NCAA Playoff Update


The only game that I caught was the BU-BC game. Not the most exciting game until the third period. BC took a 1-0 lead at the 17:50 minute mark of the 2st period. BU decided halfway through the third period that they wanted to play hockey the following night and scored 3 goals in :44 seconds, a Hockey East tournament record. BC narrowed the score to 3-2 with 5:42 left on the clock but couldn’t tie the game with John Muse pulled for an extra attacker. Final Score: Bu-3 BC-2. Last night was most likely the end of the road for BC this year who needed to win the Hockey East Playoffs if they wanted to go to the big dance. No Hockey East championship for BC + no at large bid for BC = new national champion in 2009…

Here are rest of the results from last night college hockey games:
