After leaping up from #16 to #12 with the rout of #1 Minnesota last night, Michigan crept up another spot to #11 today as Vermont lost in the Hockey East tournament. Fellow bubble team Northeastern also lost in the HE tournament today which knocked them down a few slots as well.
Michigan is now sitting as 3 seed(!) and if they had just swept PSU and held against MSU last weekend we would've been in contention for a 1 seed. RPI is fairly volatile.
Beating PSU this Thursday is an absolute must and beating Wisconsin after that would probably put us in contention for a 2 seed as far-fetched as that seemed coming into this weekend. Just beat PSU and make the tournament
(and yes it looks like the PSU game may overlap with the Wofford game if we get the 7 PM CT slot instead of the 2 PM CT sl)
