Lundin Named to All-Regional Team; Will Go To Frozen Four for Third Time

From Saturday...

Maine 4 - UMass 1
East Region Final

Mike Lundin and Maine will return to the Frozen Four for the fourth time in the last six years. The trip will be the third for Lundin, a senior who was one of four Black Bears named to the All East Regional Team. He also played in the 2006 and 2004 Frozen Fours. Neither Lundin or Lightning prospect John Wessbecker (UMass) found the scoresheet for their respective clubs in the regional championships. Maine scored their goals 4 on 4, on the power play, and an insurance goal on a 5 on 3. UMass also scored on the power play to cut the Black Bears' lead to 2-1, but could never get the equalizer.

On Sunday...

Boston College 4 - Miami 0
Northeast Region Final

BC defeated Dan Boyle's alma mater, Miami of Ohio, 4-0 on the back of Canucks first rounder Cory Schneider to earn a trip to the Frozen Four. Goaltender and Lightning prospect Joe Pearce serves as Schneider's backup.

Maine will face Michigan State, who punched their ticket to St. Louis on Saturday. North Dakota beat WCHA rival Minnesota 3-2 in overtime when Chris Porter (Blackhawks 9th rounder in 2003) scored in overtime on an innocent looking wraparound. Gophers goalie Jeff Frazee (NJ 2nd rounder in 2005) left his stick away from his body and Porter, who took over as UND captain when Matt Smaby left school, banked the puck off the stick and between Frazee's legs. UND will play Boston College for the second year in a row in the semi-finals. BC won last year 6-5.

The Silvertips now lead the series, which turns to Spokane on Tuesday. Crowley was also plus-1 in the game.

NHL Game Night 3/24: Senators at Lightning

That's not the response I expected tonight.

OTT-7
TB-2

Marc Denis allowed 5 goals on 23 points in the loss before being spelled by Karri Ramo who allowed 2 goals on 5 shots the rest of the way. Just a bad spot for the kid to get into. Dan Boyle had both Lightning goals and Vincent Lecavalier had a pair of assists. Vaclav Prospal and Martin St. Louis added individual helpers.

The Lightning squandered an opportunity to climb to even with the Thrashers with the loss after having watched Atlanta lose an afternoon game to Pittsburgh. With just six games left to go in the season, the Lightning remain two points back with one head-to-head matchup left in the finale of the regular season.

UMass 1 - Clarkson 0 (OT)
East Regional Semi-final

UMass continues its postseason heroics as they knocked off No. 1 seed Clarkson in overtime. John Wessbecker finished scoreless and even in the game while recording 4 shots on net.

Maine and UMass will now meet again in the East Regional final with the winner advancing to the Frozen Four. The two teams have met four times in the last month with UMass winning all four games. The Minutemen swept the final weekend series of the regular season then followed it up with a sweep of the Black Bears in the first round in the HEast tournament. The stakes are higher and Maine will have starting goalie Bishop back who missed both series due to injury.
