Game 19: UMD at Miami

OXFORD, Ohio -- It was only one goal, but hopefully Tony Cameranesi's twisted wrister late in the third period Friday will help guys breathe a little bit. I don't know how anyone could be playing with a lot of confidence when the Bulldogs were shut out in back-to-back home games before the break and shut out for 54 minutes or so on Friday (177:06 the actual number from the last goal against Western Michigan Dec. 5 to Cameranesi's).

Now, it's time to get some NCHC points. Three would be really nice. As head coach Scott Sandelin said before Friday's game, it's not time to worry about the teams in front of UMD. He's right. It's time to worry about UMD. Just get points and continue to improve the overall level of play. If those things happen, I'll take my chances with things like puck luck, the league standings, and the PairWise.

Quick programming note: With most of the league at nine or 11 conference games played, I put off my NCHC midseason awards a few days. I'll file that during the week, probably Wednesday.
