Tickets punched; Frozen Four set

This is easily the most unlikely Frozen Four ever I would think.

As Chuck pointed out, Bemidji State just defeated Cornell 4-1 to earn their first Frozen Four berth. I thought Cornell played well early, but the Beavers never went away, and took control in the 3rd period. Congrats to their program!

In the NE Regional Final, Boston U and New Hampshire had an epic battle. New Hampshire was the better team, but a PP goal late in the game off a UNH defender's glove was the difference as BU wins 2-1. Boston is the only higher seed to make it to DC.

So here is the schedule for those heading to DC (see ya there!).

Boston U vs Vermont
Miami (OH) vs Bemidji State

I think there will be a lot of WCHA fans in attendance cheering for the Beavers, I will be one of them.

A little update on records by conf:

CHA: 2-0
HE: 5-2
AHA: 1-1
CCHA: 2-3
WCHA: 1-3
ECAC: 1-3

Well a week off from college hockey, but a good time to recap a few things from the Wisconsin Badger Men's season between now and the Frozen Four.
