Nothing much in the way of surprises from UAA coach Matt Thomas as far as his lineup goes tonight in a pivotal WCHA road game against UAF -- the match doubles as Game 3 of the Governor's Cup, which is currently tied 1-1.
Thomas is going with 12 forwards and six defensemen -- we mention that because 15 times this season, roughly half the games, he's gone with 11 and 7. Sophomore defenseman Ben Matthews is in the lineup after being a scratch the last seven games and senior Chris Kamal gets the start.
Oh, just noticed another change: Freshman Dylan Hubbs, usually the third-line right winger, is centering the fourth line and winger-defenseman Blake Leask is at right wing on the third line.
Here are the lines and pairings:
