Mavericks remain No. 2, Huskies up to No. 3

Need a bit more intrigue in this weekend's WCHA series between Minnesota State and Michigan Tech?

The teams will be two of the top three teams in the country when they meet at Mankato's Verizon Wireless Center.

Minnesota State remained No. 2 in the country in this week's U.S. College Hockey Online rankings, while Michigan Tech moved up to No. 3 in the poll. They own the same spots in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine poll, each moving up one spot from last week.

Both teams were idle this past weekend and will meet at 7:07 p.m. both Friday and Saturday.

The first-place Mavericks sit just one point ahead of the second-place Huskies atop the WCHA standings and can win the MacNaughton Cup with two wins on the penultimate weekend of the regular season.

The Mavericks remained No. 1 in the Pairwise Rankings, which determine the NCAA tournament field. Michigan Tech is No. 5.
