Until this weekend, North Dakota and Denver were the only programs to have been at every Frozen Faceoff. Thanks to 2-0 and 4-2 wins over North Dakota in the best-of-three NCHC Quarterfinals, Denver is returning to St. Paul and North Dakota is not (what a great sentence). A week after the DU Hockey prognosis was decidedly bleak thanks to a sweep at the hands of CC, the mood has completely changed. Denver has a shot, albeit a long one, to go to St. Paul and defend their 2017-18 NCHC title. They will either play Minnesota Duluth or St. Cloud State depending on what happens in the CC-Western Michigan series that was postponed by a day thanks to that Bomb Cyclone.
Listen below for a full recap of the weekend and a look ahead to the Frozen Faceoff (not the Frozen Four as Nick mistakenly says at the beginning…smh, Nick).
