Game 18: UMD at Alaska Anchorage

ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- For UMD, it's the final game of the season's first half. It's a first half that included a few low points, but the last ten games have generally been pretty good for the Bulldogs, starting with a series at North Dakota in mid-November.

It isn't enough to completely shake a poor start to the WCHA season, but UMD can still get to 13 points with a Saturday win in Anchorage. It isn't exactly halfway to the magical number of 28 that often leads to a team attaining home ice, but it's a positive step.

To do so, the Bulldogs have to win a series finale for the first time this season (0-6-2). It won't be easy. Expect a lot of jump from UAA in this one, as the Seawolves were pretty thoroughly beaten on Friday. If UMD wins this one, it will have earned it.
