PLAYERS: Michael Mersch
The Badgers and UND exchange pleasantries at the end of the game. I don't think these two teams were asking each other where they were going to meet after the game. Badger forward Michael Mersch needs to be suspended and I expect that he will when the WCHA reviews this film. There is no way to defend Mersch's actions, that's not acceptable in any league. There is conclusive video evidence that Mersch came off of the bench to engage Steph Pattyn. Lucky for Mersch, the refs saved him from a beat down.
