Vermont Advances in NCAA Hockey Tournament

Vermont, behind Rob Madore’s 25 saves and four different scorers, defeated Yale in Bridgeport, CT in the first round of the East Regional 4-1.  Madore, like BU’s Kieran Millan, is a freshman trying to repeat the feat that BC’s John Muse did last year and win the Championship.  Peter Lenes, offensive leader Viktor Stalberg, Colin Vock, and Corey Carlson provided the offense for the green and gold. 

The Catamounts were seeded third among the region’s four teams and the upset of the second seeded Bulldogs was one of three on the day in the tournament.  They will face Air Force later Saturday, a four seed who upended the East’s top seed Michigan 2-0.

The West’s top seed also fell as Miami downed Denver 4-2.  The RedHawks are perhaps the happiest team that BC did not make the tournament as the Eagles eliminated them in each of the previous three seasons.  The lone favorite to survive was University of Minnesota-Duluth, which escaped with a victory over Princeton in the game of the day.  Duluth scored two goals in the final minute, including the tying goal with 0.8 ticks remaining, before winning the game in overtime.

The Northeast Region kicks off Saturday as well, featuring top seeded BU facing off with Ohio State and second seed North Dakota taking on third seed New Hampshire.  These games will take place in Manchester, NH with the winners facing off on Sunday.  In the Midwest, two seed Northeastern faces a three in Cornell and top seed Notre Dame meets Bemidji State University. 

All four Hockey East teams in the tournament will be in action and hopefully can move on and represent the nation’s strongest conference!
