UMass hasn't even been over .500 in the better part of a decade. Makar might be good but that's asking a hell of a lot for them to suddenly make the national tournament

Mario Ferraro (Sharks second rounder) is really good too and their top five scorers + goalie were freshmen! This is the year!

Umass is gonna be top 5 if they sweep this Providence series loool

Cale Makar is insanely Hobey Baker level good and they're getting good goaltending. I think they'll be a tournament team even if they slow down a bit. The HE looks bad this year and they should be able to rack up some wins there.

Umass swept Providence but they got outshot 31-13. Still pretty cool!

I think they'll probably split with Quinnipiac here to end the streak but yeah it's crazy.

lol talk about a crystal ball, nice call

What's pretty cool is that they looked like the better team both games (whereas vs Providence they kinda rode goaltending a bit). They looked really good in this series, just couldn't score until that last third period.

They sold out the Mullins Center

Ehhh the teams that go to the ACHA tournament are still going to be the best teams unless the tournament has dropped in quality a ton since I played. The top teams almost always go. The teams that are folding in the ACHA are generally bad to begin with.

This is more true as you go up in division (ACHA D1 is fairly serious), but if you look at the past tournaments for ACHA D3 even, it's still the best teams. Like Georgia Tech went from the South last year and they were 18-4.

The UMass game is on ESPN2, that's pretty cool. I'd like to try and find a stream of the AIC game too. I hope they keep it interesting. They were 0-6 outside of the AH this year but they did face all tournament teams.

Ah yes the sanctity of the one game elimination hockey tournament. I'd rather see some weird team from the AH in then another at large team. Air Force eliminating WM and SCSU was great.

If anything they should add a few teams and do a few playins to give the top seeds an actual advantage.

holy gently caress AIC just scored as time expired in the 1st, won't count unfortunately

They hit two posts that period, too. I think ultimately SCSU's speed is gonna wear them down as this goes along but if they can get one more they might be able to grind out a 2-1 or something or get it to OT. There's no way St. Cloud can play as bad as they did that period the whole game, right?

lmao 2-0

e: St. Cloud just took a timeout they're so rattled with the whole crowd doing an A-I-C chant
