    Pulling for the defending champs or Air Force. But if Union wins again, I'm okay with that.

    Badgers lost in double overtime last night - needed a win to get in. But, the fact they were playing to get in is a nice change from the last few years. The womens' championship is going on right now with UW down 1-0 going into the third period. Clarkson is playing well so it is going to be a challenge to come back.

    I've been to several NCAA hockey tournaments over the years and always love them.
    Eff LBD!

    Have to agree i would love to see Air Force win it. 2nd choice the defending champs!

    Have been to some of the tournament games in the past and enjoyed them when i lived in the midwest. Very happy that now i live in Arizona that Arizona State started its team two years ago. They are not good enough to make this tournament but maybe i will see some games again.

    My BGSU Falcons lost in 2 OTs to MTU for a trip to the NCAA.

    MTU seems like a great team. I am rooting for them now.

    Some fans claim one series or another runs "real race cars." What's everybody else running, fake race cars? :confused:

    We're hosting it this year (Miami University) instead of playing in it. The media doesn't pay any attention to
    the Cincinnati Cyclones much less an NCAA team that does well (or in this case, didn't do well). It pains me
    to say that I'll root for Notre Dame to win it all. I'm anti-ND in every other sport. I did get to see a couple of
    games on TV earlier in the year. Honestly, if the Miami RedHawks aren't playing I don't have that much interest
    unless I could go down and watch in person and I'm not physically strong enough to do that right now.

    Boston U was up on North Dakota 3-1 with 9:05 to play but the Fighting Hawks came back to tie it 3-3... TO overtime we go. This game has been better then any NHL game i saw all year.

    Harvard up 2-0 on Providence after 2. Harvard really looks good in particular on power plays.

    Thanks, I'm watching it now. No shots on goal in OT yet.

    BTW, I'm certain the PC police are freaking out at all the fans wearing North Dakota SIOUX jerseys instead of Hawks.

    20 minutes of OT still tied. Heading to a 2nd overtime period between Boston U and North Dakota!
    One North Dakota goal in the 1st overtime disallowed.

    Harvard outclassed Providence 3-0.

    Also seeing a ton of Fighting Sioux jerseys in of Fighting Hawks

    Some very nice goals in that Air Force-WMU game. That steal and breakaway was beautiful.

    Well the first two were nothing to write home about.

    UMass-Lowell easy over Cornell 5-0

    Denver over Michigan Tech 5-2
    Must say on this one a unranked Michigan Tech tried their best against the #1 ranked team. They never quit trying even when down 5-0.

    For a berth in the frozen 4

    Minnesota Duluth and Boston U heading to overtime tied 2-2.
    All three games in Fargo Region went to overtime including the Boston U game yesterday that went to a 5th period before it ended.

    Minnesota-Duluth wins at 1:42 of overtime on a power play.
    Boston U player called for tripping at 1:00 of overtime.
    The Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs now head to the United Center in Chicago home of the Blackhawks next week.

    Final game of the day for a berth in the frozen 4 just started between Harvard and Air Force.

    This has been a great tournament thus far (well except for Penn State's win). I've been watching this over the NHL. I really thought Air Force had the momentum with those two goals within 15 seconds of each other. Not to be, but Harvard did a great job of not panicking.

    They sure do. It's Denver 2, Penn State 0, but it's early and who knows? I think Penn State should have saved some of those goals the other night for Denver.
