Nebraska-Omaha blogger Matthew Semisch has this week’s WCHA Power Rankings right here.

Cornell University coach Mike Schafer left Denver with two losses and not a high opinion of WCHA referees. No. 12-ranked Cornell was called for 25 penalties in the series. Schafer’s Saturday post-game video comments, including, “I will not come back to the WCHA” are here.

Certainly the best story in the WCHA this season is first-year coach Minnesota State Mankato coach Mike Hastings and the Purple Mavericks (14-6-2), who have won 11 of the last 12 games. Mankato was 12-24-2 and 11th in the WCHA last season. Shane Frederick of the Mankato Free Press has a few thoughts following last weekend’s home sweep of Providence here.

U.S. College Hockey Online also has some thoughts on WCHA play last weekend, including two St. Cloud State home losses to Northern Michigan here.
