Besides the great Senior Night game and the sweep of Western that came along with these two victories, Michigan also made a nice move in the Pairwise rankings - up to #6 - a solid #2 seed. It would appear to me that if UM wins 2 @ NMU this weekend, and then makes the Joe for the CCHA Semis they will be a 2 seed. I think they have bid #21 in a row locked up.
I also believe UM clinched (at worst) a #2 seed in the CCHA playoffs. Even if Northern sweeps UM and Miami sweeps, we tie in points, but will have more conference wins.
EDIT - my bad, and just saw Mfan_in_Ohio's Pairwaise update in the Diaries. It's very good and very detailed. I didn't even think to look there. My bad!
