>Mavs resist, but are soon swept away!

24 October 2004

>Recapping this weekends WCHA action, we begin with our Bulldogs. The Dogs completed their sweep of the Minnesota State Maverics, but were outshot in doing so. The Maverics went with only three lines, but those lines were flying, and peppered UMD goaltender Josh Johnson with 44 shots. Johnson was solid in goal, improving his record to 3-0-0, and leading the Bulldogs to a 4-1 win. The Dogs remain in first place in the WCHA, with a perfect conference record of 4-0-0.

The North Dakota Sioux remain in second place in the WCHA, despite a devastating 6-0 home loss to the Golden Gophers. Minnesota scored 20 seconds into the game, and never looked back, outshooting the Sioux 28-14 over the first two periods.

Denver and Wisconsin opened their conference seasons with sweeps, and claim third place. Denver blitzed Saint Cloud 6-1 on Saturday night, outscoring the Huskies 11-3 on the weekend. The pair of home wins nudges the Pioneers overall mark above the .500 mark; their record is now 3-2-0.

The BADgers shut down Michigan Tech with a pair of first period goals, on their way to outshooting the Huskies 46-13, and defeating Tech 3-0 for the sweep.

Alaska-Anchorage dropped round two of the “Battle of Alaska” series 6-0, and earned themselves a split with rival Alaska-Fairbanks. The Seawolves open their conference season next weekend at Houghton, MI, with two games against Michigan Tech, and follow it up by hosting the Bulldogs the next weekend.

Colorado College blasted Quinnipiac 7-2 in Colorado Springs to remain perfect at 4-0-0. Their record is deceiving, as they have yet to play any real competition. The Tigers begin the WCHA season at Ralph Englestad Arena next weekend, putting their now pristine record on the line.

A Quick look at the standings:


Minnesota Duluth 4 8

North Dakota 4 5

Wisconsin 2 4

Denver 2 4

Minnesota 2 2

Minnesota State 2 1
