'Cats To Face Nanooks In CCHA Playoff Action

 

MARQUETTE, Mich. – Northern Michigan University (17-11-8) will host the Alaska Nanooks (18-9-9) in the quarterfinal round of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA) Tournament beginning Friday (March 12) at 7:35 p.m. The quarterfinal round is a best-of-three series. The second game would be Saturday (March 13 at 7:35 p.m.) and if a third game would be necessary it would be played Sunday (March 14) with a time to be determined.
The Wildcats squared off against the Nanooks four times during the 2009-10 regular season. NMU and Alaska tied both games in Fairbanks in late November (3-3, 4-4), but the Nanooks took both shootouts. In the rematch in Marquette in late January the ‘Cats won the shootout after a 2-2 draw Jan.29 then picked up a 3-2 win the next night.
