Frozen Four Set. Casey Disappointed.
It's a sad day for hockey. Not for North Dakota fans, I suppose ... but I don't fit into that category. Perhaps UMN, as the #1 seed was a bit too cocky. Maybe they were just outplayed and out worked. Regardless, Chris Porter jammed a puck into the net to give the Fighting Sioux an overtime win, and sending North Dakota to the show, where they'll face Boston College (who shutout Miami 4-0 to advance). This means that none of the top 4 seeds are in the Frozen Four. As for the national polls, the top team to make it is BC (ranked #4 at the end of the season). In fact, the Frozen Four will see the nationally ranked #6 team (UND) facing #4, and #14 (Maine) against #10 (Michigan State). Yawn.
