Wisconsin vs Bemidji State Game Preview
Bemidji State not only rarely goes to the penalty box but when it does, it’s the best team in the country at limiting goals. The Beavers kill 93 percent of opponent powerplays, part of that comes from their success in the faceoff circle. The Beavers win 53.8 percent of the faceoffs, which ranks seventh in the nation.
The top-seeded Wisconsin Badgers and the Bemidji State Beavers get the 2021 NCAA Men’s Ice Hockey Tournament underway on Friday with a regional semifinal matchup from Bridgeport, Connecticut.
Wisconsin, the Bridgeport Regional’s No. 1 seed, is the fourth overall seed in the tournament. The Badgers captured the Big Ten regular-season championship and are making their first appearance in the NCAA Tournament since 2014. Wisconsin fell in the Big Ten championship game to Minnesota, 6-4, but made things interesting in the third period, cutting a 5-1 deficit to one.
Bemidji State was also a No. 4 seed during the 2009 tournament. Remember them? The Beavers beat No. 2 overall seed Notre Dame in the first round then toppled Cornell to make it to their first Frozen Four. It only takes two wins to make it, and the Beavers have arguably an easier path this season — Wisconsin is good, but they are beatable, and a potential rematch with conference foe Lake Superior State (a team the Beavers beat twice this year) is possible in the regional final.
