The Road to the Final Five - WCHA Statistics in March

I threw some stats together once again for y'all just to get an idea of all the top WCHA teams in different categories over the month of March, which comes out to four games for each teams.

This will give one a good idea at how his/her team has been playing lately, and to some extent, what they can expect in their series this weekend.  Now keep in mind difficulty of opponents do play a factor, but this is just a statistical overview.

Now, not that this matters at all, but I'm going to give the top teams, in order, a number 1, 2 or 3 based on how they placed on that given category (3 being the best).  The same thing goes for players too, but just the top 3.  The chart below is the team's that tallied in, the amount of categories they were recognized under, followed by the amount of points they scored.

So based on the way teams have been playing over the last four games, again take into consideration opponent difficulty, one can cautiously infer to expect similar results this weekend in the WCHA playoffs.
