get out of. It is uncommon to see a team that won a share of the strongest league’s title receive a four seed, but that is the case with St. Cloud who plays Notre Dame Saturday afternoon.
Saturday’s matchups also add intrigue in that the regional pairs a top offensive team (St. Cloud State and Minnesota State) against a top defensive team (Notre Dame and Miami). While Notre Dame is the first seed and will travel two and a half hours to Toledo, the home state Miami RedHawks also see an in state advantage being a mere 130 miles always from the Huntington Center.
Below is part three of four of The Hockey Guys’ preview to the 2013 NCAA Division I Men’s Tournament highlighting the Midwest Regional. Each preview will feature the four team capsules, players to watch, and predictions of how the three games will play out.

St Cloud tied with Minnesota for the WCHA regular season title, lost in the WCHA semifinals to Wisconsin and, with a very lack luster non-conference record, had to keep their fingers crossed just to even make the tournament.
