Weekend results in the WCHA have left UNO in a tie for third place with North Dakota and Denver. In one of the bigger matchups of the conference schedule, Minnesota hosted North Dakota and went 1-0-1 to take over first place.
The Golden Gophers are joined at the top by St. Cloud State who went 2-0 at home against Denver. Minnesota and St. Cloud pace the WCHA with 22 points.
Overall, despite not playing, it's hard to think of a better outcome for the Mavs. The teams most likely standing in UNO's way for the conference crown gained ground, but only marginally.
