We all knew the B10 Conference was coming, I'm a little surprised they are sticking to only B10 teams, but I think that helps to maintain the rivalry games. I am happy that a lot more games will likely be available in HD now.

I'm a fan of the Colorado schools, especially CC and Air Force. Hope they represent in the tourney.

Gonna be indisposed Friday and Saturday night (see: hammered), but hopefully I'll be able to watch at least one of the Sunday games.

My official pre-tourney pick is BC.

DU is an excellent team, though I think their draw was a little rough.

All the games that aren't live on ESPNU have been picked up by regional carriers - UND/RPI and UM/UNO by MASN (640 on DirecTV), Merrimack/ND by Comcast NE (630), and DU/WMU by Altitude 2 (682).

Pretty sad crowd in CT for this first game, I don't know much about Union, but they must not exactly have a big fan base. Nice job by UMD to get the lead after being shorthanded for so long.

Nice win for UMD. Their goalie made some big saves when it was 1-0 to keep the lead.

Cool....Melrose on the ESPN call. Will check out this 3rd period with the bad hoops games.

I'm impressed that an Ivy and a service academy can get high quality hockey players.

Wow can't believe they gave Michigan the OT win on that unclear goal
