It would seem that the Mavs would match up as well with SCSU as with anybody they'll see in conference play.

St. Cloud has a lot of little guys that like to skate around and make plays flying up and down the ice. They don't necessarily like to grind it out a la UND.

An argument could be made that if SCSU does what the Mavs do and do it better that it might not be such a good matchup.

Any thoughts, Shane?
