    Hockey East Semis: UHN vs. Providence

    I like the lineup of this years Hockey East Tournament. It is Tournament time! Great to see Providence back to a legitimate contender. Lowell was there in the early days too! Welcome Notre Dame, thanks for knocking off BC. Looking forward to the UNH - PC Semifinal.

    I would love to see the Alliance clash for the title. ND looks on fire right now and UNH isnt to be underestimated, however it is more than possible.

    Either one of these scenarios will take place in the UNH-PC semifinal:

    * PC 6 UNH 0. 'Cats forget this is a single elimination game. Saracino nets 3 goals and Gillies posts the shutout; OR
    * UNH 7 PC 5. Saracino gets bad case of food poisoning in the North End (or Federal Hill?) Thursday night and is sidelined. In this classic defensive struggle, UNH blows three two-goal leads, but PC refuses their largesse. 'Cats go to the HE Finals to face ...

    UMass Lowell 1 Notre Dame 0. The "greatest 8th place team in HE history" loses in an upset of gargantuan proportions to the defending HE Champions.

    Without any of the Boston teams making it to the Garden this year, it will be interesting to see what attendance looks like ...

    Well ND is there and their lovely "fans" will likely show. The other three teams will have a good attendance I expect, but UML is on spring break so they may have a little dip when it comes to students

    Well its been an hour since we won so I don't think so. My guess is the early game though.

    Serious question: does Notre Dame have "subway alumni" for hockey too?

    Don't get me wrong, I'm glad BC is out ... but did it have to be Notre Dame??

    Early line from The Heights puts the Golden Domers as a 2.5 goal favorite over the Riverhawks ...

    Correct, unsurprisingly UML took the 5pm game

    Its one of those moments where you wish it could have ended with both of them eliminated but alas the lesser of two evils emerged I think.

    And I think that UML can pull off the W over ND.

    Anything ND has the "subway alumni" for everything. Half of them couldn't point to South Bend on the map.

    Yeah, I think that reflects my thoughts. Still stunning (but nice) to see BC lose to a #8 seed.

    Correct ... and interestingly, dating back to 1990 which was the first season when the #1 seed didn't get a bye into the HE semis, of the five (5) times a #1 seed has lost in the HE quarterfinals, it's happened three (3) times to BC. The most recent #1 seed to lose was our UNH Wildcats in 2010 (to UVM and midget goalie Madore), and probably still the most memorable was back in 1998 when Merrimack and outgoing Coach Ron Anderson toppled BU in three games. BC's trifecta came in 1991 (single elimination to NU) and in 2004 (best of 3 to BU ) ... and in now 2014 against Notre Dame. They say things happen in threes ...
