HOUGHTON, Mich. -- It's not exactly a snowglobe this time around.
I don't think Houghton has much more snow -- if more at all -- than Duluth does. A nice, uneventful drive here.
The game shouldn't be that way. Both teams have reason to be desperate for their own reasons. UMD needs points, while Michigan Tech is 1-3 in WCHA play at home so far. The Huskies are also entering a stretch of five games in nine days that includes a trip to Marquette Tuesday (Northern Michigan) and Madison for a Friday-Saturday series against Wisconsin next week.
Nice job, schedule maker.
