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:

NESCAC Semi-Final Recap; Amherst to face Middlebury in NESCAC finals






Williams vs. Middlebury

Commish’s Note: Below is our inaugural NCAA hockey post brought to you none other that than the infamous LPsinpa. Although admittedly late in the season, the knowledge and understand of college hockey (D3 in particular) should more than supplement for the lack of content thus far…


After an amazing first round that had the top 3 seeds (Norwich, Castleton and Salem State) losing, anything could happen up in Henniker, NH this weekend. This will be the first time that ECAC east tournament will not taken place at Norwich. Instead D3 Fans, players and parents will be treated to the friendly confines of Lee Clement Arena. There are not any NCAA pool C bids at stake this weekend. The only way a team from the ECAC East will get a bid to the NCAA tourney is for them to win two games this weekend and gain an automatic qualifier.
