    Maybe at 530. Women’s game has to be over by then. Wouldn’t put money on that.

    I’m guessing it will be a little later than that. Women’s game still has 17 minutes to play and its tied.

    Maybe they put SCSU in Michigan’s regional because they have a better chance to beat them in a big game than Notre Dame as a way to punish for skipping the WMU game.

    Regardless, glad to face UMass instead of Cloud. Not that either was as favorable as getting MTU or down would have been.

    Worcester has a NHL regulation ice surface. The Gophers seem to play much better on the smaller ice surfaces. It’s all about match ups and if the Gophers play their game, they will win!

    Is this the game thread then?

    UMass doesn’t take penalties. Hopefully 50+ minutes of this game are 5 on 5 for viewing purposes.

    Think the Gophers have them on forward depth. Think they might have better offensive d men but Gopher unit probably better overall.

    Extremely experienced goaltending I’d maybe give a slight edge to them there.

    Overall, if the Gophers show up I I’d say they win the first one.

    I am guessing a game specific one or regional may be made

    This could be Michigan’s year…young but uber talented. Then again, they did lose to ND 4 times and won once by the thinnest of margins. ND/UMD style of play shuts down speed teams.

    As I look at that bracket I smell an upset in at least one of the Mankato/Cloud/Gopher games. If I was filling out a bracket for five bucks my two upsets would be Qpac and Harvard winning.

    People underestimate WMU, too, though, because they are not one of the usual names.

    Exciting time of year. It feels like every year the tourney gets better and better.

    To Bonin’s point, there are some STUDS on Harvard. Thats my first round “underrated game to watch” selection.

    Kato ditching black as a color a year or two ago makes their color/jersey combo just gorgeous.

    It’s obviously so 4 games can be televised on ESPNU during the same day. NCAA makes so much money from football & basketball…that hockey attendance during regionals is purely an afterthought.

    Looked like McKay jumped up to avoid the puck coming out of the back corner, but it deflected in off his stick.

    I was typing a post about how awful Harvard was playing and then they score.

    But it was a bank shot off the goalie after missing the net. :lol:

    Then boom. 3-2
