BU Wins NCAA National Championship

National Champions

Boston University won the Division I National Championship tonight 4-3 in OT. If you did not watch this game then shame on you. Any hockey fan than that considers themself legitimate should have been tuned to ESPN for this showdown. If you think hockey is a joke of a sport, then tonight should have changed your mind. Commissionerdangle and I thought for sure Miami had this locked up when they went up 3-1 with less than 3:30 left in the third. When Jack Parker pulled his goalie with 3:00 minutes left in the third we though for sure this thing was over. But for BU to score 2 goals in less than a minute had us screaming “OOOOOOOOOOOOOOH GIIIIIIIIIIIIIIRL”….next thing you know, our 24 pack was gone and BU was partying in DC. In my opinion Miami had this locked up, in a game  I thought the ice was slightly slanted toward BU, Miami made the most of its chances. While I did not have a vested interest in this tilt, I was pulling for Miami, sorry Coach Malloy and Brandon Smith I thought it was locked down.

NCAA Frozen Four Starts Tonight!!!

So, I don’t have enough knowledge of the four teams in the Frozen Four this year or enough time to break it down. However, don’t doubt that every member of the Loge will be watching this. There is nothing better than the Frozen Four, and that includes the lousy NCAA basketball National Championship. Note: After players make a great play in hockey, there is no jumping around acting like a lunatic. So if you’re looking for showboating, check out the NBA games tonight, not college hockey. Not to mention there are a few unreal NHL games on tonight with huge playoff implications. Notably Boston vs. Montreal.

…so I’ll defer to Rumors & Rants to help me out on this one…

R&R has a great break down of each team in the Frozen Four…enjoy….

From Rumors & Rants:

So, the NCAA basketball tournament is over. We’re on to baseball season in earnest. But what in God’s name are we going to do between now and the College World Series for NCAA sports entertainment?

Now for the preview, with predictions and everything!

Would anyone care for some hockey? Anyone? Anyone?

Well hey, it only lasts one more week, and this is it, so deal with it. And besides, it’s pretty damn exciting if you give it a chance. So please do.

The first two rounds of the NCAA hockey tournament were ridiculous — if you wanted upsets in basketball and didn’t get enough you should’ve watched hockey — and now the Frozen Four is set with no interference from the other, “more important,” tournament.

In my effort to make you look informed when you actually do watch this, here is my Frozen Four preview.

NCAA Playoff Update

frozenfourlogo

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:
