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
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.

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.
