College Hockey Update:  UMass-Lowell dominated Cornell from the outset today in the opening game in the Northeast Region in Manchester, NH.  Ryan Dmowski put Lowell on the board seven minutes into the first.  In the second it was Ryan Lohin at the six minute point, and then C. J. Smith with four minutes left in the frame, and Lowell was up 3-0 going into the third.  And in the third another goal by Ryan Lohin  fifteen minutes into the period was followed by a Connor Wilson goal with only two minutes left to give UMass-Lowell the very one-sided 5-0 win over Cornell, as they advanced to play the winner of today’s late game between Minnesota and Notre Dame, tomorrow at 12:30PM Pacific Time on ESPNU.

The outcome of this game is not an upset in our pool as 28 out of 46 participants picked Lowell to win, while 18 picked Cornell.

Denver advanced to play the winner of the late game today between Union College and Pennsylvania State University, tomorrow at 3:00PM on ESPNU.

There’s no other way to put it, Denver really pounced on Michigan Tech in the opening game of the Midwest Region in Cincinnati, OH, today.  In the first period, two goals by Colin Staub, a goal by Emil Romig, and a goal by Will Butcher, all unanswered, put Denver up 4-0 going into the second.  A second period goal by Tyson McClellan made it 5-0 Denver, and the game was only 26 minutes old.  Two late second period Michigan Tech goals closed the lead to 5-2.  In the third there was very little action by either Denver or Michigan Tech, with a total of only eleven shots in the period, and Denver cruised to its 5-2 win.  Denver advanced to play the winner of today’s late game between Union College and Pennsylvania State University, tomorrow at 3:00PM Pacific Time on ESPNU.

The outcome of this game is not remotely an upset, as 44 of 46 participants picked Denver to win while only two picked Michigan Tech.

That’s all for now.  Stay tuned, and go Terriers!
