I was opining earlier as well that we match up better with WMU than with ND. However, I had forgotten that this week is Spring Break at ND (3/11 - 3/17), so there would be reduced/limited student attendance at the hockey games this Friday and Saturday, which I suppose could make playing at ND less intimidating.
This may shock and surprise you, but ND always schedules its Spring Break so that the students are NOT on campus on St. Patrick's Day :) . . . . although this year given the calendar this may not quite work out.
