Game 33: Miami at UMD

Back home for the first time since Feb. 9, UMD has an opportunity this weekend to not only secure home ice in the NCHC playoffs (first priority), but to put itself in better position to make the NCAA Tournament. The fact that this is still a conversation after UMD lost three games to mid-pack WCHA teams is amazing, but the Bulldogs "jumped ten spots" in the PWR after last weekend's sweep of St. Cloud State.

Now, the Bulldogs need to capitalize. I like what I saw the last two weekends, and it seems like it did indeed carry over in practice this week. Now it needs to carry into the games against a similarly desperate opponent that will pack it in and play a strong defensive game.
