The start of the REAL NCAA tournament started back on March 25th as teams from across the nation began to compete for a chance to go to the Frozen Four, held in Tampa, FL this year. The West Regional played at Xcel featured a great tilt between St. Cloud State and Ferris State, while Denver absolutely pummeled Boston University. The SCSU/FSU game was worth the price of admission alone, overall it was a great hockey game that Ferris State won 18 seconds into OT (5-4) after giving up 2 goals in the third allowing St. Cloud to tie it up at 4-4.
Boston vs. Denver was a snooze fest, Denver creamed BU 7-2 and all the action happened on the opposite end of where I was at. Denver vs. Ferris State was a really good matchup, however Denver took control in the third period and was able to punch their ticket to the Frozen Four with a 6-3 win.
I still have a post about the Blackhawks/Wild game that happened this past Tuesday. I have the San Jose Sharks next week along with the Calgary Flames again, and that will close out the NHL regular season so here's to hoping Minnesota will finish strong to make the playoffs.
