After last year's run to their first-ever NCAA Frozen Four appearance, the St. Cloud State men's hockey team has recalibrated expectations as it enters this year's postseason Saturday in St Paul.

While the goal was once just making the NCAA postseason, recent successes have the Huskies chasing loftier goals than ever.

The Huskies open the NCAA West Regional on Saturday at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul against Notre Dame. Top-seed and No. 1-ranked Minnesota plays Robert Morris in the Region's other semifinal on Saturday.

The winners of the two semifinals meet in Sunday's Regional Final with a spot in the 2014 Frozen Four in Philadelphia on the line.
