Having the Bulldogs back inside the Xcel Energy Center will be welcome for quite a few Wild fans. You see, the last time they played here, they won a national championship. But hey, no big deal. This will be the first game for the Dogs in this tournament, and they will have their hands full with the comeback kids from DU. The Pioneers won in OT over the Michigan Tech Huskies yesterday, with a goal from Wild propect Jason Zucker.

This should be a really good game to watch, so make sure you're tuned in. For Wild fans, obviously Zucker is a guy to watch, but also keep an eye on two of the top college free agents in Jack Connolly and JT Brown. You never know. They could be Wild property someday soon.

Winner goes to the finals tomorrow at seven. Good fun.
