Check out this breakdown of Minnesota’s struggles in its Frozen Four semifinal loss to Boston College on Thursday night and the Gophers’ sloppy play on the big stage. Here is a link to the video interviews done by USCHO.

Union lost its semifinal and its leading scorer in a span of eight hours. Tough night for the Dutchmen fans. Here are the Union beat writer’s articles.

Former Tiger Ryan Lowery was sent down to ECHL Stockton on Thursday to play for the Thunder during the playoffs. CC fans can see him in action against Aaron Slattengren starting at 7:05 p.m. tonight at the Budweiser Events Center.

UND assistant Cary Eades confirmed his interest in the MSU Mankato job. He would be the odds-on favorite, most prognosticators say.

Minnesota Duluth’s Jack Connolly won the the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award. First-team All-Americans were Connolly, Ferris State defenseman Chad Billins, Merrimack forward Ryan Flanigan, Cornell defenseman Keir Ross and Air Force forward Paul Weisgarber.

The second team is Ohio State defenseman Sean Duddy, Alaska goaltender Scott Greenham, Notre Dame defenseman Sean Lorenz, Brown forward Jack Maclellan and Miami goaltender Cody Reichard.

WCHA bloggers are confident that Connolly will win the school’s  fifth Hobey Baker Award later today. He is certainly deserving.
