Head coach Enrico Blasi views playoff hockey as a fresh start for every team in the league, despite their regular season finishes. “It’s a new season,” Blasi said. “Everybody starts with a clean slate.

A sweep of North Dakota in this weekend’s season finale would give the RedHawks those six points, enough to secure them a share of the Penrose Cup and the top seed in the NCHC Tournament. North Dakota (24-6-3, 15-5-2-0 NCHC) needs just one point to claim the Penrose Cup outright. “It’s going to be...Read More
