Lighting The Lamp


Union 5, Princeton 0: Union won the regular season championship for the first time in their ECAC history last night as Keith Kincaid stopped all 29 Princeton shots and Daniel Carr scored his 19th and 20th goals of the year.

Western Michigan 2, Notre Dame 0: A 35 save shutout by Jerry Kuhn and goals by Ian Slater and Trevor Elias secured a 4th place finish for Western Michigan and kept Notre Dame from winning the CCHA title.

Michigan 5, Northern Michigan 0: Carl Hagelin scored his 16th and 17th as Michigan won their 11th CCHA championship and their first since the 2007-08 season.

Boston College 2, UMass 1: BC got goals from Barry Almeida and Pat Mullane and 24 saves from John Muse to pull two close wins from a plucky UMass team. Paul Dainton had 36 saves in the loss.

New Hampshire 6, Northeastern 3: Paul Thompson had his 25th and 26th goals of the year and UNH stayed one point ahead of BC in the standings. The two face each other next weekend for the regular season title, with UNH needing just one win (or two ties) to repeat as champs.

Denver 4, Nebraska-Omaha 2: John Faulkner gave up 3 goals on 10 shots and had to get pulled in this one as Omaha lost a chance to climb within a point of North Dakota. Jason Zucker had his 19th and Drew Shore his 21st in the win.

North Dakota 5, Bemidji State 2: It was an otherworldly effort by the Sioux defense, who allowed just 15 Bemidji shots, including just 2 in the first period. Matt Frattin had his 25th and 26th goals of the year, and Jason Gregoire also had a multigoal effort, potting numbers 15 and 16. The Omaha loss means that with a win tomorrow the Sioux can clinch a share of the WCHA regular season title and the #1 seed in the WCHA playoffs.
