Click to enlarge

The University of North Dakota is now tied for first place in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association.

The Sioux rallied from down a goal in the final seven minutes to pull out a 4-3 victory against Minnesota State-Mankato in a sold-out Ralph Engelstad Arena.

Jason Gregoire scored the game-winner with 2:52 to go, lifting the Sioux into a tie with Denver at the top of the league standings with 29 points. North Dakota has played on less WCHA game than DU.

Since UND has played less games wouldn't that mean they have a higher winning percentage and make them 1st place by themselves? I realize both teams have the same amount of points. Go DU!

Hockey standings have always been posted by points, probably because of ties being worth 1 point.

USCHO allows you to view points or winning percentage in their standings.
