Or is it possible for BC to still finish 14th with a loss Friday and two losses by North Dakota?

For NMU, it's win and in, right?

Win would put us in the Top 15, but a loss puts us 17-18?

Yes, but NoDak has to lose Fri and NOT WIN Sat.

My results with NoMich say that, even with a win, they are in only because of the auto bid in many cases.

So, yes, lose and OUT.

You guys have the easiest scenario to explain - both you and MTU.

Here are all the possibilities I see. With the shortened conference tournament weekend this year, there aren't many surprises.

So far this seems to fit with other sources, but let me know if you see something I've missed.

So 12 of 16 are locked. Outside of autobids Saturday night could be meaningless if games on Friday go to form. Only the BC/BU winner might be alive to play spoiler. It'd be much more fun if there's an upset in the ECAC (looking at you, Harvard) and North Dakota is in the late game.

BC can get in if they lose in title game so not really a Michigan Tech situation. The drama might be in the NCHC consolation game.

I could be wrong but if BC doesn't win Hockey East their fate is tied to North Dakota. If UND wins either game they knock the Eagles out.

Yup. But considering North Dakota is the #4 seed in NCHC, i don't think it's crazy to think they go 0-2 or 0-1-1.

I think UND will win at least one. To me the big deal is in HE. NU being in, I don't think they will play as hard as they otherwise might.

Well you could say same about Cornell but i think they'll play as hard as they can. You wanna be the ones celebrating with a trophy.

There will be a lot of Northeastern and Providence fans in North Dakota this weekend.

NU has only recently discovered that carrying trophies around the ice at the Gahden is fun. "Please sir, more."
