SIOUX @ CC

Recommended Posts

Now 2-0 UMD on a PPG.

From Brad:

If UMD wins, the Sioux clinch home ice. If the Gophers win, UND climbs into a tie for 4th.

Not sure I understand this. How can a UMD win clinch us home ice? If we lose tonight, we're still in a tie for 5th with CC with one week left to play.

Because the gophers are behind CC in the standings. A UMD win means a UM loss, and that's what clinches home ice for us.

They are also assuming the Sioux sweep this weekend. Otherwise it would not be possible to catch Duluth tonight if we lost.

Sorry, but still not getting it. A UMD win keeps them in 4th. If we'd lose tonight to CC, we'd be tied with them for 5th and could still technically get passed by them next week for the final (5th) home ice spot, couldn't we?

That was a pretty goal. Nice move by Kristo.

Haven't seen many like that from him. He usually takes the shot instead of being patient and waiting out the goalie.

Very nice move.

Thanks TJ for showing Kristo a few tips :silly:

You're right, he must be assuming (expecting, hoping for) a Sioux win, as well.

I don't believe its true. I may be wrong. UMD wins. (plus the other two remaning games)

Sioux loss the rest of theirs games (including tonight). CC wins the rest of theirs. UND would not be in fifth place.

No way does a UMD win tonight guarantee a UND clinch of home ice tonight.
