Game 29: UMD at Michigan Tech

HOUGHTON, Mich. -- The Bulldogs enter Houghton on a bizarre winning streak of sorts. UMD has won four straight WCHA road games dating back to a Nov. 21 win over Minnesota at Mariucci Arena.

This is bizarre to me for a couple reasons:

1. UMD has experienced plenty of struggles to win in both venues in recent years (Minnesota, Minnesota State).

2. UMD has only played four WCHA road games in a span of more than two months.

Six of the last eight are on the road, so if UMD is to earn home-ice advantage in the first round of the WCHA playoffs, they'll have to do it by getting points on the road.
