Around the WCHA Dec 12-14

Despite the fact that Wisconsin is not playing this weekend, everyone else besides UAA is. I didn't do very well last week w/ predictions, here are last week's results:

Wisconsin swept UAA
St. Cloud swept Mankato in a home & home
Duluth took 3 pts from CC
DU swept Michigan Tech
North Dakota swept Havard

Though Wisconsin has at least two games in hand, its pretty cool to see them atop the WCHA standings at this point. In points/game, Wisconsin is 4th in the WCHA. Still a great turn around after only netting 1 point in their first five WCHA games. While winning the MacNaughton would be great, right now I just want to see some home ice for the 1st round of the WCHA playoffs.

Here are this week's games:

Michigan Tech @ Duluth - Duluth takes 3 pts
St. Cloud @ North Dakota - both coming off sweeps so the split
DU @ Mankato - Split
CC @ minnesota - 3 pts for the goofers

If you have Charter and get the sports teir, both minnesota games are on one of the Fox Sports channels this weekend. If the Badgers aren't on to cheer for, the next best thing is cheering against the rodents.
