Thought I'd toss this out there for the teams and the people heading over.

If you live in New England, NESN is airing Friday's games. Brown-Colgate is at 11 AM, followed by Lowell-Northeastern at 2:15 PM.

Both of Saturday's games will air on NESN Plus, due to the main NESN channel airing the BC-Syracuse football game.

Brown v. Roy, if these two teams play each other Saturday, could be interesting. BTW, what's up with Kevin this year - o goals?

does anyone know what the overtime procedure is? 5 min or OT til there is a winner (such as the beanpot)?

What do you have against Tom Caron? It'd be nice to hear him calling an ECAC game instead of a Hockey East one for a change. (And for the record, I'm still ****ed off at NESN for letting Don Orsillo go.)

I don't think he's s good play-by-play guy. He's fine when he hosts pre-game and post-game shows for the Sox, but he doesn't call games very well and tends to talk about things that aren't happening on the ice for the majority of the time.

The Orsillo thing was a travesty. He's the best in the business!

on paper UML is the clear cut heavy favorite as they have more wins than all three other teams combined. Northeastern and Colgate have the talent for the upset but just haven't had the the season they have been hoping for. The one thing the underdogs have going is teams aren't used to traveling this far so maybe some jet lag or something could help, who knows. I'll guess a final with Colgate/Lowell and UML winning it all.

Saturday championship may go full OT. Not sure. NCAA rules on things like this specify that if not decided in 5 min OT the 'official' result is a tie.

Heading over to Ireland tonight with a handful of other NU students, some sightseeing for a few days before heading up to Belfast for the weekend. Should be fun, regardless of game outcome :)

Welcome!

Does this apply to conference tourneys as well? Pretty sure Northeastern was credited with two pairwise losses to Merrimack in last year's first round in games that went about 60 minutes of OT combined.

Not that we would have been top 16 even with two ties, but it would have helped.

As far as I know, the Beanpot is the only regular season tournament that uses "playoff-style" OT. So I would expect 5 minute OT, then shootout to determine who advances (and if necessary, who wins the tournament), but the games would count as ties in the pairwise.

TC always seems a little slow at reacting to what's happening on the ice.
I also think that Orsillo got the shaft.

A game that is decided with a goal with two teams on the ice are counted as wins/losses. Any games decided by the shootout are ties.
