Friday, League Semifinals: Lowell needed triple overtime and an outstanding goaltending performance by Kevin Boyle to take down Providence 2-1. The game winner did not come without some controversy. CJ Smith directed the puck into the net with his skate. The play was originally called no goal and then after a lengthy review, was overturned… Northeastern topped BC with a 5-4 win to advance to just their second championship game in program history.
- For the second straight year, RIT beat Robert Morris in the Atlantic Hockey Conference Championship game, 7-4.
According to multiple reports that came out this afternoon, Notre Dame is expected to leave Hockey East in 2018 and join the Big10. The Irish came to Hockey East two years ago when the (now defunct) CCHA dissolved. According to Mike McMahon of College Hockey News, Notre Dame will owe Hockey East a $250,000 exit fee. There has been plenty of speculation already as to whether Hockey East will add another team to get back to an even 12 teams.
Apparently, Arizona State is also close to choosing a league. With ND going to the Big10, ASU would give them an 8 team league.
