NOTES: Minnesota-Duluth has not played a game since Dec. 12, so Miami has a chance to catch the Bulldogs rusty, at least early in the weekend series.
UMD was shut out in each of its last two games, 3-0 losses at home vs. North Dakota.
The Bulldogs went through a rough patch defensively earlier this season but have allowed just nine goals in their last seven games, including three straight blankings.
Austin Farley leads UMD in goals (10) and points (19), and Tony Cameranesi is tops in assists with 12 and second in points with 17 despite missing two games.
Kasimir Kaskisuo has been in net for all of the Bulldogs’ games this season, posting a 1.91 goals-against average and a save percentage of .923.
These teams never met until 2008 in the NCAA West Regional. They split their four-game set last season, and UMD holds a 4-3 edge in the all-time series.
