Once again, chance to clinch home ice

After chance after chance...after chance of being able to improve its WCHA standing, the Wisconsin Badgers will look to finally seal home ice in the WCHA playoffs when they host the North Dakota Fighting Sioux this weekend at the Kohl Center.

Let's recap what has happened in the past few weekends for Wisconsin. After going to Minnesota and sweeping the Gophers, the Badgers have given away three third period leads, and have come away with one point in the process of doing just that.

North Dakota is looking to clinch its 14th MacNaughton Cup, and can earn a share of that with just one point, and with a win or two ties will earn sole possession of first place for the WCHA regular season.

Wisconsin can earn home ice in the first round of the WCHA playoffs with two points this weekend, no matter how.

The big news today surrounding Badger hockey, no matter what happens today, is that the plans for the outdoor game at Camp Randall have been officially unveiled.

More to come after the game, don't have time for an entirely long post tonight, so I'll check in afterwards and get more into the current WCHA picture.

Tune in live at 7 PM CT for WSUM's broadcast.
