Steven Stamkos and Anthony Cirelli were the game's first and third stars.

I thought the Lightning dominated the possession game in this contest and absolutely deserved the victory, but they tried their darndest to give the game away with unforced errors and a little bit of poor puck luck. In the end, though, Boston withered in the Third Period as the OG's, Stamkos and Hedman, again led the way to victory. They can smell it. Now's the start of the winning time.

One game after narrowly edging a very good St. Louis team in faceoffs the Lightning won 54% of their draws against a team that has Patrice Bergeron. Whether the credit goes to Jeff Halpern or black magic, I don't care. It's been an amazing turnaround in an area that can make or break you once the postseason finally rolls around.

This isn't the most dominant version of Steven Stamkos we've seen, pre-broken leg, but it might be the best and most well-rounded version of Steven Stamkos we've ever seen.

In the ECAC semifinals Friday afternoon, Cornell goalie Matthew Galajda (undrafted) pitched a 30-save shutout of the Bears to lead the Big Red to a berth in the ECAC finals against Clarkson. Tristan Mullin (undrafted) lead Cornell offensively with a goal and an assist.

On Saturday night, Mullin notched the equalizer in the 3rd to force overtime after a pair of 1st period power-play markers from Devin Brosseau (undrafted) had given the Golden Knights the 2-1 lead. Brosseau set up Chris Klack (undrafted) for the OT game winner for Clarkson and the 2019 ECAC tournament championship. The goal itself was controversial, the result of an un-whistled offsides, but one that was non-reviewable because the Golden Knights had briefly brought the puck back into the neutral zone. The game-winner was scored on Cornell goalie Austin McGrath (undrafted), seeing his first action in 5 weeks when he had to relieve Galajda in OT after Galajda was bizarrely injured when the goal fell onto his back during play.

Both teams will certainly earn a berth in the NCAA tournament when the tournament selections will be televised on ESPNU Sunday night, March 24.

The 2019 NCHC Frozen Faceoff featured Lightning prospects on three of the four represented teams, all ranked in the Top-5 by the USCHO.

On Friday night, the top-ranked Huskies cruised to a berth in Saturday’s finals handily dispensing with the Tigers after St. Cloud reeled off four-straight goals. Kings prospect David Hrenak (LAK, 2018 5th round pick) made 31-saves, allowing just a pair of power plays, and Patrick Newell (undrafted) leading the way for the Huskies with a goal and an assist.

In the other semifinal match, UMD goalie Hunter Shepard (undrafted) pitched a 25-save shutout to blank Denver while Bolt prospect Cole Koepke scored twice for the Bulldogs to lead Minnesota-Duluth in the finals berth against St. Cloud State. The two teams played a scoreless first 40 minutes before Koepke wristed the first goal of the game just 42 seconds into 3rd period. Koepke and Louie Roehl (undrafted) both scored empty netters in the last two minutes of the game to put the UMD victory on ice. Koepke also led the game with five shots on goal. Denver netminder and Red Wings prospect Filip Larsson (DET, 2016 6th round pick) allowed just one goal on 31 shots in defeat, but it was one goal too many.

The Pioneers rediscovered their offense Saturday night in the consolation game against cross-state rival Colorado College. Blackhawks prospect Ian Mitchell (CHI, 2017 2nd round pick) and Liam Finlay (undrafted) both scored twice and Devin Cooley (undrafted) allowed just one goal on 22 shots as Denver claimed 3rd place in the conference tourney.

In the finals Saturday night, UMD bested the #1 St. Cloud squad in a dramatic double OT thriller when Wild prospect Nick Swaney (MIN, 2017 7th round pick) fired home the game-winner for the Bulldogs. Both teams scored even-strength in the first, and the both teams added special teams markers in the 3rd – a power play goal by the Huskies and shortie by the Bulldogs – to force the extra sessions. Shepard made 37 saves to give UMD its second conference championship in three years, while Hrenak made 27 saves in defeat.

All three of the teams will certainly earn a berth in the NCAA tournament when the tournament selections will be televised on ESPNU Sunday night, March 24.
