ICERS FACE-OFF AGAINST NORTH DAKOTA:
WGII teams bat
By GARY LEVY
A DailySprts Analysis
If you think the Big Ten basketball
e is loggammed, take a look at the
HA standings.. With four games
remaining for each team, the hockey
race is equally as tight leaving the
playoff picture unsettled and the
Michigan icers in the middle of it.
North Dakota, perched atop the
league standings with a 17-6-1 mark, is
the only team to have clinched one of
the eight available playoff-spots.
Michigan finds itself in somewhat of
odd position. Although in second
ace with a 12-8-2 record, the icers
have yet to secure a playoff berth.
One victory, however, would assure
Michigan a spot.
-Dan Farrell's icers have their work'
cut out for them if they hope to unseat
North Dakota from the number one
spot. Michigan would have to win all of
its final four games while the Sioux lost
all of their remaining games.
Michigan can narrow these slim odds
when it faces North Dakota in Grand
Forks tonight and tomorrow. However,
the icers have not fared well on the road
this season with a 2-7 mark, so in all
likelihood, first place is out of the
Holding on to second place would
seem to be Michigan's goal for the
remainder of the season. Three
victories would assuresthe icers of the
runner-up spot, thus giving them a
home-ice advantage throughout the
This is how the playoffs are set up:
The top eight finishers during the
regular season qualify. These teams
are paired off according to the final
standings with the first four seeded
squads hosting the two-game, .total
goals wins series.
The four teams that advance pair off
in similar series with the top two seeds
receiving the home ice advantage.
Of the final two teams, the one that
finished higher in the regular season
standings automatically qualifies as
one of the two midwest teams for the
NCAA finals held in Providence, R.I.
The 'other' team will in all probability
face the Central Collegiate Hockey
Association champion in a one-game
playoff (at a CCHA rink) to determine
the second midwest representative:
Looking at this system, it would be to
the icers' enormous advantage to hold
on to their second place position since
the team has been nearly indestructible
at Yost Arena this season, winning 16,
losing only once and tying twice.
Minnesota (15-13-0), Notre Dame (12-
11-1) and Colorado College (13-12-1) are
all within reach of Michigan and are
also battling for the four, home-ice
advantage spots in the opening round.
The Gophers and Irish square off in
South Bend in a crucial season finale
and a split in the series could spoil both
teams chances of passing Michigan.
Minnesota-Duluth (13-15-0), Michigan
Tech (10-12-2) and Wisconsin (11-15-0),
in the sixth, seventh and eighth
positions, are hoping to hold on to their
precious, playoff spots. Michigan State
(10-14-0), currently in ninth place, finds
itself in a dogfight to latch onto a
playoff spot, and will have it tough with
home games against Notre Dame and a
home and away final series against
Denver (7-14-1), buried in tenth place,
is not yet mathematically eliminated
from the playoff picture, although its
chances are slim to none.
From the looks of it, the scramble for
the playoffs will not be determined until
the final third period sirens have
sounded across the WCHA.
