Greetings from Worcester, Mass. We're still in the third period of the day's first game, but this one's been over since the game's first few minutes. Boston College leads Denver 6-1.
Johnny Gaudreau, the easy pick for the Hobey Baker Award, has six points in this game. 3G, 3A. Amazing player. Fun to watch. If MSU advances to tomorrow, they'll have their hands full with him.
This one's over. About 55 minutes until Minnesota State and UMass Lowell play.
15 minutes until the puck drops.
MSU fans? A couple. Check out the story in the link below.
MSU starters: Huggins, Palmquist, Stern, Stepan, McInnis, Blueger
Nice cheering section for Johnny McInnis. They made some noise amid the Lowell crowd, which is boisterous
UML starters: Kapla Folin, Wilson, Gambardella, Arnold, Hellebuyck
Crowd reminds me of last week in Grand Rapids when it was almost all Ferris State fans.Few more people here though.
Gervais robbed by Hellebuyck! Wow.
First penalty of the day boas against MSU. Knowles for hooking.
Gervais stopped on a short-handed rush. Took a quick shot with a D bearing down. Hellebuyck no rebound.
Great save by Huggins?!?! Or was it blocked. Either way, great scoring chance for Lowell.
Fallon puts one off the crossbar!
Good 4th line shift for the Mavs after the penalty
First media timeout with 13:56 to go. Shots are 5-4 for MSU. Good action so far.
Ferris State is up 1-0 against North Dakota in the Midwest Regional final
Haven't seen the refs posted. Hopefully, I'll get that between periods.
Good energy so far by the Mavs. Both teams, actually.
Hellebuyck is 6-foot-4 and moves well. Just stood up to catch a puck. Controlling the game from that position is so important.
Bad turnover by Lehrke in front of Huggins. Nearly a disaster.
North Dakota has tied things up with Ferris
Gophers are up 5-2 against Robert Morris. St. Cloud State and Notre Dame play in the second game in St. Paul.
MSU hasn't scored a power play goal in awhile. 0 for 7 last weekend at the Final Five.
Oh, boy. Short-handed goal for Lowell. Lehrke turned it over at the blue line, and Pendenza went in alone. Great move, 5-hole.
