Here are the line-ups for Minnesota State and Ferris State in the first game of their WCHA series. Ferris State comes into the series leading the WCHA with 26 points, in just 14 games played, while the Mavericks are trying to tighten up the race. For more on the series and how it will affect the WCHA league title race, read our preview from earlier this week.
