Huskies don't have as much to play for this weekend. They'll have a the #1 seed in the NCHC playoffs and likely a #1 seed in the NCAA's even if they lose out the rest of the way. The main logical reason they will want to sweep the F'n Hawks is to hurt their chances to make the NCAA tournament, thus opening up the Sioux Falls regional for the Huskies. Of course, the perpetual reason to beat UND is because they are UND.

That being said, I expect to see Smith in net for one or both nights. Hrenak will be the #1 goalie from there on out. If any other players are sitting, it's likely because they are banged up a bit and Bob wants to let them fully heal. I don't believe Bob will rotate out starters just for "rest". He'll want to maintain rhythm as much as possible.

It's nice being able to ignore the out of town scoreboard because those games are basically inconsequential to the Huskies' NCAA seed. However, I'll still be cheering for conference upsets to crush the bubble teams, specifically UND.
It's almost like it's something bigger than yourself.

I tell ya hwhat, if we were playing any team but UND (or UMD) this weekend I could see the guys having a "let-down" (well, as much of one as a Regular Season Champion can have in an effectively-pointless game(s) lol); this is our biggest Rival (with UMD coming in second, not counting the goofs as they're non-con now) in their building, so I think the guys come out flying.

I definitely think we go back to the platoon we've used all season this weekend, Smitty on Friday and Big Dave on Saturday.

This is a weekend where we can rest some guys if they're banged up or just worn out from the ridiculous gauntlet we traversed the last month+

I know some people would love to end UND's season this weekend (effectively), but I'm not gonna worry about results so long as the guys play hard; as they say, it's hard to end a team's season and we're entering perhaps the hardest building to play in in the country against a desperate team on Senior Weekend.

If you ask me, this weekend is gonna be all about getting Mikey to The Century Club; only 3 Points away! :)

Agreed HF64. However, I'd swap the goalie nights. Dave on Friday and Smitty on Saturday. Just in case we sweep, and they get chippy.

It would be really sweet revenge to knock North Dakota out of the NCAA's.
I still remember last year, the 2010 (Championship) and 2012 (Quarterfinal) WCHA Final Five's and the 2015 West Regional in Fargo. A little payback is due.

I would love to see UND on the road for the NCHC playoffs. But above all, stay healthy!

SCTimes wrote:St. Cloud State forward Patrick Newell is likely to miss the series against North Dakota because of an upper body injury. He suffered the injury early in Friday's game against Denver, finished the game, but sat out Saturday night against the Pioneers.

"He's out this weekend," Huskies coach Bob Motzko said of Newell. "If it was playoffs, he'd probably play."

Prophetic!
