Decided to start a new thread on this instead of just letting the specific Gophers one go sideways. There is a number of “local” teams playing this weekend.
NCHC Semifinals in St Paul
CC vs Denver, 4pm
North Dakota vs St Cloud, 7:30pm
CCHA Championship in Mankato
Northern Michigan vs Mankato, 5pm
Big Ten Championship in Mpls
Michigan vs Minnesota, 7pm
NCHC Championship in St Paul
TBD vs TBD after Friday’s semifinals, 7:30pm
Bemidji State, St Thomas, Wisconsin, and Duluth have seen their season’s end already. Its the first time in 7 years that Duluth will not qualify for the NCAA tournament, which was the current longest streak in the country. Colorado College, North Dakota, and Northern Michigan will need to win their conference tournament to qualify for the NCAAs. Minnesota, Denver, Michigan, St Cloud, and Mankato are all currently on the positive side of the qualification bubble.
