1. North Dakota
3. Western Michigan
Analysis: As good as RPI and Western Michigan are, I think we can say with relative certainty that this will be an all WCHA regional final. Although North Dakota just beat Denver in double OT, the Pioneers probably got the better of the play in that one so it should be a toss up. I do know that the Sioux probably wanted to see Denver less than anyone else in the field given all their talent up front and how good Sam Brittain is. Not a great reward for the #1 team in the country.
