WCHA at the Xcel Energy Center

Let me tell you! It has been crazy down here by the Xcel Energy Center. With the WCHA just down the street, hockey fans are everywhere. Plus... the whole St. Patrick's Day thing.

If you aren't down here, you are certainly missing out!

Take it from Erik Haula, who leads Minnesota in scoring with 44 points, "North Dakota's one of our biggest rivalries. Those games tend to get a little crazy."

No. Kidding.
