What Was Good
Ferris State-It's getting tough to ignore how good this team has been. It should be interesting because they've been beating up the bottom of the CCHA, but their schedule gets tougher in the second half of the season.
Minnesota State-A sweep at Bemidji moved their record from below .500 to above .500 and from 31st to 23rd in the RPI.
Lake Superior-I thought they'd be pretty brutal this year, but they've swept two weekends in a row for the first time since Scott Borek took them on a sleigh ride to the bottom of the standings. They're fighting for a top four spot in the CCHA, and nobody below them seems to be showing signs of life.
Minnesota-I guess you have to give Don Lucia credit for not sinking so far as to start losing to the WCHA's two worst programs.
Colorado College-They had a tough road series in St. Cloud and came away with three points.
Wisconsin-Three points at the REA is pretty impressive, even against a beaten up Sioux team.
Michigan State-They managed to not give away points to Bowling Green.
Mike Dorr-After a couple years of toiling and being the butt of some jokes, Dorr became eligible to play for Minnesota State at 4pm on Saturday, and by 9pm was scoring the game-winning goal for the Mavericks. He's the only player in the country scoring at a pace of two points per game.
What Wasn't So Good
Michigan and Notre Dame: Before the season, this looked like a huge series, but much like the entire year, both teams found a way to disappoint on the weekend.
North Dakota-The Sioux are 2-5-2 since Chay Genoway went down against St. Cloud.
St. Cloud-I think it's officially time to start panicking about Mike Lee and the World Juniors.
Northern Michigan-Yikes. Reid Ellingson had been playing so well, but things really flew off the tracks at the Soo.
