Friday Morning Skate

It's WCHA semifinal weekend and the No. 3 Mavericks are hosting Michigan Tech in a best-of-three series at the Verizon Center. Should be a good one.

Minnesota State had nine players on the WCHA's all-conference team. That alone shows you how deep they are. However, they go even deeper than that, which might be the key to any postseason success they have this year.

This series is a rematch of last year's semifinals, which the Huskies won in Houghton. And looking over that roster, even though they have just one all-league player, there are a lot of familiar names there. Read about that and more in my College Hockey Gameday.

The other semifinal will between Northern Michigan and Bowling Green in Marquette, Mich. The Mining Journal has a preview. The Falcons hope they can redeem themselves after getting swept by the Wildcats in mid-January.

USCHO previews the WCHA semifinals here, and College Hockey News previews them here. CHN also has a story about Bowling Green's quest to win a WCHA championship.
