Game 32: UMD at Miami

OXFORD, Ohio -- One more time from Oxford, where the Bulldogs look to continue their push for home ice advantage in the NCHC quarterfinals.

UMD won Friday's game 5-4, surviving an early 2-0 hole with a stout 18-skater effort and continuously improved play from senior goalie Aaron Crandall, who made 20 saves and stopped all nine shots in the third period after Adam Krause's short-handed goal gave the Bulldogs the lead for good.

Three games left in the regular season, and it's pretty simple for UMD. Win all three, and home ice is earned for the quarterfinal round. Lose or tie (plus shootout) any, and the Bulldogs no longer "control their own destiny" and would require help of some sort to attain home ice.
