WCHA Web Media Poll: Week 19

Sorry for the delay everyone, sometimes the day job gets in the way of time for Tech Hockey Guide but here is this week's WCHA Web Media Poll. Minnesota's split with Wisconsin was enough for St. Cloud State to finally overtake the Gophers this year by a one point margin. This marks the first time there is a new #1 team since Week 10 (December 17, 2012). Denver was the only other team to slip this week as they fell from fourth to sixth while idle. That slip was more about what Nebraska Omaha and Minnesota State did. Both Maverick teams swept their series. Nebraska Omaha swept a road series with Alaska Anchorage while Minnesota State won two games decisively against Michigan Tech and earn themselves a singe First Place vote. The rest of the poll is unchanged from last week. There are only three WCHA series this weekend while Wisconsin hosts Penn State for the first time ever and Nebraska Omaha plays an exhibition game with the US Development team.

Here's a look at the results the Tech Hockey Guide WCHA Web Media Poll for Week 19:
