The Playoffs Begin!

There is one week of regular season games left for teams in the NCHC and two weeks for Big 10 Teams. The Atlantic Conference, ECAC, Hockey East, and WCHA all begin their conference championship playoffs on Friday; it's an exciting time.

With two weeks remaining in the Big10, Wisconsin continues to challenge Minnesota for first place with the teams splitting this weekend. Penn State and Ohio State continue to battle for the number three spot. Michigan and Michigan State are too far out to challange for fourth place.

In the Atlantic conference, Canisius finished first over Air Force and is joined by Army West Point, Holy Cross, and Robert Morris as the five teams earning byes next week. The other six teams will begin their best of three series on Friday to try and extend their seasons.

In the ECAC, Harvard finished first and we believe the Crimson have a good shot at representing the league in the Frozen Four in Chicago. But before that, eight ECAC teams will play this weekend to have a chance to play either St. Lawrence, Cornell, Union, or Harvard in two weeks for the conference title.

Notre Dame continues to make a late season surge in Hockey East and earned a first round bye along with Boston College, Boston University, and Lowell. Historically, teams that are peaking at this point in the season have a good shot at making the Frozen Four. Keep an eye on Providence too, but they will need to get by UMass Amherst next weekend.

Speaking of teams that are peaking and have a solid chance to play for the National title in Chicago, Denver looks very solid. There is one more week of regular season NCHC play so we won't know the complete playoff picture until late Saturday. The real battle though is for 4th. place. Denver, Duluth, and Western Michigan are secure in the top three spots.

Bemidji remains securely in first place in the WCHA but there are no byes in the WCHA; eight teams will play next weekend to stay in the hunt. Alabama and Alaska Anchorage are done for the season.
