Game 34: Omaha at UMD

Final regular-season home game for the Bulldogs, and it comes with an early start for FSN television.

The Bulldogs weren't at their sharpest Friday in a 1-1 tie that ended with an Omaha shootout win. UNO won a lot of races and a lot of battles, and UMD will have to be better in all zones to get out of here with four points on the weekend.

It will also have to break what's been a bit of a hex on Saturdays. Since Christmas break, UMD has had four chances to win an NCHC series on Saturday (North Dakota, Western Michigan, St. Cloud State, Miami) and is 0-4 in those games, outscored 17-8.

Before the game, UMD will honor seniors Adam Krause, Justin Crandall, Derik Johnson, and Alex Fons. Krause, Crandall, and Johnson have combined to play 366 games in these colors, with 55 goals and 128 points. Obviously, they're hoping to play more in this building, but they get their salute Saturday just in case.
