The first game of the Final Five should be a good one. Plenty of people on Twitter are saying DU has a lock on the game, but this is still hockey, and anything could happen. DU needs this game to keep the NCAA tourney dreams alive. Not that they are necessarily out if they don't win the tournament, but a loss in the opening round wouldn't look very good.

For Wild fans, the biggest benefit of this game will be that Jason Zucker skates for DU. This is a good chance to get a look at one of the Wild's top prospects. A not so rare treat, as he plays the Gophers enough to get to see him, but still something to watch if you aren't a college hockey fan.

Enjoy the game, folks.
