Ok, seriously, why “Final Five?”

The WCHA calls their semi and finals the Final Five. Before this season, five teams would travel to the semis and finals. Two teams would play a “play-in” game for the fourth spot.

Scouting the Mavericks

The Falcons are 2-5-1 all-time vs Minnesota State. The teams played four times this season, splitting the series 2-2. The Falcons were the only team to defeat the Mavericks at their home rink.

If the Falcons win, they will face the winner of the 7:07pm Friday game between Ferris State and Alaska-Anchorage. The championship game will be held Saturday at 7:07pm.
