The St. Cloud State Huskies took on top-ranked North Dakota Friday afternoon in a National Collegiate Hockey Conference Frozen Faceoff semifinal. SCSU likely punched their ticket to the NCAA Tournament with a 3-1 win.
Schmidt learned he would stick with the big club and play in the game against his hometown team during the morning skate. There was speculation that he would be reassigned to Hershey (AHL) with other defensemen returning from injury.
After missing out on the inaugural Frozen Faceoff last season, the SCSU men's hockey team will make the trek to Minneapolis on Friday to take on rival North Dakota. The Huskies swept Nebraska-Omaha to reach the tournament.
The Minnesota Wild earned their eighth straight road win by topping the Nashville Predators 3-2 on Tuesday night. The Wild now have 85 points on the season and remain in the top wild card spot for the playoffs.
There were two possible start times for the matchup at Target Center: 4:07 and 7:07, with the other semifinal pitting Miami University against Denver. It seemed like a no-brainer, with the games being televised on CBS Sports Network, that the juiciest matchup between the Huskies and NoDak would take place in prime time.
The game was tied at 35 at the half, but the Buckeyes controlled play for a majority of the final 20 minutes on their way to the win. The Gophers got within two points twice in the game's final ten minutes but could not get over the hump
