Recapping more hockey

Well, the college games didn't go as planned. I thought that North Dakota would be able to win over Boston College, but they had a goaltending breakdown (some of those were really bad), and failed to put up any points themselves. Boston College went up 4-0 early, and had the game more or less settled. Final score was 6-1, and it wasn't even as close as that.

The team I expected to get run over instead, put on a solid effort, and won the game in overtime. Even after coming from the last seed to make the frozen four, I still didn't have much confidence in Notre Dame. Then the Fighting Irish built up a solid 3-0 lead in the first period. When Michigan scored two quick goals at the start of the second it looked as if things were about to finally fall apart, but Notre Dame held on to enter overtime with the game tied at 4 a side. Then early in OT Notre Dame finally found the ability to score again and got themselves into the final. The championship game is on Saturday.

In the NHL most of the games went as planned, with Montreal beating Boston and Detroit beating Nashville. San Jose shutout Calgary in game two too even out the series. The Sharks outshot the Flames 43-21 in the game, and 27-3 in the second period. The Stars upset the Ducks, winning 4-0 with all of their goals coming on the powerplay. Marty Turco got yet another shutout, but that didn't help them too much last season...
