The Michigan Tech Huskies’ (21-16-5) season comes to a head when they travel to Marquette for the WCHA Championship game on Saturday night against the Northern Michigan Wildcats (25-14-3). In a year dominated by Minnesota State, it really is amazing that the two U.P. schools with first-year head coaches ended up in this position. Now we get one of the best rivalries in the game in a winner-take-all game: What more could anyone want?
The first round of the WCHA playoffs takes place in Bemidji when the Michigan Tech Huskies (17-15-5) face the Bemidji State Beavers (16-12-8) in a best-of-three showdown.
