Day 1 - Minnesota-Duluth Blanks Union, Colorado College Shocks Boston College

Friday Scores:

East Regional:
Minnesota-Duluth 2
Union 0
Final

Two powerplay goals from Kyle Schmidt and Justin Fontaine and 32 saves from Kenny Reiter was the difference as Minnesota-Duluth beat the Union Dutchmen 2-0. The Bulldogs are now one win away from playing for a national championship in their home state.

Yale 2
Air Force 1
Final/OT

After seeing the likes of Denver, Michigan and Minnesota upset by the Atlantic Hockey champion in recent years, #1 overall seed Yale was able to avoid becoming another victim with a 2-1 overtime win. The Bulldogs, who two years earlier lost to Vermont in Bridgeport, survived thanks to Chad Ziegler stuffing home his own rebound 3:16 into the extra session.

West Regional:
Colorado College 8
Boston College 4
Final

The only true upset of the day, fourth seed Colorado College overcame a Jimmy Hayes goal nineteen seconds into the game and destroyed the defending national champions 8-4. Boston College had no answer for the Tigers as their top line combined for ten points and four goals and gave up two shorthanded goals. Colorado College now looks to dethrone another perennial contender in Michigan and advance once again to St. Paul for their first Frozen Four appearance since 2005.

Michigan 3
Nebraska-Omaha 2
Final/OT

With a little help from the Puck Gods and instant replay, the Wolverines were able to defeat their former CCHA rival in overtime after a review from the officials gave Kevin Lynch a game-winning goal and his second of the night. The Mavericks got out to a 2-0 lead with first-period goals by Rich Purslow and Alex Hudson but Michigan was able to come back and tie the game in the second. After a scoreless third, Nebraska-Omaha’s postseason hopes were dashed after officials looked into Lynch’s shot and overturned their non-call on the ice.
