Good morning and happy Friday to you.
This weekend the University of North Dakota travel to Colorado Springs to take on the high flying Colorado College Tigers. The Tigers are putting a lot of pucks in the net but their defense has been suspect – the Tigers are giving up 3.5 goals a game that’s good for a national ranking of 54th overall. UND is giving up goal less per game at 2.5 and that has UND ranked at 20th nationally.
UND is ranked 39th on the power play and 19th on the penalty kill.
C.C. is ranked 7th nationally on the power play and 57 on the penalty kill.
Both Colorado College and UND are middle of the pack in penalty minutes; C.C. 26th and UND 29th.
You can watch both games at the dreaded Floating Tiger site this weekend. The price is $6.95 for a single game or you can watch both games for a price of $10.95 [Click to view]
