WHO: Miami RedHawks (9-10-3) at Colorado College Tigers (2-16-4).
WHERE: Colorado Springs World Arena.
WHEN: Friday—9:37 p.m. Saturday—9:07 p.m.
MIAMI RADIO: Both nights—WMOH-AM (1450), Hamilton, Ohio. Saturday—WKBV (AM) 1490, Richmond, Ind.
COLORADO COLLEGE RADIO: Both nights—KRDO-AM (1420) and KRDO-FM (105.5).
NOTES: Colorado College has the second-worst record in college hockey (Alabama-Huntsville is last) and is winless in its last eight games.
Alexander Krushelynski, whose father Mike played in the NHL, is the Tigers’ top player, having recorded 38 goals and 58 assists in his career. He leads the team with 17 points, including seven goals, but no other Tiger has more than 12 points.
Goalie Josh Thorimbert has logged almost all of Colorado College’s minutes, and he has a 3.40 goals-against average and an .894 save percentage.
Considering its situation, if Miami can’t earn all six points on this trip it might as well call it a season. The RedHawks are 2-8-2 in their last 12 games and are barely in front of the Tigers in the NCHC standings.
