The NCAA's. UND vs. Duluth in Men's Hockey Posted March 27 A little history here: Back in the 80's and before, the Frozen Four played a semifinal game on Thursday and the other Semifinal game on Friday with the championship game on Saturday. After analyzing the stats they decided to move both semifinal games to Thursday because they discovered that the Thursday winner ended up winning over 65% of the championship games no matter their seeding due to the extra day of rest. This concerns me about the game against Duluth Saturday. They have had the rest whereas UND has not. Of course Sandelin was whining that they didn't get to play to prepare his team for the final but really? Who wouldn't take a walkover in a national championship tourney. But due to a 4-0 lead I think this game was well managed by the coaches and except for Gaber no one got hurt. They ran four lines the entire game which I am hoping helps them with Saturday's game. Time to stop hearing about the two time defending champ by beat Duluth tomorrow!
