Kukla's Korner Hockey

from David Albright of ESPN,
Boston University sealed its No. 1 overall status in college hockey with a 1-0 win over UMass-Lowell at the TD Banknorth Garden on Saturday night to capture the Hockey East championship. The Terriers’ win kept the River Hawks from making the NCAA tournament field and it also allowed Ohio State to make the field of 16 as the last at-large team. So it’s somehow fitting that the Buckeyes and BU will face each other in the first round of the national tournament.
When the pairings for the 2009 NCAA men’s hockey tournament were announced on ESPN2 Sunday morning, the No. 1 seeds went to—in order—Boston University (Northeast), Notre Dame (Midwest), Denver (West) and Michigan (East).
