BC 2, Clemson 0
BC picks up a nice win on senior night. Still, the Eagles are mired in 6th in the ACC and will need to have a nice, strong finish in order to solidify a spot in the NCAAs. They have one regular season game left, next Friday against V. Tech.
BC 4, Merrimack 3 (OT)
Umm... wtf? Props to Merrimack for taking us to overtime, I guess, but thank God the Eagles pulled it out in the end. Brock Bradford potted the winner - his sixth goal of the year. His nine points put him second in Hockey East, behind only Brian Gibbons.
Colorado College 2, Denver 2 (OT)
Why are they playing such a major rivalry series so early in the season? CC jumped out to a 2-0 lead five minutes into the second period, but Rhett Rakshani and Luke Salazar (hooray, he's on my fantasy team) scored a goal each for the homestanding Pioneers to earn the tie. Richard Bachman made 44 saves to keep his team in the game.
New Hampshire 4, Northeastern 2
There goes Northeastern's perfect start to the season. UNH carried play on home ice, outshooting NU 37-29, but the couldn't shake the Huskies until 17:05 in the 3rd, when Phil DiSemone scored to put UNH on top 3-2. Mike Sislo added an empty-netter.
Notre Dame 3, Northern Michigan 2
Notre Dame cashes in three times in ten power play attempts to get a big CCHA win.
Alaska 2, Miami 1
My irrational dislike for Miami (OH) made me very pleased to see this result. Dion Knelsen scored a pair for UA (nee Fairbanks).
Massachusetts 9, Providence 4
Minnesota 3, Minnesota State 3 (ot)
These two teams will go at it again tonight in the inaugural "State of Hockey Showcase" at the XCel Center in St. Paul. Jordan Schroeder assisted on all 3 Gopher goals, and the red hot Ryan Stoa scored a go-ahead goal with 12 minutes to go. Cameron Cooper equalized less than two minutes later, and the teams remained deadlocked.
North Dakota 3, Wisconsin 2
North Dakota roars back with two goals in the third to beat hapless Wisconsin.
Boston College 4, Vermont 1
Shea (x2), Taverna, and Welch score the goals for the #4 Eagles, who take on NU today at 2.
Minnesota 2, St. Cloud State 1
The Gophers are hoping for a Wisco trip-up this weekend to take over the #1 spot. Gigi Marvin scores the game winner for Minnesota.
Wisconsin 2, Minnesota-Duluth 1
No trip-up from the perfect Badgers yet. Erika Lawler and Brooke Ammerman score unanswered goals in the second to knock off the defending champion Bulldogs.
Colgate 4, Mercyhurst 3
But I am soooo wrong when I call Mercyhurst overrated.
Syracuse 10, Sacred Heart 0
This score is only important for one reason: Maine LOST to Sacred Heart.
