Saturday Morning Update

Bottom line, to get an at-large bid in the NCAA Hockey Tournament, the Gophers need the following to occur today.......
  • Boston University to beat Mass-Lowell in the Hockey East championship game
  • North Dakota to beat Wisconsin in the WCHA third place game
  • Mercyhurst to beat Air Force in the CHA championship game

According to Saturday morning's USCHO PairWise predictor, all three of these scenarios need to occur for the Gophers to make the tournament.

For Gopher fans, the North Dakota/Wisconsin game is at 2pm in St. Paul; BU/Lowell game is at 6pm CDT in Boston; Mercyhurst/Air Force is at 6pm in Rochester, NY. Keep an eye or ear tuned to these three games, check back here Sunday morning for updates, and tune into ESPN2 Sunday morning at 10:30 CDT for the selection show.

Have fun today!

** HT to Nate, Charlie, Carle, Jeff, and "The Mathemetician" for their assessments, as well as to (again) for continued tremendous coverage of college hockey.
