The loss by Duluth tonight helped. A Miami win over Michigan would come pretty close to getting the Nanooks in.


I have a sinking feeling that UM is going to figure out a way to upset Miami at the Joe.

Definitely not the time for us to be rooting for underdogs. :eek:

Michigan up 3-1 over Miami in the 3rd. Figures. :mad: :mad: :mad:

I think UAF needs 2 of the the following four things to happen to make it.

Miami to beat Ferris State
Northern Michigan to beat Michigan
Cornell to beat Union
Boston College to beat Maine

Priceless

Alaska is essentially in. The only thing that could eliminate the 'Nooks is if all the autobids (Maine, Union, Michigan) win. The CCHA consolation game is irrelevant.

You are right, the Pairwise works in mysterious ways.

I had done a bracket picking Cornell, Michigan and Maine to win autobids and Miami to beat Ferris. That bracket left UAF in 13th position with Ferris in 14th and three autobids below them. So I just assumed that if Ferris won the scenario would flip and Ferris would make it and UAF would be left out, but somehow just plugging in Ferris to beat Miami in the third place game allows Ferris to jump UAF, but also moves UAF a spot so that they are still safe.

So a win by Ferris helps make sure they get it, but doesn't hurt UAF.

Keep the season thread alive for at least one more week, because we're finally going to the big skate. :D :eek:

Congratulations. For me it has always been between Alaska and Northern Michigan for who was my second favorite CCHA team. I hope to meet you in the Frozen Four in Detroit!

This is too weird -- as far as I can tell, Brandon Knelsen and Dustin Molle are now playing for the Idaho Steelheads, while Dion Knelsen is on loan to the Anchorage Aces . . . and the teams are playing each other tonight and tomorrow in Anchorage.

Oh, how I wish I could see those games!

Dion had two assists and the shootout game winner last night. Not too shabby! I have little doubt we'll be watching him in the NHL in a few years.

Not taking anything from Dion, but he didn't have the game winner. He had two assists and a goal in the shootout. He is fantastic.

well the Nanooks should be able to take something from the fact that they gave Boston College its best game of the postseason. If not for Sather rining a puck off the crossbar late in the third period instead of hitting the net that game could've gone into overtime. It was a fairly evenly played game. BC pretty much scored at will the rest of the tournament outscoring the rest of it sopponents 21-8.
