BSU @ UND

Recommended Posts

Didn't get a chance to watch UND vs. Mankato, but it sounds like we should have won on Friday and could have won on Saturday. 

Another two important non-conference games. I don't think BSU will be horrendous and a potential "PWR killer", but, UND should absolutely sweep the Beavers at home.

How'd Judd play in contrast to Johnson? How about Tychonick/Frisch?

It sounds like Casey barely played, if he played at all, and I don’t think Judd played more than a couple shifts on Saturday. (I only saw Saturday’s game). 

Frisch was good on Saturday I thought.

That’s gotta suck being that extra skater and sitting there on the bench for the entire game.

Non-conference games are so important, you need to win them, especially at home against a team that's middle of the pack. If this team is as good as I think they are, it's a must sweep.

What exactly do we know about BSU this year.  They tied SCSU twice.

I know that ratings and rankings mean almost nothing this time of year. But, can anyone explain how USCHO pairwise could have UND #2 and CHN has UND #4?

Absolutely agree. From what I saw against Canisius, and heard about the series against Mankato, this should be a sweep for our boys.

I don't know, but it always seems like they play us tough at the beginning of the year and then go down from there. 

They totally do. Beavs always bring it against us.

We need to figure out a way to score against Bemidji's style of play.   I know they have given us problems before, but if we want to be contenders this year, this would be a nice step in that direction.  The power play will need to start clicking to help open up Bemidji State.  If we can get early leads it might just open them up a bit so we can take advantage.

I only glanced at USCHO, and am guessing it’s based on 2nd highest RPI,  by the looks of things.

This is certainly an early season trap game. Bemidji State played SCSU well, but they were off last week. The Bevs are still an unknown at this point.

Tough team to play against.  Defense important again offensively when BSU packs it in and it's tough to get the puck to the net. 

I'd like to see them try something different with the Pinto line.

After not making the tournament the last two years and how much trouble UND has had with Bemidji, there better not be any such thing as a trap game, especially when they didn’t come up with a win in Mankato.

I'd like them to try the flip play from center ice like the kid that got the first roping penalty in hockey history.

How come this one isn't home and home like in the past?  Or has that been an every other year sort of thing?

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong but based on my superficial understanding, the pairwise is based off head-to-head comparisons or common opponents.  As of this point in the season, there is not nearly enough comparisons to get an accurate picture of who is better than who across the country.

And RPI (wins/losses and strength of schedule). If you look at PWR on USCHO, the rankings at this time are pretty much completely based on a team’s RPI. So that’s  very little to go on, especially considering the Ivies haven’t played yet.

An interesting stat in your posted article about UND MH players drink more b%%r?
" According to College Hockey News, Bemidji State ranks 59th of 60 college hockey teams in average height (5-foot-11.07) and 49th of 60 teams in average weight (184.1 pounds). UND, meanwhile, ranks 26th in average height (6-0.17) and first in weight (194.1). "
