We already had a 5 OT game in the tournament, maybe we'll get lucky and have another one tonight?

Eh, go UMass I guess. It was my second choice and all for college.

Gotta root for the Huskies. They've had many great teams lately and always seem to choke in the tourney. I'd be happy to see them win.

(Also, I think my mind changed one of those UMD wins to one by SC. Same state & all....)

Joking aside, Aaron Bohlinger gives UMass the pre-dreadnought lead.  1-0 Minutemen.

Estranged is a beautiful song and criminally underrated, if it is even rated at all.

Missed the explanation - were they saying the play was onside b/c the Mass player had possession?

Dear ESPN:

Please don't have Buccigross call NHL games. Keep him in the studio because he sucks.

I'm still bitter when an Amherst representative tried to kill Lowell's hockey program saying the "flagship" shouldn't compete with it's lesser programs. At that point Amherst had more losing seasons than winning seasons in Hockey East. They've had some decent seasons the past couple years and finally won a hockey East championship this year. Even landed Cale Makar for two years.

So, yay for Hockey East showing again they're the best conference in the country, but fark Umass Amherst. fark their shiatty campus and their overinflated sense of importance in college hockey. May they go back to being Hockey East bottom feeders soon.

You know, if the Leafs somehow overcome innumerable curses and win the Stanley Cup this season, two of their most important players will be a guy from Michigan (Jack Campbell) and a guy from Arizona (Auston Matthews).

Better than BC or BU IMHO.

Is anyone else worried about ESPN getting coverage of the next NHL season?

Not gonna lie, I got a chubby when they played the old theme song earlier, but they are going to destroy the league again I think. I've enjoyed NBC's dedication, I think the NHL farked up bad.

As much as I don't want to see the Leafs win, the fact that their best player is a Mexican-American from a desert state that they moved the Jets to would be pretty beautiful irony.

I think it's necessary for the NHL to be on ESPN.  They're by far the biggest player in U.S. sports media, I think with how just the sheer size of their platform drives things in the U.S., it's important for the NHL to have some games with them.

But they can also judo-chop them from viability, just like they did before.

I will say that Barry Melrose must know where Disney keeps the dead hookers to keep his job with that network for so long, even after they moved the coverage of the league to below water polo on their website.

And that was the first time all game that I haven't walked back inside from smoking a cig and UMass didn't score.

Seriously.

Keep in mind that NBCSN is likely folding in the next year or two, so I think the NHL did well to ensure they're going to be on an extant platform.  That said, it does remain to be seen whether the ESPN deal goes well or poorly.  But I do think guaranteeing half the finals games are going to be on ABC is a positive sign.  At the very least, I think not doing an exclusive deal again (not putting all of their eggs in one basket) was a good call by the NHL.
