Hopefully I'll get a pass for these game. Should be a fun regional. Yale got screwed. Basically got dropped from the 9 seed to the 12 seed. But they're closer to home, so I guess that's one silver lining.

What is ESPN 360.com? Must watch this from my computer?

It's a website that ensures that almost nobody from Alaska will be able to watch. They only make it available to certain ISP's or college campuses, and no ISP up here has it. Not sure if UAF or UAA campuses have access to it.

You can go to www.espn360.com to see if it's available in your area.

You will be fine. Sarah Palin says you guys can see Worcester from your windows, so there's no need for ISP or cable Television.

I'm looking out my window and all I see is snow and condos....err, igloos, not condos. :(

Clearly the NCAA wants to do what it can to boost attendance. High prices and forcing people to buy both days isn't a way to do that. I would just about guarantee that all four sites will unbundle the tickets so that you can buy the first day without buying the second. And if your team makes it to the second day, you'll have no problem scooping up tickets for Day 2 from fans of the losing schools.

Yale deserved what they got (this coming from a Yale fan).
And personally, after we skate circles around North Dakota :cool: I like our matchup against BC better than against Miami.

I like the region; BC and No. Dakota are just bad pennies for each other; keep turning up!
No slight to Yale of course; they're a strong team, and I'd say that game will be a real scrap.
Don't know much about the Nanooks- love to hear about Alaska from Alaska fans and their intra-conference rivals!
Programming note; I'm a BC fan in Boston; any sense on what local television might do about this game? Put simply; can't get out to Worcester, and don't really want to watch it on a computer; what are my prospects?

Strong defense (top ranked last year, near the top this year), decent offense, and generally good goaltending. Scott Greenham has been good overall in net, but he's put up a couple stinkers this year as well; he's only a sophomore and is following in the steps of a guy who's been starting for the NY Rangers this year, so he'll only get better.

We have a couple of fantastic offensive talents in Dion Knelson and Andy Taranto, although Taranto was banged up in the NMU series.

The 'Nooks had a 10 game unbeaten streak until we got stonewalled against NMU last weekend, although I take the NMU series with a grain of salt because Marquette is literally a black hole for Nanook hockey.

The travel won't be as big of a deal as some people make it, this team flies to/from Michigan and Ohio all season long, and really Massachusetts isn't that much farther.

BC definitely deserves to be favored, but if Alaska can play its trademark defensive game things could get interesting.

Yale fan here. Will be attending both sessions in Worcester. Yale fans are in kind of a quandry because we don't know which team will show up at any given game these days. The loss of Sean Backman to injury just before the ECAC playoffs is a huge issue for Yale, it definitely put them off their game in the ECAC loss to Brown, except for Game 2 where they looked like the forechecking, high scoring Yale we were used to all season. If the "A" game appears on Saturday, Yale can play with anyone.

Given I was able to watch Arcobello in HS for 3 years but haven't seen him since, I'm excited you guys are in Worcester too.

Unless I'm reading it wrong, both Saturday games will be re-broadcast Sunday on ESPNU.
