BSU has only played two games this year and lost both to UND. I assume that BSU has not played more games because of an oddly timed bye and the new arena. BSU is looking for their first win of the year and first WCHA win. BSU has always played UMD tough. Not exactly sure on what their record against UMD is but it is not what I would want it.
That being said, UMD had struggled against UAA in the last few years but took care of business last weekend. UMD can score a ton of goals and has three players in the top ten in D1 scoring. What has helped UMD score even more is the development of our second line in Oleksuk, freshman JT Brown and Kyle Schmidt. UMD goaltending wise will split time with Kenny Reiter and Aaron Crandall. Crandall is riding a 119 minute scoreless streak.
I hope tUMD can continue the nations longest unbeaten streak this weekend. Need a split but hope for 3 points.
