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.

Playing Alaska means we get to show you (again) AKF’s pregame video. This polar bear does a lot of damage with a hockey stick (and F-16s). Maybe too much damage. [youtube]K9cYcRotufU[/youtube]

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.
