Minnesota-Duluth's quest for back-to-back championships will go through the No. 1-seeded Boston College Eagles on Sunday in the Northeast region's deciding game. For the winner, a trip to the Frozen Four in Tampa Bay awaits. For the loser, an offseason of unanswered questions looms on the horizon.
With many key players, including goaltender Kenny Reiter, back from last year's title team, there's no reason to believe that Minnesota-Duluth isn't once again capable of reigning supreme over college hockey. To reach the field of eight, Minnesota-Duluth took care of Maine 5-2 on Saturday.
The top seed in the tournament, Boston College enters tonight's game with heavy expectations of its own. The Eagles posted the only shutout of the first round in a 2-0 win over Air Force in their opening game, and goalie Parker Milner has been playing at an extremely high level and remains one of the best stoppers in the country.
Location: DCU Center in Worcester, Massachusetts
Game Time: March 25, 8:00 p.m. EST
