NCAA Midwest Regional Final

D/W Kirill Gotovets, COR: 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM, 0 SOG

Ferris State senior Jordie Johnson (undrafted) scored in the seventh minute of the third period to break a 1-1 tie and propel the Bulldogs to their first Frozen Four. Gotovets had the only assist on Cornell’s lone goal. He finishes the year with eight point in 24 games. More will be expected of the Belarusian next year as an upperclassman. Gotovets may not be completely done for the season as he could suit up for Belarus in the World Championships later this spring as he’s done the last two years.

Season totals: 40 GP, 2-11-13, +8, 66 PIM

WMU’s postseason run came to an end Saturday afternoon, falling 3-1 to top-seeded North Dakota. The Broncos scored to make the game 2-1 and appeared to get the tying goal, but it was ruled no-goal. The puck appeared to bounce in off a net-crashing forward while a Sioux player was sliding into the post and knocking the net off. It was ruled no goal and UND added an empty net goal late to give the game its final score. Witkowki and NCAA free agent partner Dan DeKeyser were on the ice in the last minute trying to get the game tied. Witkowski appeared to hesitate when deciding to pinch in at the blueline to keep the puck in, and when he finally did he was a little too late and lost a one-on-one battle along the wall. The UND player got around him and scored into an empty net. It’s a tough play for the junior alternate captain, who has been fantastic all year on the back end. It was reported this week that he will return to school for his senior season. He has a good chance to be named captain. Witkowski set a career high for points in a season and could breakout on offense next year. DeKeyser had an assist in the game and was strong throughout. There have been mixed signals as to whether the sophomore will leave school and turn pro. The Lightning are one of a few teams thought to be leaders for him. Detroit and Toronto are the others.

Note: With Gotovets and Witkowski seeing their seasons end on Saturday, it means no Lightning prospect will be playing in the Frozen Four taking place in Tampa. Brendan O'Donnell's Fighting Sioux could still make it, but O'Donnell is out for the season due to injury. A final review of Lightning NCAA prospects will be posted in the coming days.

Another upset. The Riverhawks skated out to a 3-0 lead entering the third period before Miami decided to play, outshooting UML 18-8 in the final frame while scoring three times. Miami even had a five minute power play to end regulation, but they couldn’t get the game winner. That was scored by UML’s Riley Wetmore (undrafted), 2:13 into overtime. UML will face Union in the East Region finals for the right to go to the Frozen Four in Tampa. Union knocked off Michigan State, 3-1. Mullin ends an outstanding freshman season with 11 goals and 26 points. He spent the majority of the year on the RedHawks’ top line and will be relied upon for his offense next season in Oxford.

In what was probably his final collegiate game, Alex Killorn scored his team’s only goal and led the Crimson with five shots on net, but Harvard lost to Union 3-1 in the ECAC Championship Game. It was Union’s first ECAC title. Any slim shot Harvard had at getting an invitation to the big dance went by the wayside when Union and Western Michigan both got automatic bids. Killorn came back to school for his senior year to do just this – have a strong offensive campaign and lead his team to new heights. Hopefully he holds his head high. The Killorn contract watch now begins, as he’s a lock to sign his name on the dotted line with the Lightning. It’s just a matter of when.

Fear the beard. Witkowski and Western Michigan won their first CCHA tournament title since 1986 as they held on to beat Michigan, 3-2. Witkowski was strong all night with his partner, free agent Dan DeKeyser. Witkowski’s dump-in and the hybrid icing rule led to the eventual game-winning goal, scored in the closing minutes of the second period. Witkowski, who came into the game with seven points in his last eight games, was beaten one-on-one for Michigan’s first goal, which came while WMU was on the power play, but was strong in his own zone as the Broncos killed off a five-minute major penalty that ended with three minutes to go. He was very poised and strong on the puck in his own end, and at one point in the final minute enabled a clear when he beat two Wolverines to a loose puck while he was on his knees after breaking up the previous play. During the broadcast, Fox Sports Detroit said WMU coach Andy Murray mentioned that all six WMU defensemen would be back next year. The announcers didn’t seem to put a ton of stock in the comment, but it’s the first indication that DeKeyser – and Witkowski – are staying in school. DeKeyser, who was named to the CCHA All-Tournament team, will be offered a contract from most every NHL team and Witkowski has played well enough to start a contract conversation among the Lightning brass. Time will tell, but right now Witkowski, his beard – which got a kiss from the Broncos backup goaltender during the celebration, and WMU will wait and see what damage they can do in the national tournament. They earned an automatic bid with the tournament championship. (Luke's photo from his Twitter feed, @LWitko28)

Killorn and Harvard continued their magical run, beating the favored Big Red 6-1 on Friday to earn a trip to the ECAC finals against top-seeded Union. Harvard scored the game’s first six goals, with Killorn getting numbers two and five. Cornell added a late goal. Lightning prospect Kirill Gotovets spent time at wing, which he has done a handful of times this year. Harvard has to beat Union on Saturday to get into the national tournament.

Witkowski logged a ton of minutes and for a moment or two had was credited with an important goal for WMU as the Broncos upset Miami to advance to the CCHA Finals against Michigan, who beat Cinderella Bowling Green in double overtime. Witkowski took a feed in the high slot while on the power play, skated a couple of strides, and fired a low wrist shot that found its way to the twine but it was later ruled to have hit the shaft of the stick of teammate Will Kessel (undrafted). Witkowski and defensive partner Dan DeKeyser, a free agent target of the Lightning, played nearly every key shift in the game for the Broncos and matched-up against Lightning prospect Jimmy Mullin’s high-powered line for much of the game. Mullin created a few scoring chances and had his name announced for an assist on Miami's first goal, but it was later corrected. Mullin was one of the few RedHawks who was generating chances. Mullin will continue his season in Saturday's Third Place Game, then on the road to the Frozen Four in Tampa as the RedHawks are considered a lock for an invitation. WMU is on the bubble, but can punch their ticket with a win over the Wolverines at Joe Louis Arena Saturday night.
