The weekend wasn’t a total waste for #4 Minot State, as they scored a pair of 2-1 victories over #5 Oakland, with Friday’s outcome decided in a shootout.

    Re: ACHA Men's Division I Ranking #5

    Adrian will drop a little, I would think, after losing to Davenport 4-3 in OT last night. A game they should not have lost (personal commentary there, from the penalty box). They turned around and ripped Davenport 6-2 tonight.

    As for Minot State, they had a serious case of bus legs by the time the Sunday game against Adrian came around. They were just out of gas, justifiably so.

    God, that was fun...
