Red Hawks and Eagles punch their tickets to Detroit

Finally, a day in which there were no upsets but still drama-packed. Number one ranked and the tournament's overall number one seed Miami Red Hawks beat Michigan 3-2 in double overtime.There were many chances for both teams to end this game. Michigan had a goal called back after the ref said that he blew the play dead before the puck was in the back of the net. Michigan's Matt Rust hit the cross bar with about 12 minutes left in the first overtime. Miami's net minder, Conner Knapp, shut out Michigan from the second frame on, recording 55 saves. Finally, in the start of the second overtime, the Red Hawk's Alden Hirschfeld potted the game winner, beating goaltender Shawn Hunwick blocker side.

Back in Worcester, Boston College and Yale played one of the crazier games in NCAA tournament history. In total, 16 goals where scored between the two schools, including seven in the second period alone. At one point in the second, the Eagles lead the Bulldogs 6-2. Yale came back and before the end of the second had managed to cut the BC lead to 6-4. BC would again take control of the start of the third. They would jump the score all the way up 9-4 only to have the pesky Bulldogs come back and make it 9-7, the final score.

Miami(OH) and Boston College will tangle in the national semi finals in Detroit, April 8th.
