NCAA Playoffs Game Night: 3-14-10

No.19 Vermont Catamounts 1 @ No.11 New Hampshire Wildcats 0 (OT) (Sunday)
Hockey East Quarterfinals – Game 3. Vermont wins Best of 3 series 2-1.
C/W Matt Marshall , UVM: Did not play.

Season Totals: 33 GP, 1-4-5, -4, 14 PIM

After not losing on home ice to a Hockey East opponent all season, UNH dropped games 2 and 3 to Vermont, both by 1-0 scores, and now the top-seeded Wildcats are out of the HEA playoffs. Vermont got two shutouts from Rob Madore (undrafted) after he gave up six goals in game one and was pulled, and an overtime goal from 1985-born New Hampshire-native Jay Anctil (undrafted) in Game 3 – Vermont’s 51st shot on Brian Foster (Panthers 5/05) - to move on. They will now go to TD Garden in Boston to face No.4 Boston College in the semifinals. No.19 Maine faces No.20 Boston University in the other HEA semifinals. Don’t expect Marshall, who has yet to play for the eighth seeded Catamounts in the playoffs, to suit up anytime soon with Vermont riding this momentum.

NCAA Playoffs Game Night: 3-13-10

Harvard Crimson 0 @ No.9 Cornell Big Red 3
ECAC Quarterfinals – Game 2. Cornell wins Best of 3 series 2-0.
C/W Alexander Killorn, HAR: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
Season Totals: 32 GP, 9-11-20, E, 26 PIM

Killorn (pictured) returned to the Crimson lineup, but it wasn’t enough as Cornell completed the quarterfinal sweep of Harvard and ended their season. Killorn, a sophomore, was one of the top prospects at the Lightning’s 2009 summer camp, and could be a signing target of the Lightning this offseason. He set career highs in games played (+2), goals (+3), assists (+3) and points (+6). He also nearly cut his PIM in half from his freshman year, 46 to 26.

No.19 Vermont Catamounts 1 @ No.11 New Hampshire Wildcats 0
Hockey East Quarterfinals – Game 2. Best of 3 series tied 1-1.
C/W Matt Marshall , UVM: Did not play.

Season Totals: 33 GP, 1-4-5, -4, 14 PIM

Vermont handed UNH their first home loss of the season when freshman David Pacan (Blackhawks 6/09) scored at the five minute mark of the third period. Vermont will try to complete the 8 vs. 1 upset Sunday night.

D Luke Witkowski , Western Mich. Univ.: Season complete.

Harvard Crimson 1 @ No.9 Cornell Big Red 5
ECAC Quarterfinals – Game 1. Cornell leads Best of 3 series 1-0
C/W Alexander Killorn, HAR: Did not play.
Season Totals: 31 GP, 9-11-20, E, 26 PIM

Fresh off their upset of Princeton, Harvard was crushed at Cornell without their third-leading scorer, Alex Killorn. No word so far as to why Killorn missed the game. Cornell scored the game's final four goals to get the win.

Hockey East Quarterfinals – Game 1. UNH leads Best of 3 series 1-0
C/W Matt Marshall , UVM: Did not play.

Season Totals: 33 GP, 1-4-5, -4, 14 PIM

Vermont and UNH will meet again Saturday night, with the Catamounts trying to force a deciding third game. Vermont held a 4-2 lead in this game, but top-seeded UNH hasn’t lost on home ice all season and they weren’t about to begin to do so in the playoffs.

NCAA Playoffs Game Night: 3-6-10

Harvard Crimson 3 @ Princeton Tigers 0
ECAC First Round – Game 2, Best of 3. Harvard wins series 2-0
C/W Alexander Killorn, HAR: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
Season Totals: 31 GP, 9-11-20, E, 26 PIM

Though they were outshot 37-17, ninth-seeded Harvard, which has struggled all season, somehow managed a shutout win on the road over a higher ranked club (No.8) and will now move on to the ECAC quarterfinals (opponent TBA). According to USCHO.com, Harvard (9-19-3) last won a first-round ECAC series in 2007 over Yale.

No.16 Vermont Catamounts 1 @ UMass-Lowell River Hawks 1 (OT)
C/W Matt Marshall , UVM: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
Season Totals: 33 GP, 1-4-5, -4, 14 PIM

Vermont needed a win to get into the Hockey East playoffs, coming into this game ninth in the conference. They didn’t get that win, but did get a Boston University win over Northeastern, which propelled Vermont over Northeastern into the final playoff spot at No.8. Their reward is facing the conference’s top seed, New Hampshire.

Western Michigan Broncos 1 @ No.14 Alaska-Fairbanks Nanooks 4
CCHA First Round – Game 2, Best of 3. Alaska wins series 2-0
D Luke Witkowski , WMU: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG

Season Totals: 32 GP, 2-4-6, -12, 67 PIM

The Nanooks completed a first round sweep of the Broncos, winning 4-1 in Alaska. This ends the season for the Broncos at 8-20-8. They will have a new coach next year. Witkowski completed his freshman season with two goals and four assists and played a very respectable amount of ice time for a freshman defenseman. He was among team leaders in PIM and finished comfortably at the bottom of the club's plus/minus rankings - understandable for a freshman defenseman.

C/W Matt Marshall , UVM: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG

Not a bad showing for Vermont (13-11-6), who got two points in a weekend series with the higher-ranked Wildcats.

Ohio State Buckeyes 3 @ Western Michigan Broncos 3
D Luke Witkowski , WMU: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
Season Totals: 28 GP, 2-4-6, -11, 61 PIM

C/W Alexander Killorn, HAR: 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
Season Totals: 26 GP, 9-10-19, E, 26 PIM

Killorn was coming off a two-goal game (and win) for the Crimson, but neither he nor the Crimson could continue that success Friday night at home against a Top-10 (USCHO) team.

No.17 Vermont Catamounts 4 @ No.13 New Hampshire Wildcats 5 (OT)
C/W Matt Marshall , UVM: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
Season Totals: 28 GP, 1-4-5, -4, 14 PIM

Kevin Leblanc (Blackhawks 7/06) scored at 1:25 of overtime to defeat Marshall’s Catamounts.

NCAA Game Night: 2-13-10

Union Dutchmen 3 @ Harvard Crimson 4
C/W Alexander Killorn, HAR: 2-0-2, +1, 0 PIM, 3 SOG, *First Star*
Season Totals: 25 GP, 9-10-19, +2, 26 PIM

Killorn’s goals gave Harvard leads of 3-0 and 4-0, then the Crimson hung on as the Dutchmen scored three late goals, including two in the final 31 seconds.

Merrimack Warriors 3 @ No.17 Vermont Catamounts 2
C/W Matt Marshall , UVM: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
Season Totals: 27 GP, 1-4-5, -4, 14 PIM

A tough loss for Vermont to a team that came into the game five games under .500. Only getting one point from the weekend series – a 2-2 tie Friday – will hurt. Marshall started the game centering the fourth line. He’s been playing a lot of wing this year.

Western Michigan Broncos 1 @ Northern Michigan Wildcats 2
D Luke Witkowski , WMU: Did not play.
Season Totals: 26 GP, 2-4-6, -10, 59 PIM

Witkowski missed his second straight game for the Broncos. The Wildcats scored with 11 seconds left to steal the win.
