Game 16: North Dakota at UMD

The showdown is on. Hopefully you can all beat the traffic.

We'll see if UMD can slay another dragon, so to speak. The Bulldogs were 1-4-1 all-time at Amsoil Arena against Western Michigan before outscoring the Broncos 13-2 in last weekend's two-game sweep here.

North Dakota is 4-1 all-time in this building, including a 5-0 win in the Amsoil Arena opener in 2010, and a 6-2 win in the last game between the teams here, played in 2014. Overall, North Dakota has outscored UMD in this building 21-8.

I don't have to tell you how significant this is in terms of the league standings. The Bulldogs simply can't afford to fall much farther behind UND and St. Cloud State, the top two teams in the conference at this juncture.
