Somebody needed to write something for the blog, so I figured that I would post the NCAA Men's Hockey tournament up so everybody can look at it.
NORTHEAST (Verizon Wireless Arena - Manchester, N.H.)
(3) UMass Lowell vs. Wisconsin
Denver vs. New Hampshire
EAST (Dunkin' Donuts Center - Providence, R.I.)
(1) Quinnipiac vs. Canisius
Boston College vs. Union
MIDWEST (Huntington Center - Toledo, Ohio)
Miami vs. Minnesota State
(4) Notre Dame vs. St. Cloud State
WEST (Van Andel Arena - Grand Rapids, Mich.)
(2) Minnesota vs. Yale
North Dakota vs. Niagara
First thoughts, I like the draw that UMass Lowell gets. I don't think that Wisconsin will continue the hotstreak that they had going in the WCHA playoffs. The possible 2nd round game between Minnesota and North Dakota will be a war. I was hoping for a WCHA team to actually be placed in the East bracket. It gets them away from the usual suspects. I look for the 1 and 3 seeds to advance to the Frozen Four, Minn. and ND get upset.
