NCAA Hockey Tournament - Bracket unveiled at Noon EST on ESPNU

Submitted by MGoArchive on March 18th, 2018 at 8:43 AM

Weird thing happened yesterday - North Dakota and Minnesota got bumped off the pairwise due a couple teams winning their conference tournaments.

This is a good thing for Michigan, as it bumped us up to 8 in the pairwise. The NCAA will reveal the bracket at Noon EST today.

Beating Northeastern is certainly doable, beating St. Cloud State in Minnesota would be an uphill battle...But it's college hockey playoffs - anything can happen!

Did a couple bidstealers sneak in? I'm gathering Princeton stole the ECAC auto bid from Clarkson and BU stole the HE autobid from Providence which thus knocked out Minnesota and NoDak?

I'm hoping the committee moves the full Michigan-Northeastern game (rather than either team, separately) somewhere east, like Bridgeport. I'll admit that's wishful thinking, but I read that there is a precedent for such things if it is done to help attendance. And Sioux Falls is going to have wretched attendance.
