NCHC playoff preview: Miami at Denver

Denver has been one of the best teams in college hockey the past couple of seasons, and is currently one of the hottest heading into the NCHC Tournament. The Pioneers, who claimed the league's regular season title with 56 points, 12 clear of the field, won nine of its final 10 games to pull away … Continue reading NCHC playoff preview: Miami at Denver


Preview: Western Michigan at Miami

Since Miami swept Western Michigan at Lawson Arena during the COVID year, the Broncos are winless in their last 10 games vs. the RedHawks, outscoring them, 47-20. Until 2021, MU led WMU in the all-time series, but with the RedHawks' recent struggles, they are now nine games under .500 all-time vs. the Broncos. While Miami's … Continue reading Preview: Western Michigan at Miami

Preview: Miami at Minn.-Duluth

Minn.-Duluth is the only NCHC team Miami has yet to face this season and the lone conference foe it will not host in 2022-23. The Bulldogs have been highly streaky this season, having most recently lost three, won three and lost three more before beating Denver, 6-5 in overtime last Saturday. Miami is 1-15-2 all-time … Continue reading Preview: Miami at Minn.-Duluth

Preview: Omaha at Miami

Tragically, Omaha assistant coach Paul Jerrard passed away on Wednesday after battling cancer. He was 57. Jerrard played in five NHL games, was an assistant in that league for five seasons and has spent the last five campaigns behind the bench for the Mavericks. UNO is 7-1-1 in its last nine games, including a sweep … Continue reading Preview: Omaha at Miami

Preview: Miami at St. Cloud State

Last weekend was a complete disaster for Miami, and now the RedHawks visit the team that beat them by a 19-1 aggregate margin when they traveled to St. Cloud State for a weekend series last February. It can't get a whole lot worse than a month of getting outscored, 32-2 in January, right? For Miami, … Continue reading Preview: Miami at St. Cloud State

Preview: North Dakota at Miami

Looking at the schedule last summer, it was hard to imagine North Dakota would be in seventh place in the NCHC when it came to Oxford. But the Fighting Hawks' loss to the RedHawks in Grand Forks two months ago started their current 2-6-1 skid vs. league opponents. Miami is winless in its last four … Continue reading Preview: North Dakota at Miami

Preview: Miami at Omaha

Miami has struggled miserably in the last few seasons of NCHC play, but for whatever reason the RedHawks have dominated Omaha in that span. MU is 7-2-1 vs. the Mavericks under Chris Bergeron, and UNO is the only league team against which Miami has a winning record (29-21-7, .570 winning percentage). The RedHawks swept Omaha … Continue reading Preview: Miami at Omaha

Preview: Miami at Denver

Defending Division I champion Denver dished out both kinds of punishment to Miami when these teams met in Oxford to open the NCHC slate 2 1/2 months ago: A drubbing and a heartbreaker. The Pioneers opened the series with a dominating 4-0 win in then rallied from a one-goal deficit to score three late goals … Continue reading Preview: Miami at Denver

Preview: Niagara at Miami

The first-ever meeting between Niagara and Miami was nearly postponed. But following a deadly winter storm in the Buffalo area, the Purple Eagles -- who already had a November game vs. St. Lawrence canceled due to a major snowstorm -- made it to Oxford and are set to take on the RedHawks in the inaugural … Continue reading Preview: Niagara at Miami

Preview: St. Cloud State at Miami

St. Cloud State has won five straight games, including a rare sweep at North Dakota last weekend. The Huskies have scored 18 goals in their last three games, including that pair of wins in Grand Forks, and they head to Oxford second in the NCHC only to Denver with 17 points. A look at this … Continue reading Preview: St. Cloud State at Miami

Preview: Michigan St. at Miami

These former CCHA foes broke an eight-year cease fire last season when they met in East Lansing for a weekend series early last season, and Michigan State won both nights. The teams wrap up the home-and-home contract this weekend, and although the Spartans are 71-34-6 all-time vs. Miami, the RedHawks are 7-2-1 in their last … Continue reading Preview: Michigan St. at Miami

Preview: Denver at Miami

So far this season, Denver won the Ice Breaker at home, was swept at UMass and earned a pair of wins vs. Providence at Magness Arena last weekend. That means the defending national champions are 0-2 on the road, although in previous years they have fattened up at Cady Arena, winning five straight on the … Continue reading Preview: Denver at Miami

Preview: Miami at Colorado College

For the majority of the NCHC's nine-year existence, the contenders for the league standings basement have been Miami and Colorado College. But the Tigers have dominated the RedHawks the past five seasons, going 9-2-2 in their last 13 meetings. Strangely, Miami has fared much better in Colorado Springs, at over 6,500 feet altitude, going 2-3-1 … Continue reading Preview: Miami at Colorado College

Preview: Miami at St. Cloud St.

While Miami has been hanging out in Minnesota for the past nine days, St. Cloud State did not leave the state for its scheduled road trip at Denver, as the Huskies postponed their second straight series because of COVID. The RedHawks are six days removed from a 2-2 tie (plus shootout point) at Duluth that … Continue reading Preview: Miami at St. Cloud St.

Preview: Miami at Minn.-Duluth

Miami has lost seven straight games against Minn.-Duluth and enters this road series with a .182 winning percentage in 33 meetings vs. the Bulldogs. But UMD has been slumping, with a 1-5 record since the end of November, although the Bulldogs have played one of the toughest schedules in Division I, with Bemidji State, Minnesota, … Continue reading Preview: Miami at Minn.-Duluth

Preview: Miami at St. Cloud St.

Strange that a pair of NCHC foes that have played almost exclusively intra-conference games since December 2019 have not met in 51 weeks. But Miami and St. Cloud State haven't faced each other since Jan. 31-Feb. 1, 2020 when the Huskies swept the RedHawks on SCSU's home ice. Sixth-ranked St. Cloud State is second in … Continue reading Preview: Miami at St. Cloud St.

Preview: W. Michigan at Miami

Just a couple of years ago, Miami held a substantial lead in the all-time series vs. Western Michigan. But the Broncos have won 10 of the last 13 meetings between these teams and the RedHawks are now just a game over .500 vs. WMU. MU was swept in the four-game set vs. Western Michigan last … Continue reading Preview: W. Michigan at Miami

Preview: Ferris St. at Miami

Miami and Ferris State were annual foes when they were conference mates in the CCHA, but since that league dissolved and the teams joined different leagues they have not renewed their all-time series. That ends this weekend, as the Bulldogs visit Oxford for the first time in 10 years, as their last overall meeting came … Continue reading Preview: Ferris St. at Miami
