    Unfortunately, I won't have time today to get the writeup done, so here is how the remaining games will be played...

    Thursday, September 25th: No writeups, just simulated scores...
    #12 1968-1969 Cornell vs. #21 2010-2011 North Dakota
    #10 1997-1998 Michigan State vs. #42 2005-2006 Wisconsin

    Tuesday, September 30th: No writeups, just simulated scores...
    #7 1976-1977 Wisconsin vs. #26 1994-1995 Boston University
    #6 2008-2009 Boston University vs. #38 2002-2003 Colorado College

    Saturday, October 11th: Period updates with full writeup at conclusion of game
    #5 1990-1991 Northern Michigan vs. #28 2004-2005 Colorado College
    #50 1982-1983 Minnesota vs. #47 1998-1999 New Hampshire

    Thursday, October 16th: Period updates with full writeup at conclusion of game
    #4 1986-1987 North Dakota vs. #36 1989-1990 Wisconsin
    #13 2004-2005 Denver vs. #20 2000-2001 Boston College

    Ultimately, the same games will receive the same treatment (i.e. games labeled for full writeup are still going to have a full writeup and games labeled for simulation are still going to be simulated).

    But, as the saying goes, if ifs and butts were candy and nuts...we'd all have diabetes.
    Considering that '89 final was played in St Paul - it makes Harvard's victory even more impressive.

    I have no complaints about the interval between games and rounds. The players are much older now, they can use the rest.

    #3 1960-1961 Denver Pioneers vs. #35 1988-1989 Harvard Crimson
    West Regional - Round of 32
    Pepsi Center - Denver, CO

    It's an early start in Denver today, as the puck is set to drop at Noon (Eastern). Looks like we have a Hockey East crew working the game as well.

    The crowd has piled into the Pepsi Center, and they nearly blew the lid off this place when Patsy Cline and Roy Orbison came out to sing the National Anthem. It was a beautiful performance, but now we're ready for some hockey. Puck is about to drop, and I'll be back after the first period to give an update.

    FIRST PERIOD:
    Plenty of up and down action as these two squads are fighting for supremacy in the Mile High City. Denver struck first about midway through on a powerplay goal by Jerry Walker, his sixth of this tournament. The lead was short lived as Harvard came back with a goal by C.J. Young to knot the proceedings at 1-1. That is where we are after 20 minutes of play. Harvard outshooting Denver 11-10 in the first.

    SECOND PERIOD:
    What a dominating performance by the Pioneers. Denver jumped out early in the second with a Marshall Johnston goal just over a minute in. The Pioneers continued their strong play, and about midway through the game Marty Howe lit the lamp for DU to give them a 3-1 lead. They wouldn't stop there as Bill Masterton converted an opportunity late in the second period, and after forty minutes of play, Denver is up 4-1. DU outshot Harvard 14-7 in the period, and are now outshooting the Crimson 24-18 through two periods of play. I'll be back after the third to give the full recap!

    THIRD PERIOD:
    What a finish! Harvard stormed back with two quick goals early and tried desperately for the equalizer. Would they get it? Click on the link below to find out...

    Also playing today:
    #51 1998-1999 North Dakota vs. #19 1995-1996 Michigan
    - The Sioux and Wolverines are knotted up at 1 each midway through the second period. Both sides are flying up and down the ice looking for the go ahead goal!
    - Michigan took a brief lead early in the third, but North Dakota rallied to tie the game at 2 apiece. That is where the score stood at the end of regulation, so we're headed to OT!
    - North Dakota nearly advances early in the second period of OT, but Marty Turco absolutely robs Jay Panzer, who was in on a clean break. What a game!
    - Michigan's Brendan Morrison ends this one early in the third extra session to send the Wolverines on to the Sweet 16.

    Thanks, FS23. The simulator gives more info than I had thought. I guess it would be hard to find out what line combos were used especially for older teams, although which wing players were usually on is often known.

    Thanks for posting that.

