Around the WCHA Dec 19 & 20

Last weekend was the last relatively full week in the WCHA until 2009. There are few non-conference games this weekend, and a bunch of holiday tourneys next weekend. Here are last week's results:

Denver swept Mankato
CC split w/ minnesota
North Dakota swept St. CLoud
Duluth took 3 pts from Michigan Tech

Wisconsin went into last weekend in 1st, but as expected they were surpassed by both Denver and minnesota. The Badgers sit in 3rd w/ CC, which isn't a bad spot considering the start. The only teams that beat up on Wisconsin in conference are ahead of them. The standings (lazy edition):

1 - Denver, 19 pts
2 - minnesota, 17 pts
3 - Wisconsin, 16 pts
3 - CC, 16 pts
5 - Duluth, 15 pts
6 - North Dakota, 13 pts
7 - Mankato - 12 pts
8 - St. Cloud - 10 pts
8 - UAA - 1o pts
10 - Michigan Tech - 4 pts

This weekend is pretty quiet.

CC hosts Sacred Heart - CC Sweep
Michigan Tech home & home w/ N. Michigan - Split
North Dakota hosts the US NTDP U18 Team in exhibition

Should mention that Badger recruit John Ramage and the U18's beat Michigan State the other night.
