2013 WCHA Final Five: Minnesota State vs. Wisconsin Line Combinations

Matthew Semisch - Radio Free Omaha

The Mavericks and Badgers kick things off at 2:07 p.m. CT on Fox Sports North and Fox College Sports.

Greetings live from the Xcel Energy Center for the first game of the 2013 WCHA Final Five! The tournament to award the Broadmoor Trophy kicks off at 2:07 p.m. CT when Minnesota State and Wisconsin play in the first quarterfinal.

As far as lines, the biggest news is that Wisconsin defenseman Jake McCabe (Buffalo Sabres) is in the lineup with usual defensive partner Frankie Simonelli. Both were injured last weekend against Minnesota Duluth as our own Andy Johnson notes.

Stephon Williams gets the nod in net for Minnesota State. Joel Rumpel, meanwhile, will start for the Badgers.
