North Dakota, with just one loss in its last nine games (7-1-1), visits top-ranked Minnesota
this weekend, which has just one loss in its last 15 games (11-1-3). Both teams are tied for third
in the WCHA with 19 points, just one point behind league-leading Denver and Nebraska Omaha,
both of which have played two more games than UND and Minnesota.
UND climbed one spot and is now ranked No. 6 in both the USCHO.com
and USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine polls, released on Monday.
Minnesota remained the nation’s top-ranked team in both poll.
