For hockey fans who just can’t wait until April’s Frozen Four, heading to the Kohl Center this weekend might not be a bad idea, when No. 1 Denver takes on No. 3 Wisconsin. Both teams could find themselves earning No. 1 seeds in the NCAA tournament come late March.
The Pioneers (14-5-3, 10-3-3 WCHA) are riding a four-game unbeaten streak. But more important than the current unbeaten streak is DU’s recent domination of UW in Madison.
Denver is 11-2 at the Kohl Center since 2002 and only one of those losses was in the regular season. Although UW is 8-2-2 at home this season, DU plays well on the road, with a 6-3 mark. The Pioneers currently have a five-game winning streak over the Badgers, including a 3-0 victory in the WCHA Final Five last March.
Lets hope Bucky Badger can sweep the Pioneers. GO BUCKY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
