Or "Cinderella" if you would. D'oh! Overall, Inside College Hockey is a fantastic reference for, uh, college hockey.

Any team that beats North Dakota repeatedly is fine with me, even if they did knock out the Gophers this season. Hooray Eagles!

If only the Miami Redhawks could have that minute and a half back in the quarterfinals! Congratulations to BC, they are a hell of a program with a great tradition.

It was disappointing to have Michigan's season end with a goaltending meltdown by a player whose goaltending was the story of the season. Especially since it concluded with a loss to the Fighting Irish. Congratulations to Boston College, they had a great season.

Once they tore up North Dakota, I was thinking that Jerry York had the Eagles playing at the top of their game when it counted. I'm sure they were really pumped for Notre Dame, since there is a huge rivalry between the 2 schools. I'm no BC fan (Northeastern U Husky all the way), but they really deserve their success this year.

Tahoemoj - great showing by Miami in the regionals. BC was taken to its limit, for sure. But how ya like my prediction NOW? Jerry York is all class, Nathan Gerbe is unbelievable in the clutch, and John Muse has icewater running through its veins. What an incredible season to take it for us BC fans. CONGRATS.

I still don't think you have a clue what you're talking about ; )

You have to excuse my grammatically-flawed prior post. I am on painkillers a couple of days after achilles tendon reconstruction surgery. But the title surely has made things feel better in a hurry!

Notre Dame made some really good teams look really bad, including my UNH wildcats as well as the school I transferred from, Michigan. Congrats to both teams for knocking off some serious competition, and congrats to Boston College for winning it all! They really turned it up late in the season.

BC: Thank you for beating the ND. Any team that beats ND in any sport is okay with me.
