A few things two Knights before Christmas

I like numbers and stats and I was perusing a few today. First, while I realize that the Pairwise Rankings mean nothing until selection Sunday in March after the Conference tourneys, the current numbers can give a snap shot of where the various teams in the WCHA stand right now.

As far as strength of Schedule goes, UND has played the 5th toughest schedule to date. Their Schedule during the second half isn’t easy either. UND has to travel to Minnesota, Nebraska Omaha and Denver. UND also still has a few tough series at home against C.C. and SCSU.
