So this is what the WCHA will look like when there's a Big Ten hockey conference, eh?
Yep, Minnesota and Wisconsin are out of the Final Five, marking the first time neither of the league's big schools will be at the conference's championship weekend since the one-site WCHA championship weekend/Final Five format began in 1988 (it became the Final Five in 1993).
Next week's games will be: Bemidji State vs. Minnesota Duluth at 3:37 p.m. Thursday afternoon, followed by Alaska-Anchorage vs. Colorado College at 7:07 p.m.
On Friday, Denver will play the BSU/UMD winner at 2:07 p.m. and North Dakota will take on the UAA/CC winner at 7:07 p.m.
The Broadmoor Trophy championship game take place at 7:07 p.m. Saturday (Remember: No third-place game this year). For more, read the WCHA's press release on the Final Five here.
Of course, Minnesota State will miss the Final Five for the eighth year in a row after getting knocked out by Denver over the weekend.
