Hockey East Tournament - Round 1 - Game 3
Massachusetts Minutemen 2 @ #4 Northeastern Huskies 3 OT
Northeastern wins best of three series 2-1
D John Wessbecker UMASS: 0-0-0, 1 SOG, Even, 2 PIM
John Tuckerman's second goal of the game came midway through the first OT period and sent the Huskies on to Round 2 and UMASS home. Its doubtfull that the Minutemen are Tourney bound so this may have been John Wessbeckers last collegiate game.

A quick update for anyone interested in upcoming prospect graduations...
Karri Ramo needs just 6 more decisions to graduate from prospect status according to our site's criteria.
Matt Smaby needs just 11 more games this season to graduate.
Noah Welch needs just 13 more games this season to graduate.
The Lightning have exactly 13 games remaining on their schedule. Bolt Prospects will issue its Final Rankings for the 2008-2009 season following the conclusion of all prospects' playoff seasons, and with prospects like Dustin Tokarski, James Wright, and Luca Cunti possibly poised to make some deep runs, it may be a while. Expect significant changes at the top of the list, though, with two of the only four prospects ever to hold the #1 spot (Stamkos and Downie being the other two) on our rankings likely to graduate by year's end. And then there's the playoffs...
It should be fun.
