There was an excellent chance Miami's stay in this season's NCHC Tournament would be a short one, after the RedHawks finished last in the conference and opened the playoffs at No. 2 North Dakota. But the hope was they would stick around for more than one period. The RedHawks gave up three goals in the … Continue reading N. Dakota ends Miami’s season
