  1. First of all, congrats to the Gophers on another regular season championship.

    Other than Michigan, though, the remaining 5 teams of the B1G have to fight for the right to make the NCAA playoffs by winning the B1G Tournament.

    • the other 5 teams, although especially Wisconsin, should have to win to have the right to still play Div I hockey.

      • Well, I think that’s a bit harsh. On the other hand, I wonder if Eaves will still be coaching the Badgers this next fall…
