Michigan losing last night to Penn State is just hilarious.

tom servo bit me: Michigan losing last night to Penn State is just hilarious.


Well, it's the third time this year, so it's not terribly surprising.  One of them was a 4-0 shutout even.

That was as flukey as a goal can get. I feel for the goalie.

Umass Lowell up 2-0 over Notre Dame in the Hockey East semi-finals in Boston.

There are a lot of teams not playing today that are praying there are no upsets...Michigan losing yesterday may have taken them right out of the NCAA Tournament.

Having both St. Cloud and UMD not make it to Minneapolis can't be good for ticket sales although the North Dakota fans will show up for sure.  Had the Sioux lost on Sunday there might be 100 people there about 40 of which would be wearing skates.

I appreciate your support. The better Lowell does, the better chance Northeastern has of making the NCAA tournament.

The Pairwise Rankings often involve rooting for teams you hate or rooting for random teams to boost your chances or seeding.

NU doesn't need to make the tourney in all honesty. They've been mediocre for so long it's almost forgettable.

Hell I played there and forgot how mediocre we were.

Who are the announcers on the NBCSN feed? Tom Caron is murdering this game on NESN. Toot Cahoon during intermission makes me mute the television.

Watching it at a bar, and I have it on one of the two 70" TVs, just to piss off the tree-hockey momos.

It's on mute so I have no idea, but the backlash of having it on during "March Moronics" is quite hilarious.

I've pulled that off before at my old office job.  People don't like it when you tell that when their alma mater actually makes any sort of playoff games we can all watch that.

Western Michigan just scored again...that was an ugly goal.  A DU player knocked it in on accident off of his skates after the initial save.  And a minute later DU ties it up with 3.4 seconds left in the 2nd...
 
2014-03-21 07:03:34 PM  
This may be the best I have seen Lowell play all year. Granted, ND isn't putting up too much of a struggle, they look good.

orangehat: There are a lot of teams not playing today that are praying there are no upsets...Michigan losing yesterday may have taken them right out of the NCAA Tournament


Yeah, the big things Michigan needs to root for are Quinnipiac over Colgate, Providence over UNH, and either NoDak wins the NCHC (so no bid thief) or loses both today and the consolation (to KO them from an at-large spot).  And of course, there's probably other weird machinations that could swing comparisons in there that would keep Michigan out.

Frankly, they deserve it.  They lost 3 times to a glorified club team.
 
2014-03-21 07:18:30 PM  
So what has to happen for Northeastern to get in?

Just as an aside.

New Hampshire and Providence.

If the basketball game keeps sucking, I might watch the Skating Friars, haven't in a very, very long time.

Faceoff deep in Denver's zone, 7 seconds left with a 1 goal lead...I'm nervous.

They'd need North Dakota, Minnesota or Wisconsin, Union or Quinnipiac, Ferris State or Minnesota State-Mankato, and UMass-Lowell or Providence to win their conference tournaments and hope that UNH loses this upcoming game.  No matter what the 15th spot is the cutoff since the 16th will go to whoever wins the Atlantic Hockey tournament but the fact that Providence has a chance to win 2 more games or Lowell has a chance to win one more against a top 15/20 team may be enough of a difference to push them into the 15th spot.  They are 16th right this second (not factoring in the DU/WMU result that just went final).  It benefits them that Western Michigan didn't win since that may have put WMU past them in the pairwise.
 
2014-03-21 07:50:15 PM  
The difference as of right now between Michigan in the 15 spot and Northeastern in the 16th spot is .0005 in the RPI which could change depending on the results of the other games since they have a Quality Wins Bonus that factors in any win versus the 20 top teams in the RPI so the higher the opponents they beat, the better off they are.

What he said. It boils down to they need some help. And even then, the "pairwise ranking" as shown on various websites is always an approximation. The selection committee can go off the rails and do whatever the hell they feel like.

The analyst on NESN just now was saying that they have something like a 17% chance of getting in.  It kinda sounds like they've got a zero if UNH pulls off the upset tournament championship.  Which GOD HELP ME I don't want.

The leadup to the PC game is putting the Super Bowl to shame.  Seriously, I feel like it's been about ten hours that I've been watching it now.

Atlantic Hockey Semifinal #1: Canisius def. Mercyhurst
Atlantic Hockey Semifinal #2: Robert Morris def. Niagara
Atlantic Hockey Championship: Robert Morris def. Canisius
Big Ten Semifinal #1: Ohio State def. Minnesota
Big Ten Championship: Wisconsin def. Ohio State
ECAC Semifinal #2: Quinnipiac def. Colgate
ECAC Championship: Quinnipiac def. Union
Hockey East Semifinal #2: Providence def. New Hampshire
Hockey East Championship: Mass.-Lowell def. Providence
NCHC Semifinal #1: North Dakota def. Miami
NCHC Semifinal #2: Denver def. Western Michigan
NCHC Championship: North Dakota def. Denver
NCHC Consolation: Western Michigan def. Miami
WCHA Semifinal #1: Ferris State def. Alaska-Anchorage
WCHA Championship: Minnesota State def. Ferris State

This would get them in as the very last team.

These two have already happened and the NCHC 3rd place game in the previous example seemed to make no difference as far as Northeastern was concerned.  I'm sure there are other ways, this was the first one I ran across.

Alaska-Anchorage us suddenly up 4-2 on Ferris State...that could have an interesting impact on the pairwise if they're able to win this.
 
2014-03-21 08:40:22 PM  
Quinnipiac is up 1-0 on Colgate, they just scored a second ago...here are the other scores in case anyone is checking this on their phone and doesn't want to use the main page:

UNH/Providence scoreless - 12:19 1st
Ferris State/UAA - 4 to 4 - 4:31 2nd
OSU 1 Minnesota 0 - end of 1st
Miami/North Dakota will be starting any minute
Have no idea about the Atlantic Hockey semifinal since the page isn't showing any live updates
 
2014-03-21 08:54:38 PM  
No changes in score since my last post but OSU & Minnesota are about to start the 2nd.  North Dakota seems to be dominating play so far but has no goals to show for it.
 
2014-03-21 08:59:11 PM  
UND doesn't clear and Miami scores on the PP. 1-0.
 
2014-03-21 08:59:32 PM  
Miami hit a post from 5-10 away, UND couldn't clear it and then Miami put it in.  The Miami played took the shot and then got laid out by his own guy.  1-0 Miami; 8:36 left in the first.
