I can get BC between 2nd & 4th overall, from what I read it's having Western Michigan upset Miami -though it's not strictly off that.

Western Mich wins
or
A Miami win and a Notre Dame win or tie versus Michigan in the consolation game will work.

A Merrimack win doesn't move UNH up. So we can kick their butt and like it! :p

Don't think I get that on DISH, maybe its one of the millions of junk channels that never have anything on

Most of the area gets NESN+ which is also called "NESN National" because it is shown on the satellites. NESN+ is active (used to be only when there is programming). Comcast does offer the channel on the digital tier (84), but I can't seem to find it in HD.

You can find your NESN+ channel with this link.

What sucks about it is that NESN Plus isn't in hi-def. If you're not going to go to the games, one of the great things about the games at the Garden (HE and Beanpot) is that you get to watch college in the awesome hi-def they use for the Bruins.

For all their hard work last night and (probably) tonight, the Eagles still might get sent to St. Louis rather than Manchester. It seems almost unjust, but BC can win pretty much anywhere. UNH might have a small grin, knowing that their 'loss' allowed them to 'avoid' BC, but that smile will get wiped out if they see that North Dakota is coming to Manchester. Be careful what you wish for.

What possible teams are in the St. Louis bracket?

Thanks to both, looks like I do get it on 474, should be a wail of a game. Wish it was HD but better than nothing. Seems HE always has to be second fiddle to something, at least its not Red Sox exhibition :rolleyes:

so, if Notre Dame can win or tie (it's at 3:30) then the Miami/WMU game doesnt matter because if Miami wins, that scenario comes true and if WMU wins, that does as well

It will feel strange rooting for the Fighting Irish

Well played, Warriors. A more than worthy opponent. Good luck in the NCAAs.

Congratulations to both BC and Merrimack for a great game. Perhaps a rematch in St Paul for these two.

In some ways, Merrimack looks like New England's version of North Dakota...big and strong. If they outlast UNH in the NCAAs, that'll only pour wet cement on the Wildcats' perception as a team that becomes a doormat once tournament time rolls around.

Great game! On the edge of my seat all third period. Merrimack just keeps coming no matter what. Glad to escape with a win.

Sucks that we are going to St. Louis because of this pathetic UNH team. Oh well, just have to beat those guys like we do the guys in the East.

I assure you your team isn't whining like a (VERY SELECT) few of their fans are. Championship teams win wherever they go, and I expect BC will do the same in St. Louis.

Please....I'd just wish I could have been able to drive an hour and a half to see my team play and just spend money on gas rather than spend a few hundred bucks to go west. Shame on me.

Please, I understand, but whining about it isn't going to change anything. Been there before, it sucks, but you guys make your fan base look bad by whining about it. Bid on a regional to guarantee you'll be there.

Then get BC to apply to host a regional. They will need to find an off campus arena to partner with as NCAAs has no intentions of on campus sites in the east. BC could try with the Providence Civic Center. Otherwise stop the whining those are the rules and everybody knows it and agrees to it in the off season. Like all host schools UNH needs to put work into being the host, and they get to play in their regional if they make it, this is to get schools to host.
