Bracket Unveiled; Gophers Out

Here it is!

Northeast Regional (Manchester, NH):
  • #1 Boston University vs. #4 Ohio State
  • #2 North Dakota vs. #3 New Hampshire

Midwest Regional (Grand Rapids, MI):

  • #1 Notre Dame vs. #4 Bemidji State
  • #2 Northeastern vs. #3 Cornell

East Regional (Bridgeport, CT):

  • #1 Michigan vs. #4 Air Force
  • #2 Yale vs. #3 Vermont

West Regional (Minneapolis, MN):

  • #1 Denver vs. #4 Miami (OH)
  • #2 Minnesota-Duluth vs. #3 Princeton

Ohio State gets the 16th spot by virtue of a tie-breaker. Saturday's Wisconsin/North Dakota third place game in the WCHA killed the Gophers, as did the St. Lawrence/Princeton third place tilt in the ECAC. The Gophers absolutely needed Nodak and St. Lawrence to win.

DP will be at the West Regional next weekend and will cover the NCAA Tournament through its conclusion. A recap of the Gopher hockey season will appear on this site this week. The focus will also shift toward Twins baseball this week. Stay tuned, and thanks for reading!