    Just curious how you decided who is on the ice together. John Carter and George Servinis both played the same wing and would rarely be on the ice together except on power plays when Carter was on the point.
    In the first goal, RPI had just finished a powerplay I believe. That being said, the simulator doesn't really factor in line combinations when it spits out the data. For example, I'll get something along the lines of:

    Play 90: Shot on Goal
    Result - Goal - Rensselaer (4)
    Scorer - Servinis
    Assists - Carter, Oates
    On Ice - Hammond, Friday, Puppa

    I then have to take that and put it in the form of a narrative. For example if I have the following:

    Play 19: Shot Attempt
    Result - Wide - Rensselaer (2)
    Shooter - Sadeghpour
    On Ice - Mansi, Butryn, Robinson, Prendergast, Puppa
    On Ice - Gryp, Dolloff, Thornton, Brown, Jordan, Brady

    I could turn that into - Sadeghpour hits the post! Just past the midway point in the first period, Robinson makes a tremendous play along his own blueline, crushing Gryp as he tried to enter the Engineer zone. Prendergast gathered the puck behind his own net and found Butryn along the near boards who skated the puck into the Terrier zone. Butryn then found Sadeghpour flying along the far boards and hit him with a beautiful tape to tape pass. Sadeghpour lifted a wrister that beat Brady glove side, but rang off the post and flew wide.

    Or, I could just ignore it and go to the next data point that I have.

    Hopefully that makes a bit more sense.

    #8 1984-1985 Rensselaer Engineers vs. #25 1970-1971 Boston University Terriers
    Round of 32 - Northeast Regional
    Madison Square Garden - New York, NY (where else would it be today!)

    Absolutely tremendous atmosphere at the Garden for this September 11th showdown. The crowd is full of red and white and they are trying to keep their eyes dry after one of the most beautiful performances of the national anthem I have ever seen. The crowd went nuts as Madonna came out to sing the Star Spangled Banner, and the Material Girl went patriotic as she had the entire crowd sing the anthem with her. Nothing like 18,000+ people belting out the National Anthem...truly a tearjerker of a moment and one that this tournament will be remembered for.

    Puck is just about to drop. I'll be back after the first twenty are in the books to provide a short recap.

    FIRST PERIOD:
    Through twenty minutes we're all knotted up at 1-1. RPI scored first when John Carter scored on a rebound about midway through. RPI nearly scored again, but Bob DiPronio's wrister was stopped by Dan Brady. It looked like RPI would have the one goal edge after twenty minutes, but BU's Toot Cahoon tipped in a shot from the blue line. It has been a pretty even game with RPI having the slight edge in chances here early. Shots are 11-7 Engineers after one. I'll be back after the second to give another update!

    SECOND PERIOD:
    Another great period of action, as both sides are doing their best to take control. Each team had powerplay chances, but were unable to convert. Rensselaer finally got the edge when John Carter found George Servinis in the slot. Servinis ripped a wrister five hole that Brady couldn't stop and the Engineers took a 2-1 lead with under 5 to go. However, with just 11 seconds to play in the middle stanza, the Terriers struck back, this time Bob Gryp made a tremendous individual effort in the offensive zone and scored on a wraparound after winning a puck battle behind the net. Through forty minutes of play, we're all square at 2 apiece.

    THIRD PERIOD:

    What a tremendous finish to this one. The score remained all knotted at 2 apiece midway through the final stanza, but a flurry of goals advanced one of these teams...which one?

    OTHER ACTION: 1961-1962 Michigan Tech Huskies vs. 2011-2012 Boston College Eagles

    Reports coming in from the other Northeast Regional Round of 32 matchup left. BC and Michigan Tech are tied at 3-3 through forty minutes.

    update - Michigan Tech has scored early in the third to take a 4-3 lead. 16:45 left to go.

    update - Michigan Tech holds on to defeat Boston College 5-4. The Huskies had scored with just under four minutes to play to go up 5-3, but BC rallied scoring with 44 seconds and nearly got the equalizer, but Johnny Gaudreau's wrister clipped the crossbar with 7 seconds to play. Tech advances to the Round of 16.

    [QUOTE=Fighting Sioux 23;5996907]They moved up their wedding date on short notice (i.e. told everyone this past Tuesday that they were going to get married this Saturday when they previously didn't have a date set). I had to rearrange my schedule so I could fly out Friday. It was crazy, and my wife was extremely stressed out...but it went well.

    All that needs to be said is IT WAS YOUR BROTHER IN LAW, **** not even blood

    Also, did anyone else see the tweet that NCAA.com is doing their "top 16 NCAA Champions" of all-time where people will vote on who they will want to advance? I thought it would be interesting to track that along with this thread.
    Typical NCAA slackers - only 16 teams.
