The No. 3 Minnesota menís hockey team returns to action this weekend, hosting the Border Battle with Western Collegiate Hockey Association rival Wisconsin at Mariucci Arena. Fridayís series opener is set for 7 p.m. while Saturdayís follow-up will begin at 8 p.m. The Gophers are 155-86-20 all-time against the Badgers including a 90-27-7 record at home. The first of four meetings between two future Big Ten Conference teams this season, Minnesota and Wisconsin will also play twice in the second half -- once in Madison and in the first outdoor game in the modern era for the Gophers at the OfficeMax Hockey City Classic at Soldier Field in Chicago.

Wisconsin (1-4-1, 1-2-1 WCHA) is coming off a bye week -- the second-straight series in which Minnesotaís opponent has had a break before the series. The Badgers were swept by newly ranked Colorado College two weeks ago, losing 5-4 in overtime and 3-0. Wisconsin opened WCHA play against Minnesota-Duluth, winning 2-0 and tying 2-2. Michael Mersch is Wisconsinís top active scorer with four goals this season (Mark Zengerle has 2-4--6, but is currently out of the lineup with an injury). Joel Rumpel (1-3-1) is the Badgers top goaltender this season with a 2.37 GAA and a .919 save percentage in 304:24 this year.

Someone wake the Badger up. The vermin are getting too far from their holes.

Someone wake the Badger up. The vermin are getting too far from their holes.We're busy experimenting with pre-game misery. It's like pre-game drinking, except we're using our time leading up to the game to get completely depressed and miserable. Sort of lets us pace it a little better throughout the weekend.

The Gophers may struggle against the U18 team...but we'll absolutely sweep the badgers. :)

I thought living in Wisconsin did that automatically.

Ok, I'll bite and call my shot. Badgers silence the crowd at "The Mecca" winning Friday night 4-2 with 2 goals each from Barnes and LaBate and then come back Saturday and earn a 1-1 tie with Faust scoring the lone Badger goal and Rumpel recording 50 saves. Gopher fans everywhere lament how a clearly inferior program could come in and get 3 points.

I could easily see UW surprising one night with a bunch of goals out of nowhere, then hanging in a tight game in the other. These guys have played at the Mooch before, they're not afraid of no stinking rodents.

It all really depends on a few things....1) how Briggseque their new sieve is. 2) Motivation....From listening to Schuey on the Wisconsin Hockey Hour, the lads really feel like their backs are against the wall and the world is against them. And they are playing the hated rodents. You can't get much more motivated for a regular season game than this. 3) How well UW executes the new forecheck. It has to start getting more comfortable with all the practice the last 2 weeks and when they execute it, it works. The issue is they haven't executed properly for an entire game yet.

Not so much that. When the deer run out, there are always plenty of underserved Minnesota women coming across the border with the increased size of the goat herd and all. Minnesota women being what they are, though, that's small consolation.

Sounds like some posters must experience the finer things in life.

MN has more scandinavians...read: blondes. Also, our women are in better shape than WI and frankly anywhere else in the midwest. Sorry Bucky!

How dare you try to use facts to get away from stupid generalizations on the Internet.

I demand you atone for this nonsense by saying some stupid ****ing bull**** about paint thinner and ****ing dead deer.

I guess you "win." Of course the difference could be men, not women. Plus, a lot of the those non-obese women come down to Madison for school, so thank you.

We apologize for St, Clooud.

And to hockey: if you trap, we will sweep.
If you try and attack, we still probably will sweep, but you have a chance at a point. Maybe two if you're lucky.
