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.
Season Totals: 32 GP, 2-4-6, -13, 67 PIM

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]
