    Post WMU @ tUMD: It's Playoff and Barbaro time!

    Should be a great series. There's no way UMD sweeps this series. WMU has lost 3 in a row to UMD and I doubt they'll make it four. UMD better be on their game or this could be a short series... that being said I believe it will be a 3 game series with either team winning.

    I think if the Broncos can make it out of this series and book a ticket to the NCHC tournament finals they have a strong chance of winning it all. They have proven they can beat every team in the conference and are having a great tournament year. This team has been peaks and valleys all season and after beating UND this weekend I think we're starting to peak again at the right time.

    tUMD is the only team I worry about honestly. Even though we split earlier in the season I can't help but think you're the team the Broncos need puck luck against. We can't beat you on talent and hard work alone, we need the hockey gods on this one. It's going to be a spectacular series...

    Meanwhile, all of the other teams are downright terrified of Western Michigan.

    I sense some sarcasm.....

    What I meant is that I believe Western can win against any team in the conference so long as they play a full 60 min. Our chances against UND , SCSU, UNO etc i would say are 50/50 in any game.... tUMD is the only team I would say 25/75... There's just something about tUMD that Broncos struggle with and I believe the odds are against us in this series... But if we beat the odds I like us for winning the whole thing! Just have to knock off
    the Pesky bulldogs!

    If you werent being sarcastic.... Does your fear of WMU have anything to do with our coach Angry Murray? As long as youre not wearin stripes hes harmless!

    Your sarcasm detector seems to be working properly.

    It is good to be optimistic, but I worry at least a little bit about any team above mine in the standings. A lot of times I worry about the teams below as well, especially at this time of the season.

    WMU needs the autobid, so even if they beat UMD, any loss after that ends their season. That would worry me no matter who the opponent is.

    Fair. I guess no matter how I try to put it into words it will always come out wrong. By all means the Broncos can be beat by any team in this conference as easily as they can win.... My assessment of the situation never should have left my brain.

    Go Broncos! Do something!

    Particularly since I think just about anybody could conceivably win this tourney save, perhaps, CC. If you were to ask me to x out any one team, it would be them (sorry, CC).

    In the NCHC,any given game any team can win,I wouldn't count any team out in a tournament setting.

    Yeah, CC is pretty terrible.

    Anyone else want to come in here and crap on CC?

    I think it's a little late for them to get in a bid to hold the playoffs there. So it's a safe assumption to make.

    EDIT: I'm in Tipsy. CC is bad!

    They'll probably make us all look like a bunch of nimrods, now, and win the darn thing.

    I don't see North Dakota or St Cumulus letting that happen.

    And last year DU, MN and UND probably weren't that concerned about them either

    ALRIGHT BRONCOS!! Happy for the win... but the last couple minutes of the game really ruined it..... I don't want us being the next Miami, finish the game!

    tUMD played a good game. Even after an empty net goal they didn't let the wind get taken out of their sails. I expect the Broncos will have to battle twice as hard tomorrow for a repeat victory.

    Go Broncos! Sweeeeep Sweeep SWEEEEP!!!
