    Indeed. I am excited for the press conference. Good news for sure

        Another piece of bad news, Derek Rodwell is out for the rest of the year with a shoulder injury.

        That means that the Sioux are without Rodwell, Grimaldi, Knight, Lamoureux, and Forbort this weekend, which means we could likely see the Sioux playing 16 skaters (instead of the usual 18) against Clarkson. Fortunately, it is just a one game series, and hopefully Lamoureux and Knight will be back against the Gophers (would be cool if Grimaldi and Forbort made it back as well for that series).

          Before we become foes on the ice this weekend, I'd like to say hats off to the North Dakota program for its consistent history of scheduling the little guys on their schedule. Surely, more money could be made putting in a non-conference game against another big school but we appreciate that UND not only schedules smaller schools but travels too.

          It's unfortunate to see that you guys have so many players out this weekend. We're just getting back from a stretch where 2 of our 3 most talented forwards were out and last weekend was a complete disaster when our goaltender got sick and couldn't make the trip to Florida. Hopefully he's well hydrated for Winnipeg and it will be a good game up there.

                  Great post, FireKnight, and I couldn't agree more. I love that about the FIGHTING SIOUX as well. Especially when looking at certain schools (namely of the Big 10 variety) who seem to rarely travel for non conference games. North Dakota will travel anywhere, anytime, and that is to be commended. It is great for our sport. I think the new conference is going to make this even better, as it opens up a few more non conference games.

                  As for Clarkson, when CC played there a few years ago, I was at both games and had a great time. I enjoyed the fans, especially the students. And I love the bell! I will always have a soft spot for Clarkson due to my great experience in Potsdam.

                    So pretty nice win tonite. We're 8-1-1 in the last 10 games. Hmmm. Does it feel like the second half surge is underway? Next weekend will give us a good idea.

                      It seemed like CCT ran out of gas tonight just as North Dakota started to turn it on. Clarkson controlled the play in the first, had a dreadful second and the third sounded a little more up and down with both teams unable to bury some big opportunities. It sounds like you guys have a great hockey community up there and online.

                      As our coach said in the post-game, this Clarkson squad is not out for moral victories despite being pegged as dead last in the ECAC preseason picks, but it is kind of nice to be able to hang with one of the great squads out there. Good luck the rest of the way and we'll definitely work toward getting a couple victories over Colgate and Cornell for you when they come to Potsdam.

                        So what's the word on the injured players? Rodwell we know for sure is out, and I assume we still won't see Rocco. How about Forbort? It's been kind of quiet since the WJ's. Any chance he plays? Also, Knight is a huge key. Without his face off wins we sure spend a lot of time chasing the puck.
                        That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                            Crap. The annual get-together to watch the Sioux/Gopher game is tonite and it is snowing! The weather guessers are saying an inch or two so it will either stop or we'll get a foot. Worse case I'll stay home and watch but its always a good time. Great game last night - I don't think I've ever heard the Ralph as loud as it was the last 3 and a half minutes.

                              This got me thinking. When was the last time North Dakota won a tight, down to the wire, one goal game against Minnesota at home? It had never happened at the new Ralph until last night, with the last win of this type coming January 21st, 2000, when North Dakota beat Minnesota 1-0.

                              Between then and last night, here were the results of North Dakota wins at home against Minnesota...
                              1/15/11: 4-1 (lost 3-2 the night before)
                              3/14/10: 4-1 (lost 4-2 the night before)
                              3/12/10: 6-0
                              10/16/09: 4-0 (tied 3-3 the night after)
                              1/10/09: 6-1
                              1/09/09: 6-3
                              12/07/07: 4-2 (lost 4-3 the night after) It should be noted that the game winner came with less than 4 minutes to play in this game
                              10/22/04: 4-2 w/game winner coming about 5 minutes into the third
                              11/8/03: 7-3
                              11/7/03: 5-3
                              11/10/00: 7-5 (tied 5-5 the night after)

                              We also lost two 4-3 games in December of '05, and one in '02.

                              It is odd to think, but we were 0-5-1 in one goal games at the new Ralph against Minnesota until last night.

                                Well, that was a disappointing outcome tonight. Overall, UND is 7th in the WCHA standings and faces a crucial series with SCSU this upcoming weekend. I don't think a sweep is a likely result, but a split is a must. At the end of the day, UND has 12 WCHA regular season games left. 8 wins probably gets home ice, so where do those 8 wins come from?

                                @ St. Cloud State - as stated, 2 points is a must...anything more would be gravy
                                vs Wisconsin - this is looking more and more like a necessary sweep.
                                @ Duluth - the bulldogs are playing great right now (despite the loss tonight) and probably want to enact some revenge on UND from last season. it is hard to imagine anything more than 2 here, and getting swept is possible.
                                vs Tech - this series is almost a must need sweep. if UND sweeps Wisconsin and takes a game from Duluth (or sweep SCSU) then they may have a bit of wiggle room.
                                @ Denver - another very difficult place to get points. again, anything more than 2 is difficult to foresee, but a split is doable if UND plays well.
                                vs Mankato - must sweep. anything less would be extremely disappointing.

                                Where do the 8 wins come from? I think sweeps of Mankato and either Wisconsin or Tech (with the other series being a split) gets UND to 5. A split with Denver and SCSU gets UND to 7. That leaves the Duluth series to get a split. If they fail in Duluth, then UND needs to either sweep out at home, or sweep either Denver or SCSU.

                                Ultimately, I think North Dakota gets the 8 wins, putting them at 16-12-0 in WCHA play (32 points) and likely hosting a first round series (32 points would have been good for 5th last season). It would also put them at 20-13-4, and likely on the bubble for the NCAA Tournament. As a result, North Dakota would likely have to at least win the first round series (against a team like SCSU, Tech, Bemidji or Wisconsin) of the WCHA Tournament, and perhaps make a run to the title game.

                                It all starts this upcoming weekend at St. Cloud. UND generally outplayed the Huskies earlier in the year, but they need to get healthy. 4 points is doable, but unlikely. 2 points is almost a necessity. Hopefully the team is able to regroup and refocus after tonight, and give St. Cloud everything they have.
