WCHA Final Five Play-In Game: UMD vs. North Dakota

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- There has always been something a little weird about this single play-in game to me. It's not like it isn't part of the Final Five or anything, but I've always felt like the loser of this game didn't really take part in the tournament.

Not complaining or anything, just observing. It's almost as if the real event starts Friday, and this game is for a chance to play in the "real event."

Either way, it's really important, especially for UMD, who needs a win to avoid sitting at home and rooting for the likes of Sacred Heart and Boston College this weekend.
