I don’t think anybody, from the hardcore college hockey fans to the ones just watching it for the first time, expected the results that came about on Thursday night. Especially the first semi-final game. At least in how lopsided it was. You know what’s hot? Having a hat trick. Here’s to you, Nathan Gerbe.
Boston College beat North Dakota for the third straight time (damn) 6-1. Maybe there should be a moratorium on these two teams playing in the semi-finals for now on, ok? Can’t they be bracketed on opposite sides?
And in the other semi Notre Dame beat Michigan. I’m not even a hockey fan but this pisses me off. Ah, the joys of rivalry. I actually watched about the last half of regulation and the overtime. Michigan fought their way back and I was genuinely excited when overtime started. But to be honest, it wasn’t that surprising to me that ND scored the last goal that mattered. But I’m a pessimist at heart so that could be it.
So Saturday night will be BC vs. ND. Usually bad things happen when Catholics fights. I guess whoever wins loves Jesus more.
