NCAA West Regional Semifinal (St. Paul, MN)
C/W Matt Marshall , UVM: Did not play.
Season Totals: 33 GP, 1-4-5, -4, 14 PIM
Vermont actually led this game 2-1 after the first period, but were then outshot 30-15 over the final two periods, being outscored 2-0. The Catamounts' season and impressive playoff run is now over. Marshall (pictured) was a healthy scratch for the fifth straight game after the sophomore only missed one regular season contest. His speed and defensive ability are assets to the Catamounts, and heâ€™ll likely be a fixture on at least their third line next season.

Killorn, a sophomore, was one of the top prospects at the Lightningâ€™s 2009 summer camp and could be a signing target of the Lightning this offseason. Speculation from Harvard followers is heâ€™ll return to the Crimson next season, however. Stay tuned.
