NCAA Game Night: 3-3-12

Vermont Catamounts 0 @ No. 1 Boston College Eagles 4

F Matt Marshall, UVM: Did not play (injured)
Season totals: 2 GP, 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM

And that’s that. Vermont’s season ended with a lopsided loss to the nation’s top team. Marshall (pictured), a fifth round pick of the Bolts in 2007, will graduate this spring. Where his hockey career goes from here – if anywhere – is up in the air. The speedy winger known for his forechecking finishes his collegiate career with five goals and 14 points in 86 games. His career at Vermont was marred by injuries and frequent scratches. He was honored at senior night last weekend by the Catamounts, but was unable to play due to recovery from surgery.

Brown Bears 0 @ Quinnipiac Bobcats 3
ECAC First Round: Best of 3 series tied 1-1

F Matthew Peca, QU: 1-2-3, +1, 0 PIM, 8 SOG, *Third Star*
Season totals: 36 GP, 8-26-34, +2, 12 PIM

Friday night Brown came into Connecticut determined to show that just because they finished the season last in the conference didn’t mean they had to lie down in the playoffs. Peca admitted to the media that his team was flat and looked tired. He did his part Saturday to remedy that as he led the team with eight shots on goal and tied for the team lead with three points as QU tied the best of three series 1-1. The Bobcats outshot the Bears 42-16. Game 3 is Sunday. Peca has now factored in on every Quinnipiac goal for the last four games – 10 goals (1-9-10). According to the Quinnipiac Chronicle, Peca's 26 assists are the third most for a Quinnipiac freshman in program history, while his 34 points are good for fourth all-time.

Vermont will play its final game of the season Saturday against No.1 Boston College. Marshall, a senior, was expected back in the lineup at some point this season, but that doesn’t appear to be the case. He has played in only two games this year.

Mullin was third star both nights. Miami moved up to fourth in the CCHA standings and will get a bye in the first round of the playoffs next week.

Season totals: 35 GP, 1-9-10, +5, 45 PIM

Witkowski registered a point for the fourth time in five games and set a new career high for points in a season with 10. But the most impressive part of his night was helping his Broncos to a huge upset win in the barn the nation’s No.1 team calls home. The Bulldogs accepted their trophy for winning the CCHA on Saturday night. They have already clinched the top spot for the playoffs. WMU, who clinched a bye, finished the home-and-home series with FSU 1-0-1. The Broncos tied for second in the CCHA with Michigan.
