NCAA Hockey Tournament is kicking off right now with the (4) Yale up 2-0 on (1) Minnesota. Not to jinx Yale, but I love to see Minnesota choke in the tournament every year. Happens a lot
Very strange to watch the tournament without any maize & blue. Sad to see them playing at Van Andel with our logo everywhere but we're no where to be found.
Also up today is:
(4) Wisconsin vs (1) Umass-Lowell - 4:30 (Manchester, NH)
(3) Niagara vs (2) North Dakota - 5:30 (Grand Rapids)
(2) New Hampshire vs (3) Denver - 8:00 (Manchester, NH)
I'll be interested to see if the CCHA can finally break through and get a national title this year. The conference has been on the cusp in recent years. The CCHA has been the runner up in 4 of the last 5 years (Ferris 2012, Michigan 2011, Miami 2009, Notre Dame 2008). GIven that the NCAA put the only 2 CCHA teams in the same regional, I'd say the chances are low
