COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Before an early wake-up call for a flight back to the comforts of home, the Bulldogs have some business to take care of on the ice.
The mission: Improve to 5-0-1 over the last six in this building, and assure this team the best ten-game start they have had since freshman Dylan Olsen was four years old (UMD started 8-2 in the 1995-96 season).
Tonight's game is the fourth in a span of six out of ten that UMD will play on Olympic ice. Once they finish up with Minnesota Nov. 21, UMD will only have four "big sheet" games left on the regular season schedule (at Minnesota State in January, and at Alaska-Anchorage in March).
Here are the lines as UMD tries to build off a dramatic 4-3 win Friday.
