Nineteen

Minnesota State broke into the uscho.com poll for the first time this season, coming in at No. 19 after going 6-1-2 in their last nine games. More important to the Mavericks, however was their Pairwise ranking, which is 15th (tied with Minnesota). The Pairwise mimics the way the NCAA determines its 16-team tournament field.

Here is this week's USCHO.com/CSTV poll (WCHA teams in bold):

Happy New Year Shane thanks for the blog and keep those backhanded comments coming. I don’t know where any of these teams are going to be in April but the Mavs are starting to get some puck luck. We’re come’in.
