The UMD Bulldogs got back in the win column last night with a great 3-0 win over the Minnesota Gophers. It was UMD G Brady Hjelle’s 1st collegiate shutout, which also was UMD’s 1st shutout of UMTC since 1980. By my math, that’s 30 years. Put that in perspective…these teams usually play each other 4 times a season.
The win clinches a home playoff series in the 1st round of the WCHA playoffs for the Dogs. One last playoff series at the old DECC.
The Dogs make the trip to Alaska Anchorage next weekend, then it’s playoff time. Hopefully last night’s win kicks off a little run for the Dogs.
