SWEEP

I'm posting from the road today so I don't have a ton of good info for you. Apparently, over the weekend Wisconsin swept Michigan Tech. Wisconsin is now all alone in second place in the conference.

If you didn't notice, Denver clinched the MacNaughton Cup last night. Wisconsin has a two point lead over St. Cloud State in the race for second with one weekend to play. The worst Wisconsin can finish is fourth, and for that to happen SCSU would have to get at least 2 points, Duluth would have to sweep, and Wisconsin would have to get swept. The best we can finish is obviously second.

The MacNaughton would have been great to win and I give Denver all the credit in the world. But our focus is on the National Championship. Our best way to get there is to finish in the top 3 in the league to avoid the Thursday game at the Final Five, and to get a number 1 seed. We've put ourselves in great position to do both so It's hard to complain right now.

It was tough to have Geoffrion out of the lineup but it was nice to see Podge and Derek Lee get a shot this weekend. I was kind of disappointed that Podge had to sit Saturday night after scoring on Friday night but I would have to assume they were told before the trip that each player was going to play in a game over the weekend.
