Go Black Bears

I'll be away for Easter weekend, so no posting tomorrow. I figured I'd leave you with a reminder that there are other things in the world in addition to politics.
The Black Bears return to the NCAA Tournament for the seventh straight season when they go out west to Minneapolis to face Minnesota in the first round. Maine took regular season champion Boston College to two overtimes in the Hockey East Semifinals before falling 2-1 last Friday, while the Golden Gophers lost 4-2 to North Dakota in the WCHA third place game on Saturday. Maine is currently 20-12-7 on the season (13-6-5 in Hockey East, fourth) and are ranked twelfth in both the USAToday/USA Hockey Magazine and the USCHO/CSTV polls. Minnesota has a 26-14-1 overall record (17-10-1 in WCHA, third). The Golden Gophers are currently ranked seventh in the USAToday/USA Hockey Magazine and the USCHO/CSTV polls.

[Update]: I guess there's always next year.
