Teflon Terriers
North Dakota beat Boston University in every discernible statistic except for the only one that matters: the score. And Terriers coach David Quinn couldn’t care less. “At the end of the day, good for you, if that’s what people want to think,” Quinn said in response to the game’s alleged one-sidedness. “There are ebbs and flows in a hockey game.” The ebbs started early and the flows ...

North Dakota Does Everything But Win
For all the talk of North Dakota having the crowd on its side, it took a lull in the action to turn things around. The end result did not ultimately go North Dakota's way, the game lost in heartbreaking fashion to Boston University in double overtime after it thought it had won in the first OT. There will be no back-to-back championships. But of the multitudes of things that will be ruminated over ...

Harvard Checks Another Box; One Win From Chicago
This is beginning to feel like a special season for Harvard. It’s also a season that seems historic for a number of reasons. Forward Tyler Moy fired the puck into the empty net with 1:49 left in the third. It rattled around the face of goal from post to post before settling inside the net. His goal put the Crimson up 3-0, tallying his second of the night, and sealing the deal in the process. Six ...

For Providence, Leaman Must be the Present and Future
At this point, it's just expected. When a job opens, a big one, Nate Leaman's name comes up. He's never said anything. There's no reason to suggest he wants a change. But it's always there. He's the kind of coach you can hire and sit back while the wins pile up. At least, that's what has happened at Providence since Leaman took over. It was the same at Union. A few years after Leaman takes over ...

NCAA Northeast Regional Notebook
Minnesota and Notre Dame are no strangers to Manchester. The Golden Gophers were here just two years ago, losing to Minnesota-Duluth in the first round. In 2011, Notre Dame advanced to the Frozen Four from what was at the time known as the Verizon Wireless Arena. "Like everyone else, we are excited to be here," said Minnesota coach Don Lucia. "It is a little bit familiar for us, being here two years ...

Northeast Regional Preview
Mass.-Lowell typically attracts as many as 6,000 fans per game at the Tsongas Center, located just about an hour from this weekend’s NCAA Northeast Regional in Manchester. UMass Lowell, which has led Hockey East in home attendance for the last two seasons, had the most fans (by far) at TD Garden last weekend and there was word this week that the River Hawks sold out of their ticket allotment for ...

Senators Owner Eugene Melnyk Calls Sidney Crosby 'A Whiner Beyond Belief'

Blackhawks' Darling could be NHL's next Talbot
By now, we know Cam Talbot of the Edmonton Oilers is not only a No. 1 goalie but the busiest goaltender in the National Hockey League. Before joining the Oilers, he was Henrik Lundqvist's back-up with the New York Rangers. Same goes for Martin Jones of the San Jose Sharks, who once served as backup to Jonathan Quick of the L...

Ryan Smyth 'blindsided' by hit playing senior hockey
Ryan Smyth, who was knocked out on a ripping, unsuspecting hit during an Alberta senior hockey league playoff game almost two weeks ago, is back on the ice, but whether No. 94 plays again this spring is very much in doubt.

Laying out 2017 Hart Trophy Cases for NHL's Top Candidates
With just over two weeks to go until the end of the 2016-17 NHL regular season, awards talk is heating up. Voting for regular-season awards will be completed before the playoffs begin, so time is running out for the top candidates to make their cases. The Hart Memorial Trophy "is an annual award given to the player judged to be the most valuable to his team,"

Commentary: Keeping Providence Home Was Right Call
The NCAA tournament starts Friday. In case you haven't heard, Providence, a No. 4 seed, gets to play its NCAA tournament opener in its hometown. If the Friars defeat No. 1 seed Harvard, they get to play in Providence for the right to advance to a second Frozen Four in three years. Last time around? You guessed it. The Friars advanced to the 2015 Frozen Four and won the whole damn thing after getting ...

