The Buckeyes (12-7-5-1 CCHA) enter the weekend in a fourth-place tie with Ferris State. Both teams have accumulated 42 points, and are five points back of third-place Notre Dame. Ferris State is off this weekend and will travel to Michigan to close out the season on March 1 and 2. The Buckeyes have a good chance to get four points against Michigan (7-15-2-2 CCHA), which would set up an interesting showdown against first-place Miami University next week, especially if the Redhawks don't see positive results at Lake Superior this weekend (7:35 p.m. ET Friday, 7:05 p.m. ET Saturday).
The Buckeyes and Wolverines will start at 6:35 p.m. ET on Friday, with the Big Ten Network providing TV coverage. Meanwhile the puck drops at 7:05 p.m. ET on Saturday, and the game can be found on Comcast TV in Michigan.
Elsewhere, the Bowling Green Falcons will take on Northern Michigan at BGSU Ice Arena on Friday and Saturday in a battle of teams near the bottom of the league standings. Both games will start at 7:05 p.m. ET.
