Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- The UMD men's hockey team fell one spot to #3 in this week's U.S. College Hockey Online poll, that after earning only one point in their final regular season series.
The Bulldogs finish the regular season in second place in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA), three points behind first-place Minnesota.
UMD will host a WCHA first-round playoff series this weekend at AMSOIL Arena against Minnesota State-Mankato. That will be a best two-of-three series, with the third game to be played Sunday if necessary.
All those games can be seen on live television in the Northland on the My 9 Sports Network.