Folkes Hero
In the stands at the Joe Louis Arena, Carl Folkes was almost frozen in place. Below him, double overtime was gliding by on the ice. Penn State’s season wasn’t on the line, but the Nittany Lions had a chance to win their first Big Ten trophy. And his son, Liam Folkes, had a chance to be the hero. But Liam wasn't supposed to be there that night. Actually, if you listened to the doctors, Liam and ...

NCAA Midwest Regional Preview
In 2014, New England Patriots head coach and now five-time Super Bowl winner Bill Belichick spent the majority of a now-infamous press conference deflecting questions by repeating the phrase, "on to Cincinnati." This week, for NCAA tournament top overall seed Denver — along with Big Ten champion Penn State, WCHA champion Michigan Tech, and 2014 national title winner Union — it's "on to Cincinnati" ...

WMU's Dries, Allison to Play in NCAA Opener
Western Michigan center Sheldon Dries and winger Wade Allison are both expected to play in the East Regional semifinal of the NCAA tournament against Air Force Friday afternoon. The Broncos were without the duo during last weekend's losses to both Minnesota-Duluth and Denver at the NCHC Frozen Faceoff at Target Center in Minneapolis. Dries said he would be in the lineup during Thursday's media session ...

Kunin Signs With Wild; Departs Wisconsin After 2 Years
Wisconsin forward Luke Kunin, who had 22 goals this season for the resurgent Badgers, has decided to give up his final two years of collegiate eligibility to sign with the Minnesota Wild. Kunin signed a three-year, entry-level contract starting with the 2017-18 season. He will report to the Iowa Wild of the AHL on an Amateur Tryout Agreement for the remainder of this season. Kunin, 19, had 38 points ...

Notre Dame Looking To Be Notre Dame Again
No matter the opponent, Jeff Jackson has reason to be confident ahead of last week's Hockey East semifinal. The Fighting Irish, who drew top-seeded Massachusetts-Lowell in the semis, entered the weekend with just one loss in their previous 10 games. Even facing a UMass-Lowell team they'd gone 2-8-2 against in 12 meetings since joining Hockey East, Jackson thought his team was ready. Not much he saw ...

NCAA West Regional Preview
It's being called the "Region of Doom." John LeClair and Eric Lindros might not be in it, but there are 13 players in the Regional that participated for the U.S. World Junior team at one point or another, including at least one for each team, plus 30 players who have been drafted by NHL teams. Throw in the fact that the games are being played in front of 6,000 mainly rabid North Dakota fans despite ...

Madsen Leads From the Back
When you talk about Harvard, the first thing that comes to mind is its offense. And for good reason. But with that kind of style, it can sometimes lead to good opportunities the other way for its opponent. That's when a goaltender needs to make a save. Standing in the shadow of the prolific offense that Harvard just so happens to have is Merrick Madsen, a junior goalie that is a sixth-round draft ...

NCAA East Regional Preview
The Providence Regional boasts two teams from the east (Harvard and Providence) and two from the west (Western Michigan and Air Force). The Dunkin Donuts Center acts as a bit of a home away from home for Providence, which could provide an advantage against the ECAC tournament champion, and top-seeded Crimson. In the other matchup, Atlantic Hockey tournament champion Air Force looks to turn the tides ...

'Extra Fire'
After scoring the final goal of North Dakota's 2015-16 season — a third-period goal that gave the Fighting Hawks a 5-1 lead in their eventual national title game win over Quinnipiac — and after scoring the lone goal in last Friday's streak-busting NCHC semifinal win over top-seeded Denver, perhaps the last place UND junior Austin Poganski thought he might find himself Saturday in the closing stages ...

Farewell to The Joe
Unless you’re mired in nostalgia, going to The Joe is a rocky experience. Trying to watch replays on the video board becomes an exercise in frustration, as three pairs of digital cubes have gone out on the south sideboard, creating three virtual pucks to confuse the viewers. It’s amusing, yet maddening. “We don’t want the video wall going out,” said Detroit’s rink maintenance icon Al ...

NHL Playoff Picture 2017: Latest Postseason Bracket, Predictions and More
The NHL season has reached the home stretch, and that means every game is vital for teams in playoff contention.
