Watched the final period of both Sue games while up in GF this past weekend
Town is expecting another national title
I could see it happening, unfortunately. They're good.
My cousins grandson is one of their best players, guys go there and get much better.
Denver did outplay them for long stretches, tho.
So there's some hope they can still trip up on the way to the title.

Here's an article on Bemidji State from the Mankato Free Press:

https://www.mankatofreepress.com/sports/local_sports/frederick-beavers-continue-to-put-pressure-on-mavericks/article_520b9372-51cd-11ea-ab08-97c9d301dee3.html#utm_campaign=blox&utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social

Before going into its final break of the season, the Minnesota State men’s hockey team probably thought it would have a good chance to lock up a third straight MacNaughton Cup on its home ice once it returned from a weekend off.

The first-place and third-ranked Mavericks host last-place and two-win Alabama Huntsville this weekend in their final home games of the regular season.

Following its home sweep of Northern Michigan, Minnesota State probably thought the Wildcats would return to the U.P. intent on getting a much-needed win or two against Bemidji State in a series between the WCHA’s second- and third-place teams.

Let them beat each other up, the idle Mavericks probably thought, and another league championship and home ice throughout the postseason would be all but theirs.

But that didn’t happen in Marquette.

Instead, Bemidji State remained one of the hottest teams in the country, going on the road and impressively sweeping Northern Michigan 5-0 and 5-1 to remain within five points of Minnesota State and lock up no worse than a second-place finish in the WCHA.

It’s now a two-team race with four games to play.

While the Mavericks could clinch and keep the MacNaughton on Saturday night — either right after the game or later on that night with Bemidji State playing at Alaska Anchorage — it sure seems like the race for the championship will come down to a regular season-ending series between them and the Beavers in Bemidji on Feb. 28-29.

Bemidji State goes to Anchorage this weekend in a matchup between the second- and eighth-place teams in the WCHA.

The Beavers should be the favorites, but they’re also going to a place where only one visiting team has taken all six points this season.

If the Seawolves can keep the Beavers from securing more than four points, Minnesota State can clinch the title with a sweep of the Chargers. If Anchorage can do the damage on Friday following a MSU’s hopeful victory, the Mavericks could win it with their fans still in the building on Saturday.

That might be a lot to ask for.

On Dec. 29, Minnesota State defeated Bemidji State 2-0 in the third-place game of the Mariucci Classic in Minneapolis.

Since then, both the Mavericks and Beavers are 10-1-1, with each team’s only loss coming against the other in a series split Jan. 24-25 in Mankato.

Bemidji State, has since moved up to No. 12 in the Pairwise (where MSU ranks second) and 13th in the opinion polls. In mid-January, the Beavers also were in second place in the WCHA but unranked in the U.S. College Hockey Online poll, while MSU, Bowling Green, Northern Michigan and Michigan Tech all sat among the top 20.

That was on the heels of four straight wins over the league’s bottom two teams, Ferris State and Alabama Huntsville, and some observers said the Beavers’ schedule was the reason for their record and just wait until they started playing the WCHA’s upper-division teams.

Since then, the Beavers took five points against Tech, split at Mankato and swept Bowling Green at home and Northern Michigan on the road.

They were told, “Prove it,” and they did.

Bemidji State has kept the pressure on Minnesota State, and that’s probably a good thing for the Mavericks, who don’t want to be coasting into the postseason.

The Mavericks are still in the driver’s seat, but the Beavers are in their rear-view mirror and gaining on them.

Bemidji with another convincing win last night, 4-1 over Alaska-Anchorage. This has been a dream season. I gotta believe a win tonight will lock up a spot in the NCAA tourney for the Beavers. Even if they get swept by Minnesota State next weekend, that shouldn't hurt them much or at all in the Pairwise. Outside chance they may need at least one win in the WCHA tourney, I suppose. Looks like we will be matched up with Lake Superior State. A loss to them could knock us out of the Top 14 if we also get swept by Minnesota State.

Better win tonight and not lose in the first round of the WCHA playoffs. Losses to bad teams kill you in the Pairwise.

I do see your point. I didn't realize Alaska-Anchorage was 57th out of 60 teams. That would hurt.

Better chance I'll be there Friday night. We'll see.....

Took a tie up in Anchorage last night. Thought that would drop us in the Pairwise a bit, but we held at #11. We have to stay above 13-14 because the smaller conferences will take a bid or two with teams that are out of the top 16.

It's been a great season. Let's finish the job Beavers!

I know SCSU is horrible. Sucks beyond all suck blah blah blah. However, they didn't listen to all that and swept #1 ranked UND this weekend. One game goes down as a tie because Huskies didn't win it until the shootout. Maybe we can make some noise in the NCHC playoffs.

Whew! Yeah, I'm only gonna feel comfortable if we are #13 or higher. And honestly I could be a little nervous at #13 too. We may need to be #12. The NCAA has a history of finding ways to screw the small schools. I remember one year they somehow put North Dakota in when there was another team higher in the Pairwise.

Beating UND is always sweet
But anyone who watched knows that ice was tilted one way
Good on the Huskies to get it done.
The Sue are relentless and waste little time on dirty hockey anymore, they are almost getting to the respectable stage.

Sioux outshot the Huskies. Who cares? Huskies outscored the Sioux. All that matters.

Huskies need to sweep Denver this weekend to gain home Ice for NCHC tournament. I'm waiting for today's poll to come out and perhaps the Huskies will at least be receiving points.
Huskies are really hard to figure out this year. They've had some great results against top competition. The sweep against UND, 7-2 over Mankato, a sweep over UMD, and of course the two ties against Bemidji. Then they've lost to some real scrubs.

So many times I see the losing team saying we dominated them. We outshot them by double. A couple things. In some of SCSU's best seasons we were routinely outshot by the opposition in win after win. Our goaltending wasn't great. Our team was coached by Motzko to take good shots not just take a lot of shots that had little to no chance to go in. However, there is a thing called goaltending that has a major impact on the games. How can somebody say they dominated the opponent when none of their shots find the net. If one team takes 60 shots with no goals and the other takes one shot and scores that team was not dominated. They won by superior goaltending. Getting the puck in the net is what the games all about. They don't award wins or points for taking a lot of shots.

I was never gone. Just posting a bit less frequently then the time that SCSU was ranked #1 in the country.
I expect all the Beaver fans to come here and post if you get a sweep of Mankato.
