Didn't see a thread so here we go heading into what should be a very fast paced and exciting series to watch. This is obviously a critical and defining series for both teams with three weeks to go looking forward to the BIG season championship and the NCAA playoff picture.
Michigan will invade Mariucci with the #1 offense in the NCAA courtesy of the CCM line of Kyle Connor, JT Compher and Tyler Motte, the highest scoring line in the NCAA (63-77-140 in 28 games or 5 points/game).
The Gophers rank #9 in offense and will look to players like Captain Kloos with 10 goals in 11 games with a 9 game point streak, Hudson Fasching with 9 goals in 11 games and leading the team with 18 goals on the season and lightening quick forward Leon Bristedt, who has tripled his goal scoring output from last season with 15 goals and 15 assists.
Both teams have weaknesses at defense with the Gophers ranked #31 and Wolverines #36. In net, Schierhorn (2.57 GAA, .912 SV%) and Racine (2.80 GAA, .915 SV%) have nearly identical stats.
