I put together some statistics the other night to try to see where each team stood against each other and themselves.  Take a gander at what the output was:

UMD SCSU
3.62 G/GM 2.5
2.62 GA/GM 2.67
1 G/MRG -0.17
24% PP% 24.10%
83% PK% 84.60%
32.62 SOGF/GM 30.83
28.88 SOGA/GM 27.5
110 Blocks 78
60 PEN 36
183 PIM 72
44.30% FO% 47.60%
5 SHG 0

But what about the statistical differences on the days they emerge victorious compared to those in which they do not?

Pretty large margins in various areas for both teams.  If both teams end up playing at the top of their games, we should be in for a fantastic game tonight.  Take a look at Chris's article for more information on tonight's game.
