    I believe back when one game played Thursday night, and the other game was Friday, and then the winners played on Saturday, the Thursday team had massive winning percentage edge. If BC doesn't win, I would consider it the biggest upset ever.

    Yeah, not sure what the NCAA was thinking with that scheduling. When when was the last time a D-I hockey team was expected to play a second game roughly 24 hours after their previous game? That hasn't happened since... umm, let's see... last weekend. Checking some historical schedules, it has also happened from time to time in the past as well. It looks like every weekend of D-I hockey for the last several decades had a similar schedule for games.
    you do understand that one team dropped out right? So instead of making a team do a quick turnaround it made the right call to move the game to an earlier time so the team playing TWO games gets a few more hours or rest vs a team playing ONE game.

    let me clarify this because you aren’t comprehending. You described two teams playing each other twice with the same rest vs a team playing one game and another team playing two games within 20 hours. Want me to slow down so you can see the difference?

    one team = plays one game
    other team = plays two games in 20 hours.

    I don't blame ND but I will wait for my scolding.

    Since the seismic Holy Cross upset of #1 seed Minnesota in 2006, the top seeds in regionals have been vulnerable.

    Counting that 2006 field, there have been 56 number one seeds in a region (4 per tournament). 23 of them lost to the #4 seeded team in their first game, that's more than 41% of them. The 2005 tournament was the last one where all the #1 seeds won their opening game of the tournament.

    2006
    Holy Cross 4, Minnesota 3 (OT)

    2007
    UMass 1, Clarkson 0 (OT)
    Miami 2, New Hampshire 1

    2008
    Notre Dame 7, New Hampshire 3

    2009
    Air Force 2, Michigan 0
    Bemidji State 5, Notre Dame 1
    Miami 4, Denver 2

    2010
    RIT 2, Denver 1

    2011
    Colorado College 8, Boston College 4
    New Hampshire 3, Miami 1

    2012
    Cornell 3, Michigan 2 (OT)

    2013
    Yale 3, Minnesota 2 (OT)
    St. Cloud State 5, Notre Dame 1

    2014
    North Dakota 5, Wisconsin 2

    2015
    RIT 2, Minnesota State 1
    Providence 7, Miami 5

    2016
    Minnesota Duluth 3, Providence 2 (2OT)
    Ferris State 5, St. Cloud State 4 (OT)

    2017
    Notre Dame 3, Minnesota 2

    2018
    Air Force 4, St. Cloud State 1
    Boston University 3, Cornell 1

    2019
    American International 2, St. Cloud State 1
    Providence 6, Minnesota State 3

    Really interesting stuff. Definitely shows anything can happen in the first round, particularly as of late. And I hate that my school has been a part of so many of those on the bad side in the last ten years.

    Happy to be a two seed, I guess.

    So did North Dakota have positive cases but still playing?
    No. McMahon retracted.

    Actually the team that should have been selected instead of Notre Dame would be a perfect fit for this regional, Army.

    Because they don't care about Covid in some areas of the country.

    I do think this warrants some sort of schedule adjustment if they are able to with regards to the TV slots.

    Not sure if they could move the day of the game (probably unlikely) but at least give them an earlier game time. They were already the night game, plus imagine the disadvantage of that going well into the night with some potential overtime.
    This is fair. I don't know that they'd be able to move the game to Friday given practice and testing protocols, but at least moving the BU-SCSU game to the early afternoon would give a bit of extra rest for that game's winner.
